Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) said Sunday that they were ready to comply with UN Security Council resolution on the ceasefire in Syria, but retain the right to respond to aggression.

“We… declare our welcome and readiness to comply with the UN Security Council resolution to stop hostilities within all enemies, except Daesh terrorists, while reserving the right to retaliate which is a legitimate self-defense right in case of any aggression by the Turkish army and allied factions in Afrin,” YPG’s statement read.

On Saturday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 2401 that urges all parties to the conflict to immediately stop all clashes and adhere to a long-term humanitarian pause on the entire territory of Syria in order to ensure the safe and unhindered humanitarian aid supplies as well as medical evacuation of the injured people.
