NNSROJ: ڕێکخراوی لێبوردنی نێودەوڵەتی بە بڵاوکردنەوەی ڕاپۆرتێک، یەپەگەی بە وێرانکردنی ماڵی هەژمارێک لە عەرەب و تورکمانەکانی نێوان ڕەققا و حەسەکە و “ڕاگوازتنی زۆرەملیی هەزاران کەس” لەو گوندانە تۆمەتبار کردووە و ئەمەی وەک “تاوانی جەنگ” لەقەڵەم داوە. تۆمەتێک کە یەپەگە بە توندی ڕەتیدەکاتەوە.

ڕاپۆرتەکەی ئەمنێستی کە ڕۆژی سێشەممە، ١٣ی ئۆکتۆبر بڵاوکراوەتەوە، ئاکامی لێکۆڵینەوەیەکی مەیدانی “لامە فەقیه”، ڕاوێژکاری ژووری قەیرانی ڕێکخراوەکە لە ١٤ گوند و شارۆچکەری ڕۆژئاوای کوردستانە.

بە گوتەی فەقیە، چەندین گوندنشینی عەرەبی نیشتەجێی ئاواییەکانی هەڵکەوتوو لە نێوان شارەکانی حەسەکە و ڕەققا شایەتیان داوە کە ماڵەکانیان پاش دەرکرانی داعش، لە لایەن یەکینەکانی پاراستنی گەلەوە وێران کراوە و خۆشیان بەزۆرەملی کۆچێندراون.

ئەمنێستی لە ڕاپۆرتەکەیدا وەک نموونە، دیمەنی گوندێک بە ناوی “حوسێنییە”ی بڵاوکردۆتەوە و بە بەرواردکردنی دوو دیمەنی ساڵی ٢٠١٤ تا ٢٠١٥ لە ئاسمانەوە، بەو ئاکامە گەیشتووە کە سەدا ٩٤ی گوندەکە وێران بووە.

ئەوە لەکاتێکدایە کە بە گوێرەی ڕاپۆرتەکەش، ئەو گوندە لە عەمەلیاتێکی یەکینەکانی پاراستنی گەل بە پشتیوانیی ئاسمانیی فڕۆکە شەڕکەرەکانی ئەمریکا و پاش بۆمبارانێکی خەست لە چەنگی داعش دەرهێنراوە.

یەکێک لە شایەتحاڵان کە ئێستا لە کەمپێکی پەنابەران لە تورکیایە، بە ڕێپۆرتێری ڕێکخراوی لێبوردنی نێودەوڵەتی گوتووە کە لە گوندەکەی ئێمە تەنیا بەشێک لە خەڵکەکە لایەنگری داعش بوون بەڵام پاش دەرکرانی داعش، “شەڕڤانانی کورد”، ماڵەکانیان ئاگرتێبەرداوە و پاشان بە شۆڤڵ وێرانیان کردوون.

ڕێکخراوەکە دەڵێ “یەپەگەی هاوپەیمانی ئەمریکا” بۆ تۆڵەسەندنەوە لەو بنەماڵانە کە لایەنگری داعشیان کردووە، ئەو گوندانەی وێرانکردووە و سزادانی بەکۆمەڵی خەڵک قبووڵ ناکرێ. تۆمەتێک کە “جوان ئیبڕاهیم”، بەرپرسی گشتیی هێزەکانی ئاسایش لە ڕۆژئاوای کوردستان، بەتوندی ڕەتیدەکاتەوە.

جوان ئیبڕاهیم بە ئامادەکاری ڕاپۆرتەکەی ئەمنێستی ڕاگەیاندووە کە تەنیا ٢٥ بنەماڵە، ئەویش بۆ پاراستنی ژیانی خۆیان لە بەرانبەر هێرشە تیرۆریستییەکاندا لە کاتی بەرەبەرەی ئازادکردنی ئەو شوێنانەدا، لە گوندەکانیان دوورخراونەتەوە و بە کۆتاییهاتنی شەڕ و ئۆپێراسیۆنە سەربازییەکان، بۆیان هەبووە بگەڕێنەوە زێدی خۆیان.

هاوکات ڕێدوور خەلیل، وتەبێژیی یەکینەکانی پاراستنی گەلیش، وێڕای بە چەواشەکارانە و نادروست وەسفکردنی ڕاپۆرتەکەی ئەمنێستی ئینتێرناشناڵ، دەڵێ داعش هەرجار کە شوێنێکی بەجێهێشتووە، هەژمارێکی زۆر بۆمب و تەڵەی تەقێنەری لەناو گوندەکاندا چاندووە و هێزەکانی ئێمە بۆ پاراستنی گیانی هاووڵاتییان و پێشگرتن لە ئەگەری برینداربوون یا کوژرانیان، خەڵکی سڤیلیان لە بەرەکانی شەڕ دوورکردۆتەوە.

ڕێدوور خەلیل هەروەها گوتوویەتی کە لە کاتی ئازادکردنی شار و گوندەکاندا شەڕی زۆر دژوار دەقەومن، سەیارە و بۆمبی چێنراو دەتەقنەوە، چەکی جۆربەجۆری قورس و سووک بەکاردەبردرێن، بۆمبارانی ئاسمانیی دەکرێ و هتد، لەو وەزعەدا باشترین کاری کە یەپەگە لە دەستی دێ ئەوەیە کە خەڵکی سڤیل، ژنان و مناڵان و بنەماڵەکان لە شوێنی شەڕ دووربکاتەوە.

لامە فەقیە، ڕاوێژکار و ڕێپۆرتێری ئەمنێستی دەڵی کە پاساواهێنانە بۆ کۆچپێکردنی زۆرەملیی خەڵک، پێشێلکاری یاسا نێودەوڵەتییەکانە و داوای لە بەرپرسانی ڕێوەبەریی خۆسەریی ڕۆژئاوای کوردستان و هاپەیمانە نێودەوڵەتییەکانی کردووە کە کردەوەی لەم چەشنە ئەنجام نەدەن و کۆچێندراوەکان بگەڕێننەوە زێدی خۆیان و قەرەبوویان بکەنەوە.

د. کامڕان مەتین، مامۆستای زانکۆی ساسێکسی بریتانیا و پسپۆری پێوەندییە نێودەوڵەتییەکان، کە لە نزیکەوە ڕووداوەکانی ڕۆژئاوای کوردستان تاقیب دەکا، لەمبارەوە نووسیویەتی کە ئەو تۆمەتانە، ناوبانگی جیهانی ئەزموونی ڕۆژئاوا خەوشدار دەکەن و هەر بۆیە پەیەدە دەبێ سەرنج بداتە ئەو ڕاپۆرتە و وڵامی ڕوون و وردی پێبداتەوە.

ناوبراو هەروەها بە لەبەرچاوگرتنی هەندێک تێبینی، گومان دەخاتە سەر ڕاپۆرتەکە و دەڵێ کە “لەکاتێکدا کە ڕاپۆرتەکە باس لە پێکەوەژیانی ئاشتیانەی عەرەب و تورکمان لە ناو دڵی ناوچە کوردنشینەکان دەکات، پێدەچێ ئەو تۆمەتانەی ئەمنێستی ئاماژەی پێکردوون بە شێوەی سیستماتیک ئەنجام نەدرابن”.

مەتین هەروەها پێی وایە کە دژوارە مرۆڤ تەنیا لە ڕێگەی دیمەنی سەتەلاتەوە بەو ئاکامە بگات کە ئەو گوندانە نەک لە ئاکامی شەڕ لە کاتی ئازادکراندا و بە بۆمبارانە ئاسمانییەکان، بەڵکوو لە لایەن یەپەگەوە وێران کرابن.

ئەو بانگەشانەی رێکخراوی لێبوردنی نێودەوڵەتی لەکاتێکدایە کە عەرەب، ئاسووری و تورکمانەکانی کانتۆنی جزیرێ، بەشدارییەکی بەهێزیان لە بەڕێوەبەریی سڤیل و دەزگا ئەمنی و ئاسایشییەکانی ئەو کانتۆنەی ڕۆژئاوای کوردستاندا هەیە تا ئەو ڕادە کە هاوسەرۆکی کانتۆنی جزیرێ، هەژمارێک لە وەزیران، جێگری دەزگای قانوونساز، سەرۆکی دەستەی مافی مرۆڤی کانتۆن و هتد عەرەبن.

شیاوی ئاماژەکردنە کە هەر لەم حەوتوویەشدا، هاوپەیمانییەکی تر لە نێوان هێزە کورد، عەرەب، ئاسووری و تورکمانەکانی ڕۆژئاوا بە چاودێری ئەمریکا ڕاگەیاندرا.

    Kamran Matin

    این اتهامی بسیار جدیست و آوازه جهانی تجربه روژاوا را خدشه دار میكند. پ.ی.د باید پاسخی دقیق به این گزارش ارائه كند. اما تا آنزمان جا دارد چند نكته را مد نظر قرار داد:
    ١. گزارش میگوید كه شاهد همزیستی مسالمت آمیز روستاهای عمدتا عرب و تركمن نشین در قلب مناطق عمدتا كردنشین نیز بوده است. این دال بر نظاممند نبودن جرائمی است كه عفو بین الملل ثبت كرده است (بر فرض صحت آنها).
    ٢. دیروز ائتلاف جدیدی از نیروهای كرد، عرب، تركمن، آسوری و دیگر اقلیتهای منطقه تشكیل شد. بسیاری از این نیروها بیش از یكسال است با ی.پ.گ همكاری دارند. صحت این گزارش به این معنیست كه جرائم ذكر شده علیه روستاهای عرب نشین با اطلاع و\یا حضور نیروهای عرب سنی ضد داعش در همان منطقه صورت گرفته است – امریكه حداقل پرسش برانگیز است.
    ٣. گزارشگران تنها از ١٤ روستا در یك منطقه به وسعت چندین هزار كیلومتر مربع بازدید كرده اند. عكسهای ماهواره ای وضعیت یك روستا را پیش و پس از آزادسازی آن از تصرف داعش نشان میدهد. عملیات آزادسازی این روستاها بر اساس تمامی گزارشها با حملات هوایی نیروهای ائتلاف همراه بوده است. تشخیص اینكه ویرانی ناشی از بمباران بوده و یا تخریب توسط ی.پ.گ پس از آزادسازی روستا تنها بر اساس عكسهای هوایی نمیتواند كار آسانی باشد.
    هیچیك از اینها به معنای نادرستی قطعی مفاد گزارش نیست و پ.ی.د طبعا باید به آن پاسخی رسمی و دقیق ارائه دهد.

