Kurdish forces evacuate besieged Sari Kani
[Rudaw] Kurdish forces evacuated the embattled border town of Sari Kani on Sunday, according to Rudaw’s news hound in northeast Syria.

Sari Kani, which faced a fierce Ottoman Turkish offensive for 11 days, was included in a US-The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund...
ceasefire agreement that stipulated the Kurdish group the People’s Protection Units (YPG) withdraw from the town.

The fighting was traumatic for residents.

"Turkey came, brought ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
on our heads, and kicked us Kurds out," a Kurdish civilian from Sari Kani who declined to give his name told Rudaw, using the Arabic name for the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS). The civilian is now heading to the safer city of Hasakah.

The Kurdistan Red Islamic Thingy started evacuating civilians on Saturday and concluded the evacuation today when Kurdish forces left the town.

The entry came after accusations by Kurdish forces that Turkey had blocked a withdrawal path for the evacuation.

Rudaw’s news hound on the ground confirmed that there was a withdrawal of Kurdish forces and the town is empty of their presence.

A thirty-year old local source based in Tel Tamr to the south of Sari Kani confirmed that a number of vehicles and ambulances did withdraw from Sari Kani, numbering up to 30.

The first three ambulances which contained injured fighters sped off towards Hasakah where there is a major hospital the source, who declined to give his name, told Rudaw.

The other vehicles withdrew at a normal pace to Tel Tamr, carrying "light arms", and are currently based in Tel Tamr, according to the source.

This evacuation led by the Kurdistan Red Islamic Thingy concludes the presence of Kurdish forces and civilians in the area.

Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) spokesperson Kino Gabriel confirmed on Sunday that all their forces left Sari Kani. The YPG leads the multi-ethnic SDF.

On Saturday, after a day of being denied entry on the day prior, the Kurdish Red Islamic Thingy was able to make into Sari Kani to evacuate injured civilians. Tens of injured people were evacuated, but some were not reachable, according to the Kurdish group.

The evacuation had to be done as Turkey's President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
has threatened to restart operations following the ceasefire n if there is no withdrawal by the Kurdish forces.
