Young women in Manbij organised a torch march to mark 25 November International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Hundreds of people gathered in front of Firat Hospital and marched with torches and banners.
The march ended in the city square. Speaking here, Young Women's Assembly executive Tehani Lezîz stressed that women's unity will prevent all kinds of violence.
Stating that the Turkish state targets women during the occupation attacks, Tehani said: "The attacks are aimed at destroying the gains achieved by women. But our resistance is increasing day after day."
After the demonstration, a video was screened about the life of martyr Hevrîn Xelef, the Syria Future Party co-chair who was murdered in the first days of the Turkish invasion attack.
