The Turkish occupation army, through its military aircraft, launched an attack on various areas of Syrian territory, leaving dozens of victims and wounded, most of them civilians, targeting infrastructure such as power plants in the Derik, Malikiya areas, and the hospital of Corona patients’ treatment in Kobani and bombing Al-makmin area in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor, which is 70 km from the Turkish border, in conjunction with holding the Astana conference.
We are as members of the Syrian Democratic Council, as the political and feminist community activists, condemn in the strongest terms the crimes committed by the Turkish occupation state against our people in Syria, amounting to war crimes against humanity, and we emphasize that Turkey’s justifications for launching this operation are invalid and unfounded, and this military operation is a complement to its aggressive approach in order to occupy more Syrian territory, work on demographic change, support terrorism, and create chaos and instability.
We know that Turkey is in a crisis at the moment, and that its internal and economic conditions make it work to redirect its crises by launching military operations because it could not get approval or get the green light in a ground invasion or a military invasion of some areas, especially in northeastern Syria, so it recently began to fabricate a flimsy play through the Istanbul terrorist explosion, which was condemned by the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Autonomous Administration of northeastern Syria, and every Kurdish party which Ankara wanted through the logic of pure pretense to justify its involvement in it. Ankara failed in this and its arguments did not convince any party, especially the guarantor powers of the ceasefire since November 2019, namely Russia and America.
Turkey, through its fascist attacks on the regions of northeastern Syria, assures everyone that its goal is not to end ISIS, but to give it a great opportunity to reorganize itself and at the same time redirect its crises and save itself from the difficult situation that the Turkish fascist authoritarian ruling regime has brought it to, and to stand by its destructive projects and tools instead of dialogue and fully resolving outstanding issues that lead to a secure and stable Middle East.
While we are as members of the Syrian Democratic Council and social, political and feminist events extend our deepest condolences to our martyrs and ask for the speedy recovery for the wounded, we blame the continuation of Turkish military air operations and their devastating consequences in the Autonomous Administration regions on both Russia, America and the international coalition, and we hold the Security Council, the United Nations and the Arab League the responsibility for taking a decisive and firm position in the face of Turkey in its disregard for international laws. We call on our Syrian people and all the Syrian national powers to defend this important part of Syria at this fateful stage and within this crucial juncture for everyone, and we also call on our people in the northeastern Syria to not give the opportunity for the powers of tyranny and neo-Ottoman fascism and to support the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Autonomous Administration in order to protect the gains made thanks to the sacrifices of our people and tens of thousands of martyrs and wounded including the people of the region.
