A Statement by the US Central Command on the events in northern Syria
The US Central Command issued an official statement on the recent events in northern Syria and the suspension of the military operations against Da’ash.
Vedeng News received a copy of it:
The US command said in a statement: “Syrian Democratic Forces temporarily suspended offensive operations against Da’ash in response to cross-border attacks by Turkey against the positions of Syria’s democratic forces in northern Syria. We expect this to be a temporary comment.”
‘Syria’s democratic forces are a key partner in the coalition to defeat Da’ash in Syria. We are equally committed to the security of Turkey and urge all parties to show restraint to calm the current situation and to ensure maximum pressure on the oppressor. The unified focus on the defeating of Da’ash is imperative.”
