Russia Establishes Base In Northern Syria

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 20 March 2017
Under a bilateral agreement, the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said Russia was setting up a military base in northwestern Syria and will help train its fighters. It is a step that would anger Turkey as it tries to block Kurdish gains near its borders. The Russian defense ministry, however, said it had no plans to open any new military bases in Syria. It said a branch of its "reconciliation center", that negotiates local truces between the warring sides in Syria, had been located in Aleppo province near Afrin.
