YPG calls on Syrian government to stand against Turkish invasion
YPG announced that their forces will be focusing on the fight against ISIS on all the fronts in the east of the Euphrates.
The General Command of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) called on the Syrian government to protect Manbij and other areas where YPG forces have withdrawn from against Turkish state’s occupation.
The statement reads as it follows:
“Due to the invading Turkish state’s threats to invade northern Syria and displace its people similarly to al-Bab, Jarablus and Afrin, we as the People’s Protection Units, following the withdrawal of our forces from Manbij before, announce that our forces will be focusing on the fight against ISIS on all the fronts in the east of the Euphrates.
In conjunction with this, we invite the Syrian government forces which are obliged to protect the same country, nation and borders, to assert control over the areas our forces have withdrawn from, in particularly Manbij, and to protect these areas against a Turkish invasion.”
