SI expresses concern over situation in north-eastern Syria

London, Oct 10 (UNI) The Socialist International (SI) has said that "unilateral" Turkish military action in north-eastern Syria can have severe consequences for regional stability, human rights and the continuing fight against terrorism.
In a statement on Wednesday, the SI said it is deeply concerned by the potential implications of unilateral Turkish military action in north-eastern Syria
"Any escalation in fighting in the north east of Syria will mean further suffering and trauma, caused by increased violence and the potential displacement of hundreds of thousands of civilians living in the region. Humanitarian aid may be disrupted to those living in displaced people's camps, placing at most risk those who have already been forced to leave their homes and are dependent on this assistance," it added.
The further destabilisation of the situation in Syria and potential revival of the terrorist group ISIS could be a grave consequence of any ill-considered military action in northern Syria. The premature withdrawal of coalition forces from north-eastern Syria leaves Kurdish and other forces in the region, who have spent several years on the front line of the fight against terrorism, vulnerable to a resurgence by ISIS, said the statement.
"The Socialist International reiterates its firm support for the Syrian Kurds, who have been on the frontline against terrorism in that country and have provided a hospitable environment for refugees and internally displaced persons. The international community must not abandon the Kurds in Syria and the Syrian Democratic Forces, 11,000 of whom have given their lives fighting ISIS."
The delicate situation in the north east of Syria requires restraint to be shown by all sides if an escalation in violence, increased bloodshed and a human rights disaster are to be avoided.
