Civilians demand Russia to impose no-fly zone in Syria’s northeast

QAMISHI, Syria (North Press) – On Monday, civilians demonstrated in front of the Russian headquarters in the city of Qamishli, northeast Syria, calling for a no-fly zone on the region. 

This comes in a message presented by representatives of the demonstrators to a number of the Russian forces’ members near Qamishli International Airport, after a protest in front of al-Bassel Roundabout was launched to denounce the recent Turkish attacks.

The message stressed that Turkey seeks to revive terrorism again, sow fear among the residents and aims at displacing them.

Thus, “Russia should intervene quickly to limit these attacks, as it is able to do so, in addition to the fact that there are millions of signatures calling for the imposition of a no-fly zone on the region,” according to what was stated in the message. 

The protest came following a Turkish drone attack on the city of Qamishli, which claimed the lives of four civilians, including two children, and the injury of two others.
