The report below on the women’s revolution in Manbij was written before their betrayal by the USA. The Trump/Erdogan ‘roadmap’ plans to ‘hand over’ to the FSA jihadist terrorist mercenaries sponsored by Turkey the cities of Manbij, Raqqa the ISIS capital and other areas where ISIS was heroically expelled despite heavy losses by the SDF, which includes the YPG/YPJ .
The agreement says that Turkey and the US will ”jointly guarantee security”. It looks like the city of Manbij, liberated from IS terror after a long and bloody fight, the first and shining example of the revolutionary ideals of Rojava applied to a multi ethnic area, will be attacked by Erdogan’s hired jihadi FSA, with US consent.
After liberation a new Manbij Council was set up, with women and all races and religions fairly represented, and it has prospered and gained popularity despite a near total blockade by Turkey. The Kurdish YPG/YPJ withdrew already in 2016 leaving security to the new Manbij Military Council, now they have also withdrawn their ‘advisors’ from that council, leaving Turkey no excuse for a direct attack.)
The Turkish occupying forces, with Syrian auxiliary mercenaries, have advanced to the city of Afrîn.
Their air forces, thousands of tanks and heavy artillery from all sides continue to attack with impunity Syrian territory without any opposition from the government of Àssad, a necessary collaborator in the delivery of their own territory, and Russia, a direct accomplice.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has confirmed that Erdogan’s forces are at the entrance to the city.
Erdogan has already announced an ethnic cleansing throughout the area in order to expel the native population and replace it with Arabs and Turkmans currently refugees in Turkey.
The Turkish forces have advanced northward by forcing the Kurdish militias to retreat to prevent the only evacuation being cut off, on the south, into Aleppo.
Sunday saw dozens of demonstrations across Europe demanding an end to Turkey’s war crimes, as NATO jets bombed Afrin’s suburbs where hundreds of thousands of refugees from their invasion have fled. There is little water as Turkey bombed the main reservoir and pumpìng stations.
At least one area has ‘human shields’ in the form of volunteers from Europe ( they were not hit but the bombing continues), and convoys of demonstrators and SDF military reinforcements are still arriving through Syria.
The defending militias have no air force, tanks or heavy artillery.
This is the message that Jacopo, editor of the Infoaut.org portal being based in the Afrin canton since the beginning of the Turkish-Jihadi aggression, delivered to us a short while ago. An urgent call to mobilize and break the silence in front of the worsening of the situation in Afrin.
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
#DefendAfrin: Urgent call for mobilization
In the latest hours the situation in Afrin became more critical: the invading Turkish army and its allied Jihadi gangs closed in on the city from several sides, in particular from the Shera axis. They are at a 2,5 km distance and directly threaten the city.
The situation inside Afrin is the one still ongoing in these days, then high density of people, many refugees from the villages that found here shelter from war and bombings, lack of water – because, when Jihadis and the Turkish army captured the Meidanki dam, they cut the supply and bombed the pumping stations in other villages. There is also lack of some basic necessities.
Now the concrete risk is that in the next hours there would be an increasingly critical situation and that they would attack the city; even now there are artillery and aerial shellings in the peripheral areas of the city.
The Tev Dem called for a general mobilization, an uprising in every place and square in the world in order to defend Afrin, to stop the ethnic cleansing project that Erdogan and the Jihadi want to implement on Afrin’s populace, to ask for a no fly zone to stop the aerial bombings, that are also the ones producing a massive number of civilian casualties – if they were to further intensify and arrive to the downtown, they will surely perpetrate a massacre.
These actions are already taking place in many European cities, and in Bashur, too.
What has to be done now is to break the silence of the international community, that is actually conniving with this plan; this is what is asked to be done to all the peoples of the world in order to support Afrin and its populace, to support the revolution in Northern Syria, and then the hope and the example of the revolution of our century for a free and democratic society where many different peoples can live together, also representing a proposal of peace for Syria.
An uprising to defend Afrin, but also to defend a hope for the whole mankind.
Les forces ocupants turques, amb mercenaris auxiliars sirians, han avançat sobre la ciutat d’Efrîn. Les seves forces aèries continuen atacant impunement territori sirià sense cap oposició per part del govern d’Àssad, col·laborador necessari en l’entrega del seu propi territori, i de Rússia, còmplice directe. L’Observatori Sirià pels Drets Humans han confirmat que les forces d’Erdogan són a l’entrada de la ciutat.
Erdogan ja ha anunciat una neteja ètnica a tot el cantó per tal d’expulsar la població autòctona i substituir-la per àrabs i turcmans actualment refugiats a Turquia.
Les forces turques han avançat pel nord obligant a les milicies kurdes a replegar-se per evitar que quedés tallada l’única d’evacuació, pel sud, cap a Alep.
It was in 2006 when the president of the Spanish government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and the then Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan co-sponsored an initiative of preventive diplomacy aimed at reducing tensions between the West and the Islamic world and fighting against international terrorism for others Roads that were not the military.
The Alliance of Civilizations was born with the support of the United Nations and the interest and approval of most (military) world powers. Turkey became the third largest trading partner in Spain and the third largest importer of Spanish weapons, behind Thailand and the United States. Since the nineties, the Spanish State has supplied Turkey with military transport aircraft through the company Construcciones Aeronáuticas (CASA), F-100 military frigates through Bazán (Navantia), artillery equipment from Santa Bárbara Systems and electronic war material of Indra.

Kurdish forces heading to Raqqa frontline
In a statement via Telegram seen by KQ.com, the SDF, which recently launched the Wrath of Euphrates operation to liberate Raqqa from the IS, said it had told the anti-IS International Coalition it will halt its campaign on Raqqa and move its forces, which number 40,000, to Manbij if it does not stop the Turkish army’s attacks on liberated areas in and around Manbij in northern Syria.
Turkey and Free Syrian Army groups backed by Ankara have been attacking areas north of Manbij for the past two days.

‘Turkey has blocked access to the WikiLeaks website, the telecoms watchdog has said, after nearly 300,000 emails from president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) were put online as Ankara grapples with the aftermath of a failed military coup.
The emails date from 2010 to 6 July this year. Obtained before the attempted coup, the date of their publication was brought forward “in response to the government’s post-coup purges”, WikiLeaks said on its website, adding that the source of the emails was not connected to the coup plotters or to a rival political party or state.
