#Syria, Aleppo Nth Jaish AL Thuwar says they enter Maryamin after expelling JAN

Jaish Al Thuwar has always advocated that there are no PKK or kurdish militias in their areas. Watch the video.

And many testimonies say that Jaish Thuwar have used 4 tanks and 1 machine gun 23, that they don’t have such equipts. This prove that PKK and their allies Jaish Al Thuwar were on the same frontline, and pictures of killed and numboer of killed in Afrin prove it.

#Syria, "Under A Scorching Sun” – A Report on the Recent Events in Raqqa Tell Abiad via VDC_Syria

Excerpts
1. The military forces of the People’s Protection Units and Euphrates Volcano Joint Operations Room, which conquered Tell Abiad city and its neighboring areas in June 2015, are responsible for the looting of dozens of houses, mostly owned by civilians with no connection to ISIS, namely in Ayn Issa, for supposed ties to ISIS and their alleged role in the looting of Kurdish  homes in 2013. Witnesses stated to VDC that most of those who were victims of the recent looting were civilian non-combatants with no military affiliation. In the rare case that a member of a family was known to have joined ISIS, this led to the punishment of the whole family.

2.People’s Protection Units and a number of other factions have arrested dozens of civilians under various pretexts, on top of which was alleged collaboration with and/or joining ISIS.  However, in dozens of cases, there was no mention of the reason for the arrest. Most de tainees were taken to Bawabah Prison in the city of Tell Abiad. A number of news sources  reported that the prison’s detainees are being transferred to the city of Ayn Arab/Kobanî for interrogation, but VDC was unable to verify the claim from other independent sources.

3.In Zahleh, near the villages of Shirean and Kherbet al-Rez, the joint forces gathered more than 180 people, all women and children, according to eyewitnesses and other sources.  The residents returned to their villages twenty days later after the joint forces had initially displaced them, forcing them to reside in neighboring villages like Buz al-Khanzir.

4.Several displaced residents have been prevented from returning to their villages due to the ongoing clashes beginning the end of June 2015. Villages include: Salouk, Abdi Kawi, al-Kalbah (al-Thawrah), Abu Kharaza  and some other villages to the west of Tell Abiad. Until  the time of writing this report, the joint forces controlling Tell Abiad Crossing, namely the  People’s Protections Units, were still preventing residents from returning to their villages and  cities. Turkish borders guards, for their part, said that they are ready to secure the way for the return of people, but Kurdish forces continue to refuse.

5.The joint forces, led by the People’s Protections Units, requested the residents of Doghaniya  to leave their homes as ISIS fighters approached their village (which consists of around 100  homes). The residents, accordingly, fled to another village controlled by ISIS.

6.The fighting between the Euphrates Volcano Joint Operation Room and the Islamic State  on the one hand, as well as air strikes by the US-led international coalition, which preceded  the deployment of those forces on the other hand, were the main reasons for most of the displacements in the eastern suburbs, the Salouk area and the city of Tell Abiad. Thousands of Arab citizens fled their villages  prior to the arrival of the forces, pushing the number of displaced to more than 23,000. However, it appears that the inciting media campaigns that preceded the battles also played a vital role in increasing the number of displaced. These campaigns were run by people affiliated with the YPG who were responsible for publishing wanted lists” in addition to threats to residents of certain villages, and/or by ISIS members  who warned residents of an advancing ‘infidel’ force hell-bent to slaughter and rape. Some  sources also reported to VDC that Kurdish units displaced a number of people from several  cities and villages, specifically at the beginning of July 2015. However, our center could not contact any resident in these villages, nor meet with any witness. Therefore, VDC may release another summary report in the event any witnesses become available.

7.Many of those interviewed by VDC spoke of the displacement of civilians from the predominantly Turkmen village of Hammam al-Turkmen. A large number of civilians (around 150) who were displaced from the village were being temporarily housed in a building in Akçakale. VDC attempted to speak with these people about their experiences, but was prevented from doing so by an influential group in Akçakale. However, the two witnesses who were met by our center denied that any party had displaced them. The witnesses also added that they fled their village due to the intensified clashes and air strikes of the US-led international coalition forces. Notwithstanding, several public sources have confirmed that hundreds of Turkmen families were forcibly displaced. Unfortunately, VDC could not verify this informa tion from the residents themselves.

