YPG Turns to Assad

US President Donald Trump removed troops from northern Syria –- a move the YPG considers a stab in the back. Now, in the face of Turkey’s advance, the YPG struck a deal with Syria’s Bashar al Assad in exchange for protection. Russian President Putin is also acting as a powerbroker to prevent a direct confrontation between the Syrian regime and Turkish troops. So, can all sides meet at the negotiating table?
