“The Turkish occupation is committing an international war crime by attacking the civilian infrastructure in the region and backing ISIS with UAVs in an attempt to set free its terrorist detainees from the prisons and camps.”
The Press Center of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) released a statement providing the latest information about the increasingly ongoing attacks of the invading Turkish state.
The SDF statement published on Thursday includes the following:
“The Turkish occupation continues to commit war crimes against our people and our regions in an attempt to destroy the people’s livelihood and to deal a blow to their will to resist and their struggle for coexistence and peaceful life. The Turkish occupation is using all immoral means and standards to achieve its malicious goal in the region. However, those immoral means cannot break the will of our fighters and people. Nevertheless, our struggle is growing and increasing, and it will guarantee our success.
