    SYRIA - The leaders of Russia, Turkey, France and Germany have called for a lasting ceasefire in Syria following violence in last remaining major rebel stronghold.

    A constitutional committee should meet by the end of the year, the leaders of the four countries, who gathered for a summit in Istanbul, said.

    Ankara, which supports the rebels seeking to overthrow president Bashar al-Assad, and Moscow, Assad's key foreign ally, recently brokered a deal to create a demilitarised zone in Syria’s Idlib region. French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters that the international community would be watching to make sure that Russia and Turkey respect the agreement they have negotiated.

    Speaking after the four-way summit on Saturday, he said: "We will all be extremely vigilant to ensure that these commitments are met and that the ceasefire is stable and sustainable.

    "We are counting on Russia to exert a very clear pressure on the (Syrian) regime which very clearly owes it its survival."

    Under their deal last month, Turkey and Russia agreed to create a buffer zone around Idlib amid fears of an impending assault on the northwestern province. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Turkey was fulfilling its obligation regarding the agreement on Idlib. The process was not easy and Russia plans to continue cooperating, he said.

    In a joint statement, Macron, Putin, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel also called for a committee to be established to draft a new Syrian constitution. Mr Erdogan told reporters that should be done "as soon as possible", adding he hoped it would be before the end of the year.

    SYRIA - The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced on Wednesday afternoon that their troops had destroyed a Turkish military vehicle in a retaliatory attack in northern Syria.

    “While our forces are leading a fierce struggle against the ISIS terrorist organization, the invader Turkish army targeted our positions along the border, violating all military engagement rules,” the SDF statement began. “We, as the Syrian Democratic Forces, emphasize that we have the right to retaliate against any attack on our lands and, if necessary, we will not refrain from exercising this right,” they continued.

    “In this context, on October 31st, the invader Turkish army violated our borders, shelling the civilian population of Selim village in the Kobane region. In accordance with the rules of military engagement, our forces carried out an action. As a result, a Turkish military vehicle was destroyed,” they added.

    The SDF has released an image that they claim is the destruction of the Turkish military vehicle. The Turkish Ministry of Defense has yet to respond to these claims from the Syrian Democratic Forces.

    SYRIA - US forces have been handing over suspected jihadists captured in Syria to the authorities in Iraq

    SYRIA - US forces have been handing over suspected jihadists captured in Syria to the authorities in Iraq, where they face torture and botched trials, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Wednesday. The New York-based watchdog said the United States had transferred suspected Daesh members for trials in Baghdad.

    “The US should not be transferring Daesh suspects from Syria to Iraq or elsewhere, if they will be at risk of torture or an unfair trial,” HRW’s Nadim Houry said.

    The rights group said independent observers told them that several foreign defendants — including from France, Australia, and Lebanon — were tried in Baghdad recently and reported being captured in Syria. In some cases, the defendants said they had never been to Iraq before.

    “Faced with the refusal by many countries to take back their nationals, the US seems to have taken the easy way out by transferring some to Iraq and be done with it,” Houry said.
    The fate of hundreds of foreign suspected Daesh members detained by the Kurdish forces in the semi-autonomous northeastern region of Syria has become something of an international political and legal hot potato.

    Most of their governments have refused to repatriate them for trials at home and the Kurdish administration holding them has signalled it did not intend to try them locally.
