Syria: SDF commander on ‘safe zone’

Mazlum Ebdi, Commander General of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) spoke to Hawar News Agency (ANHA) about the ‘safe zone’ agreement reported to have been reached between Turkey and the US.

Ebdi said that they were having indirect talks with the Turkish state on the matter. He remarked that the talks have not reached a concrete result yet but are ongoing in order to achieve a final outcome.

Commenting on the allegations that decision has been made for the ‘safe zone’ to involve the region between Gire Spi (Tal Abyad) and Serekaniye, SDF Commander said the following;

“Our proposal, which we have submitted to all parties, is the inclusion of the entire border line in the ‘safe zone’. However, the Turkish state wants to implement it in the region between Gire Spi and Serekaniye.”
