The Deputy Co-chair of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, Elizabeth Gorea, came during a special interview held by Hawar news agency to talk about the United Nations recent decision to open Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey as the only crossing for the introduction of humanitarian aid to the Syrians.
The decision to open Bab al-Hawa crossing raises many questions
Elizabeth Gorea started her speech saying: "The decision to open Bab al-Hawa border crossing with Turkey is politicized, will double the Syrian people's suffering. It raises many questions and has serious repercussions for the Syrian people in general, as it lies under the control of the Turkish occupation and terrorist factions, and will have major repercussions on the Syrians in general."
She noted that the regions of northern and eastern Syria contain more than 15 camps for the displaced whose number exceeds 130,000, and more than 80,000 displaced within the cities of northern and eastern Syria are living in difficult humanitarian conditions, as they need urgent assistance, especially during the multiplication of suffering after the application of Caesar Act.
She added: "We made many calls to open the crossings in the areas of northern and eastern Syria to ensure safe aid reaches the Syrians and the displaced, but so far there has been no response to our demands, which has doubled the burden on the Autonomous Administration."
The decision raises doubts about to which extent the Syrians will benefit from it
During her speech, Elizabeth Gorea said that Erdogan was not satisfied with the direct war on the Syrians, but rather practiced the policy of abuse and starvation against the people of Syria in general through cutting off water, burning crops and other means and methods. The opening of this crossing and handing over his administration to the Justice and Development Party and terrorist groups raises doubts about the extent to which Syrians will benefit."
During her speech, she indicated that it is imperative for the United Nations to reconsider its recent decision because there is "great doubt about the access of aid to the Syrians, especially as the areas to which aid will enter are under the control of the armed terrorist factions that are experiencing security tensions."
Erdogan will monopolize humanitarian aid
The Deputy Co-chair Elizabeth Gorea confirmed that Erdogan through the recent decision to open the crossing will work to revive the jihadi factions, and monopolize humanitarian aid for them at the expense of the rest of the Syrians.
She added: "It is not possible for a person to fight the Syrians by all means and for years to secure or help entering aid to the people in these areas."
Regarding the consequences of Caesar Act and the extent of its impact on the regions of northern and eastern Syria, Elizabeth Gorea said: "Since the beginning of the Caesar Act implementation, there have been statements by the American administration excluding the Autonomous Administration regions of the Caesar Penal Code, but on the ground the situation is completely different and there are no steps or signs on the ground to exclude our regions from the consequences of Caesar Act."
At the end of her speech, the Deputy Co-chair of the Executive Council of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, Elizabeth Gorea, called for swift action by the United Nations and the countries affecting the Syrian file to move towards the political solution that would end the suffering of the Syrians, which is the solution that the Autonomous Administration has demanded since its establishment.
