Clashes between US-backed militias and Turkey in Syria

Forces backed by Turkey and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Kurdish-Arab militia fought in Al-Raqa, Syria.

The armed conflicts occurred in the city of Ain Isa, north of the northern city of Al-Raqa, and there were casualties and large numbers of losses on both sides, the official Syrian news agency reported on Saturday YOU.

The clashes have also caused extensive material damage to private property and public facilities and the displacement of residents of villages near the conflict zone.

Worst of all, two civilians lost their lives on Friday in the villages of Al-Jahbel and Al-Mashrefeh due to fighting on the same day between US-backed forces and Turkey in Al-Raqa, according to the Syrian half.

Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict in 2011, Turkey has directed its attacks against the SDF, claiming that its ranks are made up of members of the Kurdish-Syrian People’s Protection Units (YPG, for its acronym in Kurdish) and links these with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK, for its acronym in Kurdish), which it considers a terrorist group.

Syrian President Bashar al-Asad insists, for his part, that all the forces of Turkey and the United States, both deployed illegally on Syrian soil, must leave the Arab country.

In fact, the Syrian government considers both the Turkish and US forces as occupiers, since they are in the country without authorization and, to make matters worse, they support terrorists with the purpose of looting Syrian wealth, in particular oil.
