The sources said that people from all walks of life, including Arab tribes, Kurds, Turkmen and other races have embarked on forming a popular resistance force in Manbij to face occupiers after the US and Turkish troops’ deployment and intervention in the region.
“The popular resistance force declared in a statement that it will confront any secessionist move and will never allow foreign occupiers, including Americans, French and Turkish forces to stay in the region,” the sources added.
The Kurdish-language Hawar news reported last week that thousands of civilians in Manbij took to the streets and gathered in al-Batlah square at the Eastern entrance of the town.
Hawar news went on to say that the popular uprising further spread across the Central parts of the town, adding that the demonstrators condemned the agreement endorsed by the American and Turkish armies over the town.
The protestors further called for the expulsion of occupiers from Syria’s territories, Hawar news said.
