Women in Raqqa protest the Turkish occupation of their lands
People vowed that they will continue to resist until they liberate the Syrian lands from the Turkish army and mercenaries.
The crimes committed by the invading Turkish state against the peoples of North and East Syria were protested in Raqqa by the march promoted by the Young Women's Union.
Members of institutions and hundreds of people from Raqqa attended the march. The crowd gathered at the Fire Brigade Square in the south of the city and walked to Old Bridge Street.
Making a statement on behalf of the Young Women's Union of Raqqa, Fatima El Helef said: “The Turkish state has taken advantage of the 9-year-long war in Syria and has been trying to fulfil its aims and interests in the region. The Turkish state occupied the Syrian lands. It used the mercenaries in Syria during its occupation attacks and continues to support them. The Damascus government is not active in the promotion of talks on the solution of the Syrian crisis."
Stating that they will continue to resist until they liberate the Syrian lands from the Turkish army and mercenaries, El Helef called on all peoples, young women and men to organize, defend their people and protect their lands.