    Syria: US ally’s razing of villages amounts to war crimes

    13 October 2015, 18:18 UTC

    A fact-finding mission to northern Syria has uncovered a wave of forced displacement and home demolitions amounting to war crimes carried out by the Autonomous Administration led by the Syrian Kurdish political party Partiya Yekîtiya Demokrat (PYD) controlling the area, said Amnesty International in a report published today. The Autonomous Administration is a key ally, on the ground, of the US-led coalition fighting against the armed group calling itself the Islamic State (IS) in Syria.

    ‘We had nowhere else to go’: Forced displacement and demolitions in northern Syria reveals evidence of alarming abuses, including eyewitness accounts and satellite images, detailing the deliberate displacement of thousands of civilians and the razing of entire villages in areas under the control of the Autonomous Administration, often in retaliation for residents’ perceived sympathies with, or ties to, members of IS or other armed groups.

    “By deliberately demolishing civilian homes, in some cases razing and burning entire villages, displacing their inhabitants with no justifiable military grounds, the Autonomous Administration is abusing its authority and brazenly flouting international humanitarian law, in attacks that amount to war crimes,” said Lama Fakih, Senior Crisis Advisor at Amnesty International.

    “In its fight against IS, the Autonomous Administration appears to be trampling all over the rights of civilians who are caught in the middle. We saw extensive displacement and destruction that did not occur as a result of fighting. This report uncovers clear evidence of a deliberate, co-ordinated campaign of collective punishment of civilians in villages previously captured by IS, or where a small minority were suspected of supporting the group.”

    Some civilians said they were threatened with US-led coalition airstrikes if they failed to leave.

    Amnesty International researchers visited 14 towns and villages in al- Hasakeh and al-Raqqa governorates in July and August 2015, to investigate the forced displacement of residents and demolition of homes in areas under the control of the Autonomous Administration.

    Satellite images obtained by Amnesty International illustrate the scale of the demolitions in Husseiniya village, in Tel Hamees countryside. The images show 225 buildings standing in June 2014 but only 14 remaining in June 2015 – a shocking reduction of 93.8%.

    In February 2015, the Autonomous Administration’s military wing, the YPG (the People’s Protection Units), took control of the area, which had been under IS control, and began demolitions, displacing villagers. Researchers visiting Husseiniya saw ruins of destroyed homes and interviewed eyewitnesses.

    “They pulled us out of our homes and began burning the home… they brought the bulldozers… They demolished home after home until the entire village was destroyed,” said one witness.

    In villages south of the town of Suluk, some residents said YPG fighters had accused them of supporting IS and threatened to shoot them if they did not leave. While in some cases residents acknowledged that there had been a handful of IS supporters in their villages the majority were not supporters of the group.

    In other cases, villagers said YPG fighters had ordered them to leave threatening them with US coalition airstrikes if they failed to comply.

    “They told us we had to leave or they would tell the US coalition that we were terrorists and their planes would hit us and our families,” said one resident, Safwan.

    The YPG has justified the forced displacement of civilians by saying it was necessary for the civilians’ own protection or militarily necessary.

    “It is critical that the US-led coalition fighting IS in Syria and all other states supporting the Autonomous Administration, or co-ordinating with it militarily, do not turn a blind eye to such abuses. They must take a public stand condemning forced displacement and unlawful demolitions and ensure their military assistance is not contributing to violations of international humanitarian law,” said Lama Fakih.

    In one particularly vicious attack, YPG fighters poured petrol on a house, threatening to set it alight while the inhabitants were still inside.

    “They started pouring fuel in my in-laws’ house. My mother-in-law was there refusing to leave and they just poured it around her…They found my father-in-law and began hitting him on his hands… I said, ‘Even if you burn my house I will get a tent and pitch it.This is in my place. I will stay in my place,” said Bassma.

    Although the majority of residents affected by these unlawful practices are Arabs and Turkmen, in some cases, for example in the mixed town of Suluk, Kurdish residents have also been barred by the YPG and Asayish, the Autonomous Administration’s police force, from returning to their homes. Elsewhere, for example in Abdi Koy village, a small number of Kurdish residents have also been forcibly displaced by the YPG.

    In an interview with Amnesty International, the head of the Asayish admitted civilians had been forcibly displaced but dismissed these as “isolated incidents”. The spokesperson for the YPG repeated claims that civilians were being moved for their own security.
    However, many residents said they were forced to leave even though their villages had not been the site of clashes, or were at a distance from the frontline and there was no danger from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) laid by IS. Forcibly displacing civilians without imperative military necessity is a violation of international humanitarian law.

    “The Autonomous Administration must immediately stop the unlawful demolition of civilian homes, compensate all civilians whose homes were unlawfully destroyed, cease unlawful forced displacements, and allow civilians to return and rebuild,” said Lama Fakih.

    YPG: Uluslararası Af Örgütü yalan söylüyor!

    Uluslararası Af Örgütü, Suriye’deki Kürt birliklerinin DAİŞ’ten geri aldığı köylerde halkı zorla yerinden ettiğini ve evleri yıktığını öne sürdü. Ancak YPG, Af Örgütü’nü yalanlayarak, can güvenliklerini sağlamak adına çok az sayıda sivilin bölgeden uzaklaştırıldığını açıkladı.

    Uluslararası Af Örgütü’nün dün açıklanan raporunda Haseke ve Rakka’ya bağlı YPG kontrolündeki bölgede bazı köy ve kasabaların tamamen yerle bir edildiği, binlerce kişinin de göçe zorlandığı iddia etti. Raporunda kaynak olarak 37 tanığın anlatımlarını ve uydu görüntülerini gösteren Af Örgütü, YPG güçlerinin ‘savaş suçu’ işlediğini öne sürdü.

    YPG suçlamalara yanıt verdi

    Uluslararası Af Örgütü konuyla ilgili YPG güçlerine bağlı Asayiş Müdürü Ciwan İbrahim ve YPG Sözcüsü Redur Xelîl’le de görüştü. Suçlamaları reddeden YPG güçlerine bağlı Asayiş Müdürü Ciwan İbrahim, bazı istisnai durumlarda sınırlı sayıda ailelenin bölgeden uzaklaştırıldığını söyledi. Ciwan İbrahim Af Örgütü’ne şu bilgileri verdi: “Bazı tehlikeli bölgelerde istisnai vakalar yaşandı. Terörist tehdit nedeniyle uzaklaştırılan aile sayısı çok az. Rojava’da yalnızca 25 aile kantonu terk etmeye zorlandı. Onlara ‘Lütfen eşyalarınızı toplayıp buradan ayrılın, savaş bitene kadar buradan ayrılmanız iyi bir şey’ denildi. Rakka’da teröristler var ve onların aileleri, amcaları, kardeşleri burada. İletişim halindeler ve aileler onlara bilgi veriyor. Biz bu aileleri uzaklaştırmak zorundayız. Gözaltına almıyoruz, tutuklamıyoruz. Uzaklaştırıyoruz. Bölgenin dışına çıkarıyoruz.”

    Suçlamaların gerçekle ilgisi yok

    YPG Sözcüsü Redur Xelîl de Af Örgütü’nün raporunda yer alan suçlamaları kabul etmediklerini vurgulayarak, denetimlerindeki bölgelerde Türkmen ve Arap sivilleri yerinden etme gibi bir politikanın sözkonusu olmadığını söyledi. Savaş suçu işlendiğine dair iddiaların gerçekle ilgisinin bulunmadığını kaydeden Redur Xelîl, sivillerin can güvenliği için bölgenin boşaltıldığını belirtti. Xelîl bu uygulamayla çatışmalarda sivil kaybını önlemeyi ve DAİŞ’in bazı yerlere yerleştirdiği bubi tuzakları ve bombalardan yaralanmalarını engellemeyi hedeflediklerini vurguladı.

    DAİŞ saldırırsa kim sorumlu tutulacak?

    “DAİŞ onlara saldırırsa sorumlu kim tutulacak?” diye soran YPG Sözcüsü, şunları söyledi: “Orada çatışmalar olduğunda ateş ediliyor, arabalar patlatılıyor, hava operasyonları yapılıyor. Her türlü silah kullanılıyor. En doğru çözüm sivilleri durum iyileşene kadar uzaklaştırmak. Askeri olarak başka bir çözüm yok. Ayrıca o bölgede binlerce bubi tuzağı ve bomba var. Aileleri, kadınları, çocukları bu kadar bubi tuzağından nasıl koruyacaksınız?”

    Türkiye’nin söylemlerini hatırlatıyor

    YPG Sözcüsü, bu suçlamaların DAİŞ’e verdiği destek belgelerle tescilli olan Türkiye’nin anti propagandalarını hatırlattığını da ekledi.

