Statement regarding the first anniversary of attacks on #Afrin
January 20, 2019 | Press Releases

1-The great resistance and struggle of the peoples of western Kurdistan (Rojava) and Northern Syria has created a unique association within the community.
ypgrojava.org/ypgpressoffice…
2-Our struggle which started as a battle against #ISIS in west of #Kurdistan evolved into a revolution which has stood against all kinds of invasion attempts.
3-Spending all its energy trying to legitimize its #occupation of #Syrian lands, #Turkey has resumed its efforts to stop the progress our forces have made in west #Kurdistan and to undermine the democratic and revolutionary development of our people.

Interesting that Kurdish outlets are publishing these details. The YPG has an interest in showing there's an alternative to the "safe zone" Ankara and Washington are discussing #Syria
The current configuration suggests there will be two rival negotiating tracks, one US-sponsored track focused on creating a safe zone along the #Syria-#Turkey border, and another Russia-backed track meant to integrate the SDF back into the regime
Those two tracks can complete each other, but they also most likely will be in competition. If the SDF feels Washington is siding with Turkey, it will be more willing to make compromises with the regime for instance #Syria

Nordic Monitor talked to a senior gov't insider in #Turkey and reveals how Turkish intelligence used former special ops officers to train & arm jihadists nordicmonitor.com/2019/01/turkis…
2) After the start of the conflict in Syria in 2011 during the Arab revolutions, a special desk was set up in Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) for the purpose of toppling Assad and replacing his regime with an Islamist gov't under the secret orders of #Erdogan .
3) According to a confidential source who spoke to Nordic Monitor on condition of anonymity, one of the first things MIT did was to recall all former police officers, ex-military members and special operations figures who had trouble with the law in the past.

#BorisJohnson has been accused of lying about claims concerning #Turkey during the #Referendum. My legal team and I are prosecuting @BorisJohnson for the alleged offence of misconduct in public office, in connection with claims he made that the UK 'sends' £350 million to the EU.
2. Mr Johnson is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law. Please do not comment upon Mr Johnson's innocence or guilt once the case has been initiated with the courts in the coming weeks.
3. Please use respectful and measured language when referring to Mr Johnson, the courts and our case whilst the prosecution case is active. Do not risk being accused of contempt of court.

1) Nordic Monitor take the lid off a stealthy pro-Iranian radical group #Malatyalılar that wields considerable influence in #Turkey’s governance nordicmonitor.com/2019/01/radica…
2) The group is closely connected to Turkish intelligence agency MİT, has been busy in penetrating into the security and foreign policy apparatus of the Turkish government, shaping policies that nurture jihadist views and transforming Turkey into a rogue nation.
3) The Malatyalılar, reorganized in 1992 under an illegal structure called Türkiye Islam Hareketi (TİH, Turkey Islamic Movement) with cells established for armed conflict and weapons stockpiled for a future battle, is led by an extremist figure named Zekeriya Şengöz

1. And now I'm going to tell a story. Another false flag. This time is to force @POTUS not to take the US army out of #Syria.
They already have a lot of experience (8 years) to make chemical attacks to accuse the Syrian government.
OH, and they even have a manual.🧐😲🤨
@RandPaul
2. ISIS terrorist? 😲Seriously?🤨 Have they investigated? 🤓And they already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

Preliminary reports say at least six people were killed & 19 injured by the explosion. US official: 4 US army Killed & 3 US army wounded.

3. ISIS took responsability?😲Seriously?🤨Have they investigated?🤓They already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) took responsibility for the attack that reportedly targeted the US-led coalition’s patrol.

3) The transfer of the funds was picked up by the US government, which alerted Turkish authorities and asked for an investigation into the network that enabled the funding of al-Shabab.

