The US-backed Democratic Forces of Syria pledged to step up attacks on remnants and cells of a sympathetic organization, a day after an attack that killed two US soldiers in northern Syria.
"With the help of the international coalition, we will step up from our military operations to eliminate remnants of an organization calling for the pursuit of its sleeping cells, uprooting them completely and bringing stability and peace to our region," said the Syrian Democratic Forces led by Kurdish People's Protection Units.
The group claimed responsibility for a bomb attack in which two American soldiers and two civilians working for the US military were killed in northern Syria on Wednesday, weeks after US President Donald Trump announced the defeat of the organization there and would withdraw US troops altogether.
The attack in Manbaj was the largest in the number of US troops in Syria, apparently since it spread there in 2015.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights revealed that the Military Council in Manbaj, north of Syria, had arrested a cell operating under the direction of Turkish intelligence and Syrian armed factions loyal to Ankara.
The Kurds accuse Turkey of being behind these attacks, to justify a military action that is ostensibly against Da'ash, but will target Kurdish groups and establish a military occupation of their territories. Finished
