Kurdish forces deny agreement to allow Syrian troops into Afrin.
The head of the Kurdish YPG forces in the Afrin Canton, Bahjat ‘Abdo, stated on Wednesday that all reports of his organization agreeing to allow the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) into this region are false.
Abdo told the Iranian TV ” Al-Alam ” that the Kurdish forces in Afrin are ready to repel the Turkish offensive .
” When there is an agreement with the Syrian government, a SDF spoken will announce this officially ” , Abdo added .
‘Abdo’s comments come just hours after a Kurdish official told Al-Mayadeen TV that an agreement had been reached by the YPG and Damascus to allow the Syrian Army into the Afrin Canton.
