Just as we were able to defeat ISIS mercenaries in the region, With the support and solid will of our people, we will be able to eliminate these cells as well, we appeal to the international community to work to prevent ISIS from returning
'Sources of support and funding for sleeper cells must be stopped'
The co-chair of Qamishlo canton council, Avram Isaac, said: “The emergence and revitalization of ISIS in the region is detrimental to all humanity,” he said. The bombings that targeted the cities of Qamishlo, al-Hassakeh, al-Raqqa, Deir-ez-Zor and Tirbespiyê are the result of direct dealings between ISIS mercenaries and the Turkish state. Our primary goal is to protect the security of the region. What ISIS mercenaries are doing is inhumane, civilians are being targeted in the area. We appeal to all states to work to stop attacks on our regions. We must stop the support that the sleeper cells receive.
