Aleppo, Syria – Residents of Manbij, a town in northern Aleppo countryside controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), staged a general strike to protest a decision to impose mandatory draft on young residents of the city, as reported by FRN yesterday. 

In response, the SDF have promised to punish protesters in Manbij who claim they protests were setup by the Turkish and Syrian governments.
