Kurdish YPG militia stuck between Turkey and the US

France 24 Friday, 18 January 2019
Kurdish YPG militia stuck between Turkey and the USThe Kurdish YPG militia is stuck between a rock and a hard place... On one side, Turkey, which considers the militia a terrorist branch of the outlawed PKK, the Kurdistan Workers' Party, and on the other, the United States, which has supported the YPG in its efforts to dislodge the Islamic State Group from its positions in Syria. But US President Donald Trump made a shock decision last month to withdraw all American troops from Syria, leaving the YPG high and dry and having to face an increasingly hostile Ankara on its own. Despite the US decision, YPG continues to fight the remaining pockets of the Islamic State Group in the country. President Trump affirms that the Islamic State Group has been completely driven out of the country, despite evidence to the contrary. FRANCE 24 spoke to members of the militia about the tense situation.
