DAY X: Turkish invasion imminent – Evaluation on the current developments regarding an upcoming Turkish Invasion

Brief overview of Turkey’s current attacks on Kurdistan

After the attack on Afrin (2018) and Serekaniye (2019), Erdogan announced a new military offensive against the Self-Administered Territories of Northern and Eastern Syria (Rojava) 10 days ago. The goal is to expand the 30KM deep “security zone” south of the Turkish state border. The day before yesterday these attack plans were specified: The self-governed area of Sehba, directly adjacent to Afrin and north of Aleppo, with the city of Tel Rifaat and the multi-ethnic, majority Arab major city of Minbic, east of Kobane, were named as targets. Tel Rifaat is home to tens of thousands of people displaced from Afrin. Another Turkish attack means a major humanitarian catastrophe for the region and severe suffering for the population. It implies a definite ethnic cleansing and a consolidation of the Turkish settlement policy. Both areas have already been shelled massively with artillery in recent weeks. The day before yesterday alone, over 300 artillery shells were fired at the Sehba region. In Tel Rifaat, there have been a total of 7 drone attacks this year, yesterday a gynecology clinic was hit, and in total there have already been over 30 attacks with combat drones on the self-administered areas of northern Syria this year.

We stand with the democratic society! RiseUp4Rojava’s perspectives on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

With our roots in the movement that built Rojava we stand firmly in solidarity with those who make up what Rêber Apo would define as “the democratic society”, or “the moral and political society”. These are the parts of society that resist the racist, patriarchal and state attacks made by capitalist modernity to homogenize the different peoples within our communities. The solidarity between the peoples that compose democratic society is one of the main pillars that built the Rojava revolution, as is self defense. If one’s community, the place where you have your roots and life is under attack, the democratic society has the right of self defense. This is paramount for our movement.
