People Expel US-Backed SDF Terrorists From Raqqa

The residents of a region in Raqqa province expelled the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces amid intensified popular protests by civilians against the SDF, local sources said.

The people in the village of Jadideh Kahit East of al-Katameh town in Eastern Raqqa clashed with a group of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who were arresting civilians in the region and expelled from the region, the sources in Raqqa said.

The sources pointed to intensified differences and tensions among civilians and Kurdish forces in Raqqa, and said two SDF militants were killed in a bomb blast carried out by unknown assailants in al-Shaher village in Eastern Raqqa.

In Deir Ezzur province, meantime, the residents of the towns of Sweidan Jazira, Geranij, al-Mavilah and al-Hasin as well as the villages of Jadid Akidat and Jadid Bekareh in Eastern and Southeastern Deir Ezzur revolted against the SDF and their plundering of oil reserves.

The civilians also called for expulsion of SDF fighters after blocking Deir Ezzur-Hasaka Road. The Kurdish fighters attacked the civilians and arrested a number of them.

In a relevant development in late April, people in several parts of Eastern Deir Ezzur staged protest rallies against the SDF, and forced the SDF militants and commanders out of the region.

Masses of people in the villages and towns of Mahimideh, al-Hisan, Safirah al-Tahtani, Safirah al-Foqani, al-Wasiah, al-Mawilah, al-Hasin, Qaribah, al-Azabah and al-Basirah in Eastern Deir Ezzur took part in anti-SDF rallies over the past two days, local sources in Eastern Deir Ezzur said.

Meantime, the Syrian army continued its military advances in other parts of Syria over past 24 hours.

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army’s operations in provinces across Syria.
