The Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), the political branch of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), convened with parties under its umbrella on July 30 to call on all democratic parties in Syria to join in its dialogue with the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
The meeting took place in the city of Derbasiya at the headquarters of the SDC “to discuss all related aspects of the visit between the Syrian Democratic Council and Damascus”. Turkey has staged military incursions into Syria to battle the YPG, a Kurdish militia that spearheads the SDF.
