The statement stressed the insistence and adherence to the resistance against the occupation and praised the resistance of the people of Afrin against the occupation, and added, "The resistance of our people against this aggression in its new form for 58 days, during which they expressed heroism and sacrifice, has become an example of history in terms of adherence to land, values, history and nature embodied by our youth, women and our children in general in their resistance"
"Today, despite the circumstances of the war and the imbalance in the equipment, we are still on the covenant with our martyrs, and our resistance continues and develops at all political, diplomatic, popular, and military levels, and this resistance has proven that the wheel of history will not turn back, and that Turkey will search for its black history in our regions in particular and Syria in general, it is only running behind the mirage " the statement continued.
