Dozens of women gathered in the city of al-Tabqa, al-Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor and Manbij inside the women’s house in Raqqa, north of the municipal stadium in the city center, to make the statement which read by a spokeswoman for the Syrian Women’s Council in Manbij Ibtisam Abdul Qader.
The statement said:
“We denounce the Turkish threats and the international silence towards our regions, the north-east of Syria, where daily threats of Turkish invasion of our regions are being seen. Erdogan seeks to restore the Ottoman caliphate to strike the revolution of July 19, which united all Syrian components on the principle of the peoples’ fraternity.
The statement pointed out that “the Turkish state is trying to thwart the victories and achievements realized thanks to SDF.”
The statement mentioned the Turkish practices in the occupied territories, saying “it started with Afrin and carried out all kinds of massacres in front of the world, as well as in Jrablos and Idlib, and wants to repeat this scenario today by invading northeastern Syria and to hit the security and stability of these areas and the spread of sectarian and tribal strife.
“On this basis, we, as the departments and institutions of the Young Women in the liberated areas of al-Raqqa, al-Tabqa, Deir ez-Zor and Manbij, launched a campaign against the Turkish threats.
