On this occasion, we assure all women, our people and humanity that we women’s Defense Units (YPJ) are going to fight back on behalf of all women and spare no effort in order to defeat woman’s enemy represented by ISIS terrorists.
At the same time we will retaliate for Shenga’s women and all those who were captured and slaughtered by ISIS.
With this mentality and strong will we will make very part of our land would be a hell for them.
Again we took an oath for our comrades; Arin, Rojda, Sema and many others that we will make our bodies bridges for our people in order to maintain freedom and dignity .
Such evil power represents an enemy for humanity as much as for women therefore, all women should contribute to eliminate these forces of slavery.
Therefore, we call upon all women in the Middle East, and in the entire world to stand with our struggle in Rojava as well as to support Women’s Defense Units. Because it guarantees freedom for women and creates a new life for her.
