According to hospital staff in Avrin, more than 160 civilians have been killed between January 20, 2018 and February 12, 2018 due to  attacks by the Turkish army and  its associated Jihadist groups of the FSA against the people of Afrin,

[2. 3. 4]  From 5 to 7 February, the Turkish air forces did not carry out air strikes, although it intensified shelling by artillery. Many schools, centers of democratic self-management such as the Education, Trade and Agriculture Councils, as well as the Heyva Health Center Sister, mosques, cemeteries and hundreds of civil houses have become targets of artillery.

On February 8, the bombings of the Turkish air forces began again in a way even more tense and cruel, especially against civilians and infrastructure. Along with the attacks directly against civil settlements, the water purification plant in the town of Metina (Shera district), the central water station of the Jinderese district, one of the two bakeries main and main markets in the Rajo district and an olive factory production of oil were targeted by air strikes and bombings by the Turkish army and its allies.

The historical heritage such as the old Betal Aga Palace in Jeleme (Jinderese district) also suffered serious damage. The total number of schools damaged or destroyed reached 27 by the end of the week. In just two days in the Jindirese district, more than 200 houses were devastated by bombing and bombing of the Turkish army on 9 and 10 February.

Due to this situation, many people had to leave their homes or became homeless. Many families found refuge in old caves or basements. But the majority of the displaced population is taking refuge in the center of the city of Afrin.

During the last days, the center from the city of Afrin, which is exclusively a civil area, has also become a principal target of the Turkish aggressions. Almost every day, the center and its surroundings are being attacked by Turkish artillery or air attacks.

On February 9 in the Bilbile district again two entire families were murdered and buried under the ruins of their bombed houses. On 13 February, artillery attacks impacted near the Afrin hospital.

Civilian casualties are reported daily, displacement and struggle to survive without electricity or water. In villages in the region border areas that were invaded, locals and refugees were kidnapped, beaten, robbed and threatened by the Turkish army and its associated jihadist groups.

Feb. 16, 2018  The Long March arrived in Geneva demanding International intervention to stop the Turkish terror in Afrin and elsewhere.

Among the areas that have been under permanent attack are the Ezidi Baflune villages, Arab Weran and Omera in the district of Shera. Clashes continued in the districts of Rajo, Bilbile, Shera, Shiye and Jinderese, accompanied by Turkish air attacks and heavy artillery.

Fighting around the villages on the front lines continued day and night. According to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) since the beginning of the attacks against Afrin, so far 98 of their fighters lost their lives in defense of Efrin.

The death of 862 Turkish soldiers and jihadist members of the FSA was confirmed by the SDF. It has reported 668 bombings of Turkish warplanes and 16 attacks with helicopters. 2645 times the Afrin region was hit by tanks and heavy artillery bombardments. 517 direct confrontations occurred between the SDF and the Turkish army together with their  jihadi accomplices.

 [5] [6] Resistance of people in Afrin

Despite the difficult situation in which the Afrin people live, they do not give up. The solidarity and mutual aid have become the greatest weapons against the war in Turkey, a war that develops especially against civilians. The people in the center of the city have opened their homes to house other families, who were displaced due to the war.

Many people have donated blood to cover the needs of the injured. The Heyva Sor Kurda has distributed milk for the children and other aid to the victims of the war.

After the mobilizations of thousands of people who had come to Afrin from other regions North of Syria showing their solidarity on February 7, the people of Afrin continued to make appeals to the international community to take measures to stop the war of Turkish occupation.

On February 8, the Kongra Star women’s movement held a public event  in the city of Afrin in which they requested a global solidarity campaign: “Mujeres Alzaos For Afrin. “

[7] On February 13, thousands of women protested in the streets of the city of Afrin against the invasion of the Turkish state, while near them the Turkish army was still bombing the city.

On February 15, thousands of people from the Afrin canton went to Jinderese, who has been under intense attacks by the Turkish army and associated jihadist groups for 27 days to protest against the Turkish war against Afrin and the abduction of Abdullah Ocalan on February 15, 1999.

Solidarity with Afrin

Throughout the world, people have protested against the war of the Turkish state and its jihadist groups associates In all the cities of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria have continued the daily mass protests against the Turkish invasion.

