Yesterday night, a drone plane belonging to the Turkish occupation army attacked the village of Hallinj, east of Kobani.The attack resulted to martyrdom of three women working in the field of defending and empowering women’s freedom; They were members of Kongra Star / Women’s Conference.
We, in the Syrian Democratic Council, offer condolences to the families of the martyrs, ask for urgent recovery for the wounded. We condemn this brutal act that reveals the mentality of crime and bullying in Erdoganian Turkey, we confirm that this crime is a link in chain of crimes carried out by the fascist regime in Ankara, from Kurdistan region of Iraq to north and east of Syria to Libya, Yemen and other places which Ankara is preparing to get involved in; launching from its dark political project called ” the New Ottoman”. Not to mention that Ardogan regime intends to end political life and let Turkey to get in through the tunnel of internal problems and crises completely. This crime is a violation of international law and the agreements that Ankara held with Washington and Moscow during Turkey’s occupation of Ras al-Ain and Tal Abyad at the end of October last year.
We once again call on our Syrian people, their national forces from al-Jazeera to Houran and Quneitra to stand together against Turkey to end its occupation of Syrian lands. We also turn to the United Nations and the Security Council, in particular the United States of America and the Russian Federation, the Arab League, human rights organizations and civil society to stop the machine of destruction practiced by the Turkish occupation forces and its mercenaries in the occupied Syrian regions, foremost of which is Afrin, which suffers from occupation and mercenary groups together, to bring these mercenaries and groups to justice, because the international silence regarding Turkey’s crimes in Syria and the general region motivates it to commit more crimes.
