    If we were more cooperative with the Turks we could have been in Idlib too but no we had to let a militia dictate our policy in Syria with them threatening us to stop fighting ISIS if we worked with Turkey.

    Its worth pointing out that this will probably end the war in Syria. The next phase will be to see what happens between the U.S. backed SDF and Russia backed Syrian Army.

    It's a usual problem of USA - they have bad goals, so they cant allow themself good allies.

    Nothing special. If they will not be loyal to legal government of Syria and Russia - they will be eliminated. I mean - Armenian advisers will be returned to Armenia, and then - Kurds will be demonstratively crushed with united Armies of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Russia.
    I hope, Yanks will try to use some of their vaunted Raptors to protect Kurds and we'll see its real "power" in the air-to-air battle.

    Whats going on Idlib? It looks like the Turks are trying to make a deal with Al-Qaeda linked militants there, will they turn in their weapons or be annihilated.

    Raqqa: IS 'capital' falls to US-backed Syrian forces



    A US-backed alliance of Syrian fighters says it has taken full control of Raqqa, ending three years of rule in the city by so-called Islamic State.

    Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) spokesman Talal Sello said the fighting was over after a four-month assault.

    Clearing operations were now under way to uncover any jihadist sleeper cells and remove landmines, he added.

    However, a US military spokesman later said he could only confirm that about 90% of the city had been cleared.

    Islamic State (IS) made Raqqa the headquarters of its self-styled "caliphate" in early 2014, implementing an extreme interpretation of Islamic law and using beheadings, crucifixions and torture to terrorise residents who opposed its rule.

    The city also became home to thousands of jihadists from around the world who heeded a call to migrate there by IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
