Kongra Star calls for action for YPJ fighter captured wounded
“We address our call and our voices to the public and all international institutions in the hope that they will stand up against these war crimes and inhumanities,” said Kongra Star.
YPJ figher Çîçek Kobanê was wounded in the leg and fell into the hands of Turkish-backed mercenaries during a clash the village of Mishrefa in the area of Ayn Issa at 9pm on the evening of the 21st of October. Concerns grow over the life of the YPJ fighter.
Kongra Star released a statement on the capture and threat to the life of YPJ fighter Çiçek Kobanê. The statement reads as follows;
“It is known that the brutal occupation war of the Turkish state and its gangs is directed against all peoples of Northern and Eastern Syria. Despite the ceasefire, attacks continue. In connection with these violent attacks, war crimes have been committed against civilians and children in the name of Operation “Peace Spring”. The use by Turkey of phosphorus as a weapon of war is a crime against humanity. The Turkish state does not respect international law in its brutal attacks. The war crimes of the Turkish state and its allied jihadists continue to pose a serious threat to humanity as a whole.
YPJ fighter Çiçek Kobanê, who was wounded in the leg, is currently being held captive by the jihadist gangs allied with Turkey. This is a great threat to the life of the YPJ fighter Çiçek Kobanê and constitutes a violation of her human rights. The fact that human rights violations and war crimes are being committed in the region has also been exposed by the recent ill-treatment of the body of YPJ fighter Amara Renas.
The execution of the co-chairperson of the Syrian Future Party, Hevrîn Xelef, took place before the eyes of the world. These dirty acts in the name of Operation Peace Spring cause much concern and anxiety to all peoples of Northern and Eastern Syria. Therefore, the international community must stop the war crimes committed by the Erdogan regime and its allied gangs as soon as possible and take all necessary measures to stop them. YPJ fighter Çiçek Kobanê must be freed immediately from the brutal gangs.
As women of Kongra Star, we therefore call on the public and all international forces to take the necessary decisions to prevent these dirty and cruel acts. We condemn the aggressive attacks of the Turkish state and demand persecution by an international war criminal court. We will never cease to defend the lives of all the people of this region and to work for the improvement of living conditions.
For these reasons we as Kongra Star call for all voices to be raised for the life of Çiçek Kobanê. We address our call and our voices to the public and all international institutions in the hope that they will stand up against these war crimes and inhumanities. We must continue our resistance, defend our dignity and condemn the massacres and the occupation to the highest degree.”
