Members of Self-Defence Forces call for participation in the fight against attacks
Male and female fighters of the North and East Syrian Self-Defence Forces said that self-defence remains vital to protect the peoples of the region from the continued attacks of the occupying Turkish army and its mercenaries.
The peoples of North-East Syria have been facing attacks by the Turkish army and its mercenaries since the beginning of the July 19 Revolution, known also as the Rojava Revolution. The Turkish army and its mercenaries have recently escalated their attacks in an attempt to invade other parts of Syria.
Male and female members of the North and East Syrian Self-Defence Forces emphasized the importance of self-defence at a time when the states intervening in Syria have increased their attacks and threats against the region for their own interests. The fighters called on the peoples of the region to fight together to confront the attacks of the Turkish army and to liberate the occupied areas.
Fighter Çavreş Qamişlo said that self-defence is of vital importance especially for the peoples of North and East Syria; “There is a need to reinforce self-defence at a time of threats and attacks by the invading Turkish state and its mercenaries against our territory. All the peoples in the region have a responsibility to defend North and East Syria because the aim of the Turkish state is to shatter the identity of peoples who live together based on a democratic project.”
A female fighter, Dilbîn Til Temir from Hesekê Self-Defence Forces pointed out that the aim of the invading Turkish state is to divide the Syrian lands. “I became a member of HPC-Jin to frustrate the attacks against our lands along with the SDF, YPJ and YPG. Everyone from North and East Syria should join the military forces. They should give support to the military forces fighting against the invading Turkish state and its mercenaries that want to subject the peoples of the region to genocide.
HPC-Jin member Bêrivan Ehmed called on young men and women in the region to join the military forces. “The time for freedom has come. Young people from North and East Syria should join the military forces to liberate their lands and to repel the brutal attacks of the invading Turkish state.”
Another fighter, Gabar Andok, also highlighted the importance of participation in the struggle; “Together with the SDF, the Self-Defence Forces have created a defence unit for the people of North and East Syria against foreign interventions which target our lands. The people of the region should be prepared for any attack on their land.”
