The MİT agent who infiltrated the German police

The Turkish-German Police Chief who was removed from duty for working for MİT is revealed to be Döndü Yazgan. Yazgan used to attend meetings by pro-AKP institutions frequently. Her last position was the Wiesbaden Police Harmony Chief.

The Welt am Sonntag newspaper published on Sundays in Germany published an article yesterday about a Turkish-German police chief stationed in the state of Hessen frequently meeting MİT agents and that the chief in question had since been removed from duty.

The Turkish-German police chief’s true identity hadn’t been revealed and she was referred to as “Semra Melek”. The article stated that she contacted the MİT over the Turkish consulates in Frankfurt and Mainz. Sources from Hessen who spoke to the ANF on condition of anonymity state that the police-chief-turned-MİT-agent is Döndü Yazgan.

GOLD STAR PERSONNEL OF DİTİB AND THE CONSULATE

Wiesbaden Police Harmony Chief Döndü Yazgan had a tight relationship with the AKP regime in recent years. One of AKP’s flagship newspapers, the Sabah, frequently published praising articles on Yazgan, who was also an important personnel for the Union of European Turkish Democrats (UETD) and DİTİB, two of the Erdoğan regime’s institutions in Germany.

Yazgan frequently visited DİTİB’s Central Mosque in Wiesbaden. Yazgan participated in the female congregation’s meetings and events as a police chief, supposedly carrying out this activity as part of “harmony efforts”.

SHE INVITED TURKISH POLICE TO GERMANY

Police Chief Yazgan acted as a bridge for the joint projects the Turkish and German police carry out. Most recently, Yazgan led the joint efforts between Mainz and Wiesbaden police and the Turkish police in December 2016.

She acted as the moderator in a workshop titled “Together for security” on December 9, 2016, and Security Affairs Directorate Foreign Relations Vice Chair İlyas Özgentürk, Public Security Branch Vice Chair Raşit Poyraz, Siirt Community Policing Director Mustafa Durmaz and Çankaya District Police Chief Rüstem Özbek attended the workshop.

Police Chief Yazgan was the star in activities of the UETD, AKP’s lobby organization. Yazgan attended UETD and DİTİB events in and around Wiesbaden, and attended former Frankfurt Consul General İlhan Saygılı’s farewell visits to the Turkish community along with UETD Frankfurt official Abdul Akpinar.

HESSEN POLICE CHIEF TRIED TO SUPPORT HER

Döndü Yazgan was born in Ankara, and moved to Germany when she was very young. Her career in the German police began in 1994. After she invited Turkish security units to visit Germany in December last year, German intelligence launched an extended security investigation on Yazgan. The report prepared after the investigation pointed to Yazgan’s relationship with the MİT agents in Germany.

Welt am Sonntag wrote in yesterday’s edition that after the report in question was sent to the German Interior Ministry, Hessen State Police Director Sabine Thurau and Hessen State Office for the Protection of the Constitution Chair Robert Schäfer intervened. Both police chiefs requested the removal of negative statements about Yazgan from the report.

But the units that prepared the report didn’t let the matter go and prepared a new report on the Turkish-German police chief, and as a result the informant officer was removed from duty. An anonymous source spoke to the newspaper and said, “It is clear that the police officer being a woman has given her a positive spin and helped obfuscate her true role.”

MİT ATTEMPTED TO INFILTRATE GERMAN INTELLIGENCE

By early July, MİT’s attempt to infiltrate the German domestic intelligence organization, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, was exposed. MİT attempted to carry out the infiltration over job applicants to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the intelligence office posted job openings and the Turkish-speaking applicants turned out suspicious in the inquiry.

German intelligence considered the applicants’ ties with the MİT and rejected the applications. The MİT had attempted to infiltrate German police and intelligence agencies in the past through Turkish interpreters, and many interpreters were exposed and removed from duty.

British man who fought against Isis in Syria is arrested by Turkish authorities over ‚terrorism‘

Exclusive: Joe Robinson, who fought with the Kurdish YPG, was detained while holidaying on the Aegean Sea

https://www.thesun.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/nintchdbpict000342243194.jpg?strip=all&w=702&quality=100

A former British soldier who fought against Isis in Syria alongside a Kurdish militia faces terrorism charges after being arrested in Turkey while on holiday with his girlfriend, The Independent has learned.

