We have been informed by our people in Syria that today (25 April) Turkish warplanes have been attacking the area around Derik in Northern Syria. We heard that there are many casualties.
Turkey also attacked Shingal (Sinjar Mountain) in Iraq the home of the Yazidi people.
Derek is a Christian town, which is part of the Federation of Northern Syria where Kurds, Arabs and Syriac Christians live and govern together and defend together themselves against ISIS.
The Syriac Christians in Derik have been part of the fierce resistance against ISIS. They now live in freedom thanks to the freedom of religion in the Federation of Northern Syria that is defended by the Syrian Democratic Forces – SDF.
Our urgent plea to the US, EU and global Christian community is to demand an immediate end to the Turkish attacks on our people. Will the world just sit down and wait until we all are killed and driven away? No country provided our people with arms and they hardly received any political support from any country. Thanks to that Turkey feels that it can do this to us and the Yazidi’s.
Do our Syriac people not deserve peace and security? We do no longer ask for prayers, we ask for real support. If support does not arrive, if these attacks are not stopped, no prayer will help us anymore.
Please contact your MP, Congressman, Senator, MEP and Government and support our demand for real help. We urge President Trump and the European Council to end the genocide against our people and the Yazidi’s.
