North and East Syria Foreign Affairs official: Turkish resettlement project fuels long conflict and endless war between Syrian people

ZALIN, Syria — During his participation in the sit-in protest organized by several Syriac (Aramean–Assyrian–Chaldean) organizations, Deputy Co-Chair of the Foreign Relations Commission of the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) of North and East Syria Fener al-Geit condemned Turkey’s repeated violations against the people of the region.

“Turkey, as it has to other states throughout history, has blatantly interfered with the Syrian crisis and distorted the real agenda of the Syrian citizens,” said Al-Geit. “Unfortunately, Turkey distorted their agenda in favor of its own.”

He added that Turkey opened the borders to allow extremists to enter Syrian territory and commit massacres against the Syrian people from all religions, denominations, and ethnicities.

“Turkey has stoked religious fanaticism. It has used Syrians in fighting in Armenia and Libya for the benefit of the Turkish agenda,” he continued, calling on the international community and the United Nations to pressure Turkey to stop its infringements against the peoples of the region.

He described Turkey’s resettlement project as dangerous, indicating that it aims at demographic change in northern Syria at the expense of the original people.

Al-Geit warned the supporting countries and organizations of this malicious project, which would fuel a long conflict and endless war between the Syrian people.
