The PKK Syrian affiliate Democratic People's Party's (PYD) armed People's Protection Units (YPG) has suffered heavy daily losses in the U.S.-backed Manbij operation, which, according to the U.S., is being carried out by Arab-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). YPG militants' coffins arrive in Kurdish towns every day, and funerals for the slain militants include PKK flags and banners of imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan. A funeral ceremony was held in Kobani on Tuesday for four YPG militants who were killed in the Manbij operation. A large portrait of Öcalan was seen next to the coffins of the slain YPG militants. Two of them were reportedly killed by DAESH militants in the Manbij operation on June 12."Even though they try to hide it, it is the YPG that does the fighting in the Manbij operation," Kurtuluş Tayiz, a columnist for the Akşam daily who specializes in Kurdish affairs and the PKK, told Daily Sabah. "The [U.S.] administration is not sincere in its statements about the operation," he added.
