Sources close to terrorists said in mid-August that tens of militants from the SDF fled clashes with the ISIS in the battle over Raqqa.
The sources said that after the SDF sustained a large number of casualties in clashes with the ISIS terrorists in the city of Raqqa, tens of Kurdish fighters fled the scene and returned to their villages near Hasaka.
The sources close to the terrorists stressed that the SDF members fleeing in large numbers is the result of growing fear among younger Kurdish forces who were forced to join the anti-ISIS fighting and also the absence of SDF commanders in the frontlines.
Meantime, 150 SDF fighters who had fled the battle have been arrested, according to the latest reports.
