Today, thousands of Afrin s residents headed to al-Shabba canton in order to preserve their lives and the lives of their children as a result of the continuous shelling of the city.
In this context, the Turkish occupation army targeted on Saturday morning Afrin s people who were trying to get out of the city and access to the safe areas in al-Shabba canton resulting in killing and wounding dozens of civilians.

Bottom three images brings back memories best forgotten ...
Annexing territory by force is not supposed to be allowed under the UN International order - but they cannot effectively enforce much of anything, unless the US commits to doing it.
Perhaps things will change under SecState Pompeo, but it may be too late for the people of Afrin. Things look grim there.
Europe depends on Turkey for a lot of food supply. They are hard pressed to strongly sanction them.
EU? Dependency to the Death of the Nation?
They must see the forest through the trees in order to survive. Socialists never do.
Not a problem I can handle it ... usually.
My friends who live there spell it Efrin.
Grim? Yes, but I can assure you that from what I know, the Turks are going to bleed very deeply getting it done.
The Roman Army, crushing restistance, same as before.
So is Turkey’s theft of the Afrin/Efrin area a faint accompli?

Bull. Turkey got used to get away with everything since after WWII using blackmail of promising to sell out to Stalin at the time making US and NATO to overlook their transgressions all the time.
Times has changed but Turkey don’t and how can they get away with it is a mystery but I thing old habit to tolerate anything from them dies hard.

Kurdish tactics aren’t helping their cause.

They are basically using prepubescent Marxists for cannon fodder.
Boys and girls believe they are fighting Turks but indiscriminately kill Arab civilians instead providing propaganda material for the Turks to win hearts and minds.
Turkey is going well beyond the previous limits of their bad behavior, that have existed during our lifetimes.

Not at all. Everybody does illegal war in Syria right now for own goals. Iran, US etc. How would you explain the Turks they can’t have a finger in a pie too? Erdogan would cry racism.
