President Emmanuel Macron on Friday hosted representatives of the Kurdish-led force that defeated Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) extremists in Syria, promising France’s support in the fight against the remaining militants.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) had in late March flushed out IS from their last bastion in Syria but has warned that the militant group remains a threat in places.

Macron assured the SDF representatives, who were not named, of the “active support of France in the fight against [IS] which continues to be a menace for collective security,” AFP reports, citing the presidency.

Macron also vowed that financial support would be allocated to“respond to the humanitarian needs and the socio-economic stabilization of civilian populations in Syria.”

France (OTAN) will keep together with Israel-USA supporting terrorism in the middle east, that is for sure.

France was responsible for Israel getting nuclear weapons. Macaroni recently said Qatar is a strong Ally. France will be selling 36 or 38 jets to those Syrian killers. Other than Catholic heritage, pilgrimage sites, and great cathedrals/churches, France is worthless, Pagan wasteland.
