Alaattin Ahmed, the sheikh of the Esyad El Heyayin tribe, commented on efforts to solve the crisis in North and East Syria, the Turkish state’s attacks, and the attitude of Arab countries towards the attacks.
‘Citizens of Syria should take the Autonomous Administration as an example’
“Kurdish, Arab and Assyrian citizens have struggled against the mercenaries and built a society in solidarity”, said Ahmed. “Syrians should take the experience of North and East Syria as an example, if they aim to end the crisis in the country and ensure a political solution”.
Ahmed noted that the people of North and East Syria attained significant achievements as well as liberating a large proportion of Syria’s lands through the unity they formed. “People of the region should be given military and political support. The [Syrian] regime and each Syrian citizen should evaluate all the steps taken by the Autonomous Administration, observe that to support this administration is a national mission, and they should also engage in dialogue with the Autonomous Administration”, he added.
‘Arab League should take action’
Ahmed also drew attention to the multipartite state of the Arab countries. “There is no unity among Arab countries. Multiple Arab countries support Turkey, which has occupied several regions in Syria. On the other hand, the Arab League remains silent in the face of this. This silence jeopardizes the future of the region. The Arab League should take action to bring an end to Turkey’s occupation and its interference in the internal affairs of Arab countries.”
‘Egypt’s attitude is important’
Sheikh Ahmed also commented on the role of Egypt in the region. “Egypt’s attitude towards the crisis of Syria and the attacks of the Turkish army is stable. We thank Egypt on the grounds that it has called for standing against Turkey’s attacks and giving more support to the people of Syria”.
