The Co-chair of the Executive Council in the Autonomous Administration criticized the international silence towards the violations and crimes committed against Syrians in the areas occupied by Turkey and its mercenaries, and considered the report of the international investigation committee insufficient because it only sheds light on a part of the crimes.

The Independent International Investigation Committee on Syrian Affairs presented a report to the Human Rights Council on September 14, in which it talked about the crimes committed by the Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries between January 11 and July 1 of this year in the occupied areas especially "Afrin, Serêkaniyê, and Girê Spi".

Commenting on this, the Co-chair of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, Abdul Hamid Al-Mehbash, said that despite the clear crimes of Turkey and its mercenaries, the international community keeps silent.

Al-Mahbash indicated in a statement to our agency that the report clarified the violations and practices committed by the so-called "Syrian National Army" and the mercenaries associated with these forces, against the people of northern and eastern Syria, especially in "Afrin, and Serêkaniyê / Ras al-Ain, and Girê Spi / Tell Abyad. "

He pointed out that this report clearly clarified the violations and crimes committed, both during and after the attacks on the region.

"These crimes were committed against civilians, and this indicates the scale of the crimes committed against the population with all its components and segments, especially the Kurdish component," he added.

He indicated that these crimes aim at "demographic change", in preparation for housing the families of the Syrian National Army mercenaries.

Al-Mahbash pointed out that the report clarified several types of crimes, adding: "The report includes premeditated murders, including the murder of politician Hevrin Khalaf, and also includes these mercenaries committing robberies and looting by mercenaries."

Al-Mehbash added, "There are also kidnappings for ransom, stealing religious places, obliterating the cultural identity of the components of these areas, stealing antiquities, rape, torture inside prisons, and forcing the population to change beliefs and religions, as is the case with the Yazidi component."

Al-Mahbash emphasized that these crimes are international criminal offenses committed by the "Syrian National Army", as well as senior officers and commanders of the Turkish army."

Al-Mahbash indicated that all human rights and feminist organizations must assume their responsibilities and duties to file criminal cases. Families of Syrian victims, must file criminal cases before international courts as well".

Al-Mehbash described the report as inadequate and said: "This report of the investigation committee is inadequate. The committee's report may have reached only some of these violations. We thank the committee that shed light on these violations, but it is not sufficient because it is a small part of those violations and crimes committed against our people." .

Al-Mahbash criticized the silence of the international community failure to assume its responsibility towards the region, and expressed his regret for the silence of the international community in the face of the crimes committed in front of his eyes and ears..

Al-Mahbash emphasized that the legal and moral responsibility rests with the international community, and that it should bear its stigma towards these crimes, which is considered a negative attitude that must be changed.
