‘Attack on Ferhad Şiblî is aimed at AANES and all components in North-East Syria’
AANES South Kurdistan Representative Evîn Siwêd held the Iraqi and Kurdistan regional governments responsible for the martyrdom of Ferhad Şiblî who was killed in a targeted drone attack by the Turkish army in Kelar yesterday.
Four people were killed and another person injured in a drone attack on a car near the village of Berlut in the north of the Kelar town near Sulaymaniyah city of South Kurdistan (North Iraq) on Friday morning. It was not initially known who the victims were, and which state the drone belonged to. While local authorities announced that the attack was carried out by Turkish UCAVs, the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) announced today that one of the four victims was Ferhad Şiblî, the deputy chairman of the AANES Executive Council. No information is yet available on the identities of the other dead and injured.
AANES South Kurdistan Representative Evîn Siwêd spoke to ANHA about the attack and stated that Şiblî was in South Kurdistan for some medical tests. “The attack on Ferhad Şiblî is aimed at the Autonomous Administration and all components in North-East Syria.”
Holding the Iraqi and Kurdistan regional governments responsible for the martyrdom of Ferhad Şiblî, Evîn Siwêd continued, “Both governments should manifest an attitude against this attack which is a violation of the Iraqi and Kurdistan territory, as well as a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.”