 On February 10, a delegation of deputies and members of the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG, for his initials in English) in South Kurdistan / Iraq came to Afrin to get an idea of ​​the situation and demand political measures from governments and international organizations.


Turkey hits Kurds with toxic gas, 6 civilians injured – reports Turkish forces engaged in Operation Olive Branch against Kurdish militias in the northwest of Syria have used gas, Syrian state media SANA reports. At least six civilians have been hospitalized.


Returning from Afrin, the Head of the delegation and Prime Minister Eli Halo (PDK) appealed to the KRG, the UN and international aid organizations to support the people of Afrin. Calling the Kurdish unit Eli Halo declared: “I am convinced the people of Afrin will succeed, because they show a strong will and resistance. “

 [8] The different NGOs and the Heyva Sor Kurda have organized humanitarian aid campaigns for the Afrin people. Some medical supplies have already arrived at the Heyva Sor Kurda in Afrin. The campaigns continue in different countries as there is an urgent need, especially for medical equipment, medicines, child nutrition and milk. 

[9] Across Europe, Australia, in different Asian countries, Latin America and North America, the actions and solidarity meetings to stop the war in Afrin continued. They organized long marches in different European countries: since February 8, 200 internationalists march  from Luxembourg to Strasbourg.

 [10] Other long marches took place in Sweden and Switzerland with hundreds of participants Since February 12, a long march from Lausanne is heading towards representation of the UN in Geneva.

Following the call of Afrin’s women “Women rise to Afrin”, women in many European and Latin American countries organized local protests and sent messages of solidarity to the women who resisted in Afrin.

 [11] In Shakran prison in Turkey, political prisoners continue their hunger strike in shifts which began on February 5 in support of the Afrin resistance. In many countries, deputies, local and regional councils and NGOs asked the UN, national governments or the senator American John McCain to take urgent measures to stop the war in Turkey against Afrin, recognize the rights of the Kurdish people and guarantee a political solution to the crisis In Syria.

Some political parties have also criticized the participation of their own governments in this war (for example, the supply of arms to Turkey) and demanded sanctions against Turkey. 

Afrin ”terrorists” demonstrate for freedom of their leader Ocalan
[12] Statements and analysis

While the Turkish government could not achieve “a quick military victory” as they had announced, the government has been escalating day by day its policies of war and repression internal and external to the country, accompanied by openly fascist and nationalist approaches and rhetoric.

Any voice against the war (for example, on social networks) within Turkey is answered with detention, with censorship and oppression of the Turkish state. The fundamental democratic rights like freedom of expression and opinion have been abolished. Again, during the last week, hundreds of Turkish citizens were imprisoned for opposing the war in Afrin.

 [13] The plans of nationalist expansion of installing “a second Ottoman Empire” are no longer hidden, as made evident by Erdogan’s rhetoric and expressions, such as giving an “Ottoman slap” to the USA . What the Turkish President Erdogan is trying to achieve in Afrin are openly plans for  “ethnic cleansing”.

On the one hand, Turkey is blackmailing the EU with sending new waves of  refugees into Europe and with forecasts of IS attacks in European cities, if it does not conquer Afrin. On the other hand, the Turkish state has threatened the USA. if it does not withdraw from the Minbij area.

In this context, neither the government of the USA. neither the EU nor the UN have taken clear measures to stop the Turkish war against Afrin, which is violating international and humanitarian law.

The US only pointed out that the Turkish war against Afrin would slow down the military operation against the IS in Derazore, since the SDF would stop concentrating on a single war front.

In addition, there have been several discussions and special sessions in different parliaments during the last week, for example in the European Parliament. Unfortunately, the results of these discussions remained at a symbolic level, calling for a decrease in conflict and expressing sympathy with the people in Afrin. So far, there is a lack of concrete measures to stop the war and genocide in Afrin.

Meanwhile the double game of current state policies again becomes obvious with the new coalition agreement of the German government, declaring its “special interest in good relations with Turkey”. The voices of the German public that demanded the end of arms exports to Turkey were ignored.

Turkey has over 2000 tanks

The arms trade-like the new agreements between the German company Rheinmetall  (manufacturer of tanks and weapons) and its associated Turkish company BMC- have been approved by the German government. In this way, the German tank Leopard 2 can be updated and used by the Turkish army attacking civilians in Afrin. 

