The spokesman of the SDF militia, Aram Hanna, denied forming a joint operations room with the regime in the eastern Aleppo countryside to repel a possible Turkish attack.
“So far, the forces of our local military councils are deployed along the line of contact and the border strip,” Hanna was quoted as saying by al-Modon.
Local sources revealed that the SDF had dismissed dozens of soldiers from the Deir-ez-Zor military council for refusing to take part in a possible Turkish military operation in northern Syria.
According to sources, the measures by SDF coincide with battles against the National Army in Raqqa and Aleppo, and with Turkish threats of a major battle against it in northern Syria.
The Deir-ez-Zor military council rejected SDF’s orders to equip its military forces and support them in countering any possible military operation in northeastern Syria.
