“TURKISH STATE IS COMMITTING A WAR CRIME”
The joint declaration said; “This step of the Turkish state is a violation of border, an abuse that should be taken to international courts. The United Nations Security Council or no state has ever fulfilled their duty in this regard. As Irani lawyers and human rights defenders, we ask the international community to take a step in order for this invasion to end. The Turkish state is committing a crime, for which it must be brought to account. International forces can do this.”
“A DUTY OF HONORABLE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD”
Calling for awareness for Afrin from all the circles that fight for world peace, lawyers and human rights defenders from Iran and Rojhilat stated the following; “We have a mission to remind every state, institution and organization of their human and moral responsibilities. Attacks of the Turkish state must stop immediately. International human rights organizations and honorable people of the world should raise their voice for Afrin.”
