Villagers protest against US allied militia in Syria

Villagers protest against US allied militia in Syria

Damascus, Jan 24 (Prensa Latina) Hundreds of people on Tuesday condemned the practices of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the United States, in the province of Raqa, some 450 kilometers northeast of this capital.

Activists quoted by local media said that Raqa residents rallied in al-Naeem square, where they chanted slogans denouncing the SDF’s crimes, especially the recent assassination of a woman and her child.

The outraged people drove out the militiamen and burned a military checkpoint near the city’s courthouse, the sources reported.

This Kurdish-majority militia dominates most of Syria’s oil-rich Al-Jazira region and receives weapons, money and training from US occupation forces.

Demonstrations and armed actions against this group have escalated notably in recent months in the villages under its control in the north and northeast of this Arab nation.

Practices such as the compulsory recruitment of young people, servility to the United States, the looting of crude oil and crops, as well as the eviction of families from their homes due to their proximity to US bases, have raised the indignation of local people who have increased their resistance against this group.
