Turkish escalation in NE Syria provides space for terrorists, Syriac official

TEL TAMR, Syria (North Press) – Turkish escalation on frontlines northeast Syria aimed to provide proper environment for the terrorist cells in the region, Matay Hana, spokesman for the Syriac Military Council, said Monday.

Yesterday, the Turkish forces and the Turkish-backed armed factions bombed dozens of inhabited villages of Tel Tamr and Abu Rasin towns, north of Hasakah, northeast Syria, with heavy weapons and drones wounding a civilian and members of the Syriac Military Council in addition to leaving massive material losses.

“The recent Turkish escalation provides a safe environment for the terrorist cells operating throughout our areas and allows them to move secretly to fulfill their criminal schemes,” Hana added.

The Syriac Military Council spokesman held the Turkish forces responsibility for “escalation of terrorism throughout our areas particularly in Hawl Camp.”

Hana criticized the Russian stance over the Turkish escalation and the failure to react to the successive attacks targeting residents’ houses on frontlines as well as military vehicles.

“Such practices reveal the occupation’s ends and goals that fall under the framework of displacing people of the region and breaking the people’s resistance which was and is still continuing through the resistance of the Syriac Military Council alongside the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF),” he noted.

The Syriac official stressed, “Our forces will go ahead playing a key role in defeating terrorism and disclosing and curbing the Islamic State Organization (ISIS) intention. Additionally, we will preserve our defensive role within the framework of our right to the legitimate defense of the region.”
