Militants riot over wage arrears

In Tell-Abyad, in the zone of Operation Peace Spring, militants of the Sultan Murad division refused to obey the orders of the command, demanding that the debt be paid off. A group of 50 people went to the checkpoint of the Turkish Armed Forces strongpoint, threatening to lay down their arms.

Activists are spreading information about the protests among other gangs with an appeal to sabotage the orders of the Turkish command until the debt is paid off.

Such cases have become more frequent after the sharp drop in the Turkish lira exchange rate and the beginning of the economic decline in Turkey. After that, the theft of funds intended for cash payments to the militants began.

The cases of the theft of weapons and military equipment have also become more frequent. Probably, sabotage is also associated with disagreements over the start of a possible operation of the Turkish Armed Forces against Kurdish armed formations.
