1/ This is important. I received a copy of the deal between Kurdish SDF & Syrian government, incl some interesting details.

In this thread I'll tweet full text of the deal, which I have translated from Arabic into English.

I also prepared some maps to make it clearer.

2/ "Memorandum of Understanding

On 13/10/2019, a meeting took place between representatives of the Syrian government and the Syrian Democratic Forces, and this is what was agreed upon:"

3/ "SDF agreed to the entry of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the SAA control will extend over the entire region, starting from Ayn Diwar in the east until Jarablus in the west."

4/ "SAA forces will be moving into SDF territory using three axis:

1/ From Tabqa in northern direction towards Ayn Issa and its countryside. Also in northern direction towards Syrian Turkish border at Tell Abyad and towards the west."

5/ "Second axis from Manbij into the direction of Ayn al Arab on Syrian Turkish border until Tell Abyad and towards the west." (the agreement mentions only the Arab name of Ayn al Arab, which is called in Kurdish: Kobani).

6/ "Third axis from Hasakah/Tall Tamr, arriving in Ras al Ayn and towards the east arriving in Qamishli and then Al Malikiyah and towards the south."

7/ "The SAA forces will spread in the Manbij region, starting from Arima and along the Sajur river, sticking to previous deals regarding the distribution of forces in Arima."

8/ "By that, the SAA will be present in the entire region east and north of the Euphrates and in coordination with local military councils, while area between Ras al Ayn and Tell Abyad stays as an unstable combat zone until it is liberated."

9/ "SDF confirmed they are prepared to preserve the territorial unity of the Syrian Arab Republic and are under the flag of Syrian Arab Republic.

They will stand by the SAA in confronting Turkish threats to Syrian land under leadership of Mr. president Bashar al-Assad."

10/ This was the full text of the deal between SDF and Syrian government, translated from Arabic into English by me.

Thank you for attention.
