SDF Commander-In-Chief: Our forces have nothing to do with the Istanbul attack

After the People’s Defense Center (HSM), the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) also refuted Turkey’s allegations after the deadly bomb attack that hit the heart of Istanbul yesterday.

The General Commander of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Mazlum Abdi announced on Monday that their forces had nothing to do with Sunday’s attack in Istanbul that claimed the lives of six people and injured dozens of others.

While Turkish officials were quick to blame the Kurdish freedom movement for the deadly attack, claiming that the attacker had come from northern Syria, the Headquarters Command of the People’s Defense Center (HSM) denied involvement in the incident, making it clear that they were against attacks directed at civilians.

In a Twitter post on Monday, the SDF Commander-In-Chief said, “We state that our forces have nothing to do with the Istanbul attack and deny the allegations that blame our forces.”

Abdi offered their condolences to the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.
