The violations of the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries are accelerating in Afrin canton. The occupation began on May 15 of this year with fires in many forests in the villages and districts of Afrin canton where the affected area is estimated at more than 3 thousand and 11 hectares.
The fire that the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries had recently unleashed into the village of Soghana began in the villages of Kurzila and Deir Meshmesh and the surrounding of Kimar, Kokba, Baneh, Aqiba and Basleh villages.
The people of Shoghana quickly extinguished the fire before reaching their crops and trees.
On the other hand, the construction of the separation wall in the vicinity of Afrin is still ongoing amidst international silence. The wall is being built in the villages of Jalber, Kimar and Meriamin. The length of the wall has exceeded 3,500 meters. The Turkish occupation and its mercenaries aim at annexing Afrin and changing its demographics repeating the scenario of Iskenderun.
In this context, the ANHA news agency met the residents of the Sherawa whose lands were burned, adjacent to the occupied villages where the wall is being built.
"The Turkish occupation and its mercenaries burned the forests and agricultural crops in Afrin, where the fire reached our village today, after thousands of hectares of farmland and thousands of olive trees were burned on its way," said Zakaria Mohammed Majid, a resident of the village of Soghana.
Majid noted that as the Turkish occupation and its mercenaries have been unable to break the will of the people of Afrin and their resistance, they are burning crops, "The wall built in the vicinity of Afrin did not break our will."
Siham Mohammed, a resident of the village of Soghana in the district of Sherawa, noted that the Turkish occupation set fire to the village of Deir Meshmash and the fire reached the village of Soghana today.
"The Turkish occupation and its mercenaries are targeting by these actions our will to break it and drive us out of our land and homes, but we tell them that we will hold on to our resistance and our land to the last breath in us." said Fadila Hassan.
