Kurdish parties condemn assassination of opposition figure Mashaal Tammo by terrorists
Kurdish parties on Saturday condemned the assassination of the nationalist opposition figure Mashaal Tammo at the hands of armed terrorist groups.
In a statement of which SANA has got a copy, the parties said that this crime aims at instigating sedition and undermining the stability of Hasaka Province.
The Kurdish parties called upon the Kurds to be aware of the purposes of this crime, calling upon the competent authorities to reveal the perpetrators of this crime as soon as possible.
Aussi: Assassination of Tammo is Within the Conspiracy
Head of the National Initiative for Syrian Kurds Omar Aussi said that the assassination of the nationalist opposition figure Mashaal Tammo is within the framework of the conspiracy against Syria.
In an interview with the Syrian TV, Aussi added that the assassination was executed by external sides and armed terrorist groups in the country in the context of eliminating the political, academic and religious prominent figures and instigating sedition between the Kurds and the state.
He stressed that after those external sides and the armed terrorist groups failed in fulfilling their scheme, they resorted to the acts of destruction, chaos and sabotage.
He pointed out that Kurds, as all the Syrians, will not be deceived by such acts, highlighting that the Kurds are patriots and with the reform program.
Earlier, body of Tammo was escorted from Qamishli city to the town of al-Janaziah after being assassinated by an armed terrorist group.
Governor of Hasaka Province Mu’za Salloum, attending the ceremony, said that “This crime committed by the armed terrorist groups aims at undermining the stability of the province that has been stable and calm since the beginning of the events.”
An armed terrorist group on Friday afternoon assassinated Tammo and wounded his son Marcel and Zahida Rash Kilo.
Tammo had continuously stressed the importance of national unity, comprehensive political, economic and social reforms and rejection of the calls of foreign interference in the Syrian internal affairs. He left behind a wife and six sons.
Analysts: Nationalistic Opposition Figure Assassination is Part of Foreign Scheme
Chairman of the Jordanian Democratic Popular Unity Party Saed Diyab condemned the assassination of the nationalistic opposition figure Mashaal Tammo at the hands of terrorist groups, considering that such acts are aimed at aggravating the internal situation in Syria.
In an interview with the Syrian TV on Saturday, Diyab cautioned against anti-Arab US and Zionist attempts to sow sedition among peoples of the region, stressing that all nationalistic powers in Syria have to stand up to foreign challenges.
Rasmi al-Jabiri, a Jordanian political analyst, said the assassination of Tammo aims at destabilizing Syria and liquidating the political and scientific elite and national unity figures.
The political analyst Yehiya Salibi said the current conspiracy targeting the region, especially Syria, is intended to fragment it serving Zionist interests.
For his part, Political Analyst Abdul-Aziz Hassan said the assassination is part of foreign schemes, adding that the Syrian people are alert to these attempts.
He added that assassinating Tammo is an indication of the terrorists’ bankruptcy after the Western countries failed to pass a resolution against Syria at the UN Security Council. Champress
