For the first time ever, Israeli TV podcasted several reports, which were shot in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) territory in northeastern Syria. The reports, which were produced by Journalist Moav Vardi, where podcasted by the Channel 11 earlier this month.
In the reports, Vardi can be seen with SDF fighters in different areas of northeastern Syria and on the frontlines against ISIS in the Middle Euphrates River Valley. The Israeli journalist even interviewed the group’s General Commander Ferhat Abdi Sahin, who is known by his nom de guerre “Mazlum Kobane.”
Vardi’s reports led to an outrage among Syrians on different political sides, especially that they coincided with the U.S. recognition of Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan heights.
The U.S. step was condemned by both the Syrian government and opposition, but not by the SDF or its political wing, the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC). Syrian Kurdish officials in northeastern Syria remained silent and didn’t comment on the matter.
The SDF is apparently approaching Israel and Israeli-linked organizations in an attempt to get a wider support from the U.S, which is fueling separatist intentions of the Kurdish-dominated administration in northeastern Syria.