    YPG General Commander Hemo on Amnesty Report
    October 15, 2015
    We saw the report of the Amnesty International. I can tell you that the timing and wording of this report is a bit suspicious. At a time when we are forming a new alliance with Syrian pro-democracy forces, and getting ready to wage a big war against ISIS this report is released. Report comes right after the coalition forces are giving us a significant aid. Hard to think it is all a matter of coincidence.
    We call on the international community and the United States as well not to take this report serious. Because this is not what is happening on the ground. But again we are officially calling on independent bodies to come and see what is going on the ground.
    Now, let me be clear; we have liberated some 1500 Arab villages. Some of this villages became war zones between us and ISIS. Battles took days in some villages. I am not saying there has been no harm to those villages. But they are not more than 4 or 5 villages. We have 1500 Arab villages liberated and people in them live in peace now. If it was true, why are these 1500 villages still standing? Apart from that, there are Arabs who were brought to Rojava by the Baathist regime and settled throughout the Kurds’ lands. These Arabs too in Jazira are leading respected lives. If we had an intention of driving Arabs away, we would have driven those Arabs first. I think whoever is discontent with ISIS defeats has some share in this report because we have success against ISIS. And all the world sees our effectiveness and success over this terrorist group. We have proved in practice, in liberating Rojava regions too.
    One more point, 30% of YPG made up of Arabs. If allegation in the report were true did these Arabs with us committed those atrocities too? If such things were true, would they fight alongside us in Jazira and Kobane? We believe such reports want to harm our image. In our opinion, Syrian National Coalition and forces behind it has a lot to do with this. Because, at the start, for example, they couldn’t digest our liberation of Tal Abyad. So they have been spreading such rumors on purpose. But we will continue our struggle for democracy in Syria in the face of all accusations, off all such things they want to square us with. And we are open to accountability. We are respectful to human rights. Any independent body can come and investigate. We are liberating 1500 Arab villages, this report should have thanked us. We have liberated so many people. We liberated Shengal [Sinjar] and many Yezidi women. There are other interests in this report. Our units are here, anyone can come and investigate and talk to Arabs and Turkomens as well.

    A senior employee of Amnesty International has undeclared private links to men alleged to be key players in a secretive network of global Islamists, The Times can reveal.
    The charity was unaware that the husband of its director of faith and human rights featured in documents released after a criminal trial at which connections were revealed between British supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and Arab Islamists accused of plotting to overthrow a Gulf state.

    YPG General Commander Hemo on Syrian Democratic Force, US Weapons & Amnesty Report

    In an exclusive interview, Sipan Hemo, General Commander of the YPG comments on variety of issues. Below are the large summary of his remarks:

    After the Russian intervention the balance of power has changed, actors have changed. This happened a bit quickly. The change is also reflected on the ground. Large assaults and fierce battles are now taking place around Hama and Idlib. Regime forces are being air covered by Russian warplanes. And around Aleppo, ISIS is taking the advantage and making territorial progress against so called moderate Islamist factions or FSA brigades. So these Islamist forces are now face to face with a breakdown in terms of morale, as they are losing territory. It is not clear whether they can recover or completely be defeated. It is clear though that opposition forces have now unfortunately received a huge blow by this Russian intervention and ISIS’s taking advantage of it around Aleppo. ISIS is capturing more villages as I speak to you in those areas.

    12141720_1015263031828626_4725191811153476682_n

    ***

    Our units, as you know, have actually been, for the last two months, in conflict with some Islamist factions including Ahrar-ash Sham and Jabhat al Nusra. But the new situation has led to a declination of these forces that have been attacking us. However, we are not willing to take advantage of this situation because we do not wish to see the opposition forces get weaker or lose more ground.

    ***

    In fact, there have been claims made in our name. Many times, journalists ask what side we are on. I want to make this clear that from the very start of the Syrian revolution we didn’t want to take sides with anyone. We have a stance of our own. We name this as the third road. We formulated this idea as being on our own side. We have our own solutions and projects to propose. Secondly, our war against ISIS bought about a new situation. It has enabled relations and cooperation with the US-led coalition. And for the last past we are effectively cooperating with the Coalition.

    12112159_1014986811856248_6347616519186977416_n

    When it comes to interventions, I can tell that people of Syria is not to be blamed. Unfortunately the war going on in Syria is about the international and regional powers’ interests. They are responsible. Both global powers and regional states like Turkey, Saudi, Qatar and Iran are responsible. They shed Syrian blood. So in response to this question I say, to stop the bloodshed and for the advancement of democracy in Syria, all powers should share responsibility. When asked whom we work with, I say it clearly, we have been fighting ISIS officially in cooperation with the coalition for a year. And our work together has made even more progress.

    ***

    The number of weapons airdropped to SDF was a limited. It was not an amount that can make a big strategic differences on the ground. But we see this as very important. It is important to us as YPG. Because with this new support, the cooperation we have had for a year has reached a new level. And we hope to increase our work together even more, we hope to work strategically. So what we received was not big. But it is big for a new start.

    11249909_1009613475726915_3193602077645082307_n

    As far as the structure of the SFD concerned, we hope that YPG spearhead that assault. YPG has a significant role to play. It is a long time that we have been fighting ISIS. In Syria, as you know, many factions have been formed. And they have been defeated in the face of ISIS. FSA, some other Islamist groups, etc. have been defeated. So at the end, the train & equip program too didn’t work. But on the other hand YPG has proven to be successful. Yes there were other groups fighting ISIS but with little success. So at a time when Syria was passing through most turbulent times, we got closer to some groups to form a new force, a bigger one, one that can serve all Syrians that can play a role for democracy in Syria. So this new force, Syrian Democratic Forces include all communities of Syria. It includes Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians and Turkomens and… in the coming days there will be a declaration in front of the press. We hope this becomes a new start, a new step. At the same time we call upon everyone who believes in democracy for Syria, who believes in Syrian nation, to join SDF for the sake of democracy and to stand against and fight extremist forces like ISIS and give a calm country back to Syrians.

    ***

    The media and journalists write many things about Raqqa and Jarablus. We have military plans, and these plans are confidential. As the general commander of YPG, I can’t disclose them to you. On the grounds, when opportunities arise, we act accordingly. Politicians may speculate about where next we should go, but from military perspective, we on the ground act according to chances we have. So what we plan, we have revealed before, we will fight ISIS. Where the attack and when to launch these attacks depend on the circumstances on the ground…

    Now, let me be clear; we have liberated some 1500 Arab villages. Some of this villages became war zones between us and ISIS. Battles took days in some villages. I am not saying there has been no harm to those villages. But they are not more than 4 or 5 villages. We have 1500 Arab villages liberated and people in them live in peace now. If it was true, why are these 1500 villages still standing? Apart from that, there are Arabs who were brought to Rojava by the Baathist regime and settled throughout the Kurds’ lands. These Arabs too in Jazira are leading respected lives. If we had an intention of driving Arabs away, we would have driven those Arabs first. I think whoever is discontent with ISIS defeats has some share in this report because we have success against ISIS. And all the world sees our effectiveness and success over this terrorist group. We have proved in practice, in liberating Rojava regions too.

    One more point, 30% of YPG made up of Arabs. If allegation in the report were true did these Arabs with us committed those atrocities too? If such things were true, would they fight alongside us in Jazira and Kobane? We believe such reports want to harm our image. In our opinion, Syrian National Coalition and forces behind it has a lot to do with this. Because, at the start, for example, they couldn’t digest our liberation of Tal Abyad. So they have been spreading such rumors on purpose. But we will continue our struggle for democracy in Syria in the face of all accusations, off all such things they want to square us with. And we are open to accountability. We are respectful to human rights. Any independent body can come and investigate. We are liberating 1500 Arab villages, this report should have thanked us. We have liberated so many people. We liberated Shengal [Sinjar] and many Yezidi women. There are other interests in this report. Our units are here, anyone can come and investigate and talk to Arabs and Turkomens as well.

    Arab tribes in Rojava say Amnesty International distorts the truths
    16 October 2015 Featured News, News, Rojava

    arab tribes rojavaRuspîs Assembly of Arab Tribes in Cizîr Canton has condemned the Amnesty International over its report on alleged “forced displacement and home demolitions suffered by civilians under the de facto control of the Autonomous Administration led by the Partiya Yekîtiya Demokrat (Democratic Union Party, PYD)”.

    The Assembly said the Amnesty International report was partial and based on a lie distorting the truths.

    Ruspîs Assembly of Arab Tribes – which include El-Cihêş, El-Begara, El-Niêm, El-Şerabî ve El-Şemer- and Îshaq Ezîz and Tony Kîso on behalf of the Syriac people held a joint press conference in Himo village of Qamishlo and strongly condemned the report involving heavy insults against the YPG.

    The press release, read by the Assembly’s official spokesperson Eyad Mihemed El-Dexîl, underlined that; “Amnesty International has grounded its report on sources that want to eliminate the love and co-existence among all social circles of the region and replace it with enmity.”

    The joint statement recalled that the Amnesty International report dated 12 October, 2015 highlighted a series of alleged abuses and war crimes such as “forced displacement, demolitions and confiscation of civilian property”.

    ‘WE STRONGLY CONDEMN THE REPORT BY AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’

    Describing the mentioned allegations on the forced displacement of Arab people by YPG-YPJ forces as a lie far from reality, the Ruspîs Assembly of Arab Tribes in Cizîr Canton strongly condemned the report, and underlined that; “The Arab, Kurdish, Christian and Êzidî peoples in our region have been living together in peace and mutual trust for centuries. They share each other’s sorrow and joy, and everyone has their rights.”

    The statement stressed that Amnesty International should have rather talked to the people in the region about the incidents if they really aimed to learn about the reality there. It also noted that the Assembly of Arab Tribes have talked to the region’s people about the allegations, who also refuted the claims mentioned in the report.

    Recalling previous reports by some media organisations that voiced similar accusations against YPG-YPJ forces, the Assembly said the local people had once again refuted those allegations and described them as a lie when they were asked about their trueness.

    “For instance, we had previously received reports that YPG-YPJ and asayish (publis security) forces had expelled our Arab brothers and sisters from Mount Kizwan. As the Begara tribe and Ruspîs, we formed a delegation and visited the YPG-YPJ forces. During a meeting that lasted for four hours, we discussed about the allegations. We later talked to the people as well. After our talks, we decided to ensure the discharge of our people from the area of Mount Kizwan because it was witnessing heavy clashes with ISIS gangs and the people there had no security of life as the enemies were not discriminating between civilians and combatants while they launched attacks. This is a reality. Amnesty International should obtain information from the source itself and have it confirmed. YPG-YPJ forces faced similar baseless allegations also when our Assyrian brothers and sisters migrated from villages in Xabur region. However, the truth revealed itself when we talked to the local people who told that ISIS gangs had forced them to migrate and demolished their houses.”

