While the Syrian army fired many artillery shells killing 15 people and injuring 20 others committing another massacre against the Kurdish people.

‘the armed group calling itself ‘the Free Syrian Army’ fired bullets on unarmed people in order to force them to leave their houses and spread terror among the civilian citizens’ the statement added.

In response to the wish of people of aal-Ashrefiye and Sheikh Mawsuad, a delegation by the public council of Sheikh Al-Maqsuad took the initiative and discussed the situation with the armed groups which tried to enter the district in order to convince them to leave the neighborhood and to tell them that the people, both Kurds and Arabs, do not want to become victims for the current clashes between the armed groups and the Syrian Army’

The statement added that hundreds of people, Arabs and Kurds, were gathered to demonstrate heading towards al-Ashrefiye neighborhood to force those armed groups to leave the civilian residential areas but ‘the armed groups started to shoot at the unarmed demonstrators resulting in the killing and injuring a number of the Kurds’

‘We still call for putting an end for violence, killing, and massacres and finding peaceful and democratic solutions for the Syrian crisis’ the Democratic Society Movement confirmed. After the Syrian army and the armed groups announced the truce on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, we can see that both parties are paying no importance for those holy and blessed days trying directly and indirectly in different ways to undermine the Kurdish people’s well and in attempt to drag them into the war which is of no gain for anyone and to make them a victim for cheap bargains and leaving them exposed to massacres.

The Democratic Society Movement called upon the Kurdish people to ‘be cautious about and aware of vicious plans and tricks to drag them into a war of no gain and has destructive consequences and to gather around their organizations and establishments’. As we also call upon the Kurdish people everywhere in western Kurdistan ‘not to stand and watch those massacres and to support their brothers and sisters in Aleppo under the slogan ‘ is this your truce’ and to deliver a message to those parts in conflict that the kurish people is not alone and has a strong will which cannot be broken’

Statement  To the public opinion

Human sacrifices are al-Eid sacrifices in Syria

Although the sanctity of this holy month and pilgrims standing on Arafah and making sacrifices for God to forgive them and that peace and prosperity would prevail their homelands, but the Eid evening’s rituals is colored by blood of human sacrifices and by taking lives of innocent peoples despite the initial announcement of a cease-fire sought by the UN envoy Brahimi to stop the killings during al-Eid days.

What is happening in our country Syria is the result of a brutal, totalitarian, suppressive and corrupted Baathist regime and resorting to weapons in tackling national issues, and its insistence to go on in killings and shelling residential areas which are fully condemned by us. As we also condemned those circles insisting on violence and which try to drag the Kurdish people into the disastrous war, we have expressed our peaceful position of the revolution and we do believe that victory would be through peaceful means of struggle, but bringing the war into Western Kurdistan or the Kurdish residential areas and targeting or people are unacceptable and condemned act and no one could stop us in our peaceful and legitimate struggle away from regional and international powers.

What is happening in Syria and what has happened recently in al-Ashrefiye of destruction and killing is condemned by our people and its council- People’s Council of Western Kurdistan- and those warring parts would not but gather us around our national values and would increase our insistence to demand our people’s rights and to establish a plural democratic Syria for all of its people.

We call upon our Kurdish people to gather around its political and field leadership and to resort means which would grant the security of its areas and would take the responsibilities in the legitimate right of self-defense. As we call upon the warring parts to commit to the Eid cease-fire and to stop the violence.

We ask mercy for victims and the injured would soon get recovered. Shame be on criminal killers

The presidency of the People’s Council in Western Kurdistan.
