The signatory local, regional and international organizations and foundations are closely following with great concern the developments of the Turkish military operations in North and East Syria which habituates millions of people in addition to many IDPs from many Syrian regions.

The early hours of the bombardment have witnessed huge displacement and direct targeting for infrastructure and water sources and grain silos.

There were reports about civilian casualties in what seems to be an organized implication for the region into a wide-scale war to face military operations for Turkish army accompanied by Syrian opposition armed factions which are joining the Turkish agenda to push this safe region into destruction and devastation, and attack the relative stability which it enjoyed.

The concentrated Turkish attempts to invade villages, towns and cities in North East Syria will cause devastating results, and will create the ground for ethnic and sectarian conflict, and pave the way before the reactivation and return of ISIS sleeper cells, which will spare no chance to attack stability and attacking the region’s components which have countered terror and defeated it. This troubled atmosphere will lead to the displacement and exodus of millions of civilians and empty the region from its original residents.

We in civil society organizations we condemn the Turkish military attack which aims at invading these safe regions and we assert on the following points:

  • Bringing an immediate end to military operations.
  • The invasion of eastern Euphrates regions is risking the lives of millions of secure residents.
  • Steer away from violence and apply the language of dialogue in resolving he conflict under international supervision.
  • We call on the international community to pressure Turkey to bring an end to the military operation and stop interfering in Syrian affairs.
  • We call for providing an international protection for Eastern Euphrates regions since it is one of the safe regions.
  • We stand firm against any Turkish action aimed at demographic change and threatening social cohesion in the region.
  • We call on international organizations and organizations operating in the region to assist in providing shelter and urgent humanitarian aid for IDPs.
