Turkish invasion of Syrian Kurds: ISIS terrorists escaping, 400+ killed, 300,000 people displaced
Turkey’s week-old invasion against Kurdish areas of northeastern Syria has displaced more than 300,000 people, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the London-based war monitor said that the jump in the number of people forced to flee was due to a fresh wave of displacement over the past few days from areas around Tal Abyad and Kobane and in Hasakeh province.
Most displaced people tried to move in with relatives in safer areas, some were sleeping rough in orchards and others in some of the 40 schools that have been turned into emergency shelters, Abdel Rahman said.
Turkey and its jihadist proxies in Syria invaded the Kurdish-controlled areas on October 9, after US troops pulled back from the border and started withdrawing from the northeast altogether.
Betrayed by the US, Syria’s Kurds are battling to hold off the invasion as ISIS terrorists escape from Kurdish prisons.
A death toll of more than 400 Kurds, airstrikes, shelling and horrific executions by Turkish soldiers and Turkey-backed Muslim terrorists, deepened fears of a humanitarian crisis and ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish people, who fought alongside US troops in the battle against ISIS.
Yesterday, the US military bombed the Syrian headquarters of the American campaign to battle ISIS, which included warehouses used to train and equip Kurdish troops, after rapidly pulling Americans from the base.
Horrible videos emerged last week from northern Syria of Turkey-proxy Muslim terrorists executing SDF Kurdish soldiers who fought alongside US troops.
Hervin Khalaf, a female Kurdish politician secretary-general of the Future Syria Party was raped and stoned to death when Turkish soldiers and their Muslim jihadist allies murdered nine civilians in an ambush on the road.
President Trump has ordered a withdrawal of virtually all US forces from northern Syria after days of assurances from the Pentagon that the United States was not “abandoning” its partners in the campaign against ISIS.
“They trusted us and we broke that trust,” one U.S. Army officer who fought alongside the Kurds in northern Syria said last week “It’s a stain on the American conscience.”
