Afrin people protest human rights organizations for their silence
The people of Afrin are protesting the international human rights organizations and states that have remained silent in the face of the barbaric attacks against civilians by the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs.
Reactions grow among the citizens of Afrin against the international community and legal organizations who have remained silent in the face of the inhumane practices of the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs against the civilian population like murder, abduction, harassment, rape and robbery.
On top of barbaric practices like abduction, murder, blackmail, theft and looting, the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs also confiscate the olive trees that belong to the citizens of Afrin and set fire to them. The gangs threaten to kill the civilians so they don’t go to their fields.
The people of Afrin who have settled in the Serdem Camp in Shehba are voicing their reactions to the massacres of the invading Turkish state and their allied gangs, and condemned the human rights organizations who have stayed silent. A citizen named Mihemed Xelil said: “The invading Turkish state wants to annihilate the Kurdish people and change the demographic make-up of Afrin. The invading Turkish state loots the citizens’ homes because of their hatred towards the Kurdish people, they steal their valuables and confiscate the olive trees our ancestors had planted.”
Another citizen named Miwefeq İbrahim said: “There is no law in the world that allows for confiscating another person’s home or stealing their valuables. This is a crime against humanity. This is a dark stain on the forehead of all organizations who call for human rights but have stayed silent in the face of the violations in Afrin.”
Xatun Mihemed said: “Afrin is known for its olives. The people of Afrin’s livelihood is olive trade. But the invading Turkish state and their gangs have been pillaging through everything the citizens of Afrin have, in front of the whole world, and nobody bats an eye for these crimes against humanity.”
