We are in the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria recall with great pain this great event and condemn this deliberate terrorist act that targeted the security of citizens throughout the regions of Rojava in a desperate attempt to undermine the determination of the people of the region to defend their gains.
We also renew our condemnation of the massacre of the towns of Tel Aran and Tal Hasel, carried out by armed terrorist groups on this day of 2013 after the siege of the two towns, which killed dozens of unarmed civilians and led to the displacement of hundreds of citizens and the arrest of hundreds.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the martyrs and pledge to march on the path of all martyrs in the north and east of Syria to reach the rights that our society seeks in freedom and salvation from injustice and the elimination of all sleeper terrorist cells, whether for Damascus or other pro-Turkey organizations that target the security of our regions, targeting the gains of our martyrs through the constant threat that will not dissuade our people from its march and will only increase our determination to protect the land and the people in this safe Syrian territory.
