ANHA Match 3, 2016
In a statement issued today, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) officially declared the launching of “Operation Avenge of Judi and Elin.”
The statement reads: “the terrorist groups, with support from the Turkish state, waged a heavy attack on the area between Serekani and Gire Spi (Tel Avyad). They aimed at seizing that road and occupying the area once again.”
The statement goes on: “Despite our immediate intervention, the ISIS managed to commit massacre against civilians in Gire Spi and Hamam al-Turkmen village. In order to pay homage to the martyrs and take the revenge of those civilians particularly two fallen children named Judi Khalaf and Elin Khalaf, who became the symbols of those massacres, we launched the operation today…
We promise the brave components of the Syrian mosaic that we will win our fourth battle, too. We won the battles of Hol, Tishrin Dam, and Shadadi and these victories will go on until all Syrian territory is cleared of terrorist groups.”
Only hours since the issuance of the above statement, the SDF, backed by the US-led coalition airstrikes, have managed to advance 35 kilometers in the mentioned area.
