Ferhad Şiblî and 3 other victims of Turkish drone attack to be sent to Rojava for burial
The bodies of Ferhad Şiblî and the three other victims of Friday's Turkish drone attack have been sent to Sulaymaniyah from where they will be sent to Rojava for burial.
The bodies of Ferhad Şiblî and the three other victims of Friday's Turkish drone attack in Kelar district are being transferred from Sulaymaniyah to Rojava. Şiblî was Deputy Chairman of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria. The other dead are said to be his comrades. Another person was injured in the attack on the car.
The coffins of the victims were taken from the forensic institute in Sulaymaniyah and were saluted by a large crowd. The people chanted slogans against Turkish occupation and treason.
According to the Northeast Syrian Autonomous Administration, Ferhad Şiblî was in Sulaymaniyah for medical treatment and for talks. The Autonomous Administration called on the governments of the Kurdistan Federal Region and Iraq to assume their responsibilities and take a clear stance against those Turkish terrorist attacks.
The Iraqi airspace is controlled by the US, which means that the drone attacks ordered by the Turkish government in South Kurdistan are actually carried out with the consent of the US.
Last Wednesday, a 12-year-old Yazidi boy was killed by a Turkish drone in Shengal. The Turkish secret service MIT is also carrying out targeted attacks against people who are close to the Kurdish liberation movement. Most recently, Mehmet Zeki Çelebi was shot by a hit squad on 17 May in front of his restaurant in Sulaymaniyah.
