Urge Turkey to Stop Drone Sale
Freemuslim center for De-Radicalization & Extremism Prevention ( CDREP ) asks Baykar’s Defense Technologies, a Turkish based UAV and AI manufacturing company to prevent its Bayraktar TB drones to be used in countries like Yemen or any other country where drones are used to carry out a proxy war. Bayrakyar TB-2 is a medium altitude long endurance tactical unmanned aerial vehicle capable of conducting intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, as well as armed attack missions. Recent reports suggest the Turkish Drones were deployed in city of Marib in Yemen in experimental missions.
We ask all parties involved in Yemen’s war to halt all violence and air or ground attacks and revisit their strategies to settle their differences. Yemeni people have suffered greatly in this war and the future of children of Yemen is undermined by a war that has no future, has costed hundreds of millions of dollars and is not in any way beneficial to the stability and security of the region. We ask Turkey, especially management of Baykar Defense Technologies to promote a better use of their UAV and AI technology and come up with positive usage for world’s most advanced achievement. Technology advancement is suppose to serve people to reach goals unachievable before and not destroy lives of innocent women, men and children. Although these drones may have been intended for defensive purposes, but according to our sources, they are used for offensive purposes. Turkey can play a key role in stability of the region or become a contributor to its destruction and instability. Lack of security and safety in one country may lead to unstable environments for all countries in the region. Freemuslim Center for De-radicalization and Extremism Prevention strongly condemns any use of violence regardless of by who and where it is conducted.
