Call from YPJ to women

NEWS CENTER- “We are calling on the Kurdish women to protest these attacks in an organized way in their localities and support the defense forces,” said the YPJ by calling on women against the Turkish attacks on Rojava and Shengal.

While the people continue to react to the attacks of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) on Rojava and Shengal, Turkey has launched an attack on Efrîn Canton that time. YPJ (Women’s Defense Units) General Command issued a written statement on the Turkish army’s jet fighters attacking Karachok and Shengal. In the statement, it is reported that 20 fighters of YPG and YPJ lost their lives and 18 fighters were wounded in the attack.

The YPJ statement is as follows;

“This attack is based on the treacherous alliances of the KDP. The KDP alliance is known to have provided a foundation for these attacks. On the other hand, YPG and YPJ forces take their place with the Coalition in the fight against ISIS and have shouldered a great duty to defend human dignity. This Turkish attack on our forces didn’t happen without the knowledge of the coalition forces. The silence of the Coalition in the face of these attacks confirms and approves this. The women’s freedom struggle movement can not accept approval of this situation.

All Kurdistan forces and all the Kurdish people should show their national protest. As the Women’s Defense Units, we call on all who fight for women’s freedom to protest and follow their duty against AKP’s misogyny. We are calling on all who fight for women’s freedom to increase our alliances and act in solidarity in all areas.

We are calling on the Kurdish women to protest these attacks in an organized way in their localities and support the defense forces. We will make those who target the Kurdish people and the free women regret it. We salute our friends who joined the martyrs and say that we will strengthen the fight.”
