Migrants in Hawl and Erisa camps condemn threats of invasion
Migrants in the Hawl and Erisa camps in Heseke said, “We came to Northern and Eastern Syria for a safe life. Now the invading Turkish state is threatening the safe zones. We are calling on Arab clans to fulfill their responsibilities against threats.”
Thousands of migrants have sought refuge in the Northern and Eastern Syrian territory due to ISIS gangs and Turkish invasions. The Hawl and Erisa camps are among places civilians fleeing war have made their home. The migrants in the camps are protesting the Turkish state’s threats to invade the region.
Migrants in the Hawl and Erisa camps issued a statement condemning the invasion threats. The statement in the Hawl camp was read by camp assembly member Ebdilmelik El Ibedi and the one in Erisa was read by camp assembly member Xalid Sileman El Resid.
The statements said the invading Turkish state is targeting stability in the Northern and Eastern Syrian lands which have received thousands of migrants with open arms, and to revive the ISIS gangs nearing their demise.
The statements also said the SDF and Autonomous Administration have been tending to the migrants’ needs and added that civilians fleeing war and terrorism sought refuge in Northern and Eastern Syria but are now facing the threat of a Turkish state attack against the region.
The statements condemned the Turkish state’s threats of invasion and called on Arab clans to fulfill their responsibilities and to defend the lands liberated with blood of martyrs against all attacks.
