Civilians stage protest against YPG/PKK in N Syria

News Service AA

Civilians in Raqqa staged a protest against YPG/PKK demanding that the terror group vacates the Syrian city, Anadolu Agency correspondents on the ground reported Wednesday.

Hundreds of people poured out to five different streets of the city in the northeast bank of the Euphrates River calling on the terror group to leave the city.

They also urged the Syrian regime forces to not exploit the vacuum left behind by the fleeing terrorists and use it to enter the city.

YPG/PKK terrorists opened fire at the protesters and kidnapped six civilians.

The protest was held against the terror group's forcible recruitment of youngsters, severe torture and occupation of their property.

The terror group also changed the name of the city to “Komun”, a move rejected by the residents.

YPG/PKK terrorists are using Raqqah as their headquarters and a place to control other occupied areas.

Raqqah, a former Daesh fortress, was captured by the YPG/PKK in October 2017 by air support from the U.S.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people.