Joe Robinson was detained at the resort of Didim, on the Aegean coast, with Mira Rojkan, a Bulgarian living in Leeds, along with her mother who had accompanied them. Both the women were subsequently released, but the Turkish authorities have stated that 23 year old Mr Robinson, from Accrington in Lancashire, is being investigated in connection with terrorist offences and is likely to face charges.

The government of Recep Tayyep Erdogan is engaged in an increasingly violent conflict with Kurdish separatists in Turkey and Syria, and thousands of Kurdish nationals are in jail under a state of emergency. Mr Robinson has served with the YPG, the armed wing of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party which has repeatedly clashed with Turkish troops operating in Turkey, as well as its allies in the PKK in Turkey.

Ms Rojkan, who studied law at Leeds University, and had carried out voluntary work for Amnesty International, was questioned by Turkish officials on whether she had any links with subversive groups. The country director for Amnesty International was arrested earlier this month in Istanbul with a number of other human rights workers. More than 50,000 people remain in prison in the country in the crackdown which followed last year’s failed coup.

On Friday night Ms Rojkan said: “It was just awful. They said someone had sent them an email saying we were terrorists about to do something in Turkey. They wouldn’t say who it was from. It is absolute nonsense. They arrested us on the beach while we were vacationing with my mother.”

Mr Robinson, who had served with the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment in Afghanistan in 2012, decided to join in the fight against Isis in summer 2015. He was arrested at Manchester airport on suspicion of terrorism offences when he returned five months later. He was subsequently on police bail for 10 months but no charges were laid against him.

The Foreign Office in London said: “We are aware of the detention of a British national in Turkey and have requested consular access”. A Turkish defence official said: “The YPG is the PKK by another name and the PKK is considered a terrorist organisation not just by us but the UK as well. Of course anyone fighting with a terrorist organisation will be investigated and there is a strong possibility of charges and a long sentence if he is found guilty”. Mr Robinson’s Facebook page, which charts his journey from the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, to Didim with Ms Rojkan, was closed down yesterday.

Mr Robinson had said he had joined the fight against Isis after being deeply affected by atrocities committed by the Islamist extremists and the tipping point was the beach attack at Sousse in Tunisia in which 39 British tourists were murdered in June 2015. The following day he left the country after telling his family that he was going to join the Foreign Legion in France.

Last year, in newspaper interviews, he spoke about his motivation for joining the YPG and his reaction to being detained by British police. “I went to Syria to fight against terrorism and to protect the civilians caught up in the fighting who had to endure the most horrendous experience and living conditions imaginable” he said.

“I love my country, I am ex-military and served my country in the Afghanistan conflict, but to be accused of terrorism by the same country I fought for for simply trying to help those in need has been extremely harrowing and made me think twice about the morals of the government in the UK. If they charge me with terrorism then the British government should be charged with terrorism because the YPG is a coalition ally.”

Mr Robinson said he had befriended a YPG supporter on Facebook and made his way to join the Kurdish group after meeting up with two Americans heading for the same destination during a stopover in Germany. He said “ I am very proud to fight Isis. I have no regret, whatever may happen as a result.”

Turkey releases 39 ISIS suspects in Antep

39 people arrested in the ISIS trials were released yesterday in Antep.

The wife of Yunus Durmaz, who is known as the suicide bomber who planned the Suruç and October 10 Ankara attacks, was among the suspects released in the hearing held yesterday in Antep High Criminal Court No:8.

Kurdish YPG expects conflict with Turkey in northern Syria

https://linksunten.indymedia.org/image/133913.jpg

The head of the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia said on Wednesday that Turkish military deployments near Kurdish-held areas of northwestern Syria amounted to a “declaration of war” which could trigger clashes within days.

Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus retorted that his country was not declaring war but that its forces would respond to any hostile move by the YPG, which he described as a small-scale army formed by the United States.

The mounting tensions between two U.S. allies in northwestern Syria risk opening yet another front in the multi-sided conflict, in which outside powers are playing ever greater roles.

They could also distract the YPG from the U.S.-backed campaign it is spearheading to capture Islamic State’s stronghold of Raqqa, some 200 km (125 miles) away.

Asked by Reuters whether he expected a conflict with Turkey in northern Syria, where the two sides have exchanged artillery fire in recent days, YPG Commander Sipan Hemo accused Turkey of preparing for a major military campaign in the Aleppo and Afrin area.

