Manbij opens its doors to people fleeing Turkish attacks
The families, who were subjected to forced migration from Girê Spî and Serêkaniyê, found a great example of solidarity in Manbij.
The Turkish state and its mercenaries continued their invasion attacks on northern and eastern Syria forcing over 300,000 civilians to leave their houses.
The displaced people settled in schools that were converted into living spaces in the surrounding cities and in camps established by the Autonomous Administration.
The families, who were subjected to forced migration from Girê Spî and Serêkaniyê, found a great example of solidarity in Manbij. The people of Manbij opened their houses to 380 families who came to the city.
Selma Abdulqadir (45), mother of 3 children went from Serêkaniyê to Manbij and told ANHA that the people in Manbij gave them a house to stay. Abdulqadir recalled that the Turkish state and its mercenaries bombed their houses and they were forced to leave. "The so called Syrian National Army - said the woman - is made up of Turkish-linked mercenary groups. They plundered all the properties and killed people."
Eyşê Îbrahîm (38), mother of 5 children who fled from the village of Til Xidir in Girê Spî, said that they could never forget the Turkish state and its mercenaries bombing their houses. "The Turkish state - she said - bombed civilians while the world let them do so."
Stating that they fled west of Girê Spî in order to save their children Îbrahîm added: "We went from village to village. We moved around until I found a safe place for my children." Îbrahîm said that finally they were able to share a house with some relatives in Manbij and added that their only wish is to be able to return to their homes as soon as possible.
