Kurds want help from Russian aerospace forces to create a no-fly zone
According to the transcript available to the channel, last Thursday a meeting was held between the commander of the Kurdish forces as part of the SDS Mazlum Kobani Abdi and US deputy special envoy to the international coalition against IS (forbidden in Russia) William Rubak. At the meeting, Kobani accused the United States of betraying the Kurds and demanded either to stop the Turkish operation "Source of Peace" or to give an opportunity to conclude an agreement with Damascus and Moscow so that the Russian air forces close airspace over northeast Syria.

According to the channel, the US representative asked "not to make any decisions immediately" and convey the words of the commander to the US State Department, assuring that Washington is doing everything possible to stop the Turkish operation.
Earlier, Reuters reported that the Kurdish command requested the United States to create a no-fly zone over northeastern Syria, since the main losses of the Kurds are due to Turkish air strikes.
