Syrian Democratic Forces say Turkey is spreading fake news

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) denied the Turkish government's claim that 3 of its fighters fell martyrs while trying to enter Turkey-occupied areas.

SDF Press and Liason Center said in a written statement: "The Ministry of Defense of the invading Turkish state said on its website on 21 February that 3 of our fighters fell martyrs while trying to cross into the areas under Turkish state occupation."

The SDF continued: “This information is not correct. Our forces did not have any mobility in the area in question. The occupying Turkish state targets civilians in Rojava Kurdistan and Northern Syria. In addition, it wages a special war by spreading fake news. Our peoples and the public should act consciously against these special war policies.”
