In the center of the city, the demonstration turned into a mass rally where the co-chair of the Dirk Canton Council Abdul Rahim Mohammed delivered a speech and said, "The goal of the occupation wall is to separate Afrin from Syria, and the Turkish occupation is continuing its crimes against the people of Afrin and imposing demographic change."
