A footage was recently circulated on social media showing a man being tortured and humiliated in Deir Ezzor.
We in the SDF Command have followed this video to verify its authenticity and initiated an immediate investigation, as a result; those who were involved in this incident were arrested and investigated. We in the Syrian Democratic Forces confirm to our people and public opinion that the members who do not abide by the standards of freedom and morality on which our forces were established, are not fit to work within the ranks of the SDF, and they will be held accountable.
The SDF has been struggling and fighting against the terrorist organization of ISIS and the occupiers to ensure a dignified life for the people and preserve the rights of freedom. Therefore, we will not hesitate to arrest and prosecute those involved in such immoral personal behaviors, which are far from all cultural and social standards, and we will continue our struggle for freedom and democracy.
