121 Syrian Organizations Condemn Repeated Hostilities in Northern Syria and Demand that the Security Council Immediately Intervene to End the Violence

The U.S., EU, and Russia must address increasing instability and prevent new military operations in Northern Syria

Frequent military threats and hostilities across northern Syria continue to wreak havoc on the region, which is home to hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons (IDPs) who fled other afflicted Syrian areas.
Hostilities in the region have hiked since early August 2022. Cities, towns, and villages in northern Syria witnessed dozens of attacks, with mortar shells, rockets, aircraft, and drones. Turkey has perpetrated the majority of these attacks.
In July 2022 alone, hostilities killed and injured 31 persons in Tall Tamr, Ayn Issa, Abu Rasin/Zarkan, Ayn al-Arab/Kobanî, Tall Rifaat, and more. These towns and villages were bombarded 75 times at least, with the attacks launched from areas where the Turkish military and their affiliated armed factions are stationed.
Since early 2022, hundreds of military attacks were documented along the frontlines in northern Syria. The attacks killed and injured dozens of civilians in the areas separating the territories held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Turkish military, armed opposition groups, Russian military, and the Syrian government forces.
Notably, the ongoing hostilities have not deterred Turkey from forcibly returning thousands of Syrian refugees in its territories.
According to official figures issued by Syria-Turkey border crossings, mainly those at Bab al-Hawa, Bab al-Salameh, and Tal Abyad, Turkey has deported approximately 11,000 Syrian refugees since early 2022, ignoring UN statements that Syria remains unsafe.
Previous military offensives in the region had catastrophic impacts on the area and its people, displacing tens of thousands and leading to numerous human rights violations which have been extensively documented by international organizations and independent UN bodies. Considering this precedent, as well as the worsening situation, the undersigned organizations express their deep concern with the repeated threats of a new military operation in northern Syria and demand that:
UN and Security Council Member States
Establish a ceasefire across Syria, ensure that no party shall violate the ceasefire, and prevent any prospective military offensives in northern Syria that are likely to undermine stability in the region.
Exert pressure to end the forced returns perpetrated against Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon and other countries, act to ensure the voluntary, safe, and dignified return of refugees to their original places of residence, and repudiate plans of demographic change across Syria.
