YPG/PKK terrorists ‘raze 330 houses’ in Syrian village

By Muslum Etgu,

Sanliurfa, Turkey: YPG/PKK terrorists are expelling Syrians from their homes and have so far razed 330 houses in one village alone in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor region, Syrian refugees have told Anadolu Agency.

Some families from these invaded villages have now sought refuge in Turkey, and 15 of them live in tents in the southeastern province of Sanliurfa.

Refugee Naser Saleh told Anadolu Agency they first had to live through the oppression of Daesh terrorism in their country and now they were being subjected to YPG/PKK cruelty.

Saleh said YPG/PKK terrorists were expelling villagers from their houses after invading their villages.

He said the terrorists also seized whatever was inside the houses and did not even allow them to harvest crops in their own fields.

“After they expelled us from our houses, they destroyed 330 houses in the village using heavy machinery,” Saleh said.

He said YPG/PKK terrorists also took away one of his relatives by force and killed him, adding they did not even hand over the body of the victim.

“We could only find his bones after a while,” Saleh said.

US support slammed

Saleh also criticized the U.S. support for the YPG/PKK terror group.

“The U.S. supports YPG/PKK, but it is us Syrians who suffer because of it,” he said.

He said he and his family decided to take refuge in Turkey because of the YPG/PKK terror group and would return only when their village was cleared of terrorists.

Another refugee Hasina Mohammed said they were living in tents in the wintertime because of the YPG/PKK.

“If the YPG/PKK had not taken over and demolished our house, we would not be living through such difficulties with two little children,” Mohammed said.

She thanked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for opening Turkey’s doors to them.

“If the YPG/PKK leaves the region tomorrow, I would not stay here even for a minute and run back to my homeland,” she added.

Launched on Jan. 20, the Turkish-led Operation Olive Branch aims to clear Afrin, northwestern Syria — just across the Turkish border — of PYD/YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists.

The PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU, has killed nearly 40,000 people, including women and children in its more than three-decade long campaign against Turkey.
