The spokesman of the Syrian Democratic Forces, Kino Gabriel, has just issued a public opinion statement on the declared ceasefire and violations by the Turkish occupation army and its mercenaries.
The text read:
“On the basis of Thursday’s ceasefire resolution, all the battlefields of our forces have entered into legitimate defense since October 17 at 10 pm. Only in response, our units have not conducted any military operation in the occupied or other war zones. However, attacks by Turkish occupation army with artillery and reconnaissance planes, as well as attacks by mercenary groups, did not stop at Serekaniye/ Ras Al Ain front. Since then, 13 fighters have martyred as well as five civilians.
We call on all parties, in particular the parties to the ceasefire resolution, to act in accordance with the resolution, and affirm the right of our forces to respond to attacks within the framework of the legitimate right of defense. "
