There are already 800 more pro-Kurdish, feminist and left-wing civilians detained in Turkey in just 48 hours.
Meanwhile theTurkish state is receiving billions from European taxpayers in blackmail money to not to send refugees North.
And both the USA and Russia are wooing the dictator Erdogan as a strategic partner and customer in their insane capitalist expansion, To the extent that both give permission to invade Syria and to bomb and shell SDF and YPG/YPJ areas practising non ethnic, non religious and anti sexist direct democracy.. to replace them with factions of whatever crazed jihadi drug addicts they can find, as long as they are pro-Turkey.

President Erdogan can at least claim credit for bringing back the terms PURGES and POGROMS into daily use.
Purges because he has fired, exiled, murdered, imprisoned or tortured literally hundreds of thousands of his own citizens with little evidence beyond his own stalinist paranoia… see Erdogan vows to punish thought crimes.
And Pogroms because he gained absolute power by whipping up hate against the 18 million Kurdish minority and attacking them, killing thousands, reducing cities like Cizre to rubble (see POGROM, CURFEW, GENOCIDE IN CIZRE) and invading Iraq and Syria to kill Kurds and ”redeem the Turkish empire”..(see Turkey vows to Destroy inspiring Rojava Revolution. )These are straightforward nazi tactics.
Using refugees as blackmail is nothing new , nor is profiting by abusing them to work endless hours for hhardly any pay. Not for a politician whose own family controlled the supplies to ISIS and now other jihadi proxies who have caused such immeasurable human suffering.
