The Democratic Federation of North Syria is committed to countering the threats of the Islamic State and Islamic extremism and jihadism in all forms. As part of this mission, the DFNS has joined forces with the multinational Global Coalition Against Daesh, led by the United States. The military units under the lead of the DFNS are the most effective ground forces in the ongoing battle against these extremist threats, and with the support of the Coalition, have become the main defenders of freedom and equality for the world as a whole. These coordinated military efforts have had immense impact in reducing the threat the Islamic State poses to global security, successfully reducing and degrading ISIS capacity, size, and influence.

The DFNS is fully dedicated to eradicating the threat of extremism and protecting the ideals of freedom and equality for all. Alongside the essential partners operating in the Coalition, the DFNS pledges to continue to work towards the successful completion of this mission, with the ultimate goal of creating a safe and peaceful world where all peoples are respected and free regardless of gender, race, religion, or ethnicity.

Erdogan has declared war on Syrian Kurdish population.

NATO’s member, Turkey, is invading Afrin, a democratically self-governed region in North Syria.

The canton of Afrin has been the most secure and safe region in Syria for its inhabitants despite the embargo. It is democratically governed by locally-elected councils and it hosts more than 300,000 IDPs from the other Syrian cities.

We implore the international community to act in the name of peace and justice, and work to halt this Turkish offensive with such efforts as instituting a no-fly zone over Afrin, sending a team of UN observers, or providing peace-keeping troops to secure the Turkish-Syrian border.
