According to information obtained from local sources, PKK/YPG took action against Arabs on the grounds that they supported the operations launched by Arab tribes in Deir ez-Zor on August 27. Terrorists detained 8 young people in the village of Azme, where Arab tribes retreated to prevent civilian casualties.
The fate of the detained Arab tribe members is unknown.
Clashes in Deir ez-Zor
The operations launched against PKK/YPG by Arab tribes under pressure from the organization in the Deir ez-Zor province in the east of the country have entered their 12th day.
The clashes, which started on August 27 in Deir ez-Zor province, continue at various intensities in the provinces of Raqqa and Hasakah and in the Manbij district of Aleppo, with the participation of other Arab tribes.
Arab tribes, under pressure from PKK/YPG, had to withdraw from almost half of the 33 villages they had cleared from terrorists in order to avoid civilian casualties.
PKK/YPG occupation in Deir ez-Zor
All of the people in Deir ez-Zor, which the organization occupied under the name of “fighting DAESH” with the support of the US army, are Arabs.
The terrorist organization forcibly recruits Arab children in the occupied regions.
While the organization, which generates income by seizing the wells in the region and selling it to the Damascus administration through smugglers despite US sanctions, uses the income for its own activities, the people of the region are deprived of local services and aid.
