Lawyer Haitham Bakr said, "We reject any proposal or any decisions to prosecute mercenaries outside the Syrian territories, because the Syrian people were witnesses to the most heinous crimes committed by mercenaries."

Bakr pointed out that it is legally necessary to prosecute a person who commits a crime on the land where these crimes were committed, "this law is called local jurisdiction, so the trial of mercenaries is must be in Syrian territories because the Syrian people are the most people who have suffered injustice and oppression and the Syrian Democratic Forces are the only force that has resisted Daesh who controlled large areas of Syrian and Iraqi territory, the only force that made the world live in security.

The lawyer Haitham Bakr, said that they as lawyers will continue to demand and discuss the establishment of an international tribunal within the Syrian territory, especially in the north and east of Syria.

"The establishment of an international court outside Syrian territory is contrary to international law, and if an international tribunal is established in northern and eastern Syria, thousands of people, children and women will witness the massacres and violations committed by mercenaries of Daesh," the lawyer Wela al-Ali said.
