Syrian Democratic Forces “To the Public Opinion”
Despite all the efforts we did to avoid conflict, our commitment to the security mechanism agreement, and taking all necessary steps on our end, the US forces did not carry out their responsibilities and have withdrawn from the border areas with Turkey.
Turkey’s unprovoked attack on our areas will have a negative impact on our fight against ISIS and the stability and peace we have created in the region in recent years.
As the Syrian Democratic Forces, we are determined to defend our land at all costs.
We call on our Kurdish, Arab, Assyrian, and Syriac people to strengthen their unity and stand by the SDF in defense of their land.
General Command of Syrian Democratic Forces, October 7th, 2019
