Statement By Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Tanju Bilgiç, In Response To A Question Regarding The Syriacs Abducted In Syria , 28.02.2015

QA-6, 28 Febraury 2015

We strongly condemn the recent attacks by DEASH in villages that are predominantly populated by Syriacs and the abduction of many of them, including the elderly, women and children. We request the immediate and unconditional release of the hostages.

This grave incident is yet another indication of the never-ending misery of the oppressed people of Syria, who are indiscriminately targeted by the terrorism of DEASH and the Syrian regime.

Turkey will continue its support to all segments of the Syrian people with determination in a non-discriminatory way .
