US official: We are confident of SDF's ability to protect ISIS detention facilities

A senior administration official said that the United States trusts the SDF's ability to secure and protect all ISIS detention facilities.

Washington has no intention of ending its alliance with the SDF, a senior administration official told a conference call ahead of a meeting between US President Donald Trump and his Turkish counterpart Erdogan on Wednesday, a move the IAEA considered as standing up to Ankara's demands to end the Washington-SDF alliance.

In another context, the US official said regarding the ability of "SDF" to protect the prisons that harbor ISIS prisoners: "We are very confident of the ability of the SDF to secure all detention facilities in which they hold ISIS mercenaries."
