The Syrian Interim Government condemns in the strongest terms the aggressions of the Kurdish YPG militants against residents of rural the Al-Hasakah province, warning that such acts could undermine the fabric of the Syrian society and derail the course of the Syrian revolution and further deepen the divisions that the Assad regime created among the components of the Syrian society.
In a statement released yesterday, the Syrian Interim Government placed full responsibility for what is happening and what might happen in rural Al-Hasakah on the militias of the YPD and the YPG. The statement points out that “the civil, democratic pluralistic for which the Syrian revolution erupted will be impossible to achieve if these crimes did not stop. These aggressions are just another form of the tyranny which the Syrian people vowed to get rid of, and another kind of terrorism that Syrians will not accept be a substitute the terrorism of the Assad regime and the extremist groups.”
The statement went on: “Justifying these grave violations by fighting ISIS stem only from a fascist nature that match with the nature of the despotic regimes that have long justified their crimes by confronting the enemies. These justifications cannot be accepted neither morally nor politically, since Syrians from all components are facing an existential threat represented by the Assad regime and the extremist groups, and must unite the face of this threat.”
The statement comes in response to widespread aggressions by the YPD and YPG militias backed by regime forces against residents of the rural villages in the Al-Hasakah province. These militias have blown up and set many houses on fire, forcing thousands to flee their homes. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
