Condemnation from ENKS: “Acts of intimidation push the population to flee and empty the area”

ARK News… In a new escalating step against the Kurdish National Council, an armed group affiliated with the Democratic Union Party (PYD) threw a bomb at the office of the Kurdish National Council in Derbasiya, which resulted in severe material damage to the office. The same group also broke the locks of the office of the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Syria and wrote offensive slogans on its walls. On the evening of the same day, in the same city, groups affiliated with them gathered in front of the headquarters of the Kurdish National Council and the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Syria, insulting and burning the flag of Kurdistan.

These new intimidating acts come after a series of arrests that affected the supporters of the Council and the assault on its headquarters, and at a time when our people are suffering from the difficult economic and security conditions, which push them to more displacement and empty the region of its original inhabitants.

The continuation of these violations is an indication of targeting the ground on which the negotiations were built, providing confidence-building measures and ensuring that they are not repeated, this is what the US side and the SDF commander pledged, and these actions also come against the tireless efforts made by the US side to resume the negotiations that have been stalled for months between the Kurdish National Council and the PYNK.

We condemn these intimidating practices, which lead to the deepening of existing differences and rifts and do not fall within the framework of the efforts made to unite the Kurdish ranks.

We assure our Kurdish people in Syria that we will move forward in defending their national rights and will not be deterred by such harmful actions on the Kurdish cause and democracy throughout the country.
