Gaps Widening among US-Backed Militias in Northeastern Syria

Rifts are widening among the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militias in Raqqa, local sources reported on Wednesday, adding that popular uprising against the SDF has also intensified.

The sources further said that Ibrahim al-Shavakh nom de guerre Abu Teif al-Hendavi, an Arab commander of a SDF regiment in the town of Tal Abyadh in Northern Raqqa, was dismissed from his post.

The SDF members further arrested al-Shavakh, they said.

The sources further said that the SDF gunmen have captured a number of people accusing them of cooperating with the Free Army in the town of Solouk in Tal Abyadh.

In the meantime, three SDF militias were killed and several more were wounded after a bomb planted on their vehicle went off in the village of al-Mankhar East of Raqqa.

The SDF’s brutalities against people in Raqqa province have enraged them, making them to take to the streets in protest.

On Tuesday, the US dispatched a convoy of military equipment and troops to its base in Northern Raqqa to clamp down popular uprising against its forces and allied militants.

A long convoy of the US military vehicles left Iraqi territories for Northern Raqqa.

The convoy included 300 trucks carrying logistic and military equipment, arms and ammunition for the US troops’ base in Kharab Ashak region that is one of the most important bases of the US in Syria.

Popular uprising against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces has recently intensified in Raqqa province.
