SDF condemns the killing of civilians in Idlib and Hama
The SDF, said Gabriel Kino, "condemn in the strongest terms this brutal use of excessive force on both sides of the trenches in populated areas."
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Official Spokesperson, Kino Gabriel, condemned the Syrian regime, Russia and the Turkish state-affiliated mercenaries for their excessive use of force in the rural areas of Idlib and Hama.
Gabriel said that civilians are the "victims of regional and international interests."
In his statement Gabriel said: "Clashes have intensified recently in the northern countryside of Hama and Idlib on the back of the Syrian regime’s insistence on controlling the Aleppo – Damascus and Aleppo – Lattakia roads."
Gabriel added: "According to the documents and information leaked from the last Sochi conference, there was an agreement by the various parties participating in the conference on the terms of stopping the escalation and withdrawal of heavy weapons at a distance of (20) km away from the lines of contact and under the guarantee of Russia and Turkey."
Yet, what happened, said Gabriel "is coincided with Turkish threats against Northern Syria, the pace of fighting in that region has risen without any regard to the lives of thousands of civilians at risk and the scourge of war. And as a result of the outbreak of fighting and indiscriminate shelling from both sides of the conflict, many children, women and civilians fell victim to the failure of the guarantors who couldn’t fulfill their obligations to the region and its inhabitants."
The SDF, said Gabriel "condemn in the strongest terms this brutal use of excessive force on both sides of the trenches in populated areas. We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and similarly call on the international community to intervene to stop this genocide against civilian Syrians."
