Turkey Is Planning Genocide in Northern Syria

Turkey's proposed 'buffer zone' in Syria

Kurds, Christians, and Yezidis in Northeast Syria are at grave risk of genocide by the armies of Turkey and Syria.

The genocide will be supported by Russia and Iran. Turkey and Iran have sizable Kurdish minority populations,

which they consider threats to ethnic and national unity. 100,000 Christians live in the area Turkey will invade.

Turkey and its predecessor, the Ottoman Empire, have a century old history of genocide against Christians.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has announced his intention to create a “twenty-mile buffer zone” in

northeastern Syria, an area now controlled by the Kurdish and Arab Syrian Democratic Forces.
