Vice President Mike Pence announced Thursday that the U.S and Turkey agreed on a five day ceasefire in Syria. During that time, the U.S will facilitate the withdrawal of Kurdish YPG fighters from Turkey's proposed safe zone. The agreement also lifts U.S sanctions that were imposed on Turkey for launching a bloody offensive that Washington permitted. Trump nonetheless hailed the ceasefire over Twitter, claiming "Millions of lives will be saved."
How will the ceasefire be enforced? Details haven't been disclosed. But it will be difficult for the U.S to monitor the ceasefire since after pulling out all its forces from Northern Syria last week.
