The statement included:
“On behalf of the people of Kafr Naya, the world is witnessing these criminal acts committed by the Turkish government of Justice and Development against our safe people in Afrin and al-Shahba. This is an extension of the massacres and crimes committed by Daesh and Jabhit al-Nusra which were Turkish-made exploited for the Ottoman occupation of the Syrian territories, as happened in Jarablus and al-Bab, Azaz and Idlib.
Today, the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries are committing war crimes and massacres against civilians, children, women and old people, destroying monuments and tombs, mosques and stealing private property in front of the eyes of the international community and human rights organizations without moving. The Syrian Democratic Forces’ tournaments appeared in defense of Syrian territory and in order to preserve its unity, all the terrorist attacks on the region were broken. The Turkish occupier and its mercenaries were repelled by the bodies of the martyrs defending their homeland launching from their human principles.
We are the people of Kafr Naya, as we salute the resistance of our people in the areas of Afrin and al-Shahba. We affirm our stand against the Turkish occupiers and our destiny is one in defending our homeland Syria.
We also condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the attacks by the Turkish state and its mercenaries on part of the Syrian territory, Afrin and Al-Shahba, and try to occupy it to achieve its Ottoman dream and tell the occupier that we will resist until the last drop in our veins in defense of the soil of our homeland.
The United Nations and all the human rights organizations, including the United States, Russia and the European Union, have also condemned the crimes committed by the Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its mercenaries in the areas of Afrin and al-Shahba, and called on them to stand up for their humanitarian responsibilities and protect civilians as stipulated in international charters.
Finally, we, the people of Kafr Naya, salute the historical resistance of the Syrian Democratic Forces, especially the Women’s Protection Forces, and we promise that we will be in the first line of defense alongside them to expel the occupier from the entire Syrian territory. We declare to the whole world that Syrian soil is forbidden to the Ottoman occupation.
The statement ended with slogans saluting the Resistance of the Age.
