Yekîneyên Parastina Gel’s (People’s Protection Units) ‘Wrath of Olives Operation Room’ assassinated a member of Sharran district’s local council, Akash Haji Ahmad Ali on a road in Der Sawan village. Full statement by the ‘Wrath of Olives Operation Room’;

Persons who acted together with the Turkish state as an agent for them have been warned since the first day of the invading Turkish state’s barbaric attacks against Afrin.

The Turkish state has accelerated their recruitment efforts in the region recently to achieve their goals.

Our forces have been monitoring the agent named Ekaş Hecî Ehmed Elî (42) who was a member of the traitors council formed by the Turkish state and he has been captured and killed in the Dêr Sewan village.

The agent named Ekaş Hecî Ehmed Elî aided the Turkish soldiers in the invasion of the Dêr Sewan village along with his family and later continued his agent activity. Due to the initiatives taken by this agent, dozens of civilians have been abducted by the Turkish state’s allied gangs. The fate of these civilians is still unknown.

The agent named Ekaş has also sent messages to the people who have had to migrate from Afrin and threatened to kill them.

On this basis, as the Wrath of the Olive Action Room, we warn all traitors and agents once again and call on them to come back from the line of treason. With the resistance of our people, the invaders will be defeated. These agents and traitors have their game sheets in the invaders’ hands, they will be torn up and burned whenever the invaders wish. Leave this treason behind and accept the free life along with your resisting people.

We promise that we will avenge every last drop of blood our martyrs shed and every single civilian who has been subjected to attacks by the Turkish state and their gangs. Be patient Afrin, the time for vengeance draws near.
