A delegation of the Syrian Interim Government, an alternative government in Syria by opposition groups, visited the city of Tal Abyad on Monday.

The town in northern Syria was liberated from terrorists on Oct. 13, 2019 during Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring.

The Defense Ministry delegation led by Interim Defense Minister Salim Idris included other senior officers of the Syrian National Army, a coalition of Syrian opposition groups.

The group visited the Council of Tribes and Clans, and met the region’s senior figures. The council is a unified body formed for political negotiations concerning the future of the Middle East country.

The delegation also met local security forces, and discussed measures against the YPG/PKK terrorist group, which regularly attacks the city.

Thousands have been killed while millions displaced in the civil war that began in 2011 in Syria.
