UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) — Mazlum Abdi, the commander of the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces, did not rule out the possibility that he would cooperate with President Bashar al-Assad in the event of a military operation by Turkey.
Last week, Turkish leader Tayyip Erdogan announced that a decision could be made in the coming days to clear the border area in northern Syria from the Kurds and create a security zone there for Syrian refugees in Turkey. In turn, the United States said it would not participate in the operation and withdraw troops.
In an interview with NBC, Mazlum Abdi said he was concerned about Turkey’s statement and called on Americans to influence Donald Trump’s decision.
“The people who fought together against international terrorism, against ISIS are now in danger, and they will have a big battle alone,” said the Kurdish commander.
He stressed that the troops, which should guard the captured fighters of the ISIS, are now forced to head to the border, waiting for the Turkish attack.
According to him, in the detention centers are 12 thousand people suspected of terrorism, captured during a military campaign led by the United States.
The SDF also said that US forces violated the agreement, leaving their positions.