    ‘IT IS NOT YPG BUT ISIS GANGS THAT RUIN THE REGION’

    Confirming the presence of a demolition suffered during the war and conflict in the region, the Assembly said this was however caused by not YPG-YPJ forces as is claimed by Amnesty International, but by ISIS gangs. “It is known by everyone that ISIS gangs blow up houses and lands and lay mines while fleeing an area. This is a reality that has been witnessed in many regions of Syria and Iraq. Amnesty International has grounded its report on sources that want to eliminate the love and co-existence among all social circles and replace it with enmity.”

    ‘AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL BASED ON FICTIONAL CHARACTERS’

    Defining the so-called sources mentioned by Amnesty International as “fictional characters”, the Assembly underlined that Arabs, Kurds, Christians and Êzidîs in the region came to terms on unity and fraternity at the very beginning.

    Daxuyaniya Fermandariya Giştî ya YPG
    Created on Friday, 16 October 2015 17:43 | Print | Email | Hits: 123

    Ji bo çapemenî û rayagiştî!

    Sernav û hundirê raporê ” Koçkirina bi zorê û wêrankirina malan li bakûrê Sûriyeyê” nakok e û rastiya rêxistinê dixe gumanan.
    -Hincetên sereke yên redkirinê:

    -Tiştên di hundirê raporê de bi sernavê wê re nakok in, ev têrê dikin ku vala were derxistin û kesên amade kirine werin cezakirin.

