TEHRAN (FNA)- People in regions that are under the control of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzor poured into the streets on Sunday and called for expulsion of SDF militants from their region.

Anti-SDF movements by pro-government residents have recently been reported in the regions that are under the US-backed militants in Eastern Deir Ezzor.

A commander of the pro-government Jeish al-Ashayer (Tribal Army) has moved into the SDF regions, including al-Sha'aytat, to plan a coup or rebellion by the residents against SDF's rule, locals said.

In the meantime, local sources in Eastern Deir Ezzor reported that the Syrian Army flags have been hoisted by unknown people in the towns of al-Shahil and al-Kashakiyeh that are under SDF control.
