The United States sent members of the military to the northeastern Syrian border with Turkey. The goal of US troops entering this area is to prevent further clashes between Turkish forces and Syrian Kurd forces.

This move came after Turkish forces carried out two major air strikes on the positions of Kurdish fighters in Syria and Iraq, in the middle of the last week. Information on the arrival of US troops at the border between Turkey and Syria was first transferred by Kurdish officials, but now the news was confirmed by the American forces.

"Coalition forces conduct joint patrols in the area of the Northeastern Syrian border with Turkey to assess the reports of the conflicts between the SDF and the Turkish forces," said an official from the US coalition.

"The aim of the patrol is to discourage the escalation of violence between our two most likely partners in the fight against ISIL and to further affirm our commitment to Turkey and SDF forces," the US official said.

The Russians are counting on help from The US

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow is ready to fully resume cooperation with the US on solving the Syrian Crisis. A statement was made during a joint news conference with Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi, who visited Russia.

During the news conference, Lavrov pointed out that Jordanian King Abdullah II has repeatedly stressed that joint US-Russian work in Syria is of crucial importance for resolving this conflict. "I assure you, we are fully prepared for it.

We expect Washington to demonstrate the same approach," Lavrov said.

Moscow hoped that the US dialogue on solving the Syrian conflict would start to emerge after a new administration came to power in Washington, but this has not happened for now.

Pentagon has published the number of victims

Yesterday, the US military announced a report stating that at least 352 civilians have been killed since the beginning of the US operation against ISIL in Syria and Iraq in 2014.

"We are sorry for the unintentional loss of civilian lives and we express deep sympathy to the families of those who have been killed in these attacks," the Pentagon said.

The Pentagon rarely reports on the number of civilian casualties in their operations, and when they report, the number is considerably smaller than other sources.

Airwars points out that more than 3,000 civilians were killed in American coalition airstrikes in this period, nearly 10 times more than the US military figures reported yesterday.