“These (Turkish) preparations have reached level of a declaration of war and could lead to the outbreak of actual clashes in the coming days,” he said in emailed comments. “We will not stand idly by against this potential aggression.”

Turkey’s policy in northern Syria has been focussed on containing the growing sway of Kurdish groups that have established autonomous regions since Syria’s war began in 2011.

Ankara says the YPG represents a security threat, seeing it as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which has been fighting an insurgency against the Turkish state for decades.

“This is not a declaration of war. We are making preparations against potential threats,” Kurtulmus told Reuters in an interview. “Their (YPG) primary goal is a threat to Turkey, and if Turkey sees a YPG movement in northern Syria that is a threat to it, it will retaliate in kind.”

President Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was ready to carry out ground operations against Kurdish forces in northern Syria along with the rebel forces it backs there if necessary.

“If there is a threat against us, our troops will conduct any operations with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) on the ground,” he told France 24 television in an interview shown later on Wednesday.

Turkish forces deployed in northern Syria last year in support of FSA groups in an operation that forced Islamic State away from the border and also drove a wedge between YPG-held areas.

In recent weeks, Turkey has sent reinforcements into the area north of Aleppo, according to Turkey-backed rebel groups who have established control over a section of the Turkish-Syrian frontier with Ankara’s support.

Hemo was last week cited as saying the YPG had a plan to capture that area between the towns of Azaz and Jarablus. Asked about that remark, he described the Turkish intervention as “occupation” of Syrian land, and said the YPG had never “threatened Turkey or its security”.

LONG-TERM PLANS

Turkey, a NATO member, has been incensed by the U.S. decision to ally with the YPG. Washington took the decision to arm the group before the final assault on Raqqa began in June.

The YPG is fighting under the banner of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which includes Arab fighters.

In separate comments to the Saudi-owned Asharq al-Awsat newspaper published on Wednesday, Hemo said the United States had established seven military bases in areas of northern Syria controlled by the YPG or SDF, including a major airbase near Kobani, a town at the border with Turkey.

Citing operational security, the coalition said it did not confirm or deny information about “specific capabilities, force numbers, locations or movement of forces in Iraq and Syria”.

Hemo indicated the YPG would keep fighting Islamic State even after its defeat in Raqqa, saying it was committed with “the international coalition to cleansing Syria of terrorism and establishing a political system capable of achieving real democratic transformation”.

Turkish defence ministry sources said last month the United States had pledged that weapons provided to the YPG would be taken back once Islamic State was defeated. Turkey says that is not credible.

“There has never been an incident where a group in the Middle East has been armed, and they returned the weapons,” Kurtulmus said. The United States “have formed more than a terrorist organisation there, they formed a small-scale army.”

He also warned the YPG not to try to drive out Arab or Turkmen residents from the town of Tel Rifaat, which is close to Afrin and controlled by YPG and Arab allies in the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has left open the possibility of longer-term assistance to the YPG, saying the U.S. may need to supply them with weapons and equipment even after the capture of Raqqa.

Hemo said U.S. officials had denied any intention to take away the YPG’s weapons and that the YPG would be needing more support due to its longer-term plans to tackle the remnants of Islamic State.

Mustafa Karataş was exposed during his espionage activity in Hamburg, Germany and voice recordings of his conversations with a high ranked MİT official have surfaced. The recordings the ANF is in possession of show Karataş planning how he will deliver the information and documents he gathered on Kurdish politicians to the MİT.

Mustafa Karataş is originally from Çorum, Turkey and has been living in Hamburg for years. He was exposed during his espionage activity against Kurdish institutions when voice recordings of a call between Karataş and a MİT official surfaced. Representatives from Kurdish institutions held a press statement yesterday and called on the German judiciary to action.

In the 18 minute recording, Mustafa Karataş and two people are constantly exchanging information. Karataş is presenting the MİT administrator with information and documents and promising that he will provide any and all information on Kurdish politicians. Karataş and the MİT official are heard travelling in a car while they talk. Kurdish politician Zübeyir Aydar, KCDK-E Co-chair Yüksel Koç, Die Linke MP Cansu Özdemir and former HDP MP Sevahir Bayındır are mentioned numerous times in the recording and Mustafa Karataş promises to gather any and all information and documents on Kurdish politicians. Karataş also admits to working for the German police for money and claims that he facilitated the arrests of Kurdish politician Bedrettin Kavak and other Kurdish politicians.

