Kurdish commander Gen Mazlum Kobane makes an urgent appeal, telling @NBCNews  Syria's Kurds face what could become “the biggest ethnic cleansing operation of the 21st century... happening in front of the American army's eyes.” He blames Turkey and Trump. Coming up @NBCNightlyNews 

Once again, @realDonaldTrump  is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease a foreign strongman – this time betraying our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS.

Israel strongly condemns the Turkish invasion of the Kurdish areas in Syria and warns against the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds by Turkey and its proxies. Israel is prepared to extend humanitarian assistance to the gallant Kurdish people.

Thank you General Mazloum for your kind words and courage. Please extend my warmest regards to the Kurdish people. I look forward to seeing you soon. @mustefa2bali 

President Trump's capitulation to Erdogan over Syria is an unmitigated disaster and may lead to a resurgence of ISIS. Trump's impulsive decision to withdraw our forces and betray our Kurdish allies has done incalculable damage to our national security and standing in the world.

Gabbard is lying. US troops in Northern Syria weren't there for a "regime change war." They were there to deter Turkish aggression against Kurdish allies until there was a safe zone created. Her dishonesty here is gross. #DemocraticDebate 

Tonight as the Kurdish people look up at the stars here in northern Syria, they have many big decisions to make. Where to send their families? Who can they trust? Can they reconcile with the Assad govenment? Can the trust Putin? And why Trump started all this mess to begin with.

The top Kurdish commander in Syria, General Mazlum Kobane told @NBCNews  he is trying to pull his forces back from Ras al-Ayn, but Turkey is not allowing it. He alleges Turkey does not want Kurdish fighters to withdraw - a condition of the ceasefire - but to kill them.

Syria is complicated, but this is simple. A week ago, our Kurdish partners were secure, ISIS was at bay, and hundreds of their fighters were detained. Then the President talked to Erdogan late one night, and disaster was unleashed. Now we’re scrambling to contain the damage.

A sr military official told me US special forces troops distraught, upset, morally disturbed by having to tell their kurdish allies in Syria that, because of orders, their promises of defense won’t be kept.
