Deir ez-Zor: Women protest against Turkish occupation threats
In Deir ez-Zor, women have taken to the streets to protest the Turkish occupation threats. "As women, we have formed a unity and will resist," said Hiyam Ahmed.
As part of the campaign launched against Turkish occupation threats under the motto “We united and triumphed. We will resist to defend and no to Turkish occupation”, women have staged a march in Kesra town of Deir ez-Zor today.
During the march, women chanted slogans against the neo-Ottoman plans of the rulers in Turkey.
Speeches at the closing rally were held on behalf of the Future Party of Syria, Internal Security Forces and the Civil Council of Deir ez-Zor.
Following speeches, Hiyam Ehmed read a press statement in the name of Deir ez-Zor Women’s Administration and said; “We, the women of Deir ez-Zor, will never accept slavery and an dishonorable life. We, all the women, are united and will resist.”
The threats of Turkey
Turkey has been threatening to occupy the self-governing territories of northern and eastern Syria for some time with an offensive in the east of the Euphrates. At the same time with the first shipment of parts of the Russian S-400 missile system to Turkey, the Turkish army deployed troops on the border with Rojava.
The Turkish regime chief, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said three days ago that he was "determined to smash the terror corridor east of the Euphrates. We will do everything necessary. We do not need permission for that.”
