The attacks on the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood of Aleppo by AKP-controlled, so-called Syrian National Coalition (SNC) and ENKS gang members have continued since February 16. They have used chemical gases, which are prohibited by international conventions, in the attacks yesterday. 14 civilians have been killed and 52 civilians, including women and children, have been wounded in the attacks since February. Sheikh Maqsoud women, who had to migrate to Efrîn Canton due to ongoing the attacks on the Sheikh Maqsoud, reacted to the attacks. Women asked, “Why this silence towards these massacres? They also criticized the rights defenders in the international arena.

Fatma Silêman, who had to migrate to Efrîn Canton due to ongoing attacks on Sheikh Maqsoud, said that the people who have attacked Sheikh Maqsoud are terrorists and the world must call terrorists. Fatma said, “Gang members have blockaded our neighborhood for months. They don’t allow food or medicine to enter the neighborhood. They don’t allow people to go out from their houses. The silence has continued. Why do they stay silent?

Gang members have continued to attacks by support of Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan. However, Kurdish people will destroy his plans. We won’t stay silent against the attacks on us. We will protect the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) forces as we can. We won’t allow terrorists to enter our streets.”

Meanwhile, Zekiye Yusuf called on Ccvil society and human rights organizations by saying,

“The silence must be broken against these attacks. Thousands of people live in these streets and they are facing to be killed. Everyone must give a voice. Dirty powers have attacked the streets and neighborhoods of Rojava. They will lose how they did in Kobanê. No power could break the resistance of Kurdish people. We will continue to raise our voice against crime against the humanity.”
