Mazloum Abdi, the commanding general of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said there were documents confirming Turkey's use of some Isis terrorists during its recent aggression in northern Syria.

Abdi said in a tweet on Saturday November 16th that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan "blackmails the world with some prisoners of ISIS terrorists. We have documents confirming that Turkey is using many Isis terrorists in its invasion of northern Syria."

He added that an international trial must be held in northern Syria, where Isis committed terrible crimes, to "stop Turkey's blackmail to the world, thwart its plans, reveal the truth, and establish justice."
