On Sunday, January 17, teachers of Hajin city in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside released a statement rejecting the forced conscription campaign launched by the Syrian democratic forces (SDF) against teachers.
According to the statement, which came under the hashtag “Teachers not Recruits”, teachers of Hajin city expressed their complete rejection of recruiting teachers in the military field, affirming that they serve only the educational process. They held the Education Authority in Deir Ezzor Civil Council, the Sheikh of Hajin area, and the dignitaries of the region, fully responsible unless the decision to recruit teachers is cancelled.
The teachers of Hajin threatened to organize protests to get their voice heard by decision makers in order to stop the recruitment of teachers.
About 20 days ago, the SDF instructed teachers, whose date of birth is between 1990 and 2002, in educational complexes and schools of Deir Ezzor to join military service.
