Kobani – North-Press Agency Fattah Issa - Fayyad Muhammad
The elderly man Muhammad Ahmad Hamo, in his village of Alishar, east of Kobani is awaiting the developments of the security situation in his village, which is less than 200m away from the separating wall with Turkey. He describes Turkey as an unjust state because it occupies a land that doesn’t belong to it, and it kills children with internationally prohibited weapons without deterrence or fear.
Hamo remembers his 90 years of life and how he lived in this land, describing Turkey's injustice and tyranny as unprecedented in all of his life, he was a witness to the details of the French Mandate in Syria, without mentioning any injustice being done against him or people of the region.
Hamo spoke to North-Press about Turkey's violations against the civilians and the silence of the world about them, saying: "Turkey is oppressing us and what it is doing is false. It has nothing in our country. It is doing this injustice because it can do without deterrence, if it is afraid, it wouldn't dare doing that".
The man who spent his life in his village, is surprised by the injustice which Turkey is doing without any reasons, and appeals to the international community to face the oppressor Erdogan and deter him, saying: "Turkey is killing us for no reason, we didn't take anything that belong to them, and didn't loot Erdogan's property, nor killed his son or father to do this injustice, don't the countries of the world see what he is doing to us to tell him to fear God and leave us and not to interfere into our affairs".
The impact of the Turkish threats on the civilians The Turkish threats and the military invasion carried out by Turkey and its backed armed groups have caused tragedies for the civilians both the old and the young. Hamo explained the impact of what Turkey is doing in his village, saying: "Our work has stopped, there is fear and anxiety among the people, people haven't planted their lands so far, the schools are even closed and the children are deprived of education".
Hamo, who was a witness to the French Mandate period and the change of the governments in Syria, recalled the scenes of burning the child Mohammad in Ras al-Ain (Sere Kaniye), which he saw on television.
"The countries of the world should help us and support us, our young children have done no fault to come this oppressor and burns them with chemical weapons, foreign countries don't do so, and only Turkey does such acts and this injustice", Hamo said.
He added: "I'm 86 years old and France has been in this region for 25 years, but it hasn't done such injustice to us. I remember what France was doing, it wasn't oppressing us as the traitorous Turkey is doing to our people".
Hamo who is a father of 16 sons and daughters, and a grandfather of more than 50 grandchildren concludes his talk about the situation of his people in the light of the ongoing Turkish threats to the area saying: "People here cannot sleep, they are watching the situation and are permanently mobilized, we are afraid of our young people, I'm not afraid of myself, I lived my own age, but what sin these children and young people have done to live this injustice by Turkey?!”
