Of Course, The US Will Exempt Their Zone of Kurdish Occupiers and Occupation from Sanctions

As Israel 2.0 gestates (gradually develops) 
A few, a very few, flashbacks on the topic.

Kurdish-led authorities in Syria in talks regarding mechanism for U.S. sanctions exemption

Badran Jia Kurd, a vice president of the regional administration, said the sanctions would have an impact on his area which trades with government-held Syria via local merchants and uses the Syrian pound, which has plunged in value.
“They will lead to increase in prices to a very great degree and to weakness in trade activity with the Syrian interior, while on the other hand crossings to Iraq are closed, meaning the region was already living an economic siege,” Jia Kurd said.
“They told us the self-administration regions will be exempt from the Caesar sanctions but the mechanisms and means to achieve this exemption are being discussed with the international coalition.”
The sanctions are named after a Syrian military photographer who smuggled thousands of photos out of Syria showing mass killings, torture and other crimes.
“We hope there will be international support for our regions given that they are fighting a continuing war against global terrorism,” Jia Kurd wrote.
The coalition has said the sanctions do not impede humanitarian assistance or hinder “coalition stabilization activities in northeast Syria”.


Jeffrey did not specify the content of the American offer. Still, he pointed out that Washington “wants to see a political process, which may not lead to a change of the Syrian regime, but demands the Syrian regime to change its behavior and not to provide shelter for terrorist organizations, and a base for Iran to extend its hegemony over the region.”
Assad does not have to leave. He simply has to comply.
 Arabic Language Spokesperson for the US Department of State, Erica Chiusano, identified what she called the “only exit strategy” for the Syrian regime, in light of the economic crisis.
Chiusano said in a statement that Enab Baladi got by email on 10 June, that “UN Security Council Resolution 2254 is the only exit strategy available to the Syrian regime, and the regime should take irreversible steps to implement a political solution to the Syrian conflict that respects the rights of the Syrian people and their desires or will face more targeted sanctions and isolation.”
Chiusano confirmed that Washington will continue to impose sanctions aimed at increasing economic pressure on the regime until there is irreversible progress in the political track.
