The public opinion has followed the case of the disappearance of Colonel Talal Sallou, spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces, and became the address of many media outlets. In order to clarify the circumstances of the incident, we in the Syrian Democratic Forces would like to emphasize that Colonel Talal Sallou joined our forces with his faction and his faction’s desire to enter under the banner of Syrian Democratic Forces
He officially received the mission of the official spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces and was at his head until the moment he lost contact with him.
Colonel Talal Sallou has been respected and appreciated by our forces, leadership and base. He has performed the tasks entrusted to him professionally. Accordingly, he has been subjected to a lot of pressure and extortion by the Turkish state and at some stages has threatened his children in Turkey.
Since the moment of losing contact with him, our forces have been investigating the circumstances of this disappearance, although he submitted his resignation earlier, due to some of the pressures and problems that were in his work, and therefore we believe that his disappearance is the result of a special operation of Turkish intelligence and cooperation and complicity with Some of his family members.
We in the Syrian Democratic Forces assure the public that we are continuing our struggle against terrorism, contributing to the building of a democratic Syria, a free federal decentralization worthy of all the people of Syria, and that the brotherhood of the peoples will remain a balance for us.
We express our military identity, which we have always achieved victories from the inspiration of these brothers, and will not be affected by our forces, this event, and we will public opinion later on the results of investigations.
General Command of the Syrian Democratic Forces
