Al- Raqqa - SMART

On Friday, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) arrested former fighters from the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade, which belonged to the Free Syrian Army before.

Local sources reported that the YPG arrested 13 former fighters in the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade, although the brigade joined the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to fight the Islamic State (IS). The sources added that the YPG launched post-midnight raids in the neighborhoods of al Ramila and al-Mushalab, al-Raqqa.

The sources noted that the residents of the al-Ramila neighborhood complained about the YPG night raids and fighters arrest. The sources added that many fighters of the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade and its Commander Abu Issa are living in the al-Ramila neighborhood.

In recent months, clashes erupted between the SDF fighters and fighters of the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade in different areas in al-Raqqa, causing injuries and mutual arrests. The American troops interrogated Abu Issa, the commander of the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade.

The SDF excluded the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade from participating in the battle to control al-Raqqa and expelled  IS out of the city, even though the al-Raqqa Revolutionaries’ Brigade is one of the largest factions in the area.

The SDF are comprised of predominantly Kurdish multi-ethnic, Arab, and Assyrian/Syriac militias led by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). The SDF operate mostly in Northern Syria, including al-Raqqa and Deir al- Zor.
