During its occupation of several areas in northern and eastern Syria, Daesh mercenaries committed the worst massacres against the people of the region and displaced many of their homes. Now, after their defeat, thousands of mercenaries are detained in the prisons of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), so the elders and sheikhs of Manbij clans have called for the establishment of an international court to hold mercenaries accountable for their actions.
"We demand that the leadership of Syrian Democratic Forces and the international community to form an international court to hold Daesh mercenaries accountable, those in prison to be legally punished and under the supervision of the international community," said Sheikh Ibrahim al-Shalash of the Bani Saeed clan in Manbij.
Sheikh Abdul Razzaq Ismail, one of the leaders of the Dulmakha clan in the city of Manbij, pointed out to the criminal acts committed by Daesh mercenaries, "mercenaries who have devastated the country and killed many of the people of the region during their occupation of large areas of the country."
Abdel Razzaq Ismail noted to the period the city experienced amid the obscurantism of mercenaries as there are still a lot of people who were arrested by Daesh mercenaries whose fate is unknown and they are missing, under fake pretexts, Daesh have stoned women and beheaded people.
Ismail praised the role of SDF fighters to liberate northern and eastern Syria from Daesh mercenaries and arresting mercenaries during the recent fighting in the village of Al-Bagouz, and called on the international community to form an international court to consider the practices of mercenaries and their heinous terrorist acts against the people of the region.
In the same context, Sheikh Khalid Al-Shibli, one of the sheikhs of Ghana'im clan, said: "Daesh mercenaries extinguished life in the areas they have controlled and practiced criminal acts that cannot be described."
After the Syrian Democratic Forces completely liberated the north and east of Syria from mercenaries, the claims have been increased by politicians, dignitaries, sheikhs and local people to establish an international court to hold mercenaries accountable in the area where the crimes were committed.
