Coordinator of the Al-Jazira and Euphrates Committee in the Syrian Opposition Coalition, Abdelbaset Abdullatif, stressed that the decision of the terrorist PYD militia to ban female students from wearing the niqab in schools represents a dangerous step that will threaten the Syrian social fabric. He said that the move is unprecedented in the history of Syria.
Abdullatif stressed that the PYD militia does not only seek to bring about demographic and culture changes in the region only, but also seeks to change the local customs and traditions, and impose alien customs on the Syrian society.
Local media outlets reported that dozens of people took to the streets in the villages of Hawayej Bu Masaa, Hamar Al Ali, Al Sawa, and Hawaij Bu Diab in western rural Deir Ezzor to protest against the decision. The protestors held banners calling on the PYD militia to reverse the decision, combat drugs and smuggling, release detainees, withdraw its militants from public places, and improve the living conditions.
Abdullatif pointed out that the PYD militia is carrying out terrorist practices that are not different from those of ISIS or the Assad regime, calling for ending support for this militia and forcing it to leave the region. (Source: SOC’s media department)
