Residents in Manbij have participated in vast demonstration in recent days, calling for expulsion of the Kurdish forces from the region.
Dissident-affiliated websites reported on Saturday that people in the key town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo took to the streets and condemned the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for killing two young civilians after torturing them, and called for the expulsion of Kurds from the region.
The Orient net reported that hundreds of people in Manbij poured into the street and protested at the SDF’s criminal and cruel measures against civilians.
The popular uprising in Manbij came after people found the tortured bodies of two young men in the village of Qabr Imo East of Manbij, the websites said, adding that the two were in SDF custody.
The protestors urged the SDF to leave their region.
