TOPSHOT - Turkish and Russian military vehicles drive on a joint patrol in the countryside of Darbasiyah town in Syria's northeastern Hasakeh province on the Syrian-Turkish border on November 1, 2019.  Turkey started joint patrols with Russia in northern Syria today to verify whether Kurdish forces have withdrawn from a key border zone in compliance with a deal reached between the two governments. The patrols follow an agreement they signed in the Black Sea resort of Sochi last week which gave Kurdish forces 150 hours to withdraw from a band of territory along the border, in a process that Russia said was now complete. / AFP / Delil SOULEIMAN
