Locals in eastern Syria's Deir ez-Zoor continue to voice their discontent over the presence of the PKK's Syrian affiliate People's Protection Units (YPG) in the province, DS reported.
The Ukeydat tribe, one of the most prominent tribes in the area, was the latest to condemn the terrorist organization and its decisions in the region.
The tribe held a meeting on Monday (May 13) in Al-Shuhayl town in order to discuss the terrorist organization's killing of eight civilians.
The tribe released a statement following the meeting, condemning the YPG while urging it to retreat from the occupied regions. The statement also called on the US-led coalition to give back the region that traditionally belongs to Arabs.
It also demanded the release of the people who are detained by the YPG, the evacuation of shelters that are "no different from the concentration camps" and the punishment of the killers of the eight civilians.
Dozens of people in Deir ez-Zoor protested last week the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), dominated by the YPG.
