Considering SOHR is an outlet for the coalition and has long supported the destabilization/balkanization of Syria. A video is available at the link below
Clearly the US is going nowhere- the negotiations between the SDF/YPG/PKK and Damascus are 100% disingenuous. Deceitful. Duplicitous. Dishonest.
That reality inspired this post

Necessary background since most people still believe Turkey & the US are lovers. They aren't. Turkey is the betrayed party in the tryst the US is having with Kurdish terrorists. Though Turkey has tried to win back US affection. The US has repelled Turkey in favour of it's new love... (simplistic breakdown)

10-Year Deal: PYD Official Explains Why US Won't Halt Support to SDF
(from May 2018)
"The US is unlikely to withdraw from Syria and halt its support to the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the north of the country, as the two parties concluded a 10-year agreement on military assistance, a representative of the Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD) told Sputnik.
The US and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) concluded a 10-year agreement on military assistance, Ewwas Eli, one of the leaders of the Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD) told Sputnik Turkey, casting doubts on the US's plans to leave the region.
"I believe that the US will not withdraw from Syria since this step would not meet their interests," Eli presumed. "Besides, there is an agreement on military assistance between the US and the SDF for a period of 10 years. Therefore, Washington will provide support to the SDF during this time."
According to the PYD leader, "The US brought the issue of the pullout from Syria to its agenda to exert pressure on Arab countries and receive funding from them."Hope you didn't believe the spin that the US was leaving? 5/6 eyes media, alt and msm, claims that constantly- Hooey!
"For his part, a high-ranking SDF representative also refuted reports regarding the withdrawal of US troops from the region in an interview with Sputnik.
"American representatives constantly tell us that they do not intend to leave Syria," he emphasized. "If they had such plans, they would have gradually reduced their military presence in the region. On the contrary, the US is beefing up its presence, building new military bases in the Deir ez-Zor region, boosting its military activity in Manbij and on the Syrian-Iraqi border."
He further underscored that the SDF "has concluded a number of agreements with the US."
"If the United States were going to withdraw its troops from Syria, they would not have made such a large military investments in the region," the SDF representative added, referring to a number of US military bases in northern Syria. He refused to specify the exact number of bases, as well as the number of military personnel stationed there for security reasons.
According to some estimates, there are about 22 military bases and 5,000 American troops deployed in SDF-held territories in northern Syria."Personally, I've always thought there was more then the claimed 2,000 coalition troops present in the north of Syria. My thinking is whatever is acknowledged- double it! And whatever number you get is probably closer to the truth.