    -Tewanbariyên hatine kirin ne li gorî qanûna navnetewî ya sûcên şer a bingehîn li Romayê ya Dadgeha Cezayên Navnetewî.
    Hincetên ku piştgirya hinceta me dikin:
    -Tewanbarî bêyî belgeyî pêwîst hatine kirin.
    -Tenê gotinên xelkê baş şahidiya bûyeran nekirine esas hatine girtin, gotin û çîrokên hatin gotin nehatine piştrastkirin.
    -Hin kesên ku şahidî kirine endamên rêxistinên terorîst in û di şer de sûcên li dijî mirovahiyê pêk anîne.
    -Daxuyaniyên YPG’ê hemû raporê ji serî heta binî vala derdixin.
    -Kesên rapor nivîsandine dema ku amade dikirin mêhvanên aliyên siyasî yên li dijî Rêveberiya Xweser û Yekîneyên Parsatina Gel bûn, ev kes ne serbixwe ne.
    PÊŞGOTIN
    Rêxistina Lêborînê ya Nanetewî di 12’ê cotmeh 2015’an de, raporek di bin navê “Koçberkirin û hilweşandina malan li Sûriyeyê” de derxist û têde herêmên Rêveberiya Xweser ku bi Rojava tê naskirin, nîşan dide. Rêxistina Lêborînê di rapora xwe de diyar dike ku wan destûra xwe ji Rêveberiya Xweser wergirtibûn û bêyî ku têklîdarî kar û xebatên wan bibe, gerên xwe pêk anîne.
    Agahiyên di raporê de hatine belavkirin ji hin welatiyên gundê ku îdîaya koçberkirinê, hilweşandin û şewitandina malan têde rûdane û ji wêneyên satellitan, hatine wergirtin. Lê di naveroka raporê de gelek şaştî hene û agahiyên ji hin welatiyan hatine wergirtin li hev nayên. Dibe ku Rêxistinê nikaribû xwe bigihîne rastiyan. Hin şaştiyên ku eşkere ne ku rastiya raporên Rêxistinê dixe gumanekê ev in:
    Rûpel 5 paragraf 1 rêz 3
    Di vir de têgîna “koçberkirin” bê zanebûn hatiye bikaranîn û bikaranîna wê di paragrafa (D) ya madeya 7 ya sîstema Roma de ku di Dadgeha Sûcdariyê ya Navnetewî de bingeh e, di ber çavan re nehatiye derbaskirin. Li gorî navaroka raporê bikaranîna vê têgînê, ne li gorî pîvanên paragrafa (D) ya madeya 7 ji sîstema Roma ku di Dadgeha Sûcdariyê ya Navnetewî de bingeh e, ye. li ser vê yekê tewambarkirina Yekîneyên Parastina Gel bi sûcdariya “sûca şer” ne rast e û pêdivî bi rastkirinê heye.
    Rûpel 6, paragraf 4, rêz 2
    “… tiştên rûdane ne li gorî pêwîstiyên leşkerî bûn ku nikaribûn xwe jê bidin aliyekî.”
    Di raporê de gelek rewşên ku têde diyar dibe li herêmê şer û pevçûnên dijwar bi çekên giran ji herdu aliyên dijber ve, her wiha rêjîmê jî gelek deverên herêmê bi bermîlên bombeyî, top û fûzeyên Skodhatine bikaranîn, rûdane. Ev yek têrê dike ku hemû malên li van deveran ku ji heriyê hatine avakirin bêne hilweşandin.
    Rûpel 8, paragraf 4, rêz 6
    “… Rêxistina DAIŞ’ê bi topan êrîş kir.”
    Ev yek jî nîşan dide ku li herêmê şer û pevçûnên leşkerî rû didan, çeteyên DAIŞ’ê bi topan êrîşî gundan kiriye. Di vir de her wiha diyar dibe ku berpirsyarê van destdirêjiyan û koçberkirinê rêxistina DAIŞ’ê ye.
    Rûpela 11- movika 1
    “Mezintirîn şerê di navbera Artêşa Sûriyê ya Azad û Komên çekdar ku ji Ehrar El-Şam û Lîwaa 11 û Firsan El-Sina pêk hatin…..”
    Yekîneyên me di sbata 2014’an ne ketin gundê Hesîniyê ku wê demê di bin dagirkiriya komên terîrost debe, lê belê piştî karê erka xwe ya şerê li dijî çeteyan bi navê bersivdayîn û belavkirinê pêk anîn vegeriyan cihê xwe.
    Ev nîşaneya wê ye ku li herêmê şerekî mezin di navbera gelek aliyan de hebû, şerê li herêmê hate jiyankirin ku li kîjan gundî pêk hatiba bes dike wî bi tevahî wêran bike.
    Rûpela 11- Herdû movikên dawî
    “Welatiyekî bi gotina xwe ya dibêje sê zilamên ji gund bi rêxistinê re (DAIŞ) di nava têkiliyê de bûn….”
    “…… DAIŞ’ê dema gund xistin destê xwe 4 yan 5 malên gund rûxandin.”
    Ev yek têkiliya hin şêniyên gund bi çeteyên DAIŞ’ê re di nava çalakiyên leşkerî de bûn, bi vê yekê kesên behsa wan hate kirin aramanceke rewaye li gorî raporê. ” rûpela 6’an- Movika 4- xeza duyemîn” Her wiha li gorî movika (d) ji madeya 7’an ji rêziknameya Roma ya Serke ya Dadgeha Cinaî ya Navdewletî.
    Di movika dawî ya heman rûpelê de jî diyar dibe ku DAIŞ’ê di her şerekî de mal ruxandine, bê guman jî di dema şer de wê welatiyî ranewestin, lê belê dê bi daxwaza xwe û ji tirsa li ser ewlekariya xwe ji herêmê derkevin.
    Rûpela 12-Movika 2-xêza 3
    “….Me dît malên me hatin ruxandin…Em nizanin kê ev yek kiriye…..”
    Ev yek nîşan dide ku heta kesên wekî şahidan axivîne gotinên xwe li ser texmînan gotine û tiştek bi çavên xwe ne dîtene.
    Rûpela 12’an- Movika 6’an- xeta 6’an
    “…JI destpêka şerê çekdar me malên xwe terik kirin…..”
    Ev zelal nîşan dide ku welatiyan ji bo ewlekariya xwe bi xwe koçber bûne, ne bi darê zorê hatine koçberkirin.
    Rûpela 14’an –movika 1-xêza 3’an
    “…Lê belê wî zêde kiriye ku Ew guman dike ku ruxandina malan dibe ku ji bo tolrakirina kuştina endamên yekîneyên…..”
    Ev yek jî zelal dike ku hemû nerîn û şahidiyên hatine kirin xwe dispêre txmînan û wan bûyer bi çavên xwe ne dîtine.
    Rûpela 15’an-Movika 1-xêza 2’an
    “…Lêkolînerên rêxistnê serdana 4 bajarok û gunêdn ku lê welatî hatin koçberkirin û li gel welatiyên herêmê axivîn.”
    Di vir de jî nakokî zelale, tê gotin ku li gel welatiyan hatiye axaftin û di heman demê de hate gotin ku welatî bi temamî hatin koçber kirin. Diyare di raporê de binge hin kesên ku şahidiyên wan nehatiye piştrastkirin û ne hatine teyîdkirin ku têkiliya wan bi bûyerê heye yan bûyer dîtine.
    Rûpela 15’an-Movika 3- Zêza 2 û 5’an
    “….Şêniyên wan û hin kesên din ji gundê El-Mexat ya li nêzî wê riya koberiya wan a bi darê zorê ku bi destê hin şervanan tê texmînkirin ku endamên Yekîneyên Parstina Gel in.”
    “Şêniyên wan gundan Rêxisitina Lêborîna Navnetewî gotin ku ew texmîn dikin….”
    Ji van yekan diyar dibe ku kesên navê şahidên bûyerê li wan hatiye kirin tiştek ne dîtine. Ew tenê texmîn dikin û ev nabe isbatek ku pê were kirin.
    Cihê di raporê de navê gundê Mexat lê hatiye kirin tu hebûn jêre nîne, lê belê ew yek ji taxên başûrê bajarê Silûke. Hemû texên Silûk û beriya Yekîneyên YPG’ê bikevênê bi mehekê wekî wekî herêma leşkerî hatibû ragîhandin. Bajaroka Silûk wekî xeta parstina Girê Spî ya yekem hate bikar anîn û bargeheke komên çete yên DAIŞ’ê bû. Heta niha jî di piraniya malbatên Silûk de mayînên ku çeteyan beriya têkbiçin çandibûn hene.
    Rûpela 20’an- Movika 2- Xêza 6’an
    “…..Piştî hefteyekê 3 zilam derdora saet 12’00’yê nîvor. Riyên xwe kur kirbûn û bi erebî diaxivîn, li wan diyar ne dibû ku endamênYPG’ê ne, lê belê cilên keskê sade li xwe kiribûn. Ji mere gotin ku 3 saet an ku derkevin. Lê me careke din tiştên ji ên beriya wan re gotibû me ji wan re. Gefa ku dê guleyan li me bireşînin heger em ji gund dernekevin……”
    Ev xal jî zela dike ku şahidên di raporê de hatine bikar anîn ne cihê baweriyê ne. Şahid bi xwe jî ji gotinên xwe û nasnameya çekdaran ne bawarin.
    Rûpela 20’an- Movikka 2- Xêza 6’an
    “…..Zilamekî koçber ji gund ji Rêxisitna Lêborîna Navnetewî re got ku Endamên Yekîtineyên Parastina Gel gule li 2 zarokên nêzî gundê ber bi Silûk ve hatin reşandine. Nûnerên Rêxisitinê bi herdû zarokên gule li wan hate reşandin re axivîn, wan jî tişta hate gotin piştrast kirin…..”
    Di raporê de nakokiyeke zelal heye: Bi herdû zarokên bi wan re hate axaftin.
    Wekî wê û wekî mînak: Derbasî gundê ku hemû şêniyên wê hatine koçberkirin û bi şêniyên wê re hate axaftin.
    Rûpela 23’an -Movika 2- Xêza 3’yan
    “….Rojnamavanan ragîhandin ku Yekîneyên Parastina Gel di 6’ê tîrmehê de welatiyên tirkmen koçber kirine û navê hin koçberan wekî lîste destnîşan kirin……”
    Li vir jî rêxistinê rapora xwe sparstiya raporeke bi dîmen ku li ser malpera “Sirac Pirs” ya girêdayî Desteya Giştî ya Şoreşa Sûriyê ya girêdayî Koalîsyona Niştimanî ya hêzên opozisyoan Sûriyê. Di raporê de navê hin malbatên îda dikin ku ji aliyê YPG’ê ve hatine koçberkirin. Kesên ev yek belge kiriye kesê bi navê Enwer El-Ekaf e. El-Ekaf fermandarê tabûreke li ser navê Islamê tevidger û wan bi xwe welatiyên kurd li Girê Spî û gundên wan dane koçberkirin û mal û milkên wan talan kirin. Di heman demê de ji aliyê Buroya Belgekirinê û Binpêkirinan a girêdayî Hikûmeta Demî ku li Tirkiyê jialiyê Koalsyona Opozisyona SÛriyê hatiye avakirin.
    Rûpela 26-Pargrafa dawî- xêza 2
    “Piştî ku di navbera Hêzên YPG’ê û komên çete de pevçûn qewimîn, ew hefteyekê ji gund derketin.”
    Nîşaneke din a ku diyar dike ku pevçûnên ku dibin sedema hilweşandina malan di gundên ku hatin nivîsandin de ku piraniya wan ji heriyê hatin çêkirin, qewimîne û ew mal ji ber bikaranîna çekên giran hilweşiya ne.
    Rûpela 29- Pragrafa 1- Xêza 1
    Ehmed diyar kir ku yek ji zarokên wî endamê Tabûra El-Farûq a girêdayî Artêşa Azad ya Sûriyê ya li Serêkaniyê, ku bi YPG’ê re şer dikir bû.
    Ev jî nişana ku hinek welatiyên herêmê beşdarî çalakiyên leşkerî yên ku hêzên ku dijminahiya YPG’ê dikin pêk anîne, bûne. Ev dibe sedem ku ew bibe armanceke leşkerî ya rewa di rewşa şer de û girtina malbata wî û derbaskirina wan di lêpirsînê re nayê wateyê sûcê şer. Malbatê li vir negotin ku ew bi darê zoarê hatin derxistin, lê belê gotin ew ji vegerê ditirsiyan.
    Rûpela 34-Pragrafa 1- xêza 1
    Di qanûna Înasanî û navnetewî de çênabe ku sivîl di şerên çekdarî yên ne navdewletê de bên koçberkirin, lê belê ji bo ewlekariya wan û ji ber sedemên leşkerî dibe ku bên derxisin ev jî istîsna ye.
    Di madeya borî ku di raporê de û di sîstema Roma ya esasî de hatiye nivîsandin ku dibêje ji bo ewlekariya wan û ji ber sedemên leşkerî dibe bên derxistin ev istîsna ye. Piraniya bûyerên ku di raporê de hatine nivîsandin diyar dikin ku sedemênleşkerî hene. Di raporê de istîsna esas hatiye girtin, ne qanûn û weke delîl hatiye bikaranîn. Bi vê yekê jî xwe vala der xistiye, ev jî nîşan dide ku kesên rapor amade kirine, yan qanûnan nas nakin ya jî bi zanebûn rastî ji bo sedemên ku tenê ew dizanin, berovajî kirine.
    Derbarê lêkolîna ku Rêxistinê belavkiriye jî emê ji we re çend xalên diyar dikin ku kesên ev rapor amade kirine û çavdêriya wê kirine ne kesên profesyonelin û ji hin aliyan ve bi armanca reşkirina Rêveberiya Xweser û Hêzên YPG/YPJ’ê hatiye çêkirin.
    Gundê Husêniyê -1
    Rêxistina lêborandinê ya navnetewî dibêje ku piştî ku ew di destpêka meha Tebaxê de çûne gundê Husêniyê yê ku li nêzê bajarokê Til Hemîs e, gundiyan ji wan re gotine ku Hêzên YPG’ê berpirsyarê hilweşandina 90 malan e û li gorî ku şêniyên herêmê ji rêxistinêre diyar kirine ku bajarokê Til Hemîs di meha sibata sala 2013’an de ket destê komên opozisyonê yên bi navê Artêşa Azad. Yek ji berpirsyarên ereb ên herêmî ji rêxistinê re dibêje ku yekîneyên parastinê di destpêkê di meha kanûna 2013’an de li gundewarên Til Hemîs de bi komên Artêşa Azad û hin komên din ên çekdar re ketin nava pevçûnan. Berpirsê herêmê dibeje ku pevçûnên herî dijwar di nava yekîneyên parastinê yên kurd û Artêşa Azad de di meha sibata 2014’an de li gundê Husêniyê pêk hatin. Ev yek ji aliyê jina bi navê Fereh ve ku yek jinên gundê Husêniêy ye jî di raporê de tê piştrastkirin. Fereh dibêje ew di dema pevçûnan de li wir bûye û hin mal di meha sibata 2014’an de ji ber pevçûnan hilweşiyane. Lê belê ev gotin ne rastin, ji ber ku pevçûnên ku di nava YPG’ê û komên çete yên li Hemîs û gundewarên wê de di 28’ê Kanûna 2013’an de derketin û di 6’ê Çileya 2014’an de bê ku bighêjin gundê Husêniyê bi daxuyaniyekê ji aliyê YPG’ê ve dawî bûn. Bi vê yekê jî derdikeve holê ku herdu şahidên nav borî derewan dikin. Derbarê şerê ku di meha sibatê de pêk hat jî ew şer tenê li bajarokê Til Birakê qewimî û li Til Hemîs pêk nehat. Ev şer jî di bin navê ‘Hemleya wefadariya bi şehîdên Til Berak û Til Hemîsê’ de li dijî komên çete yên girêdayî Rêxistina El-Qayde pêk hat û wê demê jî me daxuyaniyek derbarê hemleyê de da. Lê Rêxistina Lêborandinê careke din li ser navê jina bi navê Fereh yekîneyên parastinê yên kurd, bi hilweşandina gund tewanbar dike.
    Gundê Hemam ê Turkmenan
    Rêxistina Amnesty dibêje ku serdana Gundê Hemam ê Turkmenan ê girêdayî bajarokê Silûkê kiriye. Yek ji welatiyan dibêje ku hezar û 400 malbatên Turkmen lê hene. Kesekî din jî dibêje ku hezar malbat hene. Ev hejmar dûrî rastiyê ne û rastiyê înkar dikin. Em naxwazin ku balê bikşînin ser hejmara welatiyan û mijara koçberiyê deynin aliyekî, lê dema ku em şaştî û tehrîfkirinên rastiyan ên rêxistinê dibînin, baweriya bi lêgerîn û kesên ku amade dikin namîne.
    Rêxistin dibêje ku li dijî vî gundê êrîşên bi tirimpêlên bombebarkirî û sekvanan pêk hatine, ev jî mijara koçkirina bi zorê derew derdixe û diyar dike ku ew ji ber rewşeke şer e.
    Divê her kes zanibe ku li gundê Hemam ê Turkmen zêdetirî hezar û 500 mlabatan heye û şêniyên wî 15 hezar kes in. Ev jî tiştên ku wan kesan gotiye derew derdixe û diyar dike ku belkî ev kes ne neşteciyên gund in an jî kesên ku tehrîfan dikin.
    Di 1’ê îlona 2015’an de di navbera fermandariya leşkerî ya hêzên me û rûspiyên gund de civînek li bajarê Girê Spî (Til Ebyed) hat lidarxistin. Di civînê de rûspiyan navên 79 kesên ji gund ku endmên DAIŞ’ê ne û dema bajar hat rizgarkirin bi çeteyan re reviyane, dane. Wê demê rûspiyan ji me xwest ku divê ev 79 kes venegerin gund. Malbat hemû niha li gund in, her dezgeheke çapemeniyê an jî rêxistineke mafên mirovan a rast û serbixwe di nav de Amnesty serdana gund bike, yekîneyên me jî dê parastina wan misoger bike.
    Rêxistina Amnesty Yekîneyên Parsatina Gel bi koçkirina zorê ya welatiyan Turkmen tewanbar dike. Xwe dispêre raporeke çapemeniyê û wêneyên ji aliyê kesê bi navê Xedaf Racih û balavokeke Malpera Sîrac Press ku ji karê pîşeyî yê çepemeniyê dûr e û wekî malpereke Koalîsyona Niştîmanî ya Sûriyeyê û li dijî Rêveberiya Xweser û YPG’ê ye, tê naskirin. Di rapora ku vê malperê belav kiriye de yekîneyên me bi koçkirina welatiên Ereb tewanbar dike û navê gundan jî rêz dike. Ev gundên ku malper dibêje gundên Turkmenan e. Ev yek diyar dike ku kesên rapora Rêxistina Amnesty amade kirine ev agahî ji vê malperê derxistine û li şûna koçkirina Ereban, Koçkirina Turkmenan nivîsandine.
    Naverok
    Çavdêriya ku rêxistina navnetewî Amensty (Rêxistina Efû) belav kiriye û têde Yekîneyên Parsatina Gel bi navê (sûcên şer) hatiye tewanbarkirin rastiya heyî dernaxe û bi temamî ji rastiya şer û ziraviyên wê dûr e. kesên ev rapor amade kirine bi awayekî eşkere ji kiryarên rêxistina DAIŞ’ê ya terorîst û û hêzên beriya wê dûr çûne û nabêje ku dema ev rêxistin bi bin ketine wêranî, şewitandin û xerabî kirine û ji derketine.
    Rapora Amnesty ne raporeke pîşeyî û pisporî ye û ne serbixwe ye. Xuya dike ku aliyê siyasî bêhtir bandor lê kiriye, ev jî ne li gorî pîvan û rêgezên rêxistinê ye. Ev rapor armanc dike ku bi awayekî mezin nakokiyên nijadî kûr bike û rewşa şer wekî şerê di navber Kurd û Ereban de diyar dike. Ev jî xeteriyeke mezin û ne li gorî exlaqê rêxistina Amnesty ye û baweriya ji kesên amade kirine û baweriya ji vê rêxistinê jî dixe gumanan. Ev rapor ne li gorî tişta li ser edê û rastiya rewşa jiyana aştiyan di navbera civaka pir nijad, mezheb û netew lê jiyan dikin, ye.
    Kesên ku rapor amade kirine dibêjin malên wê hatiye wêrankirin, di navbera hêzên me û rêxistina DAIŞ’ê de şerên dijwar rû dane. Beriya wê jî ev herêm ketiye destê gelek hêz û koman hin ji wan jî yên Artêşa Azad, Cebhet El-Nusra, Ehrer El-Şam û herî dawî DAIŞ. Li vê herêmê şer mal bi mal çêdibû û hemû cureyên çekan hatine bikaranîn, di raporê de jî behsa vê mijarê tê kirin.
    Rêxistinên li pey hev hatine vê herêmê di şerê xwe de mayîn didan çandin, tirimpêlên bombebarkirî, kesên întîharî, bombekirina malan bikar tanîn. Her kes dizane ku ev tektîk ên herî ku ziyan, teror û zeraran li pey xwe dihêlin in, bandoreke mezin li jiyana sivîlan dikin û dihêle ku ji ber mayîn û van wêraniyan koçber bibin. Van rêxistinan nêzî 16 hezar mayînên biçûk û mezin di navbera herêmên (rojhilatî Til Hemîs-Çiyayê Kizwana- başûrê Til Temirê û heta bajarê Girê Spî) çandine. Yekîneyên me yên pispor çariyek ji van mayînan ku li dehan gund û mezreyan hatine çandin, rakirine, derfetên têrî bikin ku hemû werin rakirin jî tune ne. Me gelek caran jî ji civaka navnetewî û rêxistinên pispor xwestiye ku destê alîkariyê dirêjî me bikin da ku bi hev re em van mayînan rakin û welatî vegerin gundên xwe.
    Hêzên me yên YPG, Artêşa Azad, Navenda Çalakiyên Burkan El-Firat û hêzên herêmê yên dostên me bi alîkariya balafirên Koalîsyona Navnetewî ya li dijî DAIŞ di navbera sibat û tîrmeha 2015’an de me nêzî hezar û 500 gundên herêmê rizgar kirine. Ji gundên li rojhilatî Til Hemîs û heta gundên li rojavayê bajarokê Sirrîn, gundên bajarê Girê Spî (Til Ebyed) ji terora DAIŞ’ê hatin rizgarkirin. Welatiyên van gundan di nav de gunên Xemir bi kêfxweşî li malên xwe jiyan dikin û heta niha neheqî li yek kesî sivîl jî nehatiye kirin.
    Rêxistina DAIŞ’ê wlatî ji gundên wan bi hincetên cuda cuda derdixistin û wan wekî mertalên zindî bikar tanî, mal dişewitand û wêran dikir, depoyên petrolê vala dikir û agir pê dixist da ku balafirên koalîsyonê û şervanên me cihên wan tesbît nekin. Piştî ku têk diçûn, dema ku neçar diman vekşin wêranî û xerabî li pey xwe dihiştin û ev kiryar dixistin sukra hêzên me. Li gundê Hisêniyê yê girêdayî bajarokê Til Hemîs jî heman tişt bû. Kesên rapora rêxistina navnetewî ya Amnesty amade kirine nikarîbûn vê rastiyê di rapora xwe de binivîsin û tenê tişta ku hin aliyan Koalîsyona Niştîmanî ya Sûriyyê yên dijberî Rêveberiya Xweser û YPG’ê ne, ji wan xwestiye ew kirine. Ne dûr e ku ev kes di şerê ku çêbûye de bi xwe jî hevkarê rêxistina DAIŞ’ê û hêzên alîgirên wê bin û xwe wekî şahidên bûyeran nîşan dane. Kesê bi navê Enwer El-Kettaf ku tewanbariya koçkirin, kuştin û talankirin û teslîmkirina sivîlan ji bo DAIŞ’ê li ser e yek ji wan e.
    Piştî ku rêxistina DAIŞ’ê ji van herêman hate qewitandin Yekîneyên Parastina Gel yekser beriya ku rêxistinên alîkariyan ên navnetewî werin, dest bi peydakirina pêdiviyên welatiyan ên lezgîn kir. Alîkariya tenduristî li gorî derfetên xwe pêşkêş kir.
    Em dixwazin balê bikşînin ku rêjeya Ereban û pêkhateyên din di nava refên hêzên me de bi awayekî mezin zêde bûye û zêdetirî çariyekê (1/4) ji tevahiya hêzên me ye. Ev jî gumanên li ser YPG’ê radike û vê îdîayên kesên ku rapora Amensty amade kirine û me bi koçerkirina heman pêkhateyê tewanbar dikin, berovajî dike. Kesên rapor amade kirine tenê li şahidî û axaftinên beşekî ji van kesên ku bi DAIŞ’ê re ji herêmê reviyan e û dest wan bi xwîna gelê Sûriyeyê qirêj bûne, guhdar kirine. Helbet wê nerîna wan wiha be. Wê demê em nikarin behsa rastî û baweriya bi vê raporê bikin û ne jî kesên ku bûne şahid.
    Ji destpêka şerê navxweyî yên li Sûriyeyê û heta vê saetê herêmên ku Yekîneyên Parastina Gel û hêzên dost ji destê komên terorê rizgar kirine, herêmên herî bi ewle û aram li ser asta Sûriyeyê ne. Herî dawî jî êrîşa şer hebûnê ya bajarê Kobanê bû.
    Careke din em bibîr dixin ku rastiya heyî bi tabyet di çarçoveya şer li ser erdnîgariya Sûriyeyê ku bûye qada şerê aliyan her yek ji wan ji aliyekî herêmî ve tê destekirin pir bi êş e. Cudahiyên siysaî û nakokiyên ramyarî yên van aliyan dihêle ku erka parastina aramî û ewlehiya welatiyan bixe rewşeke dijwar. Lê belê pêwîstî bi derfetên pir mezin heye. Tevî derfetên biçûk û mutewazî li herêmên di bin kontrola Yekîneyên Parastina Gel de li gorî herêmên din ên welat ziyan gelekî kêm bûn. Me şervanên xwe yên herî baş dane da ku bigihêjin armanca xwe û rê li pêşiya ziyanên li welatiyên Sûriyeyê tên kirin, bigrin.
    Dawî
    Rêxistina Navnetewî Amnesty yek ji rêxistinên sivîl ên cîhanî ye. Heta niha bal kişandiye ser gelek dozên mafên mirovan ên cîhanê, di derxistina rastiyan de roleke wê ya pêşeng hebûn, lê mixabin kesên ev rapora wê amade kirine di derxistina rastiyan û gîhandina wan ji raya giştî re bêyî ku mafên wan hebe şaştî kirine û têgîn, sîfat û sernavên ne li gorî cewher û naveroka raporê danîne, ev yek dihêle ku em ji rastiya wê û tewanbariyên wê ne bawer bin.
    Careke din em ji raya giştî re dibêjin ku tu hêzeke wekî Yekîneyên Parastina Gel ku baweriya wê bi pirrengiya nijdar, netew û mezheban, hebe û şerê terora cîhanê ya DAIŞ’ê nûnertiya wê dike da ku aştî û aramî di nava civakê de pêk were, tune ye. Paye û astên şervanên me çi be bila bibe, eger şaştiyan dikin , li gorî qanûn û rêziknameyan tên cezakirin.
    Dîsa jî deriyê me ji hemû rêxistinên navnetewî yên mafên mirovan vekirî ne û bang li wan dikin ku serdana herêmên di bin kontrola me de bikin di nav de rêxistina Amnesty (Efû) û careke din li rapora xwe vegere û bixe xizmeta rastiyê ya li gorî rêgezên wê.

