Hundreds of families forced to emigrate from Serêkaniyê due to the attacks of the invading Turkish state and its mercenaries are now housed in the schools of Hesekê, Til Temir and the surrounding cities.
Sebah Mihemed from Serêkaniyê fled to Til Temir. "America first came to settle in the region and then agreed with Erdoğan and withdrew its forces. The US prepared the ground for these attacks. Turkey bombed civilians with planes and artillery. They attacked not only the Kurds but also the Assyrians, Armenians and Arabs. They slaughtered civilians. They used every kind of arms inlcuding chemical weapons."
Emphasizing that they left their homes because of the attacks, Sebah Mihemed said: "There is nothing for Erdoğan in our region. Erdoğan sent his mercenaries. They ransacked our houses, pillaged them. We had to take our children and leave our house. Now we are trying to live in schools. Winter is ahead, our children are still little, what can we do, we don't know."
Sebah Mihemed said that they would not accept any power other than SDF in their lands. "We do not accept any power except our Kurdish forces. We want to go back to our land. We will never leave our land to anyone. We will not leave Serêkaniyê until the last drop of our blood and we will resist. We will get rid of the mercenaries that Erdoğan has sent into the region. We're behind the SDF fighters. We raise our children with this idea."
Siphî Tirkî Xêlo said: "We have not left our land to anyone. We won't leave our land to Erdoğan nor any other state. We will defend our land with our blood. They made their betrayal plans on the blood of the Kurds. They want to destroy the Kurds. But we won't abandon our Kurdish identity nor Serêkaniyê to anyone. We are ready for anything to defend our lands."
Ehmed Elî Sefî said: "Erdoğan has been making threats to attack Serêkaniyê for 3 years. They attacked civilians without making any distinction, they attacked children and women. Nobody leaves their land to them. But they can fight with aircraft and sophisticated machines. The foreign states are creating confusion in the region. They plan to move the SDF out of the area and settle themselves in our land. ISIS and al Nusra front have been sent to the region, mercenary groups are plundering the homes of the people. We will never leave our land to anyone. We don't want anyone in our lands except the SDF."
