Kurdish National Council Criticizes “Silencing” of its Members in Eastern Syria

The Kurdish National Council in Syria condemned acts that contradict all human values and human rights, which fall within the framework of the policy of silencing voices, preventing freedom of political action, and restricting the Kurdish National Council and the activity of its members.

The Council called on all concerned parties, forces and organizations that believe in freedom and democracy and human rights organizations to condemn these acts of intimidation that lead to more migration, increase the state of anxiety and tension, and demand that the PYD stop them and put an end to these violations, release the abductees and respect freedom of opinion and political action.