With the scrutiny of the Turkish, American, Kurdish and Russian military movements in the Syrian east and its surroundings, it is now possible to develop a scenario that will be closest to what will be the map of the Syrian East.2/12

In a secret visit to #Ankara a few days ago, a Syrian delegation led by Ahmed al-#Jarba, a leader of a military group of Arabs supported by the International Coalition and #Washington, arrived from the areas of #SDF.3/12

1) More than 500 intelligence officers purged and/or jailed by Erdogan gov’t in #Turkey in an unprecedented move to turn the nation's spy agency into an abusive & intrusive tool at the hands of repressive regime nordicmonitor.com/2019/01/over-5…
2) This amounts to 7 percent of intelligence officers #Erdogan has purged and/or jailed from the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) since 2013, when he and his family members were incriminated in a graft probe that involved Iranian and Saudi nationals.
3) According to a secret document obtained by Nordic Monitor, the agency revealed that 558 MİT employees have been dismissed from the spy agency, corresponding to some 7 percent of its total workforce.

Did you know #Turkey has a #BorderWall of 764-kilometer or (475-mile) among its border with #Syria? The project was finished in June 2018. It is made from Concrete and barb wire @charliekirk11 Build bridges not walls....
Some more pictures of the #BorderWall from #Turkey with #Syria.
This is the 3.1 billion euros of money what Europe gave to #Turkey back in the summer of 2015, to help and keep the #Refugees in Turkey. Meanwhile they keep living in plastic tents and mobile homes instead of building real homes with that money Europe gave them.

I'm starting a new thread on the naẓar amulet for protection against the Evil Eye. Now, the Evil Eye and the symbolism surrounding it is a widely acknowledged and historically relevant phenomenon across many cultures, so I'm just going to focus on the blue-eyed glass talismans.
Our journey starts in ancient #Mesopotamia, where 100s of votive figures were found in the excavation of the temple of Tell Brak. The most exclusive feature of these idols were their eyes. These amulets go back to 3300 BC and are the oldest eye amulets discovered.
The Evil Eye is a common term to refer to a specific curse being cast, intentional or unintentional, by the jealous looks of others towards the success of the one they envy. The ocular amulet is than in fact the charm meant to ward off the true Evil Eye.

1) Nordic Monitor reveals another case of how #Turkey hushed up the case of intelligence agency MIT arming jihadists in Syria nordicmonitor.com/2019/01/turkey…
2) The Turkish government dropped an investigation launched in November 2013 into arms shipments to jihadist group when police seized 931 empty mortar shells and 10 metal tubes for launchers from a truck in Adana near the Syrian border.
3) The arms transfers were done under the auspices of Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), and the man who coordinated the entire setup, from manufacturing in machinist shops in Turkey to transport to Syria, was an operative of the Turkish spy agency.

Ex-Nusra (#AQ rebranded HTS) walked into its own death by taking a large territory in #Idlib and its surrounding. The defeat of large groups like Ahrar and Souqourv al-Sham (who showed little resistance) and the elimination of Zinki group will have deadly consequences on AQ.+
No doubt #Turkey asked Ahrar et al to stand down & avoid fighting (for now). It means #Ankara would be happy to see the end of its presence in #Idlib on the long term. For this, Erdogan needs to see a very large battle taking place first in the north between these groups and #AQ
Erdogan & Putin will have a meeting soon to discuss the #Kurds and #AQ in #Idlib. I expect hot spring in Idlib and a large offensive against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Abu Mohammad al Joulani's ambition (from ex-ISIS emir to AQ Emir to ruler of Idlib) is helping to end this phenomena.

THREAD on @RT_Erdogan's @nytimes op-ed, #Ankara's relations with @realDonaldTrump, #Putin
1.#Erdogan's op-ed - masterpiece of communication effort in hostile info-environment,the lobbysts who worked on it deserve credit for understanding psychology of Western reader&current political discourse in #US which helps them pick arguments urbi et orbi
nyti.ms/2REWFsY
2. Endorsment: #Erdogan basically argues #Trump is right in his decision to depart #Syria but it should be done in a smat way to meet "interests of US, international cummunity & Syrians" => shout out to both Trump's conservative constituency & liberals: "TUR cares about YOU"

I can only see positiveness in the expansion of al-Qaeda in #Syria. The more cities and villages it controls, the faster it will lose.

#AQ in Syria is trying to earn the heart and minds of the locals but it is trying to full up their pockets. This group has learned nothing.
Today I am very confident & much more positive that #Turkey will not occupy north of #Syria and will not stay in the territory it occupies today for ever.

