Turkish occupying state stepped up its attacks on the Shengal province by targeting it with UAVs, following the failure of ISIS/Daesh mercenaries to carry out the plan of extermination against the Yazidi community, in cooperation with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the al-Kazemi Government, and their failure to incite Yazidis against the Autonomous Administration in Shengal province.
Commenting on what happens in Shengal, the member of the General Council of the Yazidi Federation of Syria explained (YÊS) Fawaz Ayew. In his statement to ANHA’s agency, "Turkey is an occupying state and openly declares its intentions to restore the Ottoman Empire and implement the Misak-ı Millî, and is working hard to make demographic change in its aspiration areas within Syria and Iraq, so it tried to empty Kobani and Shengal from their indigenous people by exploiting ISIS/ Daesh gangs in launching brutal attack in 2014 and through its direct occupation of Afrin 2018"
He added, if we looked on the three occupied areas, we would find it are densely crowded with Kurdish component, important border areas in the far south and south-west of Kurdistan, which in no way would provide a safe shelter for the Turkish occupation, which is an obstacle to its expansionist schemes, a demographic change was required."
Fawaz Ayew noted that" Judging Turkey's occupation policy is not only sufficient by highlighting what has happened and taking place in Shengal, but we must take a comprehensive look at its criminal movements and endeavours throughout the region in the absence of any international control or moral deterrence."
He pointed out that Turkey is seeking to empty the regions in Syria and Iraq from its indigenous people, and settling strange human groups in a bid to obliterate its identity.
Fawaz Ayew considered the presence of the Turkish occupying state in both Syria and Iraq illegal and a breach of the sovereignty of the two States, saying: "The presence of dozens of Turkish military bases in both Syria and Iraq without any legal ground to do so is a breach to the national sovereignty of the two States."
He continued: "From time to time, they target national and administrative figures in Shengal to strike against the resistance of the Yazidi forces, in addition to targeting citizens to destabilize the region and obstruct their return to Shengal."
Member of the General Council of the Federation of the Yazidis of Syria (YÊS), Fawaz Ayew, considered the Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDK) responsible for what is happening to Shengal, referring to several reasons, the most important of which is "the KDP's failure to recognize the Autonomous Administration and the Yazidi people's right to rule itself, in addition to the refusal to recognize with the legitimate Yazidi forces and attempts to create alternative military and civilian structures that are unacceptable to the Yazidi people, preventing the displaced Yazidis from returning to Shengal, the failure to investigate the setback of 3/8/2014 so far and not holding those responsible to account, and the unprecedented media attack to distort all the facts about Shengal, its people and its administration ".
On Iraq's foreign condemnation of the Turkish attacks on the Shengal province and the lack of practical steps, Ayew said: "Iraq's foreign affairs have done what the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) or its foreign affairs have not done, perhaps as far as they can do; the complex political situation in Iraq and the magnitude of the differences between the political blocs and the control of both Turkey and Iran.”
"In fact, there is no unified legitimate authority in Iraq, so we see fluctuation in all files, especially the Shengal file, which whenever it is introduced, is exposed to attractions between different blocs, which hampers any progress in it. This shows the different views of blocs and political and military forces about Shengal."
