Turkey Forms New Arab Army Front to Fight Rojava

WAAR-DUHOK:

The leaders of some 50 Syrian Arab tribes in Turkey on Tuesday declared they would form a new army to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) and the US-backed Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Rojava (northeastern Syria).

Convening in the Kurdish-majority city of Sanliurfa in northern Kurdistan (southern Turkey), the Arab tribal leaders “discussed means of establishing a unified front against terror,” reported the Turkish state-funded Anadolu news agency.

The tribes’ meeting is the latest in numerous Turkish attempts since the beginning of the fight against ISIS in Syria to create a military force alternative to the Kurdish-led forces.
