1. I'm no #Assad fan. He is a brutal dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people. But we learned what happens if you destroy a nation's defense force after defeating dictators in #Germany and in #Iraq. What comes is either subjugation to a predator like the USSR or chaos
2. in the form of something like #Daesh. The #Turkish attack on the Syrian #Arab Republic forces near #Kobane is an act of an aggressor nation seeking to subjugate #Syria so it can commit genocide against #Yazidi, #Kurds and #Christians. @NATO cannot permit #Erdogan to hold
3. our collective morality and best interests hostage while he uses #Finland and #Sweden's accession as means to extort complicity in his crimes. Tell #Erdogan if he attacks Syria every member of @NATO will terminate their #Article5 obligations to #Turkey and cast the neo-

1. I began reporting on the war against #Daesh in #Syria starting at the same time I began reporting on the #Russian invasion of #Ukraine. 2014. I covered #Kobane to #Baghuz in 2019. You cannot fight a war with a psychotic brutal enemy who does not follow the law of armed

3. terrifying. #Hit the HQ and ammo dumps with #GMLRS and then pour down tube artillery like a hail storm. That's what it took in Raqqa. The @USMC burned up their 155mm gun barrels. And with the SDF valor suffering huge casualties they finally crushed them

Anlaşılan Lütfü Türkkan'ında (@LutfuTurkkan) aynı @meral_aksener gibi @RTErdogan, @suleymansoylu ve @dbdevletbahceli gibilerinden bir farkları yok...

@iyiparti'nin @Akparti'den/@MHP_Bilgi'den bir farkı yok, onlar gibi #serefsiz, #yolsuz, #terbiyesiz yalakalardan oluşuyorlar.
Demek istediğim şey Lütfü Türkkan'ın olduğu @iyiparti zaten parsel rantından da hoşlanıyor:

In September of 1995. Rade Rogic, a Serb soldier was ritually killed with a knife by #mujahideen Al Harbi Teufik (Tawfik), served with the 5th corps of the Muslim #Bosnia Army, 505th #Buzim brigade. This was not only the murder of this notorious murderer and late #ISIS member. ⤵️
Al Harbi Teufik came in 1992. to serve in Muslim #Bosnia Army as a jihadi warrior with Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦 citizenship. In the verdict of the Court of BiH 🇧🇦 in the Alic case, it was confirmed that he also killed Basic Branko, Devetak Mirko, Stambolija Petar, and Borosina Pero.⤵️
After the war in Bosnia, he moved back to Saudi Arabia without prosecution, but it was not the end of his military and jihadi journey since 2013. he became one of the highly ranked #ISIS officials in #Syria with new name Sultan Al Safri al Harbi nicknamed “Abu Nassar Al-Harbi”⤵️

1. When I returned to finish my degree at @UMassAmherst I recall being in a class that was about warfare and involved the role of women in society. The Amherst - Northampton area was always a center of feminist thought and any discourse in regard to women's rights was spirited.
2. The great fraud that is directed to women is that they're not tough-enough to be President. I engaged early to back the forces fighting #ISIS in #Kobane that were made up of a mixed male-female force dedicated to equality of all persons. We witnessed acts of bravery in combat
3. by women that would match those of any male fighter. But back in that class, I lamented that the way women will move closer to equality is by being allowed to fight in combat. I lamented that is was sad that adopting something like warfare was the test of equality.

1. In the late summer of 2014, I begged the Obama administration to provide cover & JPADS drops to save the few hundred #Kurdish YPG YPJ left surrounded by #Daesh in #Kobane. And he did it. I have reported every day on their courageous battle against Daesh. My YouTube channel
2.every Pentagon briefing from 2016 to #Daesh's surrender. IMO Trump's betrayal was a greater blunder than killing #QassemSoleimani.

We need a place to go. The #SDC and #SDF can administer a save civil society based on self governance and the Golden Rule.
3. Free, secular and Democratic. It may not be too late. But we have to act fast. Ask your members of Congress to support the SDC and SDF and demand Turkey withdraw from North and East Syria. Turkey is booting us. Now Iraq. We need trusted friends. @SenatorRisch @senatemajldr

Per più di 20 giorni ho informato quotidianamente, a volte ora per ora, rispetto a quanto stava accadendo nella Siria del Nord dopo l’invasione turca iniziata il 9 Ottobre.

