'We Won’t Be Taking Orders From US' : Syrian Democratic Forces Commander

Orders From US
The US has voiced concern about the Arab-Kurdish units of its allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) decision to put on hold their operation against Daesh in eastern Deir ez-Zor and send fighters to Afrin to help the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in their battle against the Turkish military and Free Syrian Army units.

In an interview with Sputnik, a SDF unit commander Mehdi Kobani, said that many of his fighters were now in Afrin defending the city against the advancing Turkish and FSA forces.

“We suspended our operation against Daesh in Deir ez-Zor because of the continuing attacks on Afrin. We won’t be taking orders from the US, accommodating its wishes and watching [Afrin] being attacked. For reasons of security I will not disclose the exact number of SDF fighters currently engaged in Afrin,” Kobani said.

“The Americans know how effective the SDF is in fighting Daesh and they fear that the suspension of our operation could strengthen the jihadists’ hand in the region,” Kobani noted.
