Turkey, US hold 2nd safe zone joint patrols in N.Syria

US and Turkish troops conducted their second joint ground patrol on Tuesday within a planned safe zone in northern Syria, along the Syrian-Turkish border, ONA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

A convoy of four armored Turkish Armed Forces vehicles in the southeastern Sanliurfa province crossed the border and met with a U.S. military convoy to join the joint land patrol.

The Turkish and U.S. forces are set to conduct a land patrol in the Syrian town of Tal Abyad.

U.S. and Turkish troops conducted their joint ground patrol for the zone on Sept. 9.

On Aug. 7, Turkish and U.S. military officials agreed to set up a safe zone in northern Syria and develop a peace corridor to facilitate the movement of displaced Syrians who want to return home. They also agreed to establish a joint operations center.
