The Rojava Film Commune issued a statement about the death of young Silava Remedan. The girl, who was born in 2005, was an actress with the Commune and had starred in the movie Stories of Destroyed Cities, by Shero Hindi.
On August 18, a Turkish drone bombed an UN-sponsored girls' education centre in the village of Şemokê on the Hesekê-Til Temir Road. The attack claimed the lives of 4 girls, while 11 others were injured as a result of the attack.
The statement reads as follows:
“We are sad and heartbroken to announce our youngest Rojava Film Commune actress has succumbed to her injuries she sustained following a Turkish drone attack.
Silava Remedan was playing volleyball with her friends in Heseke when a Turkish drone targeted Shamouka learning center for girls on August 18. Four of her friends were killed at the scene and Silava was hospitalized for a few days before she died due to her heavy injuries.
Silava was our youngest actress at the Film Commune. She participated in our film Stories of Destroyed Cities in 2016 when she was just eight years old.
Our hearts and thoughts are with her family and the families of the martyrs that were taken from us prematurely at the hands of the Turkish regime, which continues its aggression and has stripped the people of Rojava of their rights to live freely and safely in their homeland.”
