A large number of fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces have allegedly joined the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Al-Hasakah Governorate of northeast Syria, the Fars News Agency claimed on Saturday.

“Over 200 SDF fighters have recently defected and surrendered to the Syrian Army in Hasaka province,” a battlefield source told the Fars News Agency.

The Fars News sources said claimed that 1,000 people have been forced to join the ranks of the Syrian Democratic Forces in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

“The sources pointed to people’s discontent and anger from the Kurdish forces’ measures, and said that a group of civilians have recently engaged in fierce clashes with the SDF members in an SDF garrison in Northern Hasaka,” the Fars News report added.

The Arabic-language al-Arabiya news website quoted informed sources in Al-Hasakah as saying that 15 SDF fighters, including their senior commanders, have also defected from the group.

They added that the defected SDF members escaped to the regions controlled by the Syrian Army inside Hasakah city, noting that the SDF put its units on high alert after the incident.

“Over 40 SDF forces have defected in Raqqa and joined the Syrian Army after laying down their arms in al-Tabaqa in Western Raqqa,” the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik News Agency reported.

It noted that over 100 youth in Raqqa had also received amnesty after leaving the SDF-controlled areas for government-held territories.

AMN propaganda news can not anymore hiding the truth about what going on in the SDF controlled areas, every day there is an average of 7 – 15 SDF members killed by hostile actions, and the Arabs in these areas are not happy to be dominated by the Kurds.

Nice racism. SDF is mostly Arab though, and they don’t “dominate” anyone (except ISIS / al Qaeda etc.) Maybe take your agenda to Daily Sabah?
