Mass demonstrations of local residents against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continue for the second day in a row in the area of ​​Syrian Manbij in the eastern countryside of Aleppo​.

The main reason of the protests is the dissatisfaction with the actions of the Kurdish authorities, including the forced conscription of men into the the SDF​ ranks.

The protests erupted on May 31 in the suburbs of Manbij. At the beginning, there were no violence. Dozens of locals blocked the M4 international road  with burning tires near the village of Karsan. Later, the protests spread to the the town.​

On June 1, the protests continued and grew up in their scale. Asayish, the security wing of the US-backed SDF, was reportedly deployed in the town. SDF reinforcements were seen arriving from Kobani towards Manbij.
