The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces withdrew fully from the Turkish-besieged border town of Ras al-Ain in northern Syria Sunday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said.

The SDF commander Mazloum Abdi on Saturday said Kurdish forces would withdraw from a 120-kilometre (70-mile) long strip of Syrian territory along the Turkish border under a US-brokered ceasefire deal to stem a Turkish military offensive, as soon as they were allowed out of Ras al-Ain.
