Dr. Majed Abu Ali is a dentist from Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus, which has been under siege for the last two years. Since 2012, he has served as spokesman and public relations director for the United Medical Office of Eastern Ghouta, which coordinates the medical centers across the area. When he practiced dentistry and provided health care in Eastern Ghouta during the conflict, he witnessed and treated the horrific effects of siege, daily bombings, and targeted attacks on medical facilities and workers.
The #Kurds in Afrin have many choices; including living in peace and prosperity in a place cleared from terrorists. The #YPG terrorists have no choice but be eliminated by Turkey and moderate Syrian opposition forces. twitter.com/jenanmoussa/st…
1/ Turkish operation in Afrin continues. Kurds have few options since no one will help:— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) January 22, 2018
1- YPG pulls out of Afrin, allow Turks in & save the city destruction &loss of lives.
2- Allow regime troops back in Afrin. Turkey will not fight regime &Russia.
3- Fight till the end.