DIRTY PLANS FROM KARATAŞ AND MİT OFFICIAL

Some of the dialogue between Mustafa Karataş and the MİT official in the recordings ANF acquired are as follows:

MİT official: Mr. Mustafa, we will come and pick up the information, the documents. Wherever it is, it doesn’t matter. I can come anywhere. It’s not a problem. You will see me today like this, and tomorrow it will be different.

Mustafa K. It should be so.

MİT official: You can see me like this as well. These are not issues. There are one or two others who know of our mission. There aren’t many, and there’s no need for that. We will speak with the relevant people. You will be given an alternative in regards to support, there are no issues there, the financial side is not a problem.

MİT official: If you want to deliver the information and documents we need I will come and pick them up, in any way possible.

….

MİT official: Do you have any information on Zübeyir Aydar, did you do anything?

Mustafa K.: I don’t have information on Zübeyir Aydar. I know Yüksel Koç well. He was the chair of NAV-DEM and now he’s heading the KCDK-E.

Mustafa K.: I gave you the list…

MİT official: Yes, yes, I relayed it to the Gentleman but…

Mustafa K.:
The names on that newspaper…

MİT official: I relayed it to Mr. Cemil. I gave the information to Mr. Cemil…

Mustafa K.: I can give all these in photos as well as names.

MİT Official: I’m telling you, I will come. I will come as a garbage man, as a mechanic. I will come in any way I want and take them, that is not an issue.

Mustafa K.:
OK.

Mustafa K.: Then he told me “I will introduce you to someone.” Just the week when he was going to bring it, a friend of ours here is worried now that Mehmet Fatih Sayan has been arrested. He messaged me, told me to stay away, and he was coming in Monday. I took some money from him.

MİT Official: Now, let me tell you. I will fly to the Hague shortly and come back. There I will speak to the higher-ups about this matter in detail.

Mustafa K.: Sevahir Bayındır.

Mustafa K.: Sevahir Bayındır is the women’s representative of the ___ now.

MİT official: For the whole of Europe…

MİT Official:
But we aren’t in a situation to do a pinpoint on Sevahir Bayındır now. We need certain, concrete information. There is the lack of opportunity to inform us at least 3 hours before. It is not clear where she’s staying today, where she’s staying tomorrow.

Vorbereitungen auf einen türkischen Einmarsch in Afrin

Der Journalist Seyit Evran analysiert die türkischen Vorbereitungen für einen Angriff auf den Kanton Afrin. Er stellt die Frage nach der Haltung Russlands und des Westens zu einer solchen Operation und erläutert, mit welchen Gruppen die Türkei den Angriff plant, 04.07.2017

Die Vorbereitungen der Türkei für einen Einmarsch im nordsyrischen Kanton Afrin und der Region Shahba sind im vollen Gange. Die Gebiete, von denen der Angriff ausgehen soll, wurden zur militärischen Sperrzone erklärt. Dörfer, die sich im Gebiet der Sperrzone befinden, werden aktuell geräumt. Wie die Haltung Russlands, der USA und anderer westlicher Länder zu einem solchen Einmarsch sein wird, ist noch nicht abzusehen.

In den letzten 15 Tagen haben die Vorbereitungen für den erwarteten Angriff der Türkei auf Afrin deutlich an Fahrt aufgenommen. In Orten wie Ezaz, Exterin, Rai, Cebel Akil, Bab und Marea werden hierfür derzeit militärische Stützpunkte ausgehoben. Parallel dazu hat die Türkei bestimmte Gebiete zu militärische Sperrzonen erklärt. Dörfer, die in diese Gebiete fallen, werden geräumt. Vielfach handelt es sich dabei um kurdische Dörfer. In den verlassenen Dörfern lassen sich militärische Einheiten der Türkei samt ihrem schweren Geschütz nieder. In den nächsten Tagen wird der Beginn des Angriffs erwartet. Erste Angriffsziele dürften dann die Orte Shahba und Tall Rifaat sein.


