U.S. and Turkish troops conducted their third joint ground patrol on Friday within a planned safe zone in northern Syria, along the Syrian-Turkish border, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said.
"Third land patrol within the planned safe zone started east of Euphrates River and Tal Abyad with the participation of the U.S. and Turkish army personnel, land vehicles and UAVs," the ministry said on Twitter.
The Turkish and U.S. forces are set to conduct a land patrol in the Syrian town of Tal Abyad.
While Turkey welcomes the joint patrols, it has also said the U.S. is not doing enough enough to set up the safe zone properly.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
