Aleppo - SMART

Residents of the city of Afrin, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria, called on the international community to move to stop any Turkish attack on the region, expressing their rejection of Turkish preparations to start a battle there.

On Tuesday, one of the residents of the city in an interview with SMART, Ahmed Abdo, refused to comment on the Turkish preparations for a battle on the town. Abdo held the responsibility of the Turkish attack on the countries that support it political and military, and the international community has also pressured on Turkey to stop its military operations.

Another civilian who nicknamed himself, Omar Abu Elan, expressed the Turkish attack of aggression, accusing the Turkish invasion of cooperating with the “Takfiri groups.” He also called on the international community to assume its responsibilities to stop the Turkish shelling on Afrin, adding that Turkey seeks to “spread fear among the people.”

A woman from the city, Tiran Abdo, called on the international organizations and the international community to stop the Turkish bombardment. She said that “the area is under heavy shelling, causing fear among civilians.”

The head of the external body of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration, Suleiman Jaafar, told SMART in a statement that all the members in Afrin are from the region. He added that all the residents would not accept the handing over of the area to another area, referring to the fighting in Eastern Idlib and accusations of handing over its eastern countryside to the Syrian regime in exchange for the entry of Turkey to the city of Afrin.

On the attitude of the United States of America, which is the most significant supporter of the Syrian Democratic Forces(), Jaafar reported that they do not depend on America, and rely on the people of the region only. They also do not reject the support of any country, adding that the United States “did not give the green light to the Kurds or Turkey by attacking each other.”

Jaafar accused Russia of seeking to ensure its interests and objectives only, while it was supposed to be a guarantor of the de-escalation agreement.

The villages of the Afrin area of Baasoufan, Ghazawiya, Kafarganah, Mar'naz, Maalikiya, Qurbaabah and Gesr al-Harkariyya were hit by heavy Turkish artillery shelling in the past three days, killing one of the Kurdish People's Protection Units and injuring a child.

A source told SMART that Turkey is preparing for military action in the city of Afrin in the coming days, pointing out that Turkey sent military reinforcements to the border with Afrin, and military equipment for bases inside the Syrian, including tanks, armored carriers, armored vehicles, Medium and heavy.

Turkey has threatened several times to launch an attack on the area of Afrin. The Turkish defense minister said that the operation against the Kurdish Units perhaps it will be soon. The Turkish president said in previous statements that his country has to clean the city of Afrin from them. It is not excluded to communicate with the Head of the Syrian regime, Bashar al-Assad around it.
