DAMASCUS, July 8 (Xinhua) -- The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have recruited 4,000 young men for compulsory military service in areas in northern Syria since the beginning of July, a war monitor reported Wednesday.

The young men were taken to the military service in the ranks of the SDF from SDF-controlled areas in Hasakah, Aleppo, Raqqa and Deir al-Zour, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

This comes as protests have erupted in several areas in northern Syria against the practices of the SDF.

The Kurdish-led SDF managed to control several areas in northern and northeastern Syria with the help of the US forces.
