Russian forces took over some bases evacuated by US soldiers in northern Syria after Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring against the YPG/PKK terror group in October 2019.
Moscow has since strengthened its presence by increasing its number of bases in YPG/PKK-occupied regions east of the Euphrates.
Russia has a total of 18 bases and hundreds of elements at military points in areas occupied by YPG/PKK terrorists in the provinces of al-Hasakah, Raqqa, and the districts of Manbij and Ayn al-Arab (Kobani) in Aleppo.
