Thousands in Shehba protest isolation of Abdullah Öcalan

Thousands in Shehba attended the march against the isolation of Kurdish people’s leader Abdullah Öcalan.

The isolation imposed on Kurdish people's leader Abdullah Öcalan was condemned with a mass march in Shehba region of northern Syria. Thousands gathered in front of the Avrîn Hospital in the district of Fafîn and marched with photos of Öcalan and banners in Arabic and Kurdish, denouncing the isolation.

The march turned into a rally in front of Berxwedan Camp. Speaking at the rally, Kongra Star member Wehîda Xelîl said that the Turkish state aims at breaking the will of the Kurdish people with the invasion attacks and the isolation imposed on Kurdish people's leader Öcalan.

Xelîl emphasized that the Kurdish people embraced Öcalan's ideas and that no attack could break their resistance.

Shehba Özgür Women's Council member Efwiya Bekir condemned the isolation practices and called on the international community to fulfil their responsibilities against the violations carried out by the Turkish state.
