Crimes In Limbo:SDF (PKK) Commits Horrific Crimes Against Syrians Under Cover of the US Led Coalition

Absolutely appalling what the US led coalition has been allowing under their tutelage
noun: tutelage- protection of or authority over someone or something; guardianship.
 This topic has been written on for years here at PFYT's- while so many championed these thugs,  I was labelled a "kurd hater" for stating the facts
 It must be stated unequivocally that too many turned a blind eye to what had/s been occurring in Syria-  Intentionally so, is my thought. This reality was easily knowable with just a little effort!

Scoop - SDF Commits Horrific Crimes Against Syrians Under Coalition Cover
Wednesday, 31 July 2019, 9:00 am
Press Release: Euro-Med Monitor
The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor (Euro-Med) in a brief report today, shed light on numerous extrajudicial executions and other human rights violations carried out by the coalition-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) against civilians living in the eastern part of the country.
SFD continues to violate the rights of Syrians in the face of unjustifiable silence from the international community and continues to receive military and logistical support and air cover from the US-led international coalition forces, Euro-Med said.

The SDF was established in the city of Qamishli in northern Syria on the 10th of October 2015 to fight against the Islamic State. At that time, they defined themselves as "a unified national military force for all Syrians, Arabs, Kurds, Syriac, and all other components." But the ethnic composition of the SDF forces composition of the SDF forces suggests this is not the case, and it is in fact dominated by Kurdish forces. Currently, 70% of its troops are Kurds, while Arabs and other communities account for just 30%.

In their report, Euro-Med highlighted the continued suffering of thousands of Syrians in the cities of Raqqa and Deir al-Zour following the defeat of the Islamic State in the region and the takeover of the eastern part of Syria by the SDF.

The report authors were particularly concerned by some of the alleged recruitment practices of the SDF. It was alleged that the SDF had been undertaking forced recruitment of civilians in their battle against the Islamic State, even compelling children to fight in some cases.

Other atrocities committed by SDF forces that were brought to the attention of Euro-Med staff included the torture and extrajudicial killing of civilians. A video was recently leaked to the Al Forat Network by a member of the SDF that showed the torture and execution of two Arab youths in an SDF prison. It was alleged that the young men were killed because of their refusal to submit to the forced recruitment campaign.

Euro-Med staff later obtained a different video of a similarly appalling crime. It showed a member of the SDF torturing a girl and a man for refusing to go to a recruitment camp. The video also showed a different masked soldier beating the girl and the man after handcuffing them and insulting them.

The report also referenced a widely-circulated video clip from various social media sites that shows a member of the SDF executing a married couple just for walking past a wall marked with anti-Kurdish slogans.
Another video showed SDF fighters torturing two handcuffed civilians to try to extract the hiding places of Islamic State forces. The video shows one of the soldiers beating a detainee around the head with a plastic chair.

The report also accuses the SDF of preventing civilians forced from their homes by the Islamic State or those who escaped Islamic State-controlled areas from returning to their homes, while also detaining hundreds of civilians in prisons lacking even the most basic amenities.

According to information collected by the Euro-Med from local human rights organisations, the SDF tortured hundreds of displaced Syrians and imprisoned them in detention centres for days on end in the hope of extracting any information relating to the Islamic State.

The Euro-Med report also contains testimony from Syrian civilians suggesting an intentional policy on the part of the SDF to alter the demographic makeup of areas under their control. The SDF confiscated dozens of houses in villages they captured, before annexing them to "self-managed" status within the framework of their planned Kurdish federal territory.

Mohamed Imad, Euro-Med's legal researcher, described recent events in eastern Syria Syria as a serious violation of the most basic legal rights guaranteed by international law. He added that the right to a dignified life, freedom of movement, safe living and access to basic services for Syrian civilians is guaranteed under multiple international agreements, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic and Social Rights, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

"The human and legal violations and executions carried out by SDF members outside the framework of the law represent war crimes and crimes against humanity. They should be held responsible for their actions before the International Criminal Court,"
Imad stressed.

Imad expressed his concern at the uncritical support of the SDF amongst the international community, which continued despite the obvious human rights violations being perpetrated by the opposition group.
The report concludes by calling on the United Nations Security Council to intervene urgently to halt the SDF atrocities. Euro-Med also called for an end to all material and logistical support for the SDF from the international community, as well as an end to all coordinated military operations.

Euro-Med also called on the United Nations to set up a special investigation into the atrocities in Eastern Syria and demanded that the perpetrators appear before the International Criminal Court to face justice for their war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Crimes in limbo: SDF commits horrific crimes against Syrians under the cover of the international coalition
A mere handful of older posts covering the child recruitment. Annexation. Ethnic Cleansing of ordinary Syrians with the help of the coalition. This is one topic that raises my ire, since the apologists have been, in my opinion, doing the dirty work for the coalition. From  5 eyes main stream/alt media through to 'authorities' such as the UN.
"In my opinion, he just obfuscates reality. He is selling the remake agenda under the guise of happenstance and necessary for peaceI ask you, how beneficial is that for the anglo zionist empire? To cover for their plans? To present them as not a plan? Looks to be a win/win for the powers that shouldn't be."
"Ah, yes... everyone’s favoured fighters. Poor, poor victims of US perfidy. Forcibly recruiting Children "

Flashback:The forgotten child soldiers recruited by Kurdish militants in Turkey and Syria

Flashback: Syrian Kurd self-immolates after son recruited by PYD/ PKK

Flashback: Lion Cubs of the caliphate? Who is really recruiting children?

Disinfothama aka Canthama- who constantly gave cover to the ongoing ethnic cleansing in Syria's east. Syriana Analysis (presenting SDF and SAA as allied)  
And others, too numerous to mention.
  • Annexing Raqqa- Ethnic Cleansing & Where's ISIS ?

    " Recall my mentioning the 5 eyes media calling the Kurdish terrorists "landholders"?  Reporting the annexation of Raqqa as liberation or being freed is just more of that misleading language" 

The "glorious Kurds", as Scott calls them, are not glorious- they are simply US backed terrorists. And that's the reality. Same as the reality in Manbij. Not enemy IED. Fratricide. Obfuscated by two governments.

Pentagon FINALLY Admits to Fratricide in Manbij

 Signing off disgusted!


  1. Sounds like Spain 1936. Sounds like Estonia 1940. Same geezers in NYLON responsible. John Company is back with a vengeance. The Hong branch was invited to watch and learn there over ten years ago. One straw in the wind that the 100 years of keeping their heads down is over, is the reemergence of the UK royals as leaders. Anyway it would take for ever to get into the real perps of the coming megadeaths.

    1. Good Morning Incoming :)

      Grrr.... I cannot for the life of me understand why it is people believe so many lies. If I have to read one more comment about the US 'betraying' the Kurdish fighters I'm going to puke!

      Tossing them to the curb
      Woe is them and all that other gibberish- and it is gibberish. The PKK has been firmly in the western pocket for decades and decades. They've been allowed to prosper and profit- They have the ear of the political classes. They have both money and influence.
      This affords them very good PR. Very good.

      Aren't the UK royals tiresome..?
      The way they are promoted?
      It's like a product being sold to the masses.
