SDF: Turkey preventing withdrawal of Kurds

Head of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish militia in Syria, Mazloum Abdi, (pictured in forefront) accused Turkey of hindering the withdrawal of SDF "forces, the wounded and civilians" from Ras al-Ain area, thus violating the ceasefire agreement struck last Thursday.

In a phone interview with AFP, Abdi stated that he would like to see "a role for America in Syria, not only Russia and others monopolizing the scene."

He also affirmed the commitment of the SDF to fight against ISIS in the region. "We have restarted military action against IS cells in Deir Ezzor. Our forces are working there with the coalition forces," he added.
