REPORT: Military leader of Syrian Kurds tells US ‘you are leaving us to be slaughtered’

(CNN) — The commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces told a senior US diplomat, “You are leaving us to be slaughtered,” demanding to know whether the US is going to do anything to protect Syrian Kurds as Turkey continues its military operation targeting America’s Kurdish allies in Syria.
“You have given up on us. You are leaving us to be slaughtered,” Gen. Mazloum Kobani Abdi told the Deputy Special Envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, William Roebuck, in a meeting Thursday, according to an internal US government readout that has been obtained exclusively by CNN.
The article goes on to state the following:
“You are not willing to protect the people, but you do not want another force to come and protect us. You have sold us. This is immoral,” Mazloum added.
Mazloum reportedly asked that the U.S. either help defend them against the Turkish attack, or allow them to make a deal with either the Assad regime or Russia.
“I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people, of stopping these bombs falling on us or not. I need to know, because if you’re not, I need to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this region,” Mazloum said.
Some U.S. military leaders are reportedly furious over being asked with withdraw. One senior official told CNN, “We are just watching the second largest Army in NATO attack one of our best counter-terrorism partners.”
