DEMOCRATIC FEDERATION OF NORTH SYRIA

Looting by occupation forces is ongoing in Afrin

A video shows a Turkish-backed armed group, looting the furniture of a civilian’s house in Mahmoudiya neighborhood in the city of Afrin.

The video was filmed by an activist on April 15, 2018, and could not be published earlier, shows a Turkish-backed armed group looting a house of a Kurdish citizen in Afrin. The sounds of celebrating songs can be heard from their vehicles.

Looting operations by Turkey and its affiliate armed gangs are ongoing in Afrin Region. The gangs loot anything falls under their sight during the inhumane operations.

The locals are frightened of disclosing those inhumane violations practiced against them because of the terrorist methods followed by the occupiers, and the fear of revenge.

Erdogan has declared war on Syrian Kurdish population.

NATO’s member, Turkey, is invading Afrin, a democratically self-governed region in North Syria.

The canton of Afrin has been the most secure and safe region in Syria for its inhabitants despite the embargo. It is democratically governed by locally-elected councils and it hosts more than 300,000 IDPs from the other Syrian cities.

We implore the international community to act in the name of peace and justice, and work to halt this Turkish offensive with such efforts as instituting a no-fly zone over Afrin, sending a team of UN observers, or providing peace-keeping troops to secure the Turkish-Syrian border.
