Aleppo - SMART

On Thursday, the military council of the city of Tal Rif'at in Aleppo, Northern Syria, announced that Turkey and Russia have reached an agreement regarding the city. The agreement ensures civilians’ return and the expulsion of the Syrian government forces and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

Rami Abu Bahjat, a commander in the city's military council, stated that the agreement allows Turkish and Russian troops to manage the city. The troops will form a local council and civil police with the people of the city. Abu Bahjat added that the first stage of the agreement is the return of civilians to the city. Abu Bahjat confirmed that the civilians will return "soon."

Abu Bahjat added that civilians and dignitaries from the city attended a meeting with representatives of the Turkish government in the city of al-Bab on Wednesday. Most of the civilians preferred to return to Tal Rif'at.

Abu Bahjat noted that the civilians who wish to return to the city have to register and submit their names to Turkey for approval.

Abu Bahjat added that the second stage of the agreement will be to determine what will happen to the Free Syrian Army fighters from the city. Abu Bahjat noted that the agreement will apply to all areas that used to be controlled by the YPG in Northern Aleppo.

The fate of the city of Tal Rif'at has remained unknown since the end of the Olive Branch operation, which was launched by Turkey and the Free Syrian Army. During the operation, Turkey gained control of the entire Afrin area; however, the battle stopped at the edges of Tal Rif'at. Protesters called upon Turkey to continue the battle in order for civilians to return to Tal Rif'at.
