The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) condemns the heinous murder of activist Amin Al-Ali, member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party. It stresses that this crime is a continuation of the criminal approach of the terrorist PYD militia, which is derived from the policies and mentality of the regime, including killings, kidnappings, torture and mass displacement.
The SOC offers its condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Al-Ali who was brutally tortured to death while being held in the prisons of the PYD militia.
The SOC affirms the responsibility of the international community towards the support and protection that these militias are receiving and which are directly linked to and affiliated with the PKK terrorist organization. It stresses the need to dismantle all of its arms, stop their crimes, release all civilians kidnapped in their prisons, and cut off the support they are receiving from international parties.
