The so called Sinjar Agreement signed between the Iraqi Central government and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) continues to increase tension in the region.
Demonstrations have taken place in many cities of North and East Syria in protest against the Sinjar agreement.
Qamishli People’s Council condemned the threats against Sinjar.
“The Sinjar Agreement does not respect the will of the Yazidi people, it is a threat against Sinjar. We, as the people of Rojava will continue to defend the Yazidi’s and Sinjar,” said Hozan Mejdo, Co-Chair of the council.
‘Security of the people in Sinjar is under threat’
Al-Qahtaniyah (Tirbespiyê) Peoples’ Council also organised a demonstration in the city centre.
District Council Co-chair Mihemed Hac Ferhan pointed out that the Sinjar agreement “disregards the will of the Yazidi people.”
“We will defend the rights of the people of Sinjar against the occupation threat of their lands,” Ferhan said.
A press release was issued in Amuda, a district currently under the civil control of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria.
Amuda Peoples’ Council Co-Chair Mihemed Ehmed Ezîz said, “’Security of the people in Sinjar is under threat. Forcing the local Yazidi security forces out of Sinjar means to leave Sinjar defenceless.”
People of Tell Hamis, a town in northeastern Hasakah also took to the streets to raise solidarity with the Yazidi people in Sinjar.
Tell Hamis district council co-chair Xalid El Nayf said, “For the democracy, for the freedom of people in our region and in Sinjar, we will defend Sinjar against these attacks.”
