Locals in eastern Syria protest against YPG/PKK

DEIR EZ-ZOR, Syria

Arabs in eastern Syria on Saturday protested against the YPG/PKK terrorist group, which sells hundreds of trucks of oil every day to the region under the control of regime, leaving them without fuel.

The people living in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province called on the terror group to end the occupation of the oil fields.

According to local sources, around 1,000 people gathered in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor and staged a demonstration against the terrorist group.

Deir ez-Zor is a major link between Iran and Lebanon. Pipelines and trade routes from Iraq and Jordan also pass through the province.

With the help of Russia and Iran-backed militias, the central and western parts of Deir ez-Zor fell to Syria’s regime after Daesh/ISIS terrorists retreated from the region in November 2017.

Deir ez-Zor, bordering the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, is currently under the control of the YPG/PKK terrorist organization.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
