A statement released by Media Office of the Syrian Democratic Forces runs:
”Pro-Turkish occupation media outlets have circulated false news and disinformation claiming that our forces had sent fighters to the war in Ukraine. We affirm that this information is untrue and comes in the context of the desperate attempts of vilification against our forces.
The SDF is a Syrian national force fighting to protect the region and the peoples within the Syrian geography against various forms of terrorism and occupation attacks. In addition, it continues to perform its duties with resolve and determination.”
