A spokesman for Kurdish forces in Syria said Thursday they would respect a ceasefire due to start this weekend, while retaining the right to “retaliate” if attacked.

 

“We, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), give great importance to the process of cessation of hostilities announced by the United States and Russia and we will respect it, while retaining the right to retaliate … if we are attacked,” YPG spokesman Redur Xelil said on his Facebook page.
