“With 16 years since the struggle of our party, and more than 8 years of the revolution in northern and eastern Syria, we can say that our military forces: YPG, YPJ and SDF have reversed the balance of power and failed many plans against our peoples,” concluded Hassou. These forces have become the difficult number in the equation for any solution in Syria and the whole region, and today cannot ignore their role in fighting and eliminating terrorism. "
The ceremony ended and the participants danced Dabka on the beat of revolutionary songs.
