The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) strongly condemns the continuing aggression and military invasion led by Turkey against Syria, which has led to hundreds of dead civilians and new waves of uprooted persons.

We also reject the position of the International Organizations which did not condemn this new aggression against the People of Syria, verifying that their concern about the human rights and civilians’ protection is hypocritical.

Syria Self AdminSeven days after the start of the Turkish aggression, supported by militias and its mercenaries on the north and east of Syria, the humanitarian situation facing our displaced people from the areas affected by the aggression has worsened, amid the complete interruption of humanitarian aid and the suspension of all international organizations and the withdrawal of their staff from the autonomous areas. In northern and eastern Syria.

The number of people displaced by the Turkish aggression has reached more than 275,000, including 70,000 children.

Following Turkey’s military invasion of Syria on Wednesday, October 9, the International Relations Committee of the Communist Party of Israel (CPI), released the following statement:

“With the blessing of the US imperialism, Turkey has launched new military operations in northern Syria against the country’s people. This latest invasion is a blatant and flagrant violation of international law and the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria. Turkey’s invasion comes at a time when a glimmer of hope had appeared for the termination of the long bloody war.

SANASyrian Arab Army units began moving north to confront Turkish aggression on Syrian territory, SANA’s reporter in Hasaka said on Sunday.

Upon the announcement of this news, the people of Hasaka began celebrating in the neighborhoods of the city, welcoming this move to confront the Turkish aggression.

Video footage now shows us another horror perpetrated by U.S. imperialism and its local allies.

Civilian deaths, as well as those of military personnel, are now mounting as the blitzkrieg unleashed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of the right-wing “Justice and Development” Party (AKP) penetrates deeper into northern Syria, with the stated intention of destroying Kurdish forces there and then settling Syrian refugees, currently  stranded in Turkey, in the area.

Britain's Communists have condemned the Turkish invasion of north-east Syria as a 'blatant and barbaric violation of Syria's national sovereignty'. Carol Stavris told the Communist Party of Britain's political committee that such a flagrant breach of international and humanitarian law cannot go unchallenged.

More support needed for democratic forces

German MEP Özlem Alev Demirel has laid out the steps in which the European Union must follow in response to the Turkish army’s violation of international law by invading Syria.

From the early hours of Wednesday, the people of the region are witnessing a new imperialist crime with Turkey’s new invasion in Syria.

An invasion that began with the blessings of the USA and takes place within the context of the imperialist competitions in the region. This development in itself reveals the false arguments of the Greek Government on the occasion of Pompeo’s visit to Athens, where they attempted to present the USA-NATO as «Pigeons of Peace». Before the ink dries, it is revealed the magnitude of the risks for the Greek people because of the Greece-USA Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement – MDCA.

According to reports, at 15.00 on August 31, two USAF aircraft carried out a raid on the command centre of the Hurras al-Deen armed group located 7 km northeast of the city of Idlib. US Central Command spokesman Lt. Col. Earl Brown said the operation targeted “al-Qaeda leaders responsible for attacks threatening US citizens, our partners, and innocent civilians.” He added that “the removal of this facility will further degrade their ability to conduct future attacks and destabilise the region.” Lieutenant Colonel Brown further said that the United States and its “allies and partners will continue to target violent extremists” because “northwest Syria remains a safe haven” for terrorists.