@RT_Erdogan is confirming his strategic relationship with #Russia & #Iran is more precious than #USA
#AQ was planning long ago to expand its control. #Turkey rejected Joulani's wishes for very long. By accepting or closing an eye on the ex-#ISIS Emir, i.e. Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, #Turkey has found the best way to liberate itself from al-Qaeda's burden.

1) @nordicmonitor reveals the full text of implementation deal for military agreement between #Turkey & #Qatar that allowed Turkey to set up a base in Doha. The agreement is full of loopholes and vague terms that appear to have been deliberately inserted. nordicmonitor.com/2019/01/turkey…
2) The bilateral agreement would allow Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdogan to use Turkish air, land and naval assets to promote his own ideological and personal interests in the Gulf and beyond by using the hard power of the NATO military alliance’s second largest army.
3) The agreement carries huge risks of escalation of Turkey’s involvement in conflicts that may have nothing to do with protecting or promoting Turkey’s national interests. The vagueness in the deal were deliberate & systematic to allow Erdogan to use them as he sees fit.

It‘s remarkable that @RT_Erdogan is preventing peaceful demonstrators from raising awareness about the genocide #China‘s committing against the #Uyghurs of #EastTurkistan. Separately, I’ve seen tweets from #Turkey’s talking heads accusing the [frequently incompetent] @CIA of…
… being behind the demonstrations. As somebody who‘s openly, vocally critical of the #CIA (seriously, check my timeline) & who spends hours everyday trying to help raise awareness of the #Uyghur issue, I can tell you that I’ve seen *NO* US gov’t support for the #Uyghurs AT ALL…
… this is immensely frustrating, b/c this is a #HumanRights crisis & the #CIA would actually be in a position to help if they wanted to do the right thing. But more importantly, this conspiracy theory deflects from something more troubling: #Turkey’s closeness w/ #China

#SRO - ANALYSIS - With the ammount of forces being driven toward Greater #Idlib this night, clearly showing #Turkey has given green light for this move (it never happened until now), the best "winner" of the situation is the Northern Federation - #Rojava #SDF coalition (1).
#SRO - ANALYSIS - The most #Turkey proxies to be occupied in N-#Idlib | W-#Aleppo in front of the recent #HTS activities, the most of #SDF to breathe for coming weeks, far from the rising tensions and expected large offensive to be launched on Tal Abyad and Serekanye (2).
#SRO - ANALYSIS - So why #Turkey now completely turning tables ? #HTS presence and power was well known. But problem isn't #HTS for #Turkey, it's #Astana process. How to exist on international stage if you can't play your part (#Idlib was Turkey responsability) seriously ? (3)

Hay'yan, Anadan & Haritan under Jihadists of Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham Led by Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, the ex #ISIS officer, the ex-al Qaeda in the Levant and the actual leader of a large number of foreign fighters.

Joulani is taking position opposite #SAA.

google.com/maps/place/Hra…
Rural and the city of #Idlib, the rural area of #idlib, #Aleppo & #Hama are under Jihadists control. Is it time for the Syrian army, supported by #Russia to stop the jihadists advance if #Turkey is incapable of doing the job it has promised at #Astana?

#Turkey is embarrassed by Jihadists overwhelming control of most of the #Astana area of control. Joulani is forcing his place on #Ankara unless the Turkish army moves in to defeat him, or to steps aside and allows the #Syrian army to do the job.

1) Militants of a Turkish al-Qaeda-linked jihadist group have been operating under the auspices of the country’s ruling party AKP gov-t, arming themselves for what they claim to be a defensive move to protect #Turkey from the attack of western crusaders, Jews and Russians.
2) We studied one such militant who has been used by the AKP to attack journalists & critics and investigated his profile in depth to uncover a worrying pattern of radicalization among AKP supporters. The trend is not unique, and the case is definitely not an isolated one.
3) His name is Murat Özdemir, and he is one of too many faithful of Erdogan's followers. He and his family connected to a Turkish al-Qaeda group which was calling for armed jihad. Seen here posing with Turkish president son Necmettin Bilal Erdogan.
