Hundreds of civilians killed and wounded, over 300,000 displaced
International aid groups have left and winter is approaching.
In clear violation of international law and despite a chorus of international condemnation, the Turkish military continues its unprovoked aggression against Rojava/North & East Syria, conducting a campaign of indiscriminate violence and ethnic cleansing. Since 9 October, Turkish forces and their jihadist proxy militias have killed over 400 civilians and injured hundreds more, and over 300,000 civilians have been forced from their homes as the invading forces use air power and heavy weapons to attack the region.
Reports and video footage of human rights violations, including executions and the abuse of the corpses by invading forces, are a horrifying reality of this invasion. The ongoing violence targets residential areas, schools and hospitals and threatens the lives over 5 million people in the formerly stable and peaceful region.
In the wake of the initiation of this brutal invasion, safety concerns have driven many international aid groups from Rojava/North & East Syria. Kurdistan Red Crescent (Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê) remains in the region to coordinate relief efforts and provide medical care, and we need your help. Our workers are now targeted by the invading forces and have been killed and captured while providing relief services and medical care. Despite the risks, we will continue to do everything possible to address the unfolding humanitarian crisis. With winter approaching and temperatures falling, our efforts to aid the displaced people of the region are even more critical.
By donating to Kurdistan Red Crescent, you can help our workers on the ground in the Rojava/North & East Syria provide desperately needed assistance.
