The Turkish occupation state is practicing the policy of extermination against the peoples of the region, as the regions of northern and eastern Syria are under constant attack by the Turkish occupation army, as they launch attacks on the regions of southern Kurdistan, Şengal province and Maxmûr camp, and recently committed a massacre against women activists (Hebon Mulla Khalil and Zahra Berkel who were Kongra Star members, and Amina Wessi) in the village of Helinj in Kobane canton on June 23.
The activist women see that the Turkish occupation state is afraid of the thought of free women, so it targets the activists who fight for women's freedom. Rodin Issa, among the women who have been fighting for years against Turkish attacks and an administrator in Kongra Star, explained: "The Turkish occupation is trying, through its continuous attacks, to occupy the region."
Turkey seeks to paralyze women's movements
Rodin Issa noted that the Turkish occupation specifically targets the female activists in women's movements, and seeks to paralyze their movement and break their will. She said: "We, the women's movements in Rojava, will stand up and resist all attempts of occupation that target us and all women, especially those who struggle to organize society through their free ideas."
Rodin Issa stressed the continuation of the struggle and resistance against the Turkish occupation and its continuous attacks on the martyrs' line. She said: "The Turkish occupation is trying to kill us and exterminate us, and we, the women, will respond to the confrontation with struggle and steadfastness."
The citizen Mona Farouk believes that the martyr Zilan (Zainab Kenaji) is an example of free women, pointing to the self-sacrifice operation that she carried out against the Turkish occupation army on June 30, 1996. She said: "With her operation, she has become an example of free women."
The struggler Zilan carried out a commando operation against the Turkish occupation army in the city of Dêrsim, which was credited with escalating the struggle among the Kurdish people in general, and Kurdish women in particular, as she became a solid ground for organizing the democratic society.
Mona Farouk noted that Turkey is afraid of the free thought and free will of women, especially after the heroic resistance shown by Women's Protection Units (YPJ) against ISIS mercenaries in the north and east of Syria.
