Al-Hasakah - SMART

On Monday, hundreds of supporters of the National Kurdish Council demonstrated in the city of Al-Qamishli, Al-Hasakah, Northeast Syria. They condemned the attack by the Iraqi Popular Crowd militias on areas in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

A member of the General Secretariat of the Council, Mohamed Ismail, told SMART that the demonstrators support the attitude of the Kurdistan President, Massoud Barzani. They demanded the European countries and the United States of America to stop the tragedy of the Kurdish people, as Ismail described

A member of the Syrian Writers Association, Luqman Yusuf, denied the international silence about attacks by popular crowds militias on the Kurdish people. He considered the attitude of the United States and Europe "inconsistent with the magnitude of the Kurds' sacrifices in the fight against terrorism."

One of the demonstrators considered what is happening in Iraqi Kurdistan "genocide." She indicated her support for the Kurdish Peshmerga forces and demanded the unity of the Kurds.

These developments came in response to the vote for a referendum on the independence of the Kurdistan region of Iraq. The Syrian National Kurdish Council welcomes the Kurdistan independence, but the international and regional countries reject it.

The Leader of the Iraqi Popular Crowd, Faleh Al-Fayadh, announced that they will cooperate with the Syrian loyalist forces to control the border between the two countries.

There are three crossings between the Kurdish self-management-controlled areas in Syria and the Kurdistan region of Iraq, which are the Al-Sweidya, Al-Ya'arobia and Semalaka crossings. The Simalka crossing was closed by the authorities in the region in March 2016 after the declaration of the federal regime in Northern Syria.
