The SDF is a militant group dominated by the Syrian Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG).
“We are working with the SDF. We work to help them focus on fighting IS. That is our sole responsibility, our sole commitment,” Pentagon Spokesperson Dana White told Anadolu news agency during an Oct. 19 briefing.
“We’ll continue to work by, with, and through the SDF to ensure that we defeat IS,” White added.
Turkey insists that its NATO ally the U.S. should drop its cooperation with the Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Syria and its armed wing, the YPG.
