Abdi said: “At a time when all Syrians want stability, the invading Turkish state is violating all agreements. The bombing of civilians in Kobanê is a provocation attempt. Its aim is to escalate the war in the region. We offer our condolences to the families of the martyrs and call on the guarantor parties to fulfil their responsibilities.”
