“We have strengthened our defense capacities to counter any attack,” the Commander-in-Chief said during his visit to martyrs’ families.
SDF Commander-in-Chief Mazloum Abdi visited the families of martyrs Hamza and Fares, who had been martyred on October 20, 2021, due to shelling by Turkish drone on the center of the northeastern Syrian city of Kobane downtown, northeastern Syria.
Mazloum Abdi expressed his deepest condolences to the families and said that the Turkish occupation is trying through these attacks to strike a stability in the region by launching new military operations. “The Turkish occupation aims to create chaos, kill and displace more civilians. However, we are keen to stop the bloodshed of our people, and we are making all effort through the guarantors to maintain de-escalation and abide by the international agreement that strengthens our capacity to protect the security and stability of the region,” he said.
Abdi said that Turkey has not been able to persuade any international party to occupy another Syrian territory, adding: “We aim to maintain stability with all other parties, the humanitarian situation in the country does not tolerate other wars, and civilians can no longer bear this war, which turns them into victims every time, so Turkey uses this kind of attacks.”
During the visit, the SDF leader praised the steadfastness of the families of the martyrs and promised to follow in the footsteps of the martyrs, saying: “Over the past two years, we have strengthened our defense capacities to counter any attack, and we will protect and preserve the gains of the July Revolution.”
