SDF members stormed a residential complex in the “Al-Nashwa Al-Sharia” neighborhood of Hasakah city and seized houses there by force after expelling its residents at gunpoint.

Local sources said that “SDF” members, after threatening the residents and demanding they evacuate the houses, stormed the residential complex and seized a number of Syrian governmental buildings which are the General Company for Water Projects and the General Company for Roads and Bridges.

Twenty families of government employees were displaced, who have lived in the neighborhood for decades and found themselves without shelter under the SDF threat to use weapons against their families if they refrain from evacuating. The sources pointed out that the targeted housing complex oversees the government buildings which US forces have captured and taken as their bases since residents of the complex can watch the transfer of weapons and ammunition in addition to US forces’ operations in the region.

“SDF” members also stormed the housing association dwellings of officers, non-commissioned officers, and members of the Syrian Army in the “Al-Omran” neighborhood in Hasakah city, and told the residents to evacuate within 48 hours. The dwellings contain 100 houses that belong to the retired officers and non-commissioned officers and their inheritors who have bought the houses within years, but SDF targeted them as well in the implementation of US orders.

  1. The SDF is a coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces, nearly 4 years after the “Civil War” in Syria. Which means that it has flourished under “Allied” Rebels, presumably supplied, armed and battle ready with strong backing from a Major Power. Gee, I wonder who that could be?
    It looks like a further attempt by the USA to implant the Kurds in the area between Turkey and Syria, something the Turks have vowed to eliminate.
    Could even be where the next regional war could be staged… “Rebels”. It looks like the USA is not taking the advice of the Syrian President, Mr Assad, who told them to “Get out of Syria”.
