A recent defector from the Syrian Defense Force (SDF) is interviewed on the Syrian conflict and the role of different Kurdish groups in the conflict. The defector delves into the controversies that define the SDF – the connection to the YPG/PKK, an internationally recognized terrorist group, and the degree of control YPG/PKK might have over the SDF. The interview also covers the origins of SDF, the role of the PKK, the PKK’s command/leadership structure, and his thoughts on YPG foreign fighters.
