Who is FSA commander that slammed France’s role in eastern Syria?


Joshua Landis writes: “Syrian Rebel Commander – Saif Abu Bakir – Head of the Hamza Division, which was a leading CIA vetted and armed rebel militia criticizes France for defending the YPG/PKK. “We will save our region from both the PKK & Daesh,” said Abu Bakir.”

Nicholas Heras notes “This is the same guy who facilitated Daesh’s control over Al-Bab in the first place. And now under TSK protection runs Al-Bab like little fiefdom and intimidates protestors (backed up by TSK) just like HTS does in Idlib. Awesome. Certainly a better alternative to SDF, huh?”
