translated from Spanish: Syria denounces US and Israel support for ‘terrorist’ militia practices

The Syrian government has denounced in a letter to the U on Sunday the support of the United States and Israel for the terrorist practices of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the Kurdish-Arab militias that control the northeast of the country.» Separatist terrorist militias calling themselves SDF continue their terrorist, criminal and repressive practices against Syrian people in Hasaka, Raqqa, Deri Ezzor and Aleppo provinces, supported by the US and coalition forces denounces the Syrian Foreign Ministry’s missive to UN Secretary-General António Guterres and the Security Council.»Further damascus the «lamentable harmony» of the SDF and its «separatism» with «the projects of certain U.S. client states carried out by the israeli occupation authorities,» according to the missive, collected by Kurdish television Rudaw.So, claims its intention to «recover every inch of the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic and release it of the abomination of terrorism to rebuild what terrorists and those who support them have destroyed.» This language is much harsher than that commonly used by the Syrian government, which commonly refers to the SDF as a «militia,» not as a terrorist group. A few days ago, the leader of a government-allied paramilitary group, the Al Baqir Brigade, warned in a video that they would attack the SDF to reclaim SDF-controlled territories. The SDF is a coalition of Kurdish and Arab militias whose backbone is the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). The SDF were key in the fight against the Islamic State and to expel the jihadists from northeastern Syria and so far have not staged major clashes with the Syrian Army. In addition, the SDF is the forces of the self-proclaimed Republic of Northern Syria. The authorities in the region have opened up negotiating channels to open the door to a political solution and have even become self-denominated by the Autonomous Northern and Eastern Syrian Administration to facilitate a possible agreement.
