#AfrinCity Protesters - against high electricity prices and long power cuts - have set the electricity company on fire tonight. I received this video a while ago from one of my contacts in Afrin (the city).
In the Mahmoudiye district. "And the local council w stormed and set on fire. A popular intifada" as my source describes it, "1000s on the street, against the very high energy bills that people can't afford. Bills reach ahout $50." #Afrin

Disturbing & disappointing developments in continued assaults by #Turkish military in #Syria + #Iraq , particularly Turkish claim that this has been coordinated with Iraq/KRG authorities, which has serious implications for #Yezidi #Yazidi in #Sinjar; and many others.

Thread.
In this @washingtonpost article, it implies that cooperation exists among various authorities to green light #Turkey airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. This has serious implications for the so-called "Sinjar Agreement", which has failed to help Yezidis there.

washingtonpost.com/world/turkey-l…
The situation is extremely grave. ALL authorities throughout #Iraq , including Iraq govt & KRG govt, have a solemn duty to protect citizens in their territories. The deliberate targeting of #Yezidi #Yazidi in #Sinjar is an abominable human rights violations that is ongoing.

1. Volgens Russische media is een artilleriegranaat vanuit #Oekraïne op Russisch grondgebied neergekomen in de regio #Rostov op 1 kilometer van de grens en op 300 meter van een bewoond gebouw in het dorp Mityakinskaya.
2. De Volksrepublieken #Donetsk & #Luhansk gaan over tot algemene mobilisatie van alle strijdbare mannen.
Een Oekraïense soldaat is gesneuveld door artillerievuur van de pro-Russische milities.
3. Volgens de Donetsk Volksrepubliek gaat #Oekraïne de komende dagen volgens dit plan de #Donbass binnenvallen en zullen er etnische zuiveringen plaatsvinden. 31.000 burgers zouden volgens @sputnik_fr al geëvacueerd zijn uit #Lugansk en #Donetsk naar #Rusland. Image

Something big is going down in NW #Syria -- (a) U.S. helicopter gunships firing on a target in the #Jinderes area of #Afrin & (b) a possible SOF raid targeting Tauqir Sharif, a [former] #UK citizen in the Atmeh area of #Idlib.

Personally, I'd be amazed if such an operation was launched at Tauqir Sharif (Abu Hossam al-Britani) -- while his #UK citizenship was revoked, the cause for doing so never seemed more than tenuous.
The house in the #Atmeh area has reportedly been surrounded by [alleged U.S.] SOF -- a loudspeaker just ordered the building to be emptied.



My guess: it's a senior #AlQaeda (Huras al-Din) figure -- HaD seniors are known to hide in the Atmeh area.

In preparation for handing it over to the Syrian army and Russia, Turkey orders extremist jihadist groups to withdraw from the Latakia Mountains (al-Kabena and Bayer Boujak) and the region of ​​Jisr al-Shughur.
According to the information, these extremists from the terrorist "Jund Allah" and "Jund al-Sham" affiliated with Al-Qaeda, and most of them are of Turkish, Caucasian and Russian origin, are being withdrawn to #Afrin occupied by Turkey.
The Turkish purpose of this step is to implement the Russian conditions to hand over some areas of Idlib, whitewash HTS in that it is separate from foreign jihadists and al-Qaeda, and to re-use these extremists to fight the SDF after they were integrated into the so-called SNA.

Update #Syria
Die Türkei verlegt weiter Kriegsgerät in den Norden von Syrien.
Die meisten Konvois treffen in #Idlib ein, manche auch in #Afrin und an der Trennlinie zu den kurdisch kontrollierten Gebieten.
Es wird weiterhin gerätselt, ob Ankara neue Militäroperation startet
(1/4)
Zuvor hatte #Erdogan mit neuen Militärschritten in #Syrien gedroht, um die "kurdische Bedrohung" zu beenden.
Es wird vermutet, dass die Operation südlich von #Kobani anlaufen könnte, um die beiden "Pufferzonen" miteinander zu verbinden.
#Syria #Idlib

Unterdessen flog die russische Luftwaffe wieder schwere Angriffe auf Stellungen pro-türkischer Gruppierungen in #Idlib .
Ankara unternimmt nichts, um dies zu verhindern.
Womöglich ist es sogar in türk.Interesse, dass die Söldnergruppen "von anderen" beseitigt werden.

