AFP , Thursday 17 Oct 2019

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces said Thursday they are willing to abide by a ceasefire announced by Washington and Turkey, after nine days of fighting along Syria's northern border.

"We are ready to abide by the ceasefire," covering the area from Ras al-Ain to Tal Abyad, SDF chief Mazlum Abdi told a Kurdish TV station.

He spoke after Turkey said it had agreed to suspend its offensive for five days if Kurdish-led forces withdraw from areas near the border.
