With the absence of any serious initiative to activate the political process and the inability of the international community to exert pressure on the regime to implement international resolutions, foremost of which is Resolution 2254 to resolve the Syrian crisis, the Arab countries also did not succeed in forcing the regime to implement its commitments after its return to the Arab League.
The Syrian crisis has become exacerbated day after day, and with it the suffering of the Syrians in general, whether at home or in the refugee camps, is increasing, especially with the deterioration of the economic situation and the collapse of the value of the Syrian pound against foreign currencies, at a time when the Syrian regime does not feel any responsibility towards the citizens whose percentage of those who live has reached far below the poverty line, very terrible, especially when the monthly wage for a Syrian worker does not exceed a few dollars, and this regime leaves the rope open to the corrupt and those who control the necks of citizens from its various apparatuses, all this in front of the sight and silence of the international community and those concerned with human rights, so that the pain of all Syrians becomes numbers. In pictures, this miserable reality applies to the Syrian regions outside the control of the regime, albeit in a different way in their impact on the political, social and living life of citizens.
This situation is getting worse in Afrin, Sari Kaniye (Ras al-Ain) and Gire Spy (Tel Abyad) in light of the ongoing demographic change and the continuation of violations against the people of the region, by many armed factions there.
In the Kurdish areas under the control of the PYD, people have been suffering for years in the field of education, and the compulsory recruitment campaigns have not stopped pursuing the remaining young people as breadwinners for their families, and the kidnapping of minors, in addition to the exacerbation of the drinking water crisis in cities and towns, especially in the cities of Hasakah and Tal Several years have passed since its escalation without this authority seeking to put forward alternative projects that would end this tragedy once and for all.
With these prominent headlines about the suffering of the people, and in the face of the collapse of the value of the Syrian pound and the insane rise in the prices of materials without supervision or accountability, the PYD authority raised the prices of fuel (gas, petrol and diesel) to cause an additional increase in the prices of most services and basic needs, foremost of which are transportation fees and bread. The basic consumer goods, and all food supplies, are these fuels extracted from oil, which is produced locally and which is the mainstay of the economy in the region, and it is supposed to be the main support for the basic service materials that provide the lowest elements of stability and security in living and life, instead of being a cause of an increase Suffering and pushing people to search for ways to emigrate and to follow the paths of death for fear of the unknown future, which leads to a demographic change in our regions.
The Kurdish National Council, while presenting part of the suffering of the Kurdish people and the people of other components in general in all Syrian regions, at a time when it condemns the intimidating policies and unilateral measures and measures against citizens by the authorities controlling all Syrian regions, which increases their pain, and calls for not manipulating their livelihood It appeals to the international community and relief and humanitarian organizations to pay attention to this reality, and calls on them to provide assistance to the people of these regions, as is the case with others, whether in kind or through health, service and development projects that have been largely denied under unrealistic pretexts and pretexts. And work to save millions from destitution and worry about their fate and the fate of their children.
The Council affirms that the implementation of international resolutions to find a final solution to the Syrian issue is the best way to put an end to the Syrian tragedy, and to achieve security and peace for its citizens.
