The tragedy unfolding in Afrin is only getting worse, as the TurkReich closes in on the city of Afrin, trapping almost a million people.
The coalition of Islamo-Fascists (which includes the TurkReich itself) is promising to not merely remove the Rojavan Kurds from the region, but to also murder them all.
Meanwhile, in the diplomatic halls of the West, we hear the faint chortle of “that’s bad” cries, but no effective action to stop this ongoing effort to ethnically cleanse Afrin.
While Erdogan’s TurkReich advances with their little Nazi blueprints in hand, the world looks on in much the same way it did as Hitler rose to power. While Erdogan attempts to murder a democracy, the West placates the murderous regime of a Turkish Fuhrer.
|Turkish Army Gains Major Ground in Campaign Against Kurds in Syrian North|
Turkey’s military and its rebel allies have encircled the northern Syrian town of Afrin, the Turkish armed forces said on Tuesday, a substantial advance in Turkey’s offensive against Kurdish fighters across its southern border.
Turkey launched its operation “Olive Branch” in northern Syria nearly two months ago to sweep the Syrian Kurdish YPG from the Turkish border. Turkey sees the YPG as a terrorist group and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
The Turkish offensive opened a new front in a multi-sided civil war now entering its eighth year, which has drawn in neighbours and global powers who have armed and assisted fighters on the ground.
The forces encircled Afrin and also captured “areas of critical importance” in the region as of Monday, the Turkish military said in a statement.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based organisation that reports on the war, said Turkish forces and their Syrian militia allies had encircled an estimated 700,000 people in Afrin and nearby areas.
