Lawyer reveals hypocrisy of Turkish state

The co-chair of the Bar Association of Serekaniye explained that the goal of the Turkish occupation of returning refugees to the north and east of Syria is to change the demography of the region, create sedition and conflicts between the components of the region, and use the refugees as a pretext to intervene in the Syrian affairs.

The Syrian Democratic Forces, together with the United States of America and the Turkish State, have reached a security mechanism to protect the border between Turkey and northern and eastern Syria.

This has already begun through the handover of YPG and YPJ, the border protection to local military councils.

Turkey claims that it will establish camps in the region to accommodate Syrian refugees.

In this regard, the Hawar News Agency met with the co-chair of the Bar Association of Serekaniye branch, Mahmoud Jamil, to discuss the mechanism of the safe area.

Jamil pointed out at the beginning of his speech, that since the beginning of the revolutionary movement in Syria, the people of the regions of northeastern Syria have been able to keep their areas safe through the peace between all the components and sects in the region, saying: "In late 2012, the Turkish occupation tried through mercenaries to create strife, but it has failed a result of strong national cohesion among the people of the region."

He said that thanks to the YPG and the YPJ who managed to defeat the mercenary groups and protect the region and maintain its security and stability, the region now lives peacefully.

Jamil pointed out that the safe area took place in the event of a dispute between the neighboring country or between two peoples in any part of the world, "and therefore must be free of military forces and safe from both sides, rejecting any presence and incursion of the Turkish occupation army within the areas of northern and eastern Syria because the Turkish state is a party to the Syrian conflict and has been an enemy of the Kurdish people since ancient times in all parts of Kurdistan.

Jamil pointed out that the peoples of the region stand against the Turkish intervention and everyone rejects the Turkish intervention in our regions.

Demographic change is a war crime according to international conventions

"Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, Turkey has agreed with European countries to receive refugees on its soil in search of its interests. After its internal crises and pressures are exacerbated, Turkey has been trying to get rid of its refugees and use them as a card," he said.

Jamil highlighted Turkey's arguments on the refugee issue, saying that since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, Turkey has agreed with European countries to receive refugees on its territory in search of its interests, and after the influx of internal crises and the pressures facing them, Turkey is trying to get rid of the refugees it has, and use them as a political card to interfere in Syrian affairs.

Jamil said that the goal of the Turkish occupation of the settlement of refugees in the region from Kobani to the Derik area of Qamishlo Canton, is to change it demographically, and create sedition and conflicts between the components of the region.

He added that the demographic change is a war crime and against humanity in accordance with international conventions, including the 1966 international treaties recognized by more than 193 countries, which emphasize the prevention of demographic change for a particular minority or people.

Jamil stressed that the indigenous people have the right to return to their homes except for those who committed crimes against the people of the region. "Upon their return, they will be subject to the courts of Autonomous Administration as they are considered war criminals."
