RUSSIA WILL PROVIDE ARMING TO THE NEW GROUP

"Russian forces have begun to form military militia affiliated with them in the countryside of al-Hasakah, within the areas of Amuda, al-Darbasiyah and Tell Tamr, in northeast Syria… The mission of these militias will be to deploy in the positions evacuated by the SDF (another name for YPG)  on the Syrian-Turkish border," a local reporter stated.

According to the sources, the new local force will be under the direct command of Russia, which will also provide training, arming, and logistics.
