Sara Organization calls for criminals to be brought to the ICC
Sara foundation joined the chorus of outrage at the misogynistic war crimes committed on the body of YPJ fighter Amara Renas.
Sara Organization Against Violence Against Women denounced the inhumane treatment against YPJ fighter Amara Renas whose dead body was also desecrated after she fell a martyr in Kobane countryside on October 21 while defending her homeland against the Turkish occupation.
Remarking that the Turkish state’s attack on the north and east of Syria is a violation of all ethics and humanitarian principles and international laws, the organization said that with this blatant aggression, the mercenary terrorist factions loyal to the Turkish army committed looting of the properties of the inhabitants of Serekaniye (Ras al-Ain) and Gire Spi (Tal Abyad).
The Sara women’s organization noted that the occupation forces have also carried out killings, torture and executions of civilians, and used internationally prohibited weapons, and continued; “These gangs have already committed such crimes in the public eye without any moral or legal deterrent. A major example came in the recent Turkish aggression, when a terrorist faction operating under the command of the Turkish army desecrated the body of the fighter Amara from the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) after the she was martyred in the village of Jalabiya, near Kobani. This has shown the killers brutality and barbarism as we saw under other names such as Jabhat al-Nusra, or ISIS. Today under the name of the National Army and others, they commit the same terrorism and the same aggression and inhumanity. They show their weakness and their fear of the will of the free and fighting women they cannot face while alive.”
The Sara Organization saluted the heroic resistance of the YPJ and condemned the heinous crime of the terrorist factions.
The organization called on the international community and concerned human rights organizations to intervene to stop the Turkish aggression with its mercenaries on northern and eastern Syria and hold them accountable.
“For crimes that amount to crimes against humanity, these criminals and perpetrators of violations must be brought to the International Criminal Court,” added the organization.