1. Unclear if this is a signal of a change in #Russia's policy in #Syria, but it deserves note. #Erdoğan's deal with #Putin allowed #Turkey to occupy much of Northern #Syria using forces made up of al-#Qaeda & #Daesh fighters. Recent #Russian bombing in #Barad in SW #Afrin
2. hit and killed several of these Turkish backed al-#Hamzah Division terrorist forces. That group is embedded with Turkish forces and reported to be commanded by the Turkish special forces. Hamza is a monstrous terrorist force that commits crimes against #Kurds and religious
3. minorities and abducts women who are enslaved. There are also reports of Russian helicopters dumping flares over Turkish terrorist held region of North East Syria. IMO there will never be peace in Syria with Turkey and its terrorist occupying any part of it. Putin may have

Because the Turkish government controls which journalists are allowed to visit Afrin, the stories published by the pro-AKP publications are very similar to what was being published in the NYT. It is striking that the NYT opted not to cover human rights abuses in #Afrin
Several weeks ago, the Islamist Turkish daily newspaper Yeni Şafak cited a New York Times piece, praising Turkey’s presence in the Afrin province in northern Syria.

Yeni Şafak has a reputation as a pro-AKP newspaper with an established record of publishing hate speech
At first, this story appeared to be yet another false narrative published in furtherance of Turkey’s military aims. I assumed Yeni Şafak was only citing the ‘good part’ of the article from the NYT, and must have been leaving out the all-important context.#Afrin

1. Over 3 years have past since the start of the battle for Raqqa. Remembering the brave members of US forces who fought to defeat Daesh alongside our brave Arab, Kurd and Christian #SDF partners.
via @YouTube
2. Six months after that battle started, Trump surrendered #Afrin to Erdogan after @MikePompeo's meeting with three sanctioned Russian intel chiefs in DC. Syrian Christian churches that had survived since the earliest times were looted and desecrated by Turkish backed jihadist
3. including #ISIS and Al-#Qaeda. Then in October last year, after a single call from his Turkish terrorist business associate, Trump surrendered Gire Spi and Tel Abyad again facilitating a #Christian, #Kurds and #Ezidi genocide by Erdogan's jihadist horde.

Kurdlere olmadik zulmu eden ve onlari yerinden yurdundan eden irkci Erdogan'in kellesini alanlarin Kurdlerin olmasi tarihsel bir sorumluluktur.

#twitterkurds #Afrin #Ankara
Erdogan Osmanlici degildir, Osmanli karsiti irkci-ittihatci Enver Pasa'nin ta kendisidir.

Osmanli'da Kurdlerin diline ve namusuna goz konulmadi ama Erdogan irkci rejiminde bunlarin hepsi yapildi.

Kurdler en ilkel kan davasini yillarca surdururken bu adamin pesini niye biraksin?
Enver, Talat ve Cemal kactiklari ulkelerde kistirilip soykirima ugrattiklari kavmin cocuklari tarafindan cezalari kesildi, peki Kurdler neden #Afrin, Sur ve Cizre'de zulmedenleri affetsin?

#THREAD #RANT on #Turkey foreign policy

Another article (not surprisingly on Al Jazeera) trying to convince us that #Ankara is the victim and Turkish foreign policy is on the defence. The approach is superficial at best and ignores a number of facts >>

aljazeera.com/indepth/opinio…
That Turkey unofficially abandoned regime change in #Syria is not the point: same author, in 2013 Hinnebusch & Tur book wrote "Turkey saw an opportunity to bring abt regime change in Damascus at Iran's expense...it was a matter of geopolitical competition between Ankara & Tehran"
Regime change was an unprecedented policy for Ankara to adopt & a revisionist one; by the author's admission, for the purpose of regional power. 4 interventions later it's inaccurate to say that "Turkey's ability to influence the course of the conflict was reduced to a minimum"

#Syria: drugs were shipped from #Latakia port & came from an #Aleppo factory equipped with large-scale industrial machinery, excluding #ISIS. Expect to see more of this as #Damascus is suffocating economically.
#Syria: another large drug shipment (incl. 4+ million of Captagon pills) was seized in Romania (largest seizure in the country). Ship again departed from #Latakia like for previous giant seizure in Italy. balkaninsight.com/2020/09/02/rom…
Seizures of large quantities of drugs coming from #Syria are multiplying. Captagon & Hashish seized by Egypt (6 + 2.5 tons, shipped from #Latakia port) as well as by Jordan past days.

Thread recording every known #R9X Hellfire (aka #NinjaMissile & #FlyingGinsu) strike.

The AGM-114R-9X is an inert variant of the AGM-114 "Hellfire" developed by #Lockheed that is meant to reduce risk of civilian casualties while using pop-out blades to maintain lethality. ImageImageImage
The #R9X has received much attention since a @WSJ article by @glubold & @wstrobel last year where it was said to have been used "about a half-dozen times" against high level terrorist targets in "#Libya #Syria #Iraq #Yemen & #Somalia"

wsj.com/articles/secre…
Its extreme precision, exotic nature, and increasingly visible usage by what is presumed to be #JSOC and #CIA according to a piece by @FranticGoat for @thewarzonewire have kept it in the spotlight though.
