Washington will "adjust" its delivery of weapons to an anti-extremist alliance in Syria dominated by Kurdish fighters, Kurdish officials said Monday, insisting that collaboration with the United States will "continue".The US began supplying weapons directly to the YPG earlier this year as part of its support for the anti-extremist Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance, which is dominated by the Kurdish militia.Washington was less explicit, however, describing only "pending adjustments" to its support for the YPG, which forms the backbone of the SDF that ousted the Daesh (ISIS) group from Raqa last month.The relationship has caused tensions between Washington and Ankara, which launched its own military intervention in Syria last year targeting both Daesh and the YPG.
