The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious alliance of mainly Kurdish and Arab militias which was founded in October 2015 in the city of Al-Hasakah with the aim of fighting to create a secular, democratic and federal Syria, along the lines of Kurdistan's Rojava region in Northern Syria.[1]

In August 2017, the US-backed SDF began preparations for a military offensive against Deir Ezzor to prevent the Syrian Arab Army from re-establishing military control over the oil rich-territory.[2]
