On November 11, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper responded that the United States would not abandon its Kurdish allies, but he also made it clear that the United States would not interfere in military operations in Turkey.
We will not abandon our Kurdish partners, and the U.S. military is still with them in other parts of Syria, Esper told reporters at the Pentagon. Because they helped us destroy ISISs Khalifa, we will continue to work closely with the Syrian Democratic Army, but I will not involve the U.S. military in the long-term relationship between Turks and Kurds. Conflict is not our aim in Syria. ?
CNN commented that the Kurds clearly felt abandoned.
Ironically, there is a poster hanging outside the U.S. military base in northern Syria commemorating the Kurdish soldiers who died in the battle against ISIS.
On September 9, Turkey announced that the Turkish army had launched ground military operations against Kurdish forces in northern Syria.
