Syrian fighter jet shot by US not in anti-SDF operation — Kurdish politician

A member of the Syrian Democratic Council Rizan Hadu said, “The phrase used by the US shows that the Syrian warplane had not tried to hit the SDF positions and therefore the Damascus government’s version of the story about the attacks on ISIL’s positions is correct,” reported Fars news agency.

 

He said it is at this point that the US cannot make any lame excuses as it is trying to deteriorate the relations between the Syrian army and the SDF.

“This issue will have negative effects on the conditions of Qamishli, Aleppo and Afrin and it will cause the Syrian army and the SDF to enter a marginal war which will be harmful to the war on terrorism.
