French leader Emmanuel Macron met spokesman for Kurdish-led Syria SDF forces

PARIS (REUTERS) – French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday (Oct 8) met Jihane Ahmed, the spokesman for the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), to express France’s solidarity with them in their fight against Islamic State in the region, said Macron’s office.
