Events of day 11 in the invasion attacks against Afrin
On day 11 of the ISIS collaborator Turkish state’s attacks against Afrin, the Resistance of the Age fighters don’t let fascism pass.
The aerial and terrestrial attacks against Afrin by the ISIS collaborator Turkish President RTE and the FSA alliance derived from ISIS-Nusra continue on day 11. The racist-jihadist alliance has mobilized all their resources to invade Afrin, and have resorted to bombing civilians with fighter jets and land attacks when they failed to advance in the face of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) resistance.
Erdoğan and his gangs have a massacre list that includes Alevis who survived the Dersim massacre and sought refuge in Afrin, Armenians who fled the 1915 genocide and victims of war who live in refugee camps. This list shows that the attack against Afrin is the continuation of a historic vengeance against the peoples.
Erdoğan has collaborated with looting, rapist groups gathered under the titles Al Qaeda, ISIS and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) throughout his term in power and is now attempting to push Kurds out of Afrin through civilian massacres and to turn the city into a new hub for terrorist organizations.
With this goal, the gangs that were brought to Afrin from Idlib, Hatay, Mersin, Kilis an Ankara and the Turkish army are attacking historic monuments from Afrin’s ancient past in the targeted civilian residential areas with ISIS’ methods. The attack against human heritage by ISIS, who destroyed the Palmyra ancient city, continues with the bombings of the historic Nebî Hûrî tomb in Afrin’s Shera district and the Selahaddîn Eyûbî Mosque in Jindires.

Contrary to the Turkish special war media’s claims, in Afrin center and the Jindirese, Mabata, Shera, Sherawa, Rajo and Bilbile districts, SDF fighters have displayed a historic resistance for days and delivered heavy blows to the AKP-Al Qaeda coalition.
