The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which acts as a facade for the US military occupation of northeastern Syria, has instituted compulsory conscription for service in Uncle Sam’s armed forces.
The population – loyal to the Syrian Arab Republic – took to the streets to protest. The Kurdish “police” “maintained public order” by firing live rounds of ammunition into the crowd. The three-day death count is at least 10 people.
On orders from the Pentagon, the SDF suspended the compulsory conscription it had imposed.
