SDF Afrin Command issued a written statement on the 15th day of the resistance against the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs.
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Afrin Command has issued a written statement on clashes with the invading Turkish army and their allied gangs. SDF Afrin Command announced that the Resistance of the Age continues with high morale and resolve on its 15th day and that it will continue until the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs are completely cleared off the lands of Afrin.
The SDF statement is as follows:
“The resistance of our forces against the invading Turkish army and their allied Al Qaeda gangs has entered its 15th day. The whole world stands witness to the resistance and heroism displayed by our fighters in Afrin, which the invading Turkish army and their allied gangs attempt to invade with high technology. This success of ours increases the morale of our fighters in the resistance positions further. However heavy the price may be, we will defend our people and our lands.
Since the first day, we have stated that our resistance against the invading Turkish army is a legitimate resistance and we will continue until we clear all our lands off these invading forces. The earth in our country is now watered by the blood of our martyrs. Our people in the region are shoulder to shoulder with the fighters and this creates a great resistance. Even though the invading army attacks with jets and tanks, the resistance continues with all the heroism. The invading army’s attacks have resulted in the martyrdom of hundreds of civilians and dozens of our fighters.
The invading Turkish army uses all the technology they have access to, including banned weapons. They are shocked due to the resistance displayed in Afrin despite all this technical advantage. They can’t bring the morale of our fighters or our people down. On the contrary, our fighters deliver heavy blows. Hundreds of terrorists have been killed and wounded. Many military vehicles were targeted and destroyed by our fighters.
We announce to the public that we will clear these gangs from all points they entered on the border areas and that we will increase our resistance against jets and tanks.
Clashes between our forces and the invading Turkish army and their allied gangs continue intensely in the areas listed below. We will continue with our insistence and resolve to liberate these areas.”
The SDF Afrin Command gave the following list for the areas of intense clashes between the SDF fighters and the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs: “Shingelê, Bêkê, Elîkera, Zehrê, Qurnê, Baliya, Ebûdanê, Kurdo and Qestelê villages in the Bilbilê district, Memala, Umera, Elbîskê and Edema villages in the Rajo district and Alkana and Xelîl villages in the Shiye district.
