All social and political events and segments of society in northern and eastern Syria condemn the repeated Turkish threats to occupy the northern and eastern regions of Syria. In this regard, the leaders of the Arab tribes in the region appealed to the people of the region to unite against Turkish threats.
Sheikh Turki Hamza al-Mandil, the official spokesman for al-Jebour tribe, said: "We, as the elders of the area in Tel Berrak and Tal Hamis denounce the Turkish threats on the Syrian border."
Sheikh Turki Hamza al-Mandil stressed the need for the international community to take clear positions towards Turkish threats to their security and stability adding, "Turkey and its agents are trying to divide Syria. We do not accept this. We do not accept the Turkish occupation and its repeated threats against our people."
Al-Mandil said: "We, the elders of the region, do not accept the entry of any state to our lands in order to occupy them and threaten its security and stability. We will be in the first rows and we will respond and face the attacks."
Ahmed Shatti, one of the elders of the Shemmar clan, said in the context, " why Turkey is attacking our land? why is the international community silent?" Al-Shatti appealed to all tribal leaders in the region to stand united against the threats of the Turkish occupation."
For seven years, the Turkish state has continued to threaten the north and east of Syria, occupying several cities, including Jrablos, Bab, A'zaz, Afrin and Idlib, and aspiring to expand its influence in Syria by occupying northern and eastern Syria.
