BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – A number of operatives belonging to a Turkish-backed spy cell were arrested by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the city of Kobane (var. Ayn Al-Arab) this week.

According to the official media wing of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), the Turkish-backed operatives belonged to a special operations network that was identified as the “Qiyam Movement”.

Among the operatives that were captured, the YPG listed the following:

“Abd al-Muhaiman, who lives in the city of Jirablus, said that one day he was offered by intelligence service for the Turkish government in the city of Manbaj. His job would be to provide security information and precise coordinates.

Abdul Mohsen was known as Ahmed Yassin, who was then a member of the Manbic Military Council: Ahmad comes from Raqqa, the father of two small children, he was working before working with Abdul-Muhayb and receiving assignments from Abu Imad, which was led by the Turkish government,”

“They asked us to assassinate senior military commanders,” Yassin said. “They also said that you can target administrators in civilian institutions and Arab tribal leaders in Manbaj, saying in one word that sabotage is the most important thing,” the YPG added.

Operating murder squads however is not completely legal. Certainly not when there is no war.
