Hands Off Assyrian Land!
Throughout Syria, especially in the Northern region of Hasakah, militant Kurdish groups, like the YPG, have been systematically attempting to drive Assyrians from their lands and villages. This “Kurdification” of Syria has been condemned by international groups like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
This past month the Assyrian Democratic Party of Syria issued a statement in which they too condemned the process of a Kurdish land-grab, specifically an unjust and illegal law passed by the Legislative Council of Kurdish Self Governance which claims the right to take control of land owned by those who have been forced to flee the violence in Syria.
Below we have reproduced the full statement from the Assyrian Democratic Party in both English and Arabic.
Restore Nineveh Now stands with the Assyrian Democratic Party of Syria in opposition to this illegal and unjust attempt to push Assyrians off their land, especially in this time of war and distress.
