In the northern Syrian town of Abu Qalqal in the southeast of Manbij, hundreds of people have demonstrated against the Turkish invasion of northern and eastern Syria.
In the northern Syrian town of Abu Qalqal in the southeast of Manbij, hundreds of people demonstrated on Sunday against the invasion of northern and eastern Syria by NATO partner Turkey and its Islamist proxy army. Representatives of the Manbij Civil Council and members of the Military Council also took part in the protest.
The demonstration began in the late afternoon in the centre of Abu Qalqal and was held under the motto "Victory belongs to those resisting". Behind front banners with the words "No to Turkish occupation" and " Manbij tribes reject the invasion" the crowd marched loudly through the town.
The march was followed by a rally which began with a minute's silence for the fallen. In speeches by representatives of the Future Party of Syria and the Civil Council of Manbij, the war of invasion against the self-governing areas in northern Syria was strongly condemned. The international community and international organizations were also criticized for their inaction to stop the invasion. Finally, it was announced that the resistance against the occupation would continue.
