Infighting Resumes between US-Backed Militants in Northeastern Syria

Infighting Resumes between US-Backed Militants in Northeastern Syria
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and other US-backed militant groups engaged in a fresh round of clashes in Raqqa province on Tuesday as similar tensions in Raqqa city have increased.

SDF's security forces arrested Commander of Thowar al-Raqqa Brigade Abu Amar in the town of Ein Issa in Northern Raqqa.

Also, local sources reported that the SDF gunmen opened fire at Abu Amar's vehicles to stop it only a week after heavy fighting between the two US-backed militant groups in Raqqa city's neighborhoods.

Other sources in Northern Raqqa reported that four SDF militias were killed in a blast in the 93rd Division Base near a base of the American and French forces in Ein Issa.

The SDF kept its gunmen on alert after the explosion while the US forces shot flares over the field for hours and started reconnaissance planes over the region.

The SDF claimed that the blast occurred due to military exercises for defusing landmines.

In a relevant development on Sunday, unknown attackers opened fire at a group of the SDF in al-Karamah settlement in Eastern Raqqa, killing a militiaman and injuring nine more.

In the meantime, over eighty civilians gathered in al-Sa'ah Square in Raqqa city and protested against SDF's forced recruitment, calling for release of their arrested young men. Also, a field source pointed to the popular uprising against SDF in Raqqa city in recent weeks, and said the SDF has come under a fresh wave of attacks.
