- Russian republic
From 21/01/2018 raids have been carried out by the Turkish army on the Kurdish canton of Afrin in northern Syria These attacks, are curried out in daily bases . (according to human rights organizations the raids and bombardment cost the lives of more than 100 civilians, including more than 25 children and minors. Dozens of school buildings, hospitals, historic buildings were razed and destroyed to the ground. according to some vedios which released recently the Turkish army committed a crime against humanity.
About one million people live in the Afrin region. There is no danger to the Turkish population from there. The Kurdish enclave Afrin has not yet been hit by the war and houses hundreds of thousands of refugees within Syria.
In the past, the self-governing canton of Afrin became the refuge of half a million refugees from other parts of Syria. An attack by Turkey would lead to massacres of the civilian population, renewed flight and expulsion. For a long time, Afrin has suffered a blockade of Turkey, which has built a wall along the borders of the canton. The Turkish army and al-Qaeda-affiliated mercenary troops from the Turkish occupation zones in Syria regularly bombard Afrin.
The women and men of the Kurdish administration there are a bulwark against the ISIS They defeated the jihadist terror in Kobanê and released the Syrian city of Raqqa (the capital of ISIS) from the terror caliphate. They should be rewarded and supported by the international community!
We on behalf of the Kurdocide Watch - CHAK (a Kurdish human rights organization) condemn the war of Turkey and the Islamist terrorist militias under the banner of the FSA. If Turkey destroys the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in Syria, then another war in Syria threatens numerous human rights crimes.
In the Turkish invasion, we even fear ethnic cleansing and massacres of the Kurds and all other Afrin residents by the Turkish army and its Islamic allied militias.
We ask for support of our demands, which are:
- Immediate stop of the attacks on the enclave of Afrin and the whole of northern Syria
- Immediate withdrawal of the Turkish army and all its Islamist mercenary militias.
- Syria needs peace, solidarity and territorial integrity - no war!
- The Kurdish question in Syria and Turkey should be solved politically and peacefully!
