BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – On Friday, Turkish forces perpetrated nothing short of a massacre in the city of Afrin when army artillery and air force jets indiscriminately shelled and bombed residential areas to an intensity not yet seen during Ankara’s Olive Branch operation.

According to sources, Turkish shelling and airstrikes killed at least 45 five civilians – among the dead were sixteen children and fourteen women. One Turkish bomb reportedly struck Afrin’s main hospital leaving some nine people dead.

According the reports, Turkish forces are deliberately attacking random civilian targets across Afrin in a bid to scare people into leaving the city.

Amid all this, thousands of civilians refuse to leave their homes in Afrin saying that they would rather die than leave anything to ‘Turkish invaders.’

SAA was withdrawn and did not protect Kurds against the Jihadi. Only Arab centres were protected. So Syria betrayed them first. It was only a couple of years ago.
& Gentlemen calm down! Re-read the old texts else, please, take Your Alzheimer medication. Tongue out.

p.s. Which is no excuse to betray Syria now that the Kurds have e.g. got Syrian passports and Syria has sufficient resources and the will to protect the Kurds also.

It does not matter why the SAA abandoned them. The Kurds were in much more danger because they were no Arabs and the Juahdi were after them. The SAA did not evacuate them and did not fight for them. Period!

So they were betrayed first.

BTW. Do not call me a liar. You give justification why they were abandoned Yourself and claim at the same time they were not abandoned to the mercy of the Shitlamists?

I call Your justification an lame excuse.

p.s. Admit that or take Your Alzheimer pills.

The SEE offered to help IF they lay down their weapons AND hand over the control of the area. The rats refused because they wanted to create Royava. IE: wanted Syrians to die for them so that they can stab the same Syrians in the back. Now it will cost countless Syrian lives to fight back the area, for the turks won’t just give it back. Or it will be lost forever. These rats are traitors, no sympathy for them. They should kiss the common backside of SAA allowing them to escape – as the rats are leaving the sinking… Read more »

Stop swearing at me. The Kurdish wish for a state comes from Turkish and Arab injustice and cultural genocide attempts. How do You feel when Your country forbids the language of Your ancestors? You need Your own state or a Federation.

Let me remind You that Assyrians, Kurds and Armenians were there long before the Arab speakers and the f*****g Turks arrived. Arabs and Turks are newcomers in the historical view and cultural imperialists.

You say “STFU”. You better not tell me that. I know what I am writing. And we do not censor here.

The traditional kurdish land is mostly occupied by turkey, small part by Iran, Iraq and Syria in the east.
Afrin is not part of it even if many kurds live there.
One could sympathise with the claim to THAT piece of land. NOT to Afrin. The yanks promised them earth and heaven to weaken Assad. The went for it and carried out a land-grab. With that they lost the support of decent people. They become traitors.

The silence from the UN will be deafening. There will be no admonition aimed at Turkey, despite proof. Strange how only Assad and Putin can commit war crimes. I’m sure the Kurdish people are thanking their leaders for their decision to rebuff Syria and take on Turkey.

Before Vienna in Austria and well into Germany the Turks and their Ghazi committed their war crimes in 1529. But at that time all the area was in the Sacrum Romanum Imperium of the West Germanic nations. That empire split up by treaty in 1648 and later after 1812 some more.

“Pro-Alawi”? This site is pro-Syria.
Yours is just a projection of your sectarian-infected mind.
Syria, its government and its Army are multi-ethnic and multi-religious (as in “secular”). Denying this means having no credibility in defining what others are or aren’t.
(Short story: the above statement is actually an elongated “STFU!”)
