Kobani and Afrin are under Siege – 51 Kurdish citizens were kidnapped
Statement by the Union of Kurdish Students in Syria (UKSS)
The Islamic State in Iraq and Sham “ISIS ” has imposed blockade on the towns of Kobanî and Afrîn since 03. December 2013, this blockade includes blocking all the leading roads into both cities, preventing the entry of food supplies and preventing the entry or the exit of the citizenry of these two cities . At the same time, the “ISIS” has abducted since the begi[n]ning of the siege to this moment more than 51 Kurdish civilians, including women and children from the cities of Manbej and Jarablos and no one knows their fate until now.
The Syrian National Coalition and the leaders of the Free Syrian Army-FSA who work in the coalition were the first to defend (Alnusra Front ) and (The Islamic State in Iraq and Sham “ISIS ” ) when their name was placed on the list of terrorism by the West and they are still silent about the crimes of these two alient groups to Syria under the umbrella of supporting the revolution and the armed rebels.
The Syrian National Coalition and the commanders of Free Army do not have any authority over them now and they can not control neither politically nor militarily the new developments and perhaps the coalition and free military commanders themselves will be the coming target to these infidel groups that has no Islam morals but only exploiting its name, and having no faith but dark ignorance.
As we have lost the trust in the Syrian National Coalition and the commanders of Free Syrian Army beneath it, we call on international governments, human rights organizations and the non-governmental active organizations to protect the civilians “particularly those who are eliminated because of ethnic background which is considered a crime against humanity”, furthermore; to intervene immediately to stop the blockade on those cities in particular, and on the other Kurdish region “of northern Syria” in general so that the local peaceful community could exercise its life there normally in the crisis that victimized by it the good and the bad and we’ve gotten all sorts of abandonment, bitter, sweet and salty.
We also demand relief organizations to go immediately to help the citizenry in those cities and to find a way to deliver food supplies to them before people pass an expected humanitarian crisis in the light of the blockade imposed by these dark forces, at the same time we call on the international community to support the civil and the political Kurdish movements who are working on building a real civilian administration in order to achieve stability and security for the indigenous families in the region and the displaced families from other cities who are living now in northern Syria.
