The Commander in Chief of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Mazloum Abdi speaking at a forum for Afrin, said that the work to liberate Afrin has begun and revealed some of the Turkish goals in the region according to ANHA.
The Turkish occupation policies in Syria and against the people of north and east Syria were addressed by Abdi, who stated: “The goal of the Turkish occupation during its attacks on north and east Syria is not only to eliminate the Syrian Democratic Forces, which the occupation describes as terrorist groups, but also has many goals, which is the occupation of areas others from north and east Syria, bringing about demographic change in the region, distorting its history and exterminating its people.”
The SDF commander Mazloum Abdi called on Russian and American officials were Russia and the United States are asked to play their roles and express a firm stand on Turkish actions, SDF leader Mazloum Abdi said
“We stand,” Mazloum Abdi declared, “against the Turkish occupation” and said:
“We in the Syrian Democratic Forces will stand in the face of these policies and we will work as much as we can to repel the occupying plans. The Turkish state wants to reach the results of its plans that it has been seeking since the beginning of its invasion of Syria, but the resistance of our people in the face of the occupiers has led to unintended consequences for Turkey. We will also work from a diplomatic, political and military point of view to thwart Turkey’s goals.”
Afrin’s displaced residents in al-Shahba canton were praised by Mazloum Abdi for their resilience, saying: “The people of Afrin have been resisting for four years in the face of the occupation plans, failing them, and they must continue their resistance and increase its pace. Afrin canton had been occupied by international scheme, in our turn, we will liberate Afrin and the rest of the lands, the delay in the liberation of Afrin has its reasons, and we are working to overcome it. To liberate Afrin, we must work hard and with greater determination.”