    On PYD, Turkish concern, tension in Iraqi Kurdistan
    John Kirby
    Spokesperson
    Daily Press Briefing
    Washington, DC
    October 14, 2015
    QUESTION: Yesterday, Mark said on the podium that U.S. provided ammunition to Syrian Arab groups over the weekend, not Syrian Kurdish group PYD. But PYD leader Salih Muslim told Turkish press that PYD and its allies received the American ammunition airdrops. Polat Can, another PYD spokesperson, said that they would distribute the ammunition to allied Arab groups. So have you airdropped ammunition pallets to Syrian Arabs or Kurds?
    MR KIRBY: I would point you to the Defense Department to speak to airdrops. That’s a military matter. As I understand it, there were no – that the drops recently conducted of some 100 bundles went to Syrian Arab counter-ISIL fighters.
    QUESTION: Whether or not they were or were not – which is, as you say, a Pentagon matter – the Turks did call in – there has been some diplomatic move on this, has there not?
    MR KIRBY: I think that it’s safe to say that the Turkish Government continues to raise their concerns about Syrian Kurds —
    QUESTION: Are you —
    MR KIRBY: — and we continue to have discussions with them.
    QUESTION: And are you aware of any such contact today?
    MR KIRBY: There have been discussions very, very recently about continued concerns by the Turks about the YPD, and we’ll continue to discuss that with them. We understand their concerns with respect to that. They’re longstanding. They’ve been very honest about it, and we’re going to continue to engage with them about those concerns.
    I think it’s just important to remember, getting – and I understand the sensitivity on this – the focus in Syria for the United States and the other 60-plus members of the coalition is about counter-ISIL. And we will continue to appropriately support those groups that are proving effective against ISIL inside Syria. But in this particular case, I think the Pentagon spoke to that very clearly about what was delivered and to whom it was delivered.
    QUESTION: Is it true that American Ambassador John Bass was summoned to Turkish foreign ministry over the concerns related to PYD?
    MR KIRBY: I think Matt was just asking about that. I don’t talk about the details of diplomatic conversations. I can tell you that we continue to talk to the Turkish Government about their concerns, specifically with respect to the Syrian Kurds, and those discussions will continue.
    QUESTION: Another question, last one: Have you seen the Turkish prime minister’s comments on the ammunition deliveries to PYD? He said that if these ammunitions fall into the hands of PKK, Turkey will destroy those ammunition in Syria as it has done in Iraq.
    MR KIRBY: Is there a question there?
    QUESTION: Yeah, it’s a question.
    MR KIRBY: What’s your question?
    QUESTION: My question is have you —
    MR KIRBY: Have I seen those comments?
    QUESTION: Yeah.
    MR KIRBY: No, I have not.
    ================================
    John Kirby
    Spokesperson
    Daily Press Briefing
    Washington, DC
    October 15, 2015
    QUESTION: Iraq. So the tensions appear to have been rising over the past two days in Iraqi Kurdistan. Do you have anything new on that political tension and whether it may have any impact on the war against Islamic State? Because there has been a lot of commentary about the possible negative impacts of this political —
    MR KIRBY: I actually don’t have a lot on the politics there in northern Iraq to discuss. And as you know, we’ve – we refrain, as a regular matter, of speaking to domestic politics issues in other countries. What’s important to us is that we’re going to continue to support the Government of Iraq as that government faces and deals with the challenge of ISIL inside their country, and through the Government of Iraq we’ll continue to provide the necessary support that needs to be given to those Peshmerga forces that are fighting up in the north and have been quite successful on the ground.
    QUESTION: So there’s no significant concern here in Washington about the possible negative impacts on – of this political infighting on the morale and resolve of the Peshmerga on the front lines?
    MR KIRBY: I’m going to refrain from commenting on, again, domestic politics inside Iraq. What I can tell you is our focus is on supporting the Government of Iraq as that government continues to deal with the challenges of ISIL. And that progress – the progress against ISIL continues, and I fully expect that it will continue to – the progress will continue to be made – slow, to be sure, and not always steady. We understand that. This is going to be a long fight. And what we want to make sure and that the coalition continues to remain united against this threat. And a member of that coalition obviously is Iraq, so they’re an important partner in this fight and we’re going to continue to support them.
    QUESTION: Thank you.
    =======================
    Mark C. Toner
    Deputy Spokesperson
    Daily Press Briefing
    Washington, DC
    October 16, 2015
    QUESTION: Syria?
    MR TONER: Yeah, sure.
    QUESTION: Earlier this week you also – and today also you mentioned that the airdrop was to the Arab groups, the rebellion in Syria.
    MR TONER: Yeah.
    QUESTION: And that they were vetted. Is there any reason why the YPG leaders were not vetted to get the airdrop also?
    MR TONER: Why – I’m sorry. Why do —
    QUESTION: Why they were not also vetted to get —
    MR TONER: Yeah. I mean, what we do —
    QUESTION: — to be in the same category of the Arab groups.
    MR TONER: Sure. I can’t speak to, again, whether we’re in the process of vetting them, whether they’ll receive future airdrops. I can only speak to what – the airdrop that was conducted on October 11th.
    Certainly, we have provided air support, considerable air support, for a lot of these groups, including the YPG, as they take the fight to ISIL in northern Syria. And we’ll continue to do that. But in terms of actual provision of ammunition and small arms ammunition, I can’t speak to whether that’ll happen or not.
    QUESTION: If you discover that the Arab groups have passed on some or all of this ammunition to the Kurds, would that count against them in the future? Would that be seen as breaking the rules?
    MR TONER: Again, I think that overall what we’re trying to accomplish here is these groups operating in northern Syria – Arabs, Syrian Arabs, Syrian Kurds, and others – have been effective against ISIL. We’re looking to support them. We provided this small arms supply to the Syrian Arab group. I just can’t speak to what may happen on the ground or also what may happen in the future in terms of support for those groups.
    QUESTION: But normally when there’s arms supplies there’s an end-user —
    MR TONER: Of course.
    QUESTION: — kind of understanding. And if you’ve vetted them —
    MR TONER: No, of course. And as I said, they were vetted and —
    QUESTION: — you thought it was for them.
    MR TONER: I mean, in a way you’re asking me to speculate, and I just can’t do that. I mean, we are – we have confidence that this supply run, this ammunition, got to the right people.
    Please, in the back. Can we – done with Syria? That’d be great.
    QUESTION: It’s a different subject.
    QUESTION: We know in Kurdistan there are challenging times facing the political parties. The question is: How important the stability of KRG is for USA?
    MR TONER: Well, good question. Look, we’re concerned by ongoing political tension in the Iraqi Kurdistan region, and last week I think that led to violent demonstrations. We call on all involved to exercise restraint, to respect all the rights for peaceful expression – or everyone’s right for peaceful expression and to apply that right responsibly without inciting further tension.
    I’d say we urge Kurdistan’s – the Kurdistan region’s political parties to work constructively together, to show maximum flexibility, to resolve their differences as quickly as possible – and I mentioned this the other day – so that the KRG can focus on the real enemy, which is defeating ISIL. We also want to see them be able to focus on facilitating humanitarian assistance to refugees and internally displaced people and promote the economic well being of all people living in the region.
    Please, sir.
    QUESTION: In this case that you last week – I think earlier this week also – you mentioned that they have to focus on the other issues such as ISIS. But it seems they don’t, because a few days ago several Peshmerga officers were fired because of their political affiliation with one of the parties, and units of Peshmerga deployed in – between the cities is re-establishing the civil war borders between KDP and PUK areas. So this are – is going to have an impact – a negative impact on the war against ISIS. Is there any room for the United States either intervention or whatever, helping them, to resolve that issue?
    MR TONER: Sure.
    QUESTION: Are you going to do the same thing that you did several weeks ago, sending them the presidential envoy?
    MR TONER: Right. Well, we’ve been engaged, as you mentioned, and we continue to be in contact with senior Iraqi Kurdish leaders, frankly, to encourage them to resolve their differences through direct dialogue and through – and in a peaceful manner. That’s absolutely paramount. As I just said, they need to resolve their differences, find a way forward, and as I said, focus on, frankly, the very severe humanitarian crisis and the very real threat of ISIL.
    QUESTION: And as a result of this, the media became a victim of these conflicting parties. Today my NRT TV channel’s offices remain closed in Erbil and Duhok, and my colleagues in – they are all stuck in Sulaymaniyah. They are not allowed to return to their cities, Erbil and Duhok, and activists were prevented entering Erbil by KDP forces. It is still continuing and we didn’t hear anything vocally or publically United States to condemn these actions by one of the political parties that have the more influence in those areas – in Duhok and Erbil.
    MR TONER: Well, look, I mean, we condemn any kind of action against a free and independent media. It’s one of the pillars of a strong democracy or even an emerging or growing democracy. You need that diversity of voices in the media space, so any actions to restrict that environment we would see as discouraging.
    Is that it? Anything else, guys? Going once, going twice. Thanks.

