Members of the aforementioned militia raided several houses in the city of Raqa, head of the northeastern province of the same name, where they detained several people and took them to their camps to receive training under the name of compulsory service, reported the sources quoted by the national agency SANA.
Similarly, SDF armed groups raided the neighborhoods of Tabqa and al-Mahmoudli towns and surrounding villages in search of young men of service age.
Prior to these campaigns, this illegal armed formation imposed a total curfew amid a state of tension and popular anger towards these practices.
The Kurdish-majority SDF militia dominates most of Syria’s oil-rich al-Jazira region and receives weapons, money and training from U.S. occupation forces.
Popular actions are increasing against this group due to popular outrage arising from its criminal practices against the villagers and its servility to the U.S., in addition to the theft of Syrians’ crude oil and crops.
