BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – Video footage (shown below) reportedly showing clashes between Al-Bukhamiss tribesmen and US-backed Kurdish forces in the Syrian province of Raqqa has been released over pro-opposition social media sources.

The video appears to coincide with reports of gunfights and the burning of tires by Al-Bukhamiss tribesmen in the Euphrates town of Al-Mansura (southwest of Raqqa city) that sources say have been taking place since Sunday afternoon.

Despite this, the video cannot be confirmed in anyway at the present time and Al-Masdar News is not stating what opposition sources claim the footage to be of as fact.

Recent, opposition sources reported that Al-Bukhamiss tribesmen started a violent revolt against US-backed Kurdish forces in Al-Mansura after the tribe’s leader was arrested by the the latter’s security units.

The tribe’s leader was arrested for what?
Being pro government, pro IS or speeding?

Thank You.

p.s. I also tried Google but Your articles are currently the only listed source. Others link upon You.

The YPG form of democracy is not without problems.
I understand that it is similar to the Baath and East European Communist system of representaion of socially relevant groups. In this context the Al-Bukhamiss leadership may feel their tribe under-represented.

But there could be other reasons behind the current clash. Some tribes and individuals collaborated with IS.

It is not political but an ethnic problem and it will spread.
