Here's an updated thread of what to do as a westerner if you're worrying about another Turkish invasion of Syria.

#DoNotAbandonRojava #StopTurkeyDefendRojava #Twitterkurds #Syria #Rojava #DFNS #DefendAfrin #SDF #YPG #YPJ #QSD
The last few weeks have really underlined just how quickly the situation on the ground can change. Although the immediate disaster may have been averted, we should take this as a reminder to always be as organised and prepared as possible.
The US intervention has been nice, and it's allowed the liberation of North and East Syria to go much faster. That's saved countless lives. But the US was always an unreliable ally, and the current administration has never had a consistent or coherent policy on Syria.

#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)

Thread: #Turkish doctor in #Sweden

“When I was interning at a nursing school in #Turkey I would deliberately prick #Kurdish children with needles. I miss those days”. She needs to brought to justice she lives in #Stockholm
She used to lock #Kurdish children in Bathrooms for hours
#twitterkurds #Kurd #Kurdistan #Rojava
She also says that organs of Kurdish children must be removed and be given to Turkish children.
This is a doctor working out there on the loose! With no honor or dignity.
Kurds in Sweden and Stockholm should bring her to justice!

#BREAKING: It is now confirmed that following to an agreement between #Syrian authorities & #SDF/#YPG, #Syrian Arab Army will quickly take control of city of #Manbij upon withdrawal of last #US troops. #Russia will not provide air support, but #SAADF will establish No fly zone.
#BREAKING: Large convoy of #Syrian Arab Army waiting for withdrawal of last #US troops from #Manbij to take control of the city & not let it to be occupied by #Turkey's Ahrar al-Sharqiya terrorists (all ex-#AlQaeda). #Syria Air Defense Force has deployed Buk-M2 SAM batteries too.
These are the terrorists mobilized by #Turkey to take control of #Manbij, kill hundreds of civilians and start ethnic cleansing there. Coalition of #YPG #Syrian Arab Army will confront #FSA, Ahrar al-Sharqiya (former #AlQaeda terrorists) & Islamofascist Turkmen militias.

1. Syria: Twitter flooded w/ Turkish ISIS/AQ propaganda seeking panic in Manbij & border areas of #Rojava. Presume no more US-French Turkish joint patrols in #Manbij area because @Trump allowed AQ Jihadists to approach Manbij. Sgt Dunbar was killed there IMO by Turkey in March. Master Sgt. Johnathan J. Dunbar, of Austin
2. US forces continue to occupy #Manbij but @POTUS' agreement to surrender to AQ & ISIS has put them at great risk. Because @Trump has business relations with 9/11 connected Saudi's (@KSAmofaEN) US forces should be on alert for more @realDonaldTrump @WHNSC US force redeployments.
3. IMO until @POTUS formally obtains US Congressional approval for his surrender to Al-Qaeda #2001AUMF is the only lawful order that the US @CENTCOM should follow in dealing with Turkish Al-Qaeda force threatening our @USSOCOM in Manbij.

#SRO | With #US troops about to evacuate, #Erdogan has now the green light to launch its massive offensive against #SDF coalition. This will begin at Tal Abyad (Girespi) and Ras al-Ayn (Serekanye), as #SRO leaked months ago to force #SDF to divide forces to resist (1).
#SRO | Expect #France to announce, soon, the same strategy to evacuate its forces in coming weeks and months. Northern Federation is more and more isolated. Expect #Assad to cross #Euphrates backed by #Russia when #SDF will leave to fight at north frontlines against #Turkey (2).
#SRO | Main priority for #Erdogan will be to control Tal Abyad for sure but also Sarrin. It will create two besieged pockets around Kobane and Manbij, without any possibility for #SDF to reach these areas. #Assad : it will be clear to strike Omar oilfield and reach Shadadi (3).

#SRO | ARCHIVES - Vidéos about #YPG in battles against regime in #Aleppo city are rare because not same policy as rebels to show their battles with phones. Here #YPG hunting out #Assad loyalists from Salah ad-Din mosque area in Ashrafiyah (Feb. 2013) :
ADD.: #Assad regime flag is taken down from police station and local services in Ashrafiyah (a building just next to Salah ad-Din mosque) with columns at entrance, and the #Rojava flag is being shown for the view of all. #YPG, at that time, controlling already most of Ashrafiyah.
#SRO | ARCHIVES - #AFP report from Dec. 12 - 14, 2012 on #YPG in #Afrin and #Aleppo kurdish suburbs. TV report clearly also showing #YPG controlling Sheikh Maqsoud industrial zone (their most important extent of control there : north = rebel territory) :

A #thread on Turkey’s #Afrin offensive.
This aggression is indirectly connected to #IranProtests because #Russia and Iran are using Turkey for their own interests and Iran in particular wants to silence and weaken its domestic unrest.
Last year when I was in Moscow I told a Syrian Kurdish representative in Moscow that the Kurds must be very careful about Russians as Putin will try to weaken the Kurds in Syria soon. I suggested that she analyses Moscow’s move and report to their HQ in #Rojava.
However, she responded negatively and she accused me of being paranoid. It was then when I wrote this

piece for @myfairobserver and highlighted a few issues including:

1) A MONUMENTAL DAY: The #KDP has FULLY WITHDRAWN from #Sinjar. I'm completely SPEECHLESS—(well, not completely): Bye-bye KDP!
#Yazidi #Iraq
2) After over 3 years of fighting for this outcome, the #Yazidi community has finally scored a major victory in reclaiming their homeland.
3) After #Peshmerga withdrew from Kirkuk yesterday (for which the PUK was hit w/ blame), the effect continues in KDP-controlled areas today.
