The international community

An organized Turkification process, followed the demographic change policy adopted by the Turkish occupation in Afrin, and met with a suspicious silence from the international parties present in the Syrian arena

Hundreds of thousands of Afrin enclave's population, have been forcibly displaced, their houses were looted, their crops were burned. However, the Turkish forces and allied Islamic groups continue to commit daily violations and brutal practices against Afrin's residents

Social media outlets, showed videos of women accuse leaders of these factions of raping them, not to mention changing the names of the villages in Afrin from Kurdish names into Turkish ones , as part of to a systematic political process. All these practices have caused public discontent among residents, says the Syrian Observatory for human rights (SOHR)

"We will not let the people of Afrin bless their crops", a slogan launched by these armed factions and groups, where' illegal taxation' are now taken from the owners of shops, agricultural land and farms without any deterrent

Addition to, an arbitrary detentions campaign that involved young men and women from Afrin, with the purpose of extorting money and force people to pay ransom for release  or being  tortured to death, where a young man was killed under torture, recently, as a source from inside Afrin confirmed

The Syrian Observatory and some activists in Afrin reported that these detentions come under 'flimsy pretexts', such as accusing persons of being affiliated to the People's Protection Units(YPG) or any form of association with the Self-Administration institutions. However,  they do so, in fact , to intimidate people and get money in provocative ways

Even though all documented violations and abuses of international human rights law by the Turkish forces and allied faction, silence, which the only reaction of international community remains  the most powerful violation against human rights of all