[14] While economic and hegemonic interests dominate political decisions and actions, a political solution for Afrin in accordance with international human rights and ethical human laws seems to be difficult.

Afrin City. an oasis of peace..  now suffering random bombing by Turkey


original en español

Los desarrollos de la última semana (8 al 15 de febrero) en Afrin

Con la derrota del EI en Siria y especialmente después de la liberación de Raqqa en octubre de 2017, el estado turco intensificó sus amenazas y ataques contra la Federación Democrática del Norte de Siria. En este contexto, la guerra de invasión turca contra Afrin comenzó el 20 de enero de 2018 violando el derecho internacional y la soberanía de su país vecino. El ejército turco ha lanzado esta guerra en cooperación con grupos yihadistas de las filas de la FSA. Muchos de ellos son ex miembros de Al-Qaeda o EI.

[1]Guerra y Situación Humanitaria

Desde el comienzo de la guerra, quien más sufrió fue la población civil de Afrin: kurdos, árabes, turcomanos, armenios, ezidis, alauitas, cristianos y musulmanes. Según el personal del hospital Avrin, entre el 20 de enero de 2018 y el 12 de febrero de 2018 debido a los ataques del ejército Turco y sus grupos yihadistas asociados del FSA contra el pueblo de Afrin, más de 160 civiles murieron y 480 resultaron heridos, incluidos niños, mujeres y las personas de edad avanzada.

 

[2] [3] [4]Del 5 al 7 de febrero, las fuerzas aéreas turcas no llevaron a cabo ataques aéreos, aunque se intensificaron los bombardeos por artillería. Muchas escuelas, centros de autogestión democrática como las Consejos de Educación, Comercio y Agricultura, así como el Centro de Salud de Heyva Sor, mezquitas, cementerios y cientos de casas civiles se han convertido en objetivos de la artillería turca.

El 8 de febrero, los bombardeos de las fuerzas aéreas turcas comenzaron de nuevo de una manera aún más tensa y cruel, especialmente contra civiles y la infraestructura. Junto con los ataques directos contra asentamientos civiles, la planta de purificación de agua en el pueblo de Metina (distrito de Shera), la estación central de agua del distrito de Jinderese, una de las dos panaderías principales y los principales mercados en el distrito Rajo y una fábrica de aceitunas la producción de petróleo fueron blanco de ataques aéreos y bombardeos del ejército turco y sus aliados.

El patrimonio histórico como el antiguo Palacio de Betal Aga en Jeleme (distrito de Jinderese) también ha sufrido graves daños. El número total de escuelas dañadas o destruidas llegó a 27 para el final de la semana. En solo dos días en el distrito de Jindirese, más de 200 casas fueron devastadas por bombardeos y bombardeos del ejército turco los días 9 y 10 de febrero.

Debido a esta situación, muchas personas tuvieron que abandonar sus hogares o quedaron sin hogar. Muchas familias encontraron refugio en viejas cuevas o sótanos. Pero la mayoría de la población

desplazada se está refugiando en el centro de la ciudad de Afrin. Durante los últimos días, el centro de la ciudad de Afrin, que es exclusivamente un área civil,también se ha convertido en un objetivo principal de las agresiones turcas. Casi todos los días, el centro y sus alrededores están siendo atacados por artillería turca o ataques aéreos.

El 9 de febrero en el distrito de Bilbile otra vez dos familias enteras fueron asesinadas y enterradas bajo las ruinas de sus casas bombardeadas. El 13 de febrero, los ataques de artillería impactaron cerca del hospital de Afrin. Se notifican bajas civiles a diario, desplazamientos y lucha por sobrevivir sin electricidad o agua.

En aldeas de la región fronteriza que fueron invadidas, locales y refugiados fueron secuestrados, golpeados, robados y amenazados por el ejército turco y sus grupos yihadistas asociados.

Entre las áreas que han estado bajo ataques permanentes se encuentran los aldeas Ezidi Baflune, Arab Weran y Omera en el distrito de Shera. Continuaron los enfrentamientos en los distritos de Rajo, Bilbile, Shera, Shiye y Jinderese, acompañados por ataques aéreos turcos y artillería pesada.

