A split in the ranks of the “Syrian Opposition Coalition”.
A new split happened in the ranks of the “Syrian Opposition Coalition” against its leader Nasr al-Hariri’s directing an explicit call for Turkey to intervene militarily in Syria against the “SDF”, which was met with strong opposition by the “Kurdish National Coalition”.
The General Secretariat of the “Kurdish National Council” expressed its hate with the demands of the leader of the “Coalition”, saying in a statement that it “categorically rejects Nasr Hariri’s demands to form what he called an international coalition to expel the SDF from Tal Rifaat and Manbij.
The council’s statement stated that the call by the head of the coalition Nasr al-Hariri for the Turkish presidency to intervene militarily in other regions of Syria is a violation of the sovereignty of the Syrian state and harms the relations between the components of the coalition itself, and such a call contradicts the goals of the coalition.
The “Kurdish National Council” considered that Hariri’s statements express only his personal opinion, and not the opinion of the entire coalition in reference to the existence of the differences between the parties that make up the “Opposition Coalition”, especially since his president’s call on Turkey to intervene can be used as a new excuse to carry out new military attacks.
It’s noteworthy that the head of the “Coalition” Nasr Hariri had called for the intervention of the Turkish forces in Syria, taking advantage of the targeting that took place in the city of Afrin in the northern countryside of Aleppo on the 8th of June.
Which resulted in the death of about 50 people dead and wounded, to head the Turkish factions accused the SDF of being responsible for the targeting, as it denied it back then.
