The Ahl al-Dar operations room issued an official statement confirming that it doesn’t follow any military party or faction, and its main goal is to liberate villages occupied by Kurdish YPG forces. In the statement, Ahl al-Dar claimed that the PKK\YPG forces forcibly evicted the villagers from their villages to which their fighters belong.
The Ahl al-Dar operations room was set up by a group of Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters inside the Euphrates Shield-held areas in the northern Aleppo countryside on June 17 . This followed the failure of US-mediated negotiations to withdraw PKK\YPG forces from several Arab villages in the northern Aleepo countryside, most notably Tal Rifaat.
Yesterday, the Euphrates Shield-held areas witnessed several Arab demonstrations against PKK\YPG. People demanded that they have been driven out from their villages.
It’s believed that Turkey stands behind the Ahl al-Dar statement and the demonstrations. The goal is to prepare the public opinion for the launch of its new military operation in Afrin if Russia fails to convince the Kurdish Democratic Union Party to hand over the area to the Syrian Arab Army.
