It was the first step to prepare the ground for the occupation ” she said.
Regarding the situation of Bab, Ezaz, Idlib and Jarablus, PYD Co-chair Ayşe Hiso claimed that the situation is no different in Afrin, Girê Spî and Serêkaniyê. ”All are the result of the Turkish state’s expansionist policies. It is trying to reach the former Ottoman borders. AKP-Erdogan personally manages these plans,” she said. Ayşe Hiso underlined that these are the policy of ”assimilation”. ”The Turkish state could solve the Syrian crisis but they just want the region to be Turkified. This is why they support the opposition,” she said.
”Demographic change has reached in a dangerous point in Afrin. We always stood against demographic change.” Ayşe Hiso said, and added “We were attacked from all sides because we represent democratic politics. These processes failed because we were not included in the Geneva and Astana process.”