Las peleas en los alrededores de las aldeas en las líneas de frente continuaban día y noche. Según las Fuerzas Democráticas Sirias (SDF , por sus iniciales en inglés) desde que comenzaron los ataques contra Afrin, hasta el momento 98 de sus combatientes perdieron sus vidas en la defensa de Efrin.

La muerte de 862 soldados turcos y miembros yihadistas de la FSA fue confirmada por el SDF. Se informó de 668 bombardeos de aviones de guerra turcos y 16 ataques con helicópteros. 2645 veces la región Afrin fue alcanzada por tanques y bombardeos de artillería pesada. 517 confrontaciones directas ocurrieron entre el SDF y el ejército turco junto con sus cómplices yihadistas.

Además, dos helicópteros turcos y dos UAV (drones) fueron derribados. 51 vehículos blindados del ejército turco fueron destruidos y 15 más dañados por fuerzas de SDF.

   [5][6]Resistencia de las personas en Afrin

A pesar de la difícil situación en la que vive la gente de Afrin, no se dan por vencidos. La solidaridad y la ayuda mutua se han convertido en las mayores armas contra la guerra de Turquía, una guerra que se desarrolla especialmente contra civiles. La gente en el centro de la ciudad ha abierto sus hogares para albergar a otras familias, que fueron desplazadas debido a la guerra.

Muchas personas han donado sangre para cubrir las necesidades de los heridos. La Heyva Sor Kurda ha distribuido leche para los niños y otras ayudas a las víctimas de la guerra.

Después de las movilizaciones de miles de personas que habían venido a Afrin desde otras regiones del Norte de Siria mostrando su solidaridad el 7 de febrero, el pueblo de Afrin continuó haciendo llamamientos a la comunidad internacional para que se tomen medidas que detengan la guerra de ocupación Turca.

El 8 de febrero, el movimiento de mujeres Kongra Star celebró una declaración pública en la ciudad de Afrin en la que pedía una campaña de solidaridad mundial: “Mujeres AlzaosPor Afrin”.

[7] El 13 de febrero, miles de mujeres protestaron en las calles de la ciudad de Afrin contra la invasión del estado Turco, mientras que cerca de ellas el ejército turco seguía bombardeando la ciudad.

El 15 de febrero, miles de personas del cantón de Afrin fueron a Jinderese, que ha estado bajo intensos ataques del ejército Turco y de grupos yihadistas asociados durante 27 días para protestaro contra la guerra de Turquía contra Afrin y el secuestro de Abdullah Ocalan el 15 de febrero de 1999.

The local YPG militia post a video of the destruction of another invading Turkish Tank. Turkey has the 2nd army in Nato with 2000 tanks and has been given a free hand by Russia for round the clock aerial bombing.
Solidaridad con Afrin

En todo el mundo, la gente ha protestado contra la guerra del estado turco y sus grupos yihadistas asociados. En todas las ciudades de la Federación Democrática del Norte de Siria han continuado las protestas masivas diarias contra la invasión Turca.

El 10 de febrero, una delegación de diputados y miembros del Gobierno Regional Kurdo (KRG, por sus iniciales en inglés) en Kurdistán del Sur/Irak vino a Afrin para hacerse una idea de la situación y exigir medidas políticas por parte de gobiernos y organismos internacionales.

Volviendo de Afrin, el jefe de la delegación y Primer Ministro Eli Halo (PDK) hizo un llamamiento al KRG, a la ONU y a las organizaciones de ayuda internacional para que apoyem al pueblo de Afrin. Llamando a la unidad kurda Eli Halo declaró: “Estoy convencido de el pueblo de Afrin tendrá éxito, porque muestra una voluntad y resistencia muy fuertes”.

[8] Las diferentes ONG y la Heyva Sor Kurda han organizado campañas de ayuda humanitaria para las personas de Afrin. Algunos suministros médicos ya llegaron a la Heyva Sor Kurda en Afrin. Las campañas continúan en diferentes países dado que existe una necesidad imperiosa, especialmente de equipos médicos, medicamentos, nutrición infantil y leche.

[9] En toda Europa, Australia, en diferentes países asiáticos, América Latina y América del Norte, las acciones y reuniones de solidaridad para detener la guerra en Afrin continuaron. Se organizaron largas marchas en diferentes países europeos: desde el 8 de febrero, 200 internacionalistas marchan desde Luxemburgo a Estrasburgo.

