While al-Tahrir Brigade accused YPG of controlling The Syria Democratic Forces and putting restrictions on the Brigade and the factions that have a small number of fighters and that fall under the Syria Democratic Forces, and that these groups are being marginalized, and that supplies were cut off earlier of the factions, and leadership of al-Tahrir Brigade demanded the restructuring of Syria Democratic Forces with a pledge and commitment by the United States, and that the Syria Democratic Forces’ continuation of exercising such acts will force them to withdraw from the formations of these forces.
