Greece: Kurds in Athens protest in solidarity with the people of Afrin

18 January 2018

Hundreds of Kurds marched through the streets of Athens on Thursday, denouncing to Turkey’s plans to bombard the Kurdish-held region of Afrin in northern Syria.

From daily News Line in Britain about Syria:

Friday, 23 February 2018

ON WEDNESDAY more civilians were killed or injured and material damage caused to the citizens’ houses and public facilities in Afrin city and its villages in the countryside of Aleppo because of the aggression waged on the area by the forces of the Turkish regime and its mercenaries.

SANA’s reporter said on Wednesday that the forces of the Turkish regime and its mercenaries bombarded and fired rockets at the residential neighbourhoods of Afrin city, injuring one family, which includes the father and his four children, in al-Ashrafiyeh neighbourhood.The injured people were admitted to Afrin hospital, according to the reporter.

The reporter added that the Turkish regime continued targeting with different types of weapons the houses, farms, and infrastructure in the villages and towns of Afrin area, causing huge damage to them.

On Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of popular forces from the National Defence Forces (NDF) supporting the government in Damascus began entering the Kurdish-held region of Afrin to defend the Syrian Kurds against Turkey’s offensive. Turkish state news agency Anadolu said Turkey’s army fired ‘warning shots’ at the Syrian popular forces.

The Turkish regime has been launching a barbaric aggression on Afrin area for 33 days, using different types of weapons and shells, including chlorine gas, leaving more than 630 civilians dead or injured, mostly women and children, in addition to destroying a number of bread production facilities, water pumping stations, schools, a train station, and historical landmarks displacing thousands of civilians in the process. …

More than a dozen civilians lost their lives when the US-led coalition, purportedly fighting the Daesh [ISIS] Takfiri terrorist group, carried out a series of aerial assaults in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr. Local sources told Syria’s official news agency SANA that 16 people, including 9 women, were killed in the US-led aerial attacks against residential buildings in al-Bahra village on Tuesday afternoon.

The sources noted that the death toll is expected to rise as some people had been critically wounded in the airstrikes. The London-based Airwars organisation, which tracks civilian deaths in US-led airstrikes, reported earlier this year that a total of at least 5,961 civilians had been killed as a result of the attacks in Iraq and Syria.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on November 23 last year that 2,759 civilians, including 644 minors and 470 women, had been killed in US-led aerial attacks against civilian areas in Syria over the past 38 months.

The monitoring group added that the US-led air raids had claimed the lives of 98 people, including four children and as many women, between October 23 and November 23 last year.

The SOHR went on to say that the civilian fatalities had been mostly recorded in the northern provinces of Hasakah, Raqqa, Aleppo and Idlib in addition to the eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorisation from the Damascus government or a UN mandate. The military alliance has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of achieving its declared goal of destroying Daesh.

Thousands of Syrians buried in the rubble six months after US destruction of Raqqa: here.

Britain must ‘come clean over its role in the Raqqa carnage,’ Amnesty International demands. A report by the human rights organisation claims the US-led coalition’s bombing of the former Isis stronghold appears ‘disproportionate, indiscriminate, unlawful, and potential war crimes’: here.

Russia, Syria and the Kurds ‘agree resistance’ to Turkish invasion of Afrin: here.

A US air strike in Syria’s eastern Deir Ezzor province killed at least 25 civilians Monday, the majority of them women and children. The American bombing raid, which struck the settlement of Dahra Alounik, was reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitoring group that is hostile to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad: here.

  2. TURKEY: A court sentenced three academics yesterday to jail for signing a peace petition, claiming that it counted as “terror propaganda.”

    But the terms were revised by the judge to five years of probation because of the academics’ good behaviour and clean criminal records.

    The three were among 1,128 academics who signed a petition in January 2016 urging an end to the government’s bloody crackdown on Kurds in the south-east.
