The mercenaries of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhet al- Nusra) recently took control of the centre of the occupied city of Afrin after the mercenaries of the "Jabha al-Shamiya" fled to the occupied city of Azaz with a green light from the Turkish occupying state, according to local sources from within the occupied canton of Afrin.
On this subject, ANHA’s agency interviewed with a member of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Aleppo, Walid Bakr.
Bakr noted that the Turkish occupying state's aim of interfering in Syrian affairs "was to get Islamic groups to control the power in Syria, as well as to fight against the aspirations of the Kurdish people to run themselves."
"As a result of the SDF's response to the attacks and plots of the Turkish occupying state and its preservation of its areas of Turkish mercenaries and ISIS, Turkey has left only a paper of support for the terrorists of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham to fight the Kurds and occupy the region."
"The Turkish occupying state does not want peace and democracy to prevail in Syria and is working hard to expand its occupation of Syrian territory, under the pretext of protecting its" national security.”
"HTS" mercenaries enter Afrin with agreement with Turkey
Walid Bakr asserted that "HTS has previously taken control of Idlib in cooperation with the Turkish occupying state, and today opens the way for it to take control of Afrin and the rest of the areas it occupies."
"If Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) takes control of these areas, it will become all areas occupied by a single front, and thus Turkey will be able to negotiate them with the Government of Damascus in the future."
"The situation in Syria is very complex; as a result of intervention by foreign States (Russia, Iran, Turkey, America and most Gulf States), and these countries are trying to take advantage of developments in the north of Syria to their advantage ".
"The Government of Damascus must change its policies, as well as the international community working on its interests. This may have prolonged the Syrian crisis, without finding any solution. Every State wants to conduct its agendas in the region."
AANES is the solution project
" AANES works to protect the gains made in the blood of thousands of martyrs. It continues to support its people in all its components in defending these gains. However, pressures there are, it will never give up these gains and will defend itself, whether it be the Government of Damascus or mercenaries supported by the Turkish occupying state."
"The hand of AANES and the components of North and East Syria is extended to all, and it is working for a final and comprehensive agreement to resolve the Syrian crisis on the basis of a democratic, pluralistic and decentralized Syria."
"There is no other solution than accepting the AANES’ project; because it is a modern and democratic project and Syria cannot be managed by the former mentality, the mentality of the central regime, but must be managed by AANES and all components must live together.”
"The Syrian people have been suffering from war for more than 10 years, and the Turkish occupying state is not interested in the crises that the Syrian people are going through, but they are always looking for their interests. Today, they are trading their mercenaries that they have been supporting, with Russia and the Government of Damascus, and this will be dangerous for the people. Syria will live in a new crisis with the control of the North Syria."
In conclusion, the member of the Democratic Union Party, Walid Bakr, called on the Syrian people to unite and join hands to remove the Turkish occupier and its mercenary from Syrian territory. "
