Newly formed Tayy Arab Tribe Council prioritizes civil peace in North and East Syria

NORTH AND EAST SYRIA — Following the recent formation of the Tayy Arab Tribe Council, led by Sheikh Hassan Farhan al-Abdul Rahman, the Council emphasized their commitment to preserving civil peace in North and East Syria.

Sheikh Hassan explained that their participation in the Democratic Autonomous Administration of the Region of North and East Syria (DAARNES) stems from a desire to contribute to the region’s development, aiming to modernize tribal customs and promote a more civilized approach.

The establishment of the Council was the result of collaborative efforts between tribal leaders and DAARNES officials, achieved after three months of consultations among tribe members.

Sheikh Hassan emphasized the Council’s stance against any threats to the region’s security and stability, particularly from external actors like Turkey, the Syrian regime, and opposition groups, who have sought to sow discord between Arab and Kurdish communities.

Comprising representatives from various clans, including a member from the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) component, the Council serves as a vital link between the tribes and DAARNES.

The Tayy tribe, one of Syria’s largest tribes, spans the nation, with a significant presence in Zalin (Qamishli) and its southern countryside extending to the Iraqi border, encompassing numerous clans.
