Statement regarding the first anniversary of attacks on #Afrin
January 20, 2019 | Press Releases

1-The great resistance and struggle of the peoples of western Kurdistan (Rojava) and Northern Syria has created a unique association within the community.
2-Our struggle which started as a battle against #ISIS in west of #Kurdistan evolved into a revolution which has stood against all kinds of invasion attempts.
3-Spending all its energy trying to legitimize its #occupation of #Syrian lands, #Turkey has resumed its efforts to stop the progress our forces have made in west #Kurdistan and to undermine the democratic and revolutionary development of our people.
4- #Turkish #invasion army and its #jihadist proxies launched attacks on #Afrin amid silence of those who did nothing but turning a blind eye to the occupation. #YPG, #YPJ and the people of #Afrin put up a rarely seen resistance against this barbarism until the end.
5-Hundreds of our fighters relentlessly resisted in face of those vicious attacks which were carried out with a disproportionate ground force, all kinds of heavy weapons, intense air attacks and the most advanced combat technology.
6-After the withdrawal on March 18, which aimed to prevent mass #killings of #civilians, the #occupying #Turkish army positioned the its troops in #Afrin city and districts along with numerous #islamist groups.
7-#Afrin was put into a dire situation due to serious human rights #violations #ethnic #celansing and daily atrocities.

As #YPG and #YPJ troops, we won’t remain silent in the face of occupation and fascist practices of any force, including #Turkey.
8-We affirm that we will increase the struggle against any kinds of fascism and invasion attempt until we achieve the emancipation of our people and #geography from #Turkish and #jihadist #invasion.
9-We will protect the values of our revolution against #Turkish #fascism by any means neccessary.
