The source said: “the Americans were aware of the issue and were convinced with it through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; in order for him to receive the area agreed upon with the Turks, in addition to gaining control of it with military support from Qatar and Turkey, but during his meetings with the commander of the Syria Democratic Forces, the latter refused and confirmed that the leadership of the Syria Democratic Forces rejected the Turkish plan and did not accept to withdraw from the agreed area,” and the source continued: “but after the Kurdish rejection for this demand, Turkey said that it will get that area either by agreements and understandings or through militarization, and after the US President Donald Trump announced the withdraw from Syria for the first time at the end of December 2018, the Kurds agreed to the Turkish condition, however, Turkey met that agreement by declaring that the Turkish offer was over and no longer available.”
