The Movement of the Syrian Revolutionary Youth issued a statement to the public, where it was read with the participation of members of the Movement of the Syrian Revolutionary Youth in Manbij. It was read by the joint chairman of the Youth and Sports Committee, Mohsen Jassim, in which he said:
On behalf of the Syrian Revolutionary Youth in Manbij and its countryside
We have closely watched a fire on the Island of Emrali, and in the spirit of revolutionary, we call on the international community, human rights organizations and humanitarian organizations to assume their legal and humanitarian responsibility to maintain the health and safety of the leader Abdullah Ocalan on the Island of Emrali. We call on the democratic peoples and all the revolutionary movements and humanitarian institutions around the world to rise up against the fascist Turkish government and to carry out their humanitarian duty and organize all kinds of events to form a protection ring around the leader of humanity, Abdullah Ocalan and we call for pressuring on the fascist Turkish government to allow the leader's lawyer to visit him and to check on his health and the health of his fellow detainees.
We call for an international investigation into the causes of this fire for fear that it may be fabricated and hold the Turkish government and the international community fully responsible in the event of any danger to the life of our leader and his fellow detainees."
The statement concluded by slogans that are demanding Ocalan's freedom.
