SDF Command member and Southern region commander Polat Can stated that all the Deir ez-Zor tribes support their forces, saying: “The youth’s intense participation in our ranks gives the message that there is no place for other forces in the region.”
From the beginning of the Operation Cizire Storm until now, while Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) forces continue liberating villages and regions of Deir ez-Zor, the youth of the region are joining SDF and taking part in the liberation of their lands. In addition, the region's tribes and opinion leaders express their support for SDF, emphasizing that the SDF rescued them from the tyranny of gangs.
Speaking to ANHA, SDF South Commander Polat Can said that more than 700 youths from the Begara tribe, the towns of Cezra, Kesra and Bumihemid and different villages have joined the SDF over two months. “Hundreds of youths from the region participating in SDF ranks gives the message to everyone that people of the region believe in the democratic nation project. The people of the region are warmly welcoming our forces,” said Can.
Noting that all the tribes in the region hold trust in the SDF, Polat Can said: “The people of Deir ez-Zor believe that the only solution against all the forces that want to create chaos in the region is SDF. They say that SDF is the path to solution, and that there is no other place for any force other than SDF. This is the decision of the people of the region.”
