The Kurdish military has withdrawn from Syria`s northeast border

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces said its fighters withdrew from a key border town in northeastern Syria, fulfilling a part of the cease-fire agreement between Turkey and the U.S., as a large convoy of American troops also prepared to pull out of the country and its protracted conflict.

Ankara and Washington agreed to halt military operation in Syria on October 17. Erdogan gave the Kurds 120 hours to leave the border. Both sides have since blamed each other for breaching the agreement.
