KHABUR REGION, Syria — On the eve of Easter, Turkish forces occupying North and East Syria bombed the Syriac–Assyrian village of Tel Tawil, leading to the martyrdom of member of the Assyrian Khabur Guards Zaia Tal Tamir and the wounding of two other fighters.

A delegation from the Syriac Union Party (SUP), Assyrian Democratic Party (ADP), Syriac–Assyrian Martyrs’ Families Foundation, Syriac Military Council (Mawtbo Fulhoyo Suryoyo, MFS), and the spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Aram Hanna visited the headquarters of the Nattoreh Security Forces to inquire about the health of Nattoreh leader Loya Robert Isho.

They also discussed issues of concern to the Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) people and the Document of Understanding recently signed between the SUP, ADP, and the Assyrian Democratic Organization (ADO). 

They also discussed joint activities between the youth of the Syriac–Assyrian people, the activation of the economic and property committees, and other agreed upon committees.

The negative effects of the Turkish violations on the villages of the Syriac–Assyrian people, and the security and military situation in the region, were among the most important topics of discussion.

A separate SUP delegation visited the headquarters of the Assyrian Khabur Guards.

The delegation offered condolences about the martyrdom of fighter Zaia Tal Tamir and wished a speedy recovery for the injured, including the fighter Raymon Odisho.
