Kurdish troops
Nearly 1,000 Kurdish troops have been deployed in the town of Tal Abyad in Syria’s northern city of Raqqah on the border with Turkey following stepped-up US reconnaissance activity in the area. 

The deployment comes after US armored vehicles carried out two days of reconnaissance activity along Syria's border with Turkey, local sources here said.

The troops have been dispatched from the village of Ayn Isa south of the city Ayn al-Arab as 
reinforcements to 10 villages in the area, including Quneitra and Tal Fender near the Turkish border, the sources added.
