We repeat our promise here once more and say that we will continue our struggle until all the persecuted peoples are free.”

And in the end, he was martyred in this path.”

YPG fighter and YPG Press Bureau Member Firaz Dağ had been martyred while following the war in Raqqa on September 26.

A ceremony for Dağ and 3 YPG fighters was held two days ago in the Martyr Xebat Martyrs Cemetery in Dêrik, Qamishlo Canton. Today, dozens of YPG and YPJ fighters bid farewell to Firaz Dağ from the Semalka Border Gate. Firaz Dağ will be taken to Bashurê (Southern) Kurdistan and then to British capital London where his family lives, and he will be buried there.

YPG/YPJ fighters held a military ceremony before sending their comrade off. In the speeches given there by his comrades, Firaz Dağ’s role in the press and his efforts were pointed out and the fighters stressed that they will be loyal to his memory.

Mehmet Aksoy (Firaz Dağ) was born in a small village in the Elbistan district of Maraş in Bakurê (Northern) Kurdistan. He immigrated to the UK as a child along with his family.

When several YPG Press Bureau members lost their lives in an aerial attack by the invading, fascist and colonialist Turkish army on the Qereçox Mountain in Dêrik, Firaz Dağ decided to go to Rojava to fill the void that had been created and to follow the path of the martyred journalists.

Firaz Dağ was a YPG fighter known for his efforts in the press and his sacrifices.
