Pence announces Turkey has agreed to temporary ceasefire in Syria

Posted on

Vice President Mike Pence announced from Ankara on Thursday that Turkey has agreed to cease its military operation in northern Syria for 120 hours so that Kurdish forces can withdraw from the area. The big picture: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan previously said that he would “never” agree to a ceasefire , after the U.S. withdrawal from northern Syria paved the way for Turkey to begin a military assault on U.S-allied Kurdish forces that they view as terrorists.
