NISREEN ALI / AL-HASAKAH
With approaching the liberation of all areas of north and east of Syria from IS' grip in full by virtue of SDF, al-Hasakah city's people have expressed their happiness for the liberation of all the areas from IS' domination.
The Future Syria Party's member in al-Hasakah Saleh al-Zobaa has explained that IS was defeated militarily and geographically, but its ideology is still present in the minds of some people in north and east of Syria who are working as dormant cells, which is considered more dangerous from the military presence.
Al-Zobaa pointed out that despite the fact that IS mercenaries were a threat to the whole world and were international, some countries were supporting terrorism to prolong the crisis in Syria, such as the "Fascist Erdogan's regime," noting that he still supports and trains the sleeping terrorist cells.
Al-Zobaa said that the International Coalition played a role in fighting IS, but the main role was for SDF because they were fighting on the ground with strength and courage.
One of the administrators in al-Hasakah Canton Council Khaled Jaber said, "Our forces have defeated blackness and the obscurantist mentality all over the world, but IS' ideology has spread, and we will start a new war against IS' thought which poses a danger to our people, and it is a must to confront it."
"We are very happy for IS terrorist organization's defeat in the region, but we must end the dark thought and eliminate it through humane training and lectures, the cohesion of peoples with each other, and highlighting the importance the peoples' fraternity in the region," he said.
