To avoid mishaps in the air the USA and Russian militaries are notifying each side about where they are operating, but they are not coordinating by sharing intelligence and targeting information. While the 50,000-strong force faces "the problem of supply, the problem of training, and problems of positioning the force", those things can be worked out fairly rapidly, "if we get the authorities we need" from Washington, he said.

"There'll be Kurds attacking Raqqa", Townsend said Wednesday.
