“My name is Hussein Abida, and I’m 50 years old. I live in Tall Tamr in the area of conflict between the Kurdish forces, the Turkish army, and its Islamic proxies. Even though our village is semi-continuously facing bombardment from Turkish forces, my family and I have not left our home and will not leave. Leaving your village and home is difficult; I can stay in the village and bear the bombardment, but I won’t go to the camps and live in a tent. The bomb fragments are on the roads of the village all the time. I pray every day for god to bring peace and security to Rojava and Syria and for the war to end.”
