On September 27, a top commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Rojda Felat, claimed in a video statement that 100 ISIS members dressed as SDF members have attacked the SDF.

The incident allegedly took place on September 26 and the attack was conducted from the ‘regime-held areas’ (an area controlled by the Syrian government). The ISIS members reportedly came from some area near Deir Ezzor.

Felat added that this is a “sign” that the Syrian government supported the attack.

28 SDF members were allegedly killed in the clashes with ISIS.

Felat is a commander of the Kurdish Women’s Protection Units (YPJ), one of the Kurdish militias that are a core of the SDF.

The statement came few days after the Russian Defense Ministry released pictures of US Speical Operations Forces positions deep inside the ISIS-held area near Deir Ezzor city as well as provided info that no clashes had been observed between ISIS and the SDF there.
