[size=18]The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that it will not extradite ISIS militants and their detained families to any party.
The commander of the "Syrian Democratic Forces", Mazloum Abdi, in an interview with a Kurdish channel, said that "ISIS militants arrested and their families we have, we are arrested, and we determine their fate."
Abdi stressed that the Kurds would not agree to hand over ISIS terrorists to Turkey or the Syrian government, even if they controlled the territory under the control of the SDF.
The Turkish military has launched a military operation, dubbed the "spring of peace" in northeast Syria against Kurdish militants, with the aim of creating a "safe area" inside Syrian territory.
Media reports say the SDF is holding about 11,000 ISIS militants, including family members, and 9,000 from Iraq and Syria and 2,000 from some 50 countries.
Iraq has announced, through its foreign minister, the readiness to officially receive and prosecute ISIS militants.