[10] Otras marchas largas tuvieron lugar en Suecia y Suiza con cientos de participantes. Desde el 12 de febrero, una larga marcha desde Lausana se dirige hacia la representación de la ONU en Ginebra. Siguiendo el llamado de las mujeres de Afrin “Las mujeres se alzan para Afrin”, mujeres en muchos países de Europa y América Latina organizaron protestas locales y enviaron mensajes de solidaridad a las mujeres que resistían en Afrin.

[11] En la prisión de Shakran en Turquía, los presos políticos continúan su huelga de hambre por turnos que comenzó el 5 de febrero en apoyo de la resistencia de Afrin. En muchos países, los diputados, consejos locales y regionales y ONG pidieron a la ONU, a los gobiernos nacionales o al senador estadounidense John McCain que adoptaran medidas urgentes para detener la guerra de Turquía contra Afrin, reconocer los derechos del pueblo kurdo y garantizar una solución política a la crisis en Siria.

Algunos partidos políticos también han criticado la participación de sus propios gobiernos en esta guerra (por ejemplo, el suministro de armas a Turquía) y exigieron sanciones contra Turquía.

[12]Declaraciones y análisis

Si bien el gobierno turco no pudo alcanzar “una victoria militar rápida” tal como habían anunciado, el gobierno ha estado escalando día a día sus políticas de guerra y represión internas y externas al país, acompañadas de enfoques y retórica abiertamente fascistas y nacionalistas.

Ante cualquier voz en contra de la guerra (por ejemplo, en las redes sociales) dentro de Turquía se responde con la detención, con la censura y la opresión del estado Turco. Los derechos democráticos fundamentales como la libertad de expresión y opinión han sido abolidos. Nuevamente, durante la última semana, cientos de ciudadanos turcos fueron encarcelados por oponerse a la guerra en Afrin.

[13]   Los planes

de expansión nacionalista de instalar “un segundo Imperio Otomano” ya no están ocultos, como se hizo evidente por la retórica y las expresiones de Erdogan, como dar una “bofetada otomana” a los EE. UU. Lo que el presidente de Turquía Erdogan está tratando de lograr en Afrin son los planes abiertos de “limpieza ética”.

Por un lado, Turquía está chantajeando a la UE con nuevas oleadas de refugiados hacia Europa y con pronósticos de ataques de EI en las metrópolis europeas, si no conquistara Afrin. Por otro lado, el estado Turco amenaza a los EUA. para que se retiren de la línea Minbij.

En este contexto, ni el gobierno de los EUA. ni la UE ni la ONU han tomado medidas claras para detener la guerra de Turquía contra Afrin, que está violando el derecho internacional y humanitario.

EUA solo señaló que la guerra Turca contra Afrin ralentizaría la operación militar contra el EI en Derazore, ya que las SDF dejarían de concentrarse en un solo frente de guerra. Además, ha habido varias discusiones y sesiones especiales en diferentes parlamentos durante la última semana, por ejemplo en el Parlamento Europeo.

Desafortunadamente, los resultados de estas discusiones se quedaron en un nivel simbólico, llamando a una disminución del conflicto y expresando simpatía con la gente en Afrin. Hasta ahora, faltan medidas concretas para detener la guerra y el genocidio en Afrin.

Mientras tanto el doble juego de las actuales políticas estatales vuelve a ser obvio también con el nuevo acuerdo de coalición del gobierno alemán, declarando su “especial interés en las buenas relaciones con Turquía”. Las voces de la opinión pública alemana que exigían el fin de las exportaciones de armas a Turquía fueron ignoradas.

El comercio de armas -como los nuevos acuerdos entre la empresa alemana Rheinmetall (fabricante de tanques y armas) y su su compañía asociada turca BMC- han sido aprovados por el gobierno alemán. De este modo, el tanque alemán Leopard 2 puede ser actualizado y utilizado por el ejército turco atacando a civiles en Afrin.

[14] Mientras los intereses económicos y hegemónicos dominen las decisiones y acciones políticas, una solución política para Afrin de acuerdo con las leyes internacionales de derechos humanos y la ética humana parece ser difícil.
