"We will not allow anyone to dare and destroy what we have reached, and we are all for the benefit of the martyrs, we are all one people and one people and we do not wish war on any countries or any people, but if the war comes to us, we will defend," said he.

Asya Garbi on behalf of al-Tabqa civil administration said, "We stand today against any dominant and regional forces that contributed to the outbreak of the Syrian war, which claimed the lives of thousands of Syrians and still supports it, the tyrant of the Erdogan era."

 "Erdogan describes us today in the north and east of Syria as terrorists and calls for eliminating us. Why did not he describe Daesh such when it was its neighbors on the Syrian-Turkish border."

We call on all Syrians to be in solidarity with us. The differences between us are resolved between us, but the external aggression cannot be repressed except by weapons.
