SOHR sources say that the “Syrian Interim Government” has issued a statement offering condolences on the death of Turkish soldiers and officers killed by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party in Kara area in northern Iraq.
The statement, of which the Syrian Observatory obtained a copy, reads “the Syrian Interim Government, on behalf of the free Syrian people, offers its condolences to the Government and people of Turkey on the death of 13 Turkish civilians after being kidnapped and executed by PKK terrorist gangs in Kara area in northern Iraq. We pray to Allah to have mercy upon them and that their families be able to overcome this tragedy.
We condemn this reprehensible terrorist act and express solidarity with the Turkish people whom we share the same destiny and pain with. The Syrian people have suffered greatly from the horrifying practices and criminality committed by terrorists and extremists, particularly this terrorist and coward party and its affiliates that keep going on their criminal and bloody practices against the Syrian people whether through practicing tyranny over people in areas under the party’s control or through involving in bomb-attacks in north Syria region, which claimed the lives of many innocent civilians, like in Al-Ra’i, Azaz, Afrin and other areas.
We call upon the international community to denounce this terrorist action and adopt strict procedures in order to eliminate this terrorist organization and put an end to criminality it practices against the innocent Syrian and Turkish civilians. We pray to Allah that peace and stability prevail throughout Turkey and that Turkey be able to defeat everybody threatening it or jeopardising its national security.”
