BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The tribal leaders of Deir Ezzor and Al-Raqqa issued a statement this weekend that called on their fellow Arabs to fight against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in eastern Syria.

Per the statement, the tribes of Al-Raqqa and Deir Ezzor call on Arabs within the SDF to defect; if the refuse, they will be labeled an enemy.

The statement comes after the tribal leader Sheikh Bashar Faysal Al-Huwaydi was killed in eastern Syria.

Huwaydi was the leader of one of the largest tribes in northern Syria; he was assassinated by unknown assailants in Raqqa city.

He was reportedly assassinated after leaving an SDF commander meeting in Raqqa city.

The Arab tribes have accused the SDF of assassinating him

Kurds/ISIS need to go. ISIS received US weapons via the PKK per leaked documents. US supplies ISIS weapons and also the PKK/YPK.

Funny fact : ISIS was commonly seen with AK-103 which, at the moment, was ONLY exported to Iran and to Syrian Police… And you could see AK-103 in ISIS hands in Libya too!!!!

Moreover, US are the #1 arms exporter. Everybody has US weapons and most of militaries, when they get new gear, sll these weapons as 2nd hand to 3rd world countries. The origin of weapons is meaningless unless these are brand new with low exports, e.g. the ‘undisclosed’ number of AK-103 to Iran.

Pathetic as usual! Dont see boxes and boxes of AK 103 amongst the stacks upon stacks of israeli/u.s. supplied weapons we see almost daily being uncovered in the areas being liberated by the saa?! Your comments seem to be getting even more desperate and lame each new one you spiel out! You should maybe go look elsewhere as this sites readers are obviously beyond your pathetic attempts to polish the turds dropped by israel and u.s.!

You seem to have forgotten that Pentagon re: Hillary Clinton arranged to ship these weapons from Lybia to “moderate rebels”?

Fake Information:

Conspiracy theories are surging on this site, causing more and more BS comments. SDF has no reason to murder the man, all other groups have reasons. Chances are is was not the SDF. We will have to wait and see.
