Syriac Military Council Spokesperson: We will liberate Turkish and mercenary-occupied areas
Syriac Military Council Spokesperson, Matay Hena, said that the Turkish state and its mercenaries are trying to frustrate the fight against terrorism carried out by the SDF.
The Turkish army and its mercenaries have been targeting Til Temir, in the canton of Hesekê for a month and a half. With these attacks, the Turkish occupation is also violating the ceasefire mediated by international forces.
The Turkish army targets villages as well as public and service buildings. Speaking on the subject, Syriac Military Council Spokesperson, Matay Hena, underlined the latest attacks carried out by the invading Turkish state and noted that Til Temir Military Forces and Til Temir Military Council Forces responded to these attacks in accordance with the principle of self-defense.
Hena said that the Turkish state has violated international agreements and conventions and added: "As a matter of fact, the agreements made after the Turkish state occupied Northern and Eastern Syria regions were signed to ensure a ceasefire in the region."
Hena continued: "Turkey is waging a special war against the people of Northern and Eastern Syria by laying the groundwork for reviving terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State."
The Syriac Military Council Spokesperson also said that the Turkish army carried out war crimes by targeting educational institutions, public and service buildings in villages close to the war fronts. He added that as a result of the attacks, citizens were left without electricity and underlined that more than 1.5 million people living in Hesekê city and villages have been left without water.
"They are on the battle lines, when there is war, they protect civilians within the framework of self-defense and respond to attacks so that citizens can return home safely," he said.
"Til Temir Military Council and Assyrian Council Military Forces are on the front line to protect civilians within the framework of self-defense and respond to attacks so that citizens can return to their homes safely," Hena said adding that they will protect their region and people and promised the liberation of the occupied areas.
