Thousands from Qamishlo, Derîk and Hesekê cities of Rojava rushed to Qereçox region in the countryside of Derîk city that was bombarded by the invading Turkish army last night. People are chanting “Murderer Erdoğan” and carrying YPG, YPJ and TEV-DEM flags and Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan's posters as they protest the Turkish attack.
Inspection continues at the Qereçox Hill where the targeted YPG General Command Headquarters and Voice of Rojava radio station are located, and at civilian settlements that were also targeted by Turkish airstrikes.
The people in the area who include the Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) Co-president İlham Ehmed and Northern Syria Democratic Federation Executive Council Co-president Foza Yûsif condemned the Turkish state’s attacks and stated that they have the strength to protect their land and will continue to resist till the very end.
Yûsif and Ehmed called upon the International Coalition and the U.S. to not leave their reaction limited with a statement.
Yûsif and Ehmed stated that this attack would give a breathing space to the ISIS that is currently besieged in Raqqa, and that they will halt and reconsider the Operation Wrath of Euphrates if the necessary reaction is not manifested.
Yûsif and Ehmed demanded that the USA prevent such aerial attacks, stressing that if necessary they would halt the Raqqa Operation and resist the Turkish army in order to protect their land.