    Syria Kurds denounce Amnesty ‘war crimes’ report

    Syria’s Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) denounced rights group Amnesty International for accusing its fighters of war crimes by forcibly displacing people and demolishing homes.

    Amnesty said this week that Syrian Kurdish forces had carried out a “campaign of collective punishment” against villages previously held by the Islamic State group.

    It accused them of preventing people from returning to their villages after IS was expelled and, in some cases, destroying houses belonging to residents accused of IS sympathies.

    The YPG rejected the allegations and said the report would cause tensions between Arabs and Kurds in Syria.

    “The Amnesty International report is arbitrary, biased and unprofessional,” the YPG said, also calling it “dangerous, unethical and unworthy of” the organisation.

    “This report will contribute greatly to the deepening of ethnic tensions and portrays things as a sectarian war between Kurds and Arabs,” the statement added.

    Its response includes line-by-line rebuttals of allegations including the deliberate destruction of homes and the razing of one village in northeast Syria.

    The Kurdish force said Amnesty had failed to take into consideration the damage caused by years of fighting and an IS strategy of using mines and other explosives.

    “Successive terrorist organisations in the region pursued a war strategy of planting improvised explosive devices and mines, using car and suicide bombs and booby-trapping houses,” the YPG said.

    “The authors of the report ignore what Daesh (IS) terrorists and others before them in the region did during their defeats in terms of demolition, burning and destruction.”

