Syrian Democratic Council calls for closure of airspace in northern Syria
The Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) has called for closure of airspace in north-eastern Syria following the killing of three civilians in a Turkish drone attack in Qamishlo on Tuesday.
The Syrian Democratic Council (MSD) in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria released a statement concerning the massacre carried out by the occupying Turkish army that killed three members of the Gulo Family from Rojava yesterday.
“A Turkish drone bombed a vehicle with three members of the Gulo family. The car was bombed in front of their house in a populated neighbourhood of Qamishlo city. 82-year-old patriot Yûsif Gulo and his grandchildren Mihemed and Mezlûm Gulo were martyred as a result of the drone attack,” the statement said.
CALL FOR ALL NATIONAL FORCES TO CLARIFY THEIR STANCE'
MSD continued, “We express our condolences to the family of all the three martyrs. We condemn this terrorist attack against civilians. We also condemn the violation of Syrian territory and the targeting of Kurdish commanders and soldiers who support the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. We urge all national forces to clarify their stance against Turkish state’s crimes and threats to expand its occupation in Syria.
APPEAL TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY
MSD called on the international community to close the airspace in north-eastern Syria, saying, “The international community should also clarify its stance against war crimes and breach of agreements. The recent developments show that international laws are not respected. We urge the international community to close airspace to fighter jets in order to maintain stability in the region and to avoid the presence of terrorist groups such as ISIS which jeopardize north-eastern Syria.”
