The Syrian Democratic Council

Statement for Public Opinion

Turkey targeted a war-wounded center in the city of Qamishli, northeastern Syria, on February 11, 2024, by its warplanes and drones. That targeting resulted in the martyrdom of two female fighters from the Women’s Protection Units and injuring others who played a crucial role in defeating the most notorious terrorist group (ISIS) that terrorized the world by its atrocities. Turkey carried out that assault as a continuation of its aggressive approach towards the Syrian people and their effective forces on the ground, and in a clear violation of international humanitarian laws.

Turkey’s targeting of the war-wounded center is one of the most significant manifestations of Turkish policy in Syria and a clear message of Turkish support, which it has provided and continues to provide to the ISIS in its war against the region’s components. It confirms that Turkey targeted the wounded who lost parts of their bodies in their fight against terrorism which was a stigma prepared in Turkey and executed by its proxies in Syria.

We as members of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) mourn the martyrs and offer our condolences to their families. We strongly condemn the brutal Turkish aggression and blatant criminality against an institution. That institution is considered a center symbolizes the Syrian conscience in general, and appreciates efforts and sacrifices of the war-wounded in eliminating terrorism and protecting the values of peace and humanity as well as fighting on behalf of the entire world.

We also call on the Global Coalition to combat the ISIS, to take a strong stance towards its partners in the fight against terrorism and to take deterrent measures against Turkey and its ongoing crimes in northeastern regions of Syria.

We appeal to the international community, the United Nations, the European Union, and the Arab League to fulfill their responsibilities to deter Turkey, put an end to its aggression on Syrian territory and to take a stance against the Turkish occupation’s violation of the international laws and norms.

At the same time, we expect all Syrian democratic national powers to express their rejection of the Turkish occupation and its ongoing aggression, and to respond to the calls for the national dialogue launched by the SDC to resolve the Syrian crisis, which will be the path to liberation from Turkish occupation and all invaders and occupiers.
