President Trump approves arming Syrian Kurds

White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced on May 9,  that the day before, President Donald Trump had authorized the Department of Defense to deliver heavy weapons to the Kurdish tribes fighting ISIS in Syria.

Spicer made it clear that any land captured would be turned over to Syrian Arabs.

NATO partner Turkey has long opposed arming the Kurds. Turkey has been battling Kurds in its own country for many years.

Right now Kurdish forces could play an important role in capturing the ISIS stronghold Raqqa.

“The fight for Raqqa will be long and difficult, but ultimately, yet another defeat for ISIS, and another step in eliminating the ISIS threat that threatens peace and security in the region and the world,” Spicer said.
