ZALIN, Syria — During a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the 19 July Uprising, Co-Chair of the Executive Council of Gozarto (Jazira) Region in the Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) in North and East Syria Nazira Goreya confirmed that the uprising was a significant development in the struggle for women’s rights and political participation at all levels.
She pointed out that the 19 July Uprising brought fruitful results in all administrative, cultural, political, and social fields. The movement also ultimately led to the liberation of North and East Syria and the establishment of the DAA.
Goreya stressed the need to adhere to the uprising’s achievements to face the current Turkish threats that seek to control new parts of the Syrian territory.
She commended the will and struggle of the peoples of North and East Syria against all forms of intellectual, military, and economic attacks, stating that the achieved victory would not have been accomplished without the determination of peoples of the region.
“We will be able to overcome all current threats,” she added.
Goreya emphasized the DAA’s confidence in victory and that freedom and democracy will prevail in a new decentralized, pluralistic Syria that guarantees the rights of all ethnic and religious groups.
