Protests against Turkish war crimes in Northern Syria

Thousands of people have protested against Turkish war crimes in various cities in Northern Syria. Most recently, eight children were killed by a Turkish shelling in Til Rifat on Monday.

Once again, demonstrations against the war crimes of the Turkish army and its Islamist partners have taken place in numerous cities in Northern Syria. Last Monday, ten refugees from Afrin died in a Turkish artillery attack on Til Rifat town in the canton of Shehba. Eight of the victims were children between the ages of three and 15.

The demonstrations in Qamishlo, Hesekê, Til Kocher, Deir ez-Zor, Girkê Legê, Dêrik, Til Hemis, Dirbêsiyê, Raqqa-Kerame, Amûdê, Tirbespiyê and Fafîn (Shehba) denounced the silence of the world public on Turkish war crimes.

The people displayed flags of the PYD and the Northern Syrian defence forces SDF, YPJ and YPG. Pictures of the killed children were shown on banners. Many participants also carried pictures of their fallen relatives.
