High-level government sources told Yeni Şafak daily that a new map will be drawn including the Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, Raqqa, Al-Hasakah and Dery ez-Zor provinces of the country.

The essence of the deal will reportedly allow Turkey-backed forces to enter Aleppo and Assad forces will withdraw from the city. The prewar demographic structure would be taken as the base of this project.

Turkey and Russia will not accept the PYD / PKK terror corridor in northern Syria that aimed to include al-Hasakah, Tal Abyad, Ayn al Arab, Jarabulus, Al Rai, Azez, Marea and Afrin under the name of 'federation', 'canton' or 'autonomous region'.

Both countries will fight jointly against the PYD / PKK terrorist group under Turkish military launched operation Euphrates Shield, according to the new deal.

The areas will be handed over to the local elements and local assemblies after being liberated from the terror groups.

Around 1,300 square kilometers areas have already been cleared and security has been established in the region. Thousands of Syrians returned to their homes from Turkey.

FSA forces have reached the outskirt of the besieged Aleppo and advancing towards the city of al-Bab, an ISIL stronghold on northeast Aleppo.
