The statement also said that the political events taking place in the region, trade-offs and international interests are not serving the Syrian people, but they are in the interest of the conspiring countries on our country, first and foremost the Turkish state and its President Erdogan who has am ambition to return the glories of the Ottoman Empire
The statement also condemned the international silence, the international community, international organizations claiming humanitarianism and human rights, and their suspicious silence on daily violations committed by the Turkish state in Afrin.
The statement pointed out that the aim of the Turkish state to occupy the Syrian territories is to strike the Syrian social fabric and the state of co-existence among the entities of the Syrian people in the north and east of Syria , because it considers it a threat to its interests and expansion ambitions in the region and to hit the gains made by Syria democratic forces in its war on terror and ISIS , and to hit the stability in the eastern Euphrates areas and self-management areas.

“We, as women and all our entities , condemn these declarations and these heinous crimes on our soil and call on the international community and the United Nations to get out of this shameful silence. We are not lovers of destruction and wars, our motto is the brotherhood of peoples and living in freedom and dignity.”
