Aleppo - SMART

On Monday, a delegation from the Arab Coalition led by Saudi Arabia met Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) commanders in the city of Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) in Aleppo, Northern Syria.

An unknown source from the People's Protection Units reported that an Arab Coalition delegation that included what the source described as high-ranking officials visited Kobani on Monday. The source added that International Coalition officials accompanied the delegation.

The source added that the delegation included Egyptian, Saudi, and Emirati officials who met SDF commanders to talk about the future of the areas east of the Euphrates river and their military and administrative situation.

The source noted that both sides discussed how to fight the Islamic State (IS), ensure that it does not return to the liberated areas, and how to sustain the security level in SDF-controlled areas.

Local activists reported that the meeting coincided with International Coalition warplanes flying over Kobani.

The activists suspected that the aim of the meeting was to discuss the International Coalition’s training of border guards to deploy them at the Iraqi and Turkish borders. Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates will allegedly pay for the deployment, but SMART has not been able to confirm this information yet.

The SDF denied the arrival of the Arab Coalition in Kobani. Raniya Muhammad, an official in the Media Directorate of the Autonomous Administration in Kobani, stated that the Autonomous Administration officials have not met with any delegations.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia denied the news of its forces' deployment in Northeastern Syria, after media outlets reported news of Arab Gulf forces participating in the battles against the IS.

Three months ago, Saudi Arabia promised to donate $100 million dollars to secure the areas liberated from the IS in Eastern and Northeastern Syria. Last month, an official in the United States Department of State said that Saudi Arabia transferred the money to Washington.
