On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, hundreds of Afrin and al-Shahba people and the martyrs' families headed on Wednesday morning towards the shrines of their people in the martyrs' cemeteries; the Martyr Seydo, the Martyr Rafiq and the Martyr Avista Shrines.
The people lightened up the incense on the martyrs' shrines, put the wreaths of flowers, some offered blessing and litanies beside the tombs, others read the holy Quran and some of them distributed the sweets of the Eid to the people.
In the cemetery of Ahras town, the people held a minute of silence. After that, the Martyrs' Families Council of Afrin and al-Shahba delivered two statements in Kurdish and Arabic, and they were read by the members of the Martyrs' Families Council Bakr Aliko and Shervin Rashid.
The statement congratulated all the people, the martyrs' families and the Kurdish people leader Abdullah Ocalan on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.
The statement commemorated thousands of Afrin martyrs in the martyrs' tombs; Seydo, Rafiq and Avista, and they denounced the immoral actions of the Turkish occupation against the martyrs' shrines, destroying the shrines and dredging them without any movement by any side of humanitarian and Human Rights organizations.
The statement also pointed out that the spirit of the Resistance of the Age and the struggle of the resistant people in al-Shahba to liberate Afrin was the major Eid.
In the conclusion, the statement demanded the people of north and east Syria to move to liberate Afrin as they liberated the areas of north and east Syria from Daesh mercenaries.
After that, the co-chair of Afrin region Sheraz Hamo delivered a speech and congratulated the people and the martyrs' families on Eid al-Fitr, and she commemorated all the martyrs of freedom.
Sheraz said, "The Turkish occupation is weaker before the martyrs' power, so it resorted to destroying the cemeteries and dredging the martyrs' tombs. The martyrs are in the hearts of the peoples that believe in freedom."
She added, "Afrin resistant people in al-Shahba proved with their standing and will their power, so the liberation is inevitable."
The activity ended with chanting the slogans that saluted the martyrs, the Resistance of the Age and the Kurdish people leader Abdullah Ocalan.
