DEIR EZ-ZOR/ANKARA (AA) – Six people have been killed by the YPG/PKK terrorist group in Syria’s eastern Deir Ez-Zor province, according to local sources.
The terrorist group, backed by U.S.-led coalition helicopters, reportedly raided the village of Abu al-Nital on Tuesday.
During the raid, YPG/PKK militants killed 10 civilians on the pretext that they were providing refuge to Daesh terrorists.
Dozens of civilians were also detained by the YPG/PKK, which has since laid siege to the village.
According to local sources, the group has ransacked a number of private homes in the area and seized private property.
The Syrian branch of the PKK terror organization, the YPG/PKK currently controls roughly 28 percent of Syrian territory.
Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
