Events continue in NE Syria in protest against Turkey’s ongoing military campaign in Iraq. As a tent vigil was launched in northeast city of Qamishli on May 1, the Syrian RevolutionaryYouth Movement organised a panel on Monday regarding the latest developments in northern Iraq, where fierce clashes between the Turkish armed forces and Kurdish fighters in the Metina, Zap and Avaşin regions have continued since April 23.
Foza Yûsif, member of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) Co-Presidency, spoke at the panel and shared her views on Turkey’s campaign in northern Iraq.
“The aim of these attacks is to massacre the peoples of the region,” Yusif said regarding Turkey’s operations in Iraq.
Pointing out to the Middle East policy of the Turkish government led by the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Yusif said, “The Turkish state wages war not just with North East Syria, but throughout the Middle East they conduct a total war policy. They are at war with the whole of the Middle East. Since they are afraid from the democratic nation perspective, they attack NE Syria even more.”
Yusif shared her criticism of Turkey’s aggressive policies in the region and urged the communities living in the region to act against the imposition of Turkey’s total war policies.