Der schwierige Bündnispartner Ahrar al-Sham und Wege der Einigung mit Al-Nusra

Bei ihrem ersten Einmarsch in Syrien im August 2016 hat die Türkei vor allem auf die russische Unterstützung gesetzt. Die Türkei sollte im Gegenzug hierfür dazu gedrängt werden, die bisher von ihr unterstützten FSA-Gruppen zu Terroristen zu erklären und die Fortführung der Herrschaft von Assad zu akzeptieren. Das war nicht der einzige Preis, den die Russen für den türkischen Einmarsch in Dscharablus verlangten. Es wurde auch über Aleppo verhandelt und im Endergebnis sorgte die Türkei dafür, dass die Gruppen der FSA in der lange umkämpften Stadt die weißen Fahnen hissten. Mit türkischer Unterstützung übernahm das Regime die Kontrolle über Aleppo. Dafür durfte die Türkei mit russischer Genehmigung ein begrenztes Gebiet im Norden Syriens unter ihre Kontrolle bringen, um so eine mögliche Verbindung zwischen Afrin und den übrigen Kantonen zu kappen.

Die Türkei versuchte ihrer Intervention stets den Schein zu geben, als handele es sich um eine gemeinsame Aktion mit der Freien Syrischen Armee. Dies tat sie, um mit dem Syrienkurs ihrer NATO-Partner nicht zu kollidieren. Doch die sog. FSA-Gruppen, die von der Türkei stets präsentiert wurden, waren im Wesentlichen niemand anderes als die Truppen von Ahrar al-Sham, also der militärische Arm der syrischen Muslimbrüder, sowie einige turkmenische Kampfverbände.

Vor ihrer letzten Intervention versuchte die Türkei zunächst die Nusra-Front und Ahrar al-Sham unter einem Dach zu vereinen. Weil sowohl Russland als auch die USA allerdings die Zusammenarbeit mit Ahrar al-Sham ablehnten, bemühte sich die Türkei ihrem Partner ein anderes Erscheinungsbild überzustülpen. Das hinderte die Islamisten allerdings nicht daran, in den Gebieten, die sie gemeinsam mit der Türkei eroberten, ihre Scharia-Gerichte zu errichten. Die Türkei ist sich im Klaren darüber, dass diese Praxis international auf Ablehnung stößt. Aus diesem Grund hat die Türkei ihren Partner nun vor der Afrin-Offensive zu einem Statement gedrängt, in welchem diese erklärten, dass sie in Zukunft auf verfassungsrechtlicher Grundlage und nicht auf Basis der Scharia Gesetze erlassen würden.

Parallel zu diesen Bemühungen ihren islamistischen Bündnispartnern Legitimität zu verleihen, sucht die Türkei auch erneut verstärkt den Dialog zur Al-Nusra Front. Denn die Türkei würde gerne den Al-Kaida Ableger in Syrien in die Operation auf Afrin integrieren. Zu diesem Zweck führten türkische Verantwortliche in der vergangenen Woche in Antep Gespräche mit der Führungsriege der Nusra Front. Die Message, die dem al-Kaida Ableger auf dem Treffen vermittelt wurde, dürfte wie folgt lauten: „entweder agiert ihr so, wie wir es von euch verlangen, oder wir machen euch gemeinsam mit Russland platt.“ Da nun in den letzten Tagen al-Nusra gemeinsam mit Ahrar al-Sham Dörfer in Afrin bombardiert hat, können wir davon ausgehen, dass die Drohungen Wirkung gezeigt haben.

Die russischen Beziehungen zu den Kurden Rojavas

Russland zielt darauf ab, seinen Einfluss in Syrien stetig auszuweiten und agiert dementsprechend flexibel. So suchte Moskau auch mit Beginn der Revolution von Rojava den Kontakt zur PYD. Es wurde eine Vielzahl von diplomatischen Gesprächen geführt und eine Vertretung der Rojava-Verwaltung in Moskau eröffnet. Auf militärischer Ebene kam es ab 2013 zu ersten Kontakten, die zu einer punktuellen Zusammenarbeit führten. Doch die Zusammenarbeit wurde zunächst sehr diskret gehalten. Erst als die USA mit dem Widerstand von Kobanê offen Beziehungen zu den kurdischen Einheiten aufbauten, hatte Russland auch kein Problem mehr damit, ihre Zusammenarbeit mit den Kurden öffentlich zu gestalten.

