Regarding Turkish Invasion on Northeastern Syria

Posted on November. 3. 2019

During its October 17-18, 2019 meeting, the Armenian Evangelical World Council (AEWC) discussed the October 10, 2019 Turkey’s unilateral invasion in the northeastern region of Syria and its devastating consequences on its inhabitants.
The AEWC strongly condemns not only Turkey’s flagrant violation of international law and human rights, but also its ethnic cleansing of Kurds and other minorities –Arabs, Yezidis, Assyrians and Armenians.
The AEWC appeals to the United Nation Organization (UNO) and the international community to condemn Turkey for:
a.) This illegal invasion that caused numerous deaths and destruction of property;
b.) The creation of thousands of refugees; c.) The ethnic cleansing of
people. The AEWC also appeals to UNO and international community to take immediate practical steps to put an end to the bloodshed, to insure the safe return of the refugees to their homes, and to protect the citizens of Syria. It is the heartfelt prayers of AEWC that peace will prevail in northeastern Syria.
