Syria's Democratic Forces militias, led by the Kurdish protection units YPG, threatened the United States of America to stop the battle of Rakqa and withdraw if the latter would not take counter-measures against Turkish strikes aimed at the militias command center.

"SDF will withdraw from Raqqa’s battle if America does not take a tangible response to the Turkish strikes," YPG spokeswoman Nisreen Abdullah told Western media on Wednesday, describing such strikes as "unacceptable in the international law."

The Turkish warplanes launched air raids targeting the headquarters of the Kurdish protection units in Syria, which is the military wing of the Democratic Union Party PYD, and classified by Turkey as an extension of the PKK in Syria, and the Turkish army announced on 25 April to carry out air raids targeted "Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq and Jabal Qara Chuk in northeastern Syria at 2:00 am to destroy the separatist terrorist PKK’s hideouts targeting the security and unity of Turkey, adding that the operation killed 70 militants.

"We continue to fight against IS organization, but if there is no response from the US-led international coalition it must be justified. We are not such a stick they use to overcome their enemies," the militia spokeswoman added.

It is noteworthy that the United States of America expressed concern about the air raids carried out by Turkey targeting sites belonging to the militias of Kurdish protection units northeast of Syria and eastern Iraq.
