BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – A new group in the Afrin region of northwest Aleppo issued a stern warning to the refugees from the East Ghouta about staying in this area.

The group calls themselves the “Afrin Hawks” – they are rumored to be a sleeper cell militia that is comprised of fighters from the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

According to the their statement, they demand that all East Ghouta refugees leave Afrin or face death at the hands of the Afrin Hawks.

The group added that they will also be targeting both women and children.

“The group added that they will also be targeting both women and children” is a clear indication that they are Turkish, in which case expect some women and children to be murdered while Turkey is having its “talks” with the Americans.

They could just as easily be friends of Israel and the US who have a long history of murdering women and children.

These statements could obviously be kurdish and/or turkish of origin.
As seen in 1915, they both work hand in hand when it’s about slaugtering innocents and helpless.
The male and female Ghouta-exiles are no innocent victims, by the way.
But children in any way, are unwritten pages to the future and should be handled with special care and spared from all cruelty in education and living-circumstances!

Bestest!

It does not make any sense that turkey would be behind it fully knowing that the refugees from Ghouta are the terrorists and their families that are being supported by Turkey who fight the YPG, and the SAA. You can delude yourself as much as you want, but you can’t delude others, I mean your claim is just plain illogical, and stupid

Erdogan, the yanks and the Zionists support the Afrin Hawks. They want to drive the people back to Ghouta.

p.s. The YPG have given up since their local contacts and sources have been ethnically cleansed.

@Abdallah Sheikh, the rush for the spoils among that Erdogan’s ghazi factions is the reason for this spat.

“Afrin Hawkes”……LOL – who (in the World) would make a name up that ?

Maybe they are part of Operation “We are the Yanks, resistance is futile”.

Dumb Bastards.

Most likely the Afrin Hawks are Erdogan’s henchmen that want to keep their spoils.
