Opposition in Syria’s Afrin region will establish a local parliament with 30 representatives from Kurdish, Alevi, Arab and Ezidi communities, according to a representative of the opposition Tuesday.

Hasan Sindi from the opposition in Afrin is coordinating a “liberation congress” for the region from southeastern Turkey’s Gaziantep province.

This congress held its first session Sunday.

Around 100 people from Afrin, Kurds, Arabs, Alevis and Ezidis communities, who had escaped the cruelty of YPG/PKK terrorists, had attended the congress, which discussed rebuilding of the region and how to ensure local residents return to their homes.

The congress also took several decisions such as providing peace and security in Afrin and nearby villages; respecting all religions and sects, and handing over all administration of city and districts to community representatives.

Sindi said that Turkey had carried out precision strikes so that civilians would not get hurt during Operation Olive Branch in Afrin.

He said he hoped Afrin residents would return to their homes and live there peacefully.

"We have ended the congress and we will start our work.

“We will go to Afrin and establish the parliament. In this parliament, there are representatives of Kurdish, Alevi, Arab and Ezidi communities.

“We want to form a police force for Afrin…Free Syrian Army [FSA] will stay in Afrin for a month…," he said.

Sindi said Afrin would be developed again with Turkey’s support.
