Russian military convoy drives through Syrian Qamishli

A Russian military convoy of four armoured vehicles drove through the northeastern #Syrian city of #Qamishli on Thursday.

It was not immediately clear from the video, taken by a Kurdish television channel, where the forces were headed.

Russian forces started deploying in the area on Wednesday following an agreement with Turkey to police the withdrawal of Kurdish fighters to a depth of 30 kilometres (19 miles) from the border in line with Turkish demands.

The deal reached between Ankara and Moscow which allows Turkey to maintain control over areas in northeast Syria that it has taken since Oct. 9, when it launched an offensive against Kurdish fighters it considers to be terrorists.