Die kurdische Seite hat seit Beginn der Revolution an ihrem Kurs des dritten Wegs festgehalten. Doch die russische Annäherung an die Kräfte Rojavas stand immer im Lichte des Versuchs, die Position des syrischen Regimes zu stärken. Die Vertreter Rojavas haben diese Annäherung abgelehnt, was Russland dazu bewog, mit Drohungen und Erpressungen den Versuch zu starten, die Kurden gefügig zu machen. Die jüngste Frucht dessen ist der „freundliche“ Hinweis der Russen auf die türkische Gefahr, mit welcher das Projekt Rojava konfrontiert ist. Auch einen Ratschlag, wie man diese Gefahr bannen könne, hatte Moskau parat: Die Zusammenarbeit mit dem syrischen Regime.

Die Türkei hingegen begibt sich gerne in die Rolle, die ihr Russland aufträgt, und zieht derzeit ihre schweren Waffen für den Angriff auf Afrin vor dem Kanton zusammen. Russland hatte zuvor in diesen Gebieten ihre eigenen Soldaten stationiert, die scheinbar einen Pufferschutz vor einem möglichen türkischen Angriff darstellen sollten. Doch nun könnte es passieren, dass Russland diese Soldaten abzieht und somit dem türkischen Angriff vollständig grünes Licht gibt.

Entscheidet sich Russland für diesen Schritt, könnte das aber auch zu einem Eigentor werden. Denn wenn die Kurden nicht vor den Forderungen Russlands einknicken und sich auf die Verteidigung Afrins gegen den türkischen Angriff einrichten, könnten sie gegebenenfalls auch um die Unterstützung der US-geführten Koalition bitten. Kommt es dann zu dieser Unterstützung, würde das dann Russlands Einfluss in dem Gebiet deutlich schwächen.

USA und die westlichen Länder

Doch wir müssen auch festhalten, dass bislang auch die Haltung der USA und der westlichen Länder zu einem möglichen türkischen Angriff auf Afrin nicht abzusehen ist. Das einzige Statement aus diesem Lager lautete bislang, dass man keine Aktion dulden werde, die den Kampf gegen den IS schwächen würde. Mit diesem Statement haben die USA und die Internationale Koalition die Türkei zumindest wohl ein wenig ausgebremst.

Wir können also sagen, dass trotz der anhaltenden Kriegsmobilisierung der Türkei der Angriff auf Afrin zumindest ins Stocken geraten ist. Eigentlich wollte die Türkei ihre Besatzungsoperation am 27. Juni starten. Dazu ist es nicht gekommen. Die Gründe sind unklar. Der Druck des Westens kann ebenso Ursache dafür sein, wie ein Umdenken Russlands. Erdoğan hat in den letzten Tagen Trump angerufen. Auch ein Anruf bei Putin wird erwartet. Und in beiden Gesprächen ist die Operation auf Afrin sicherlich ein zentrales Thema. Der türkische Präsident versucht die Erlaubnis für den Startschuss einzuholen.

Natürlich müssen wir auch sehen, dass diese Kriegsdrohungen aus Ankara genau in die Zeit fallen, in welcher die Demokratischen Kräfte Syriens, zu denen auch die YPG und YPJ gehören, dem IS in seiner vermeintlichen Hauptstadt das Leben schwer machen. Diese Kriegsgebärden Erdoğans als indirekte Unterstützung für den IS zu werten, ist deshalb nicht von der Hand zu weisen. Zumal der türkische Präsident in der Vergangenheit auch auf viel direktere Weise den IS unterstützt hat.

Egal welches Szenario nun am Ende eintritt, die Türkei also tatsächlich den Angriff wagt oder doch einen Rückzieher macht, die Verteidigungseinheiten von Afrin und Shehba bereiten sich auf die Verteidigung ihrer Heimat vor. Und es sind nicht nur die Kurden, die dies tun. Auch die Araber, die Turkmenen und die übrigen Völker und Stämme des Kantons befinden sich bereits in der Verteidigungsposition. Greift die Türkei also an, müssen wir uns auf erbitterte Kämpfe vorbereiten.

Im Original ist die Analyse am 03.07.2017 unter dem Titel “Türkiye’nin Efrîn’i işgal hazırlıkları” auf der Seite der Nachrichtenagentur Firatnews erschienen.