Nelle prossime settimane, per diverse ragioni, rallento un pò.
Certamente continuerò giorno per giorno a rilanciare notizie, a tenere alta l’attenzione, a denunciare e contro-informare rispetto a quanto accade.
Qui, sul blog di @didalbasso, troverete un archivio di quanto accadutonei primi 23 giorni di guerra (bit.ly/Rojava-news)
La mattina del 15 Maggio 2015 mi svegliavo a #Kobane. Dopo aver fatto questa foto, decidevo di aprire questo profilo proprio per raccontare di quanto succedeva in Rojava e in Kurdistan.

Eyewitness says US troops materialised 'out of nowhere', set up a position and 'questioned one man for nearly an hour'

AGGIORNAMENTI DAL ROJAVA – SIRIA DEL NORD
GIORNO 14 (22/10/2019) – Ore 10:00

👉 Oggi alle 19 termina il "cessate il fuoco", macabro countdown sulle TV turche
👉 La Turchia ha violato la tregua per 37 volte uccidendo 57 combattenti SDF e ferendone 90.
👉 Accordo tra SDF, Esercito Siriano e Russia per pattugliamento confine
👉 Furti e saccheggi a Serekaniye da parte dei mercenari turco/jhiadisti
👉 Le foto e le testimonianze dei civili e dei combattenti colpiti con fosforo bianco
Alle 19 di oggi scadrà il termine del “cessate il fuoco” concordato da USA e Turchia. La tregua non è mai stata realmente rispettata dalla Turchia che han continuato ad attaccare e bombardare sia nell’area compresa tra Serekaniye e Tal Abyad, sia nei pressi di Kobane e Manbij.

1. I have observed the evolution of the initially #Kurdish #Syrian opposition force from #YPG #YPJ surrounded by #ISIS in #Kobane in the summer of 2014, to the multi-ethnic #SDF then to creation of an Autonomous Administration (AA). I've watched them rebuild much of the area the
2. AA oversees. At no time did I ever perceive that the SDF or the AA expected to be a separate state. As far as I can recall the international borders were always intended to have federal central government control in their design. This is not that, but it is not so far off
3. to miss the chance that this action may stop an imminent genocide. ✌️

1. Ongoing thread covering #IS’s response to and comms around recent developments in northern #Syria. Focus will be on camps, prisons and tactics.
2. 9 Oct: Something weird going on in #Raqqa, which was, per #SDF reports last night, subject to a “large-scale assault” by #IS. Meanwhile, total radio silence from #IS.
3. This is strange. When #IS has mounted flash urban assaults in years gone by, it has intensively reported on them, often as the attacks were ongoing. Think #Palmyra, Dec 16; Kirkuk, Oct 16, #Rutbah, May 16, #Kobane, Jun 15.

@MSF These have been extremely difficult decisions, as @MSF

#Serekaniye totalmente sotto contro SDF, scontri ad ovest di #Kobane, vittime civili a #Manbij, la mezzaluna rossa curda lancia un appello: "disastro umanitario".

#Thread #Rojava #Siria
E’ stata una nottata di resistenza quella appena trascorsa nella Siria del Nord. La città di Serekaniye, assediata da giorni da migliaia di forze dell’esercito turco e delle brigate jhiadiste sostenute da Erdogan, è totalmente sotto il controllo delle SDF.
Dopo continui attacchi supportati da raid aerei, diversi report parlano di un attacco da parte delle SDF che ha colto di sorpresa il nemico: alcune brigate jhiadiste si sarebbero addirittura ritirate in Turchia lasciando il posto alle forze speciali turche, che tuttavia ->

La Turchia, nostro alleato (!) NATO nel silenzio complice dell'Europa e del mondo inizia un tentativo di genocidio e pulizia etnica contro i il Popolo Curdo
Per favore, smettetela di dire "mai più" quando si parla di Olocausto
repubblica.it/esteri/2019/10… via @repubblica
@repubblica Ovviamente, tutto è iniziato con un bombardamento alla cieca contro regioni abitate d amigliaia di civili
L'Europa e le cancellerie dei Paesi "democratici" si mobilitino al più presto.
ORA!
@repubblica “Resistere è vivere” è la parola d’ordine dei Curdi.
Così scrivevo nella prefazione del libro "Kobane dentro".
Oggi non sono i tagliagole dell'ISIS, ma la dittaura nazi-islamica turca
