NEWS CENTER - SDF Spokesperson Kino Gabriyel, stating that Turkey is violating the ceasefire, said: "We note that we reserve the right to respond to any attack against our forces."

The statement is as follows: 
The statement reads as follows;
 
“Upon the request and approval of the SDF, and with the mediation of the United States, an immediate ceasefire agreement was reached last night between the SDF and the Turkish state along the distance between Sri Kaniye / Ras al-Ain and Tal Abyad / Gre Spi.
 
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) abided by it from yesterday night at 22:00 Syrian local time until this moment, while the Turkish state forces and the militias affiliated with it did not abide by this decision, but this morning they targeted the village of Bab al-Khair, southeast of Ras al-Ain. The bombing caused five martyrs from SDF and a number of civilians. The shelling is still continuing, hindering access to the wounded and helping the civilians.
 
We in the Syrian Democratic Council address the world public opinion, affirming that it is upon the principle of preserving the lives, capabilities of our people and stopping the catastrophic displacement estimated by hundreds of thousands since the beginning of the Turkish invasion of northern Syria.
 
Based on the principle of the unity of Syria and the integrity of its territory, we agreed to the ceasefire; but Ankara, its occupation army and thousands of its mercenaries disregarded this agreement, did not abide by it and continued their aggression as if such agreement did not happen at all.
 
We therefore, call upon the United Nations, the UN Security Council, the Arab League, and in particular the United States of America, as the mediator of this agreement and its sponsor, to start from its responsibilities and move immediately to send international observers in order to maintain the temporary ceasefire agreement and make it permanent that leads to complete withdrawal of the Turkish occupation army, who commits genocide with the help of its armed groups. This is affirmed by Amnesty International in its report.
 
We thank all personalities and powers in the world who have expressed their solidarity with us in the face of the Turkish aggression and its mercenaries, calling for continuation of global solidarity movement to prevent war and aggression regime in Turkey to achieve its objectives.
 
We also affirm that the quickest way to end the Syrian crisis is UN’s sponsorship of a genuine Syrian dialogue based on political solution and the relevant international resolutions.”
