Co-Chair of Child Protection Centre Inviting International Community to Respond
Fadye Şerif, the Co-Chair of Girê Spî Child Protection Centre said: “As a result of the occupying Turkish state dozens of crimes against children in Ayn Issa and Tell Abyad were communicated to our office. Many of these can be regarded as war crimes. Many children have died and some children were injured and became disabled.” Şerif called on the international community to react and to hold Turkey accountable, stating that they are documenting these crimes and submitting the documents to international institutions.
