International community must stand with Kurdish people – Molloy

Sinn Féin MP Francie Molloy has said the international community has a duty to stand up for the Kurdish community as they face the prospect of a new onslaught from Turkey. 

The Mid Ulster MP said: 

“The beleaguered Kurdish community is now facing the possibility of a new military onslaught by the Turkish regime. 

“The Kurdish communities in north eastern Syria have already suffered greatly and there is considerable concern for them around the world. 

“This move comes at a time when the Turkish regime has already increased its repression and oppression of the Kurds. 

“The international community has a duty and responsibility to stand by the Kurdish people and to challenge the oppression by the Turkish authorities.”
