CAIRO – 1 November 2019: General Commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Mazloum Abdi demanded the United States on Thursday to fulfill its obligations in relation to Turkey’s non-abidance by the ceasefire agreement with Washington.

Abdi pointed out that Turkey “and Jihadists” are occupying villages dwelled by Christians and Tal Tamer, which is predominantly inhabited by Assyrians. Tal Tamer is being defended by the Syrian Military Council (MFS) and others.







The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed earlier that the SDF had restored control over five villages from Turkey and proxies. However, clashes occurred earlier on Thursday near Ain Issa as Turkey assaulted the SDF, which killed eight militants fighting for Turkey as they entered a mine area.

Fifteen individuals were killed and 10 others were injured by a car bomb on Thursday in an Afrin market. The city, located in Aleppo Governorate, is witnessing recurrent bombings. The bloodiest of which took place on July 11 as an area inhabited by citizens displaced from Ghouta was targeted. Eleven were killed and 17 were injured.

Afrin has been occupied by Turkey and its proxy, the Free Syrian Army, since March 2018 when Turkey launched Olive Branch Operation kicking out the SDF.
