On Saturday, 32 parties issued a statement to the public opinion condemning the Turkish occupation state's targeting of Sulaymaniyah airport in Başûr (Southern Kurdistan), stating:
On the seventh of this month, Sulaymaniyah International Airport in the Kurdistan region of Iraq was subjected to a blatant attack by a Turkish drone, without causing any loss of life.
This attack comes days after Turkey announced the closure of its airspace to planes flying to and from Sulaymaniyah airport, which indicates that this targeting is one of Turkey's goals behind the closure decision.
This attack also comes within the framework of the series of continuous Turkish violations and aggressions against the territory and sovereignty of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, to strike security, destabilize, mix cards, create chaos, sedition and division between the Kurdish forces.
We, in the political parties and forces in North and East Syria, condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the blatant Turkish attack on Sulaymaniyah airport, and we consider it a serious violation and infringement of the sovereignty of Iraq and the Kurdistan region and the security of citizens, which calls for a unified and firm Iraqi position.
We also call on the various Kurdish and Kurdish political forces to unify the position and line up regarding the continuous Turkish aggressions, whether in Iraqi Kurdistan or Rojava - northeastern Syria. Turkey's main goal is to strike the just cause of the Kurdish people and their entire liberation movement.
We declare our full solidarity with our brothers in Sulaymaniyah and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and stress that we are all in one trench, our enemy is one enemy, our destiny is one, and our cause is one.