    The group also pointed to its alliance with Arab fighters, which it said “removed all doubt” that it would engage in the forced displacement of any particular ethnic group.

    But Amnesty’s report said the destruction it examined on a fact-finding mission to 14 towns and villages did not result from fighting.

    It quoted villagers who said Kurdish forces had deliberately razed the village of Husseiniya in Hasakeh province.

    Amnesty said satellite images showed that nearly 94 percent of the village had been destroyed between June 2014 and June 2015.

    The YPG cast doubt Amnesty’s witnesses, saying the group had interviewed people “who fled the area with Daesh and are stained with the blood of the Syrian people.”

    Syria’s Kurds have proved to be the country’s most effective force against IS, but their advances with the help of a US-led coalition’s airpower have at times exacerbated existing ethnic tensions in northeastern Syria.

    The YPG has sought to fight allegations of abuses against non-Kurds, pointing to its alliances with other forces.

    This week it announced a formal coalition with Arab and Syriac Christian fighters in northern Syria.

    2nd July 2015

    The SOHR is an organization located in London. It collects and publishes information about violation of human rights in Syria. In North Syria, there are three areas which are mainly populated by Kurds: Kobani, Jazira and Afrin. Resisting the Assad regime in Damascus and the Islamic opposition, these areas have been declared to be autonomous.

    On the 24th of June, 2015, Julia Schlüns, intern of the Middle East department and Kamal Sido, head of the Middle East department of the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP), have spoken with Rami Abdulrahman.

    STP: After the capture of Til Abyad and the expulsion of the “Islamic State” (IS), the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) is accused of “ethnic cleansing” against the Turkmen minority group and the Arabic Sunni population. What goals are the Kurds pursuing regarding this “ethnic cleansing”?

    RA: There’s no “ethnic cleansing” in Til Abyad against the Turkmen and Arabic population. If the YPG would have wanted to expel Arabs and Turkmens, it would have done so already during the liberation of the villages. Nevertheless, it happens that – in case IS has been expelled – inhabitants are being asked to not go back to their villages immediately because of mine danger. In some villages, like in Dogan or Al Bajela, the inhabitants were prevented from returning to the villages for a longer period of time because IS fighters were still expected to be in the villages.

    STP: The allegations concerning the “ethnic cleansing” are coming first and foremost from Turkey and the Syrian coalition. Why?

    RA: It is obvious why the allegations came from the Turkish government. Regarding the Syrian coalition, it repeated what Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said beforehand. I repeat: The Turkish government is hostile towards Kurds in Turkey as well as Syria. It fears a strengthening of the Kurdish position in the region. Let me remind you of the fact that in autumn 2014 at least 300,000 Kurds have been expelled by IS. At that time, the Turkish government did not speak of “ethnic cleansing” against the Kurds. Quite the contrary, the Turkish government has co-operated with IS.

    STP: Did the YPG conduct „ethnic cleansing” in other regions, perhaps in the east of Til Abyad in Qamishli, at earlier stages?

    RA: I haven’t heard of such cases. There are dozens of Arabic villages near Qamishli, further east. The Arabs are still living there and are also protected by the YPG. Indeed, there are civilian casualties in the fights between YPG and IS, but there’s no specific and systematic persecution on account of a certain religion or ethnicity by YPG.

    STP: Are Arabic, Assyrian-Aramaean or Armenian residents being persecuted in the YPG dominion?

    RA: Definitively not.

    STP: Are you familiar with other ethnic or religiously motivated persecutions by the administrations of the cantons of Afrin, Kobani or Jazira?

    RA: No.

    STP: The YPG is accused of the recruitment of people under the age of 18. What do you know about this?

    RA: We observe the behavior of the YPG in this matter very closely. From time to time recruitments of minors are being reported. But these are usually individual cases. In these cases, the public authorities in the cantons are talking about “tahil” (rehabilitation). For example: When minors run away from their families for various reasons and are taken up by the authorities of the cantons. But because there are no clear boundaries between the different public authorities, the YGP or the PYD (Partiya Yekitîya Demokrat/ Democratic Union Party) are being accused of recruiting minors. Anyways, the public authorities of the cantons explicitly request the drawing of clear boundaries. Minors should not be recruited. Besides, we are against a forced recruitment of adult people, too. The fight against IS should be led only by volunteers. Regarding this issue, we are in a current debate with the autonomous public authorities in Afrin, Kobani and Jazira.

    STP: There are existing conflicts between the PYD and the Kurdish National Council (KNC). What can you say about these conflicts?

    RA: Again and again the KNC complains that KNC followers are persecuted by the public authorities in the cantons. Regarding this question one fact should be noticed: The PYD and the KNC are political rivals. The KNC cooperates closely with the Syrian Coalition (based in Istanbul) and does not want to acknowledge the existence of the public authorities and the cantons. We condemn every form of persecution based on political views.

    STP: Why does the Government of Turkey “prefer” to have IS as a neighbor instead of Kurds, more specifically the PYD and the YPG?

    RA: The Turkish government fears a strengthening of the Kurdish position in the region as I have already mentioned. Because of that they tolerate and even support the “Islamic State”. Without the support of the Turkish government, IS would not have become what it is today. Approximately 50.000 jihadists from all over the world arrived in Syria and Iraq via Turkey. There is photo and video footage which clearly proves the cooperation between IS and the Turkish government.

    STP: Does the PYD in North Syria want to establish a purely “Kurdish state”? Or do they merely want to have self-government?

    RA: To our knowledge and according to official announcements of the YPD and the PYD they don’t want to establish a separate state. They want a democratic, not centralistic, pluralistic, ethnically and religiously diverse Syria.

    By the way [jokingly]: “Only Allah knows what’s hidden in the hearts.” Well, I am not a clairvoyant. I am not able to say what will happen in the future.

    STP: Should the international community support the three cantons in Afrin, Kobani or Jazira? If yes, then why?

    RA: Yes, in any case. That’s one of our main demands for Europe and the international community. Within the Syrian chaos, people need a perspective. And the cantons in North Syria are such a perspective. People in Syria have to see examples for a peaceful togetherness in their own country. And North Syria could become an example for whole Syria.

    Petitioning Amnesty International UK Amnesty UK and 3 others
    Amnesty International must remove Arab Nationalist Lama Fakih reporting about Kurdistan

    If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” by Malcolm X

    “Kurds always have became prey to various nationalist interests in the region in the last century” Today same thing happening thru paid and/or nationalist agents dispersed in local and international organizations. Politically driven big smear campaign is being waged against the Kurds and Rojava revolution.

    Arab Nationalist advisor Lama Fakih at Amnesty, has been publishing distorted reports from Syria and Kurdistan in general. While Kurdish forces are not and should not be immune to any human right abuses, distorting a reality with only talking to ISIS supporters and closing eye to the biggest human tragedy of the 21st century committed by ISIS and their offshoot organizations and supporters, is no way can be considered a fair reporting practice. PYD (Democratic Union Party) administration is the only administration in Middle East to recognize secular and multicultural administration as main principles while protecting and securing all religious, women and gender rights including gays. Kurdish Administration PYD already called for international organizations to keep their reporters in the region and witness war on ISIS to avoid any false allegations.

    Lama Fakih’s latest report about YPG’s displacements of some families of the ISIS supporters due to on going fight against ISIS is exaggerated disproportionately and become as if it is the main human right issue in Syria while ISIS and other Jihadist terrorist organizations committing mass murders, rapes, bombing of historical sites, decapitations and many more. To make the approach worse, satellite image shown in the report belongs to 2014 and interviewed residents admitted that buildings were destroyed due to fighting of IS, FSA and regime fighting continued till early 2015 prior to YPG. Hard to believe and suspicious part was, Amnesty report deliberately accepted that buildings rebuilt in the short period prior to YPG taking over. No proof of rebuilding. In the middle of dirty war, who would believe buildings are rebuilt in months prior YPG demolishing them again! Just accusations based on people who have family members fighting in the ranks of ISIS. Look at Kobane, after one year of liberation, town is still trashed. Maybe Amnesty can blame YPG for it as well. Reporting should be done within the context of the dirty war ISIS is waging and killing innocent lives every day from these hidden cells.

    YPG/J and Arab fighters fighting together under one unified front against ISIS and other jihadist organizations supported by Turkey, Katar, Saudi Arabia. Arab fighters Burkan al-Firat commander Şervan Dervîş dismissed ethnic cleansing allegations and assured that neither YPG/J nor Burkan al-Firat or any fighters under unified front in anyway acting based on ethic origin rather affiliations with ISIS or not. This unified front consist of Arabs, Kurds, Assyrians and other minorities is a guarantee not to get into sectarian fight. It is a big purposely made mistake from Lama Fakih side not talk to office of Arabic fighters “Burkan al-Firat” about such reports.

    Lama Fakih did not mention any historical and current shelling attacks from Free Syrian Army and Syrian Defence forces and ISIS bombings in two towns reported. See reports of Syrian regime bombing of Husseiniya earlier 2015 https://twitter.com/vvanwilgenburg/status/654208850506162176 .In addition, SOHR(Syrian Observatory For Human Rights) denied any ethnic cleansing from YPG (See Link http://bit.ly/1Kk20wu ). That’s proven by how many Arabs fight within YPG and how Arab groups are allied to YPG. PYD treats every nationality and every religion in an equal manner that’s not happening anywhere in Syria and thats radical even for region

    If Arab Nationalist Lama Fakih and/or Amnesty International, serious about Syria and Kurdish region, there should be a complete report explaining the full events and human right violations rather than just focusing on displacement of some ISIS supporters and publishing as war crimes.

    We demand Amnesty International to remove Lama Fakih from reporting Syria and Kurdish region and replace her with a Senior objective reporter and take the matter more objectively, complete and seriously.

    Unless objective and fair reporting is assured from Amnesty International, we reserve our right to ask international community to stop supporting Amnesty International due to tilted and short sighted reporting which can potentially trigger further ethnic conflicts in the region. Our only hope is that Rojava forces continue to act as unified front against all kind of external ethnic and religious provocations and build a democratic inclusive society.
