YPG/PKK replaces flag with new one in Syria’s Tal Abyad
Anadolu Agency videos show terror group hanged so-called military council's flag after taking down its previous one

RAQQA, Syria (AA) - YPG/PKK terror group has replaced its flag that it hanged in the northern Syrian town of Tal Abyad with a new one.

New videos shot by Anadolu Agency’s correspondents on the ground showed YPG/PKK has hanged a flag that so-called military council affiliated with the group uses, at the center of Tal Abyad town in Raqqa city, after taking down the previous one.

The replacement follows Turkey's pressures on the terror group. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday stressed that Turkey will clear off terrorist organizations with the establishment of a safe zone east of Euphrates River.

On Aug. 7, Turkish and U.S. military officials agreed to set up a safe zone in northern Syria and develop a peace corridor to facilitate the movement of displaced Syrians who want to return home. They also agreed to establish a joint operations center.

The agreement also envisaged setting up necessary security measures to address Turkey's security concerns, including clearing the zone of the terrorist YPG/PKK, a group the U.S. has sometimes been allied with.

Turkey has accused the U.S. of dragging its feet and having a different concept for the safe zone.

Erdogan on Wednesday said Turkey will initiate its own plans after two weeks if no results come from Turkey-U.S. safe zone deal.
