عفرين تحت الاحتلال ـ 105

Afrin is under occupation (105):
Massive and renewed arrests (Korzelleha once more) theft of the fig crop
Any observer of the scale of daily practices, violations and crimes committed by terrorist militias operating under the name of the “Syrian National Army” pro “Syrian Interim Government” with the direct supervision of the Turkish intelligence, can realize the extent of injustice, suffering and tragedies that the indigenous people of Afrin have been facing since the occupation of the area by the Turkish army in March 2018 until this moment. The aforementioned practices and violations aim at eliminating the Kurdish presence in the region and erasing their historical and cultural identity under the pretext of (protecting Turkish national security). This argument is far from fact and reality; and can be easily refuted as the Turkish borders with Afrin, on the Syrian side, did not witness any attacks or security or military encroachments during the reign of self-administration. On the contrary, those borders witnessed an unprecedented relative stability unlike the borders in other areas controlled by the opposition militants and jihadists since 2011. The violations are still continuing at a higher rate of which we monitored the following during this week:
– The population of Korzellah – Sherawa villages have been subjected to a widespread campaign of arrests and repeated provocations more than once. On 24/08/2020 the so-called “military police” of the Turkish occupation authorities raided the village, and a campaign of arrests was launched against civilians of whom the following were identified: Muhammad Jaafo s/o Nuri & Amina / 35 / years old, Walid Jamaana s/o Ali and Khadija / 55 / years old, Subhi Jamaana s/o Ali and Khadija / 60 / years, Ahmed Alo Ibish s/o Ali and Gaza / 58 / years old, Ahmed Ibish s/o Zakaria and Khadija / 42 years old, Yasmine Abdo S/ot Ibrahim and Fahima / 35 / years old, Moulida Jafo s/o Mustafa / 50 / years old, Rizan Subhi Jamaana s/o Ali and born / 35 / years old, Khalida Kamal Jafo, wife of Rizan / 30 / years, Siham Jaafar s/o Saeed & Houria (40 / years They were all released on 25/08/2020.
– The ” military police “, in coordination with the militia ” Liwa Ashmal ” stormed the village of Sheikh Killa – Mabata and arrested a number of civilians from the village : Muhyiddin Çiçek Sheikh Kilo / 35 / year, Mekdad Çiçek Sheikh Kilo / 33 / year, Chakib Nuri Sheikh Kilo / 23 / years old, Essam Mohi al-Din Sheikh Kilo / 55 / years, Fawzi Mohi al-Din Sheikh Kilo / 57 / years, Farouq Mohi al-Din Sheikh Kilo / 44 / years old . They were taken to the security headquarters in Afrin city without knowing the reasons behind their arrest. The so-called Civil Police also arrested: Kawa Haddo s/o Saeed / 43 / years old and Rashid Bilal s/o Manan / 56 / years from the village of Shiktka – Shiyeh on charges of dealing with the Self-Administration authorities.
– As a part of the continual theft of agricultural crops belonging to Afrin’s indigenous population; and in a clear and explicit abuse of private property, the militants and some recruited persons are unfairly stealing the fig crop in most villages and suburbs of the region. Needless to say, that is a crystal clear plundering of the indigenous people’s sources of living.
The pressure being exerted by the Turkish occupation authorities on the indigenous inhabitants of Afrin will not be able to eliminate their determination and insistence on clinging to their land and defending it by various means, nor will it be able to oblige them give up their tireless endeavor to end the occupation and expel the Turkish forces behind the international borders and end the presence of militias, with the forcibly displaced population of the region returning to their homes.