#Syria, Al Hassakeh, YPG's massacre in Amouda 27/06/2013 #YPGWarcrimes

The situation in Amouda told by Syria Untold blog

Amuda shouts once again: He who kills his people is a traitor

(…) Kurdish Syrians in the city of Amuda in northeastern Syria are using the slogan once again; this time against the Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is the political wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Kafranbel message to the YPD on 28/06/2016

Amuda shouts once again: He who kills his people is a traitor

The event:

PYD forces recently arrested a group of activists who led the city’s nonviolent civil resistance movement, after charging them with a number of unfounded claims. In response, about 100 protesters held a sit-in on June 27 condemning the actions of the PYD, who they accused of denying people of their freedoms. They held signs with messages such as, “Amuda did not kneel to Assad, and will kneel to no one else” and “The regime occupied Qusair with the help of Hezbollah, and occupied Amuda with the help of the PKK.”

Throughout the Syrian revolution, the PYD has been accused of collaborating with the Assad regime, and has helped the regime silence the voices of members of the opposition, including the renowned Kurdish opposition figure Mashaal Tammo, who was shot dead early in the revolution.

The Kurdish militias opened fire onto this group of unarmed protesters, killing seven people and injuring more than 40. They also arrested a number of leaders of the Kurdish National Council (KNC). It was these actions that pushed the city’s Kurds to repeat, “He who kills his people is a traitor,” as they remembered the regime’s initial, violent response against Syrian protesters. Benkin, political activist in the Kurdish Yekiti Party in Syria, said to Syria Untold, “Regime forces never dared shoot at protesters in Amuda, but the PYD is trying to quell any civil movement that questions its authority in the city. The regime has succeeded in pushing areas of sectarian friction into civil war, and in pushing the Kurdish people into fighting one another.”

A nonviolent activist from Amuda, Sewar, said,We don’t want armed militias to monopolize the city, especially since they have clear ties to the Syrian regime.” The Amuda coordination committee, of which Sewar is a member, has played a major role in organizing the nonviolent opposition movement in the city. Rogine, a member of Shawishka, a Kurdish women’s group, said, “Not only do weapons remind us of the initial protest movement, and the way in which women were sidelined, they also eliminate the core of the civil Kurdish movement.”

The KNC, which represents all Kurdish political groups except the PYD, released a statement: “The PYD poses a regional threat. Carrying arms against these militias will only draw the Kurdish regime into a bloody struggle that will help no one. Kurdish youth must arm themselves only with organized, nonviolent protest.”

(…)

It was not only Amuda’s activists who protested the PYD’s actions. One June 28, a group of intellectual Kurds in the city of Qamishli held an anti-PYD protest in front of Qasmo Mosque. PYD militias attacked the demonstrators with sticks and knives, abusing them physically and verbally. They yelled at the protesters in Kurdish, saying, “Show us how you’re going to keep demonstrating.”

The event

Violations Perpetrated by Kurdish Groups

Early in 2012, government forces started withdrawing from Kurdish areas in northern and northeastern Syria with
only staying in vital centers. PKK (Turkey)’s PYD (Syria) took over Ifreen, Ain Al-Arab (Koubani), and Al-Jazira.
Al-Ashayes forces represent the internal security forces (Police) while the People Protection Units (Al-Aboujiya)
are the army.
SNHR documented many violation perpetrated in Kurds-held areas including extrajudicial killing and enforced
recruitment.
PYD Violations
A. Extrajudicial killing
SNHR documented the killing of no less than 14 children at the hands of the PYD forces.
On Friday 4 October, 2013, SNHR documented the killing of three children from Al-Hassaka – Al-Kahtaniya by a
PYD’s shelling that targeted Thyab village in Al-Hassaka countryside.
On Friday 27 June, 2013, PYD’s People Protection Units killed two children in Al-Hassaka – Amouda while they
were opening fire against a demonstration.

B. Recruitment
PYD recruits children extensively and not only male children but also female children. A number of the area resi
dents told SNHR that children participate in direct killings and also operates at military checkpoints. Since 2012,
The Kurdish groups have been training children extensively.
Mr Wesam Allou, a resident from Ifreen told SNHR:
“I was heading, along with other people, to Afreen, which is located in Aleppo northwestern countryside and
under the control of Kurdish forces. We stopped at one of their military checkpoints. A little girls, looked no
older than 15-year-old, was carrying a small rifle and came and talked to us in the Kurdish language. She asked
us to show our identifications and asked the driver to open the car trunk before she let us pass.”
On Monday 17 November, 2014, PYD forces arrested two brothers Zwya Mahmoud Mahmoud and Afien Mahmoud
Mahmoud from their school in Al-Hassaka city.

Conclusion :PYD forces perpetrated crimes that can be openly classified as war crimes such as indiscriminate
shelling and enforced-recruitment. All of these crimes violates the international humanitarian law
explicitly. The party, as an authority, must respect the international humanitarian law standards.
