YPG/PKK terrorists forcibly recruited one more teenager in Syria's northeastern province of Raqqa, local sources said on Monday.

Hamed al-Zelan, 17, was forcibly recruited by the terror group from the Abu Hamam town, said the sources who wished to remain anonymous.

The YPG/PKK takes children to training camps in al-Hasakah.

The terror group’s use of "child soldiers" has repeatedly been documented in UN reports.

A UN report, "Children and armed conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic," released May 18, showed that the YPG/PKK used more than 400 children between July 2018 and June 2020.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is PKK's Syrian offshoot./aa
