UN says no ethnic cleansing in northern Syria

The U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria released a new report denying the allegations that the Kurds have been involved in ethnic cleansing in northern Syria.

“Though allegations of ‘ethnic cleansing’ continued to be received during the period under review, the Commission found no evidence to substantiate claims that YPG [Kurdish People’s Protection Units] or SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces] ever targeted Arab communities on the basis of ethnicity, nor that YPG cantonal authorities systematically sought to change the demographic composition of territories under their control through the commission of violations directed against any particular ethnic group,” the UN said.
