As the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)’s Syrian offshoot, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), is being encircled in Syria’s Afrin, it has forced children it kidnapped to take up arms as the terror organization trains them to become militants in terror camps.
PKK/PYD terrorists have been forcing children, especially girls, to take up arms. As they have previously done in the southeastern trenches, the terror group is said to have deployed children to the frontlines.
Children are brainwashed after undergoing an intense program that in time will turn them to either suicide bombers or American mercenaries. Pained families await the rescue of their children from the hands of the terror organization.
Fighters at the ready
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) continues to deploy forces to the Afrin border as the Turkish operation in the northwestern district looms. Convoys of artillery and trucks were moved to the Azaz- Afrin border by opposition forces, as they await orders regarding the Afrin operation to be launched against the PKK/PYD terrorists.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984. More than 40,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the three-decade long conflict.
People of Syria’s Manbij call on Turkey to rescue city from PKK/PYD occupation
The people and notables of the Syrian city of Manbij, which is currently occupied by the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)’s Syrian offshoot, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), have called on Turkey to rescue their city from occupation. As Turkey prepares to launch the Afrin operation, Manbij will be a crucial next step in eradicating PKK/PYD terrorists from northern Syria. In a letter sent to Yeni Şafak, the people of Manbij signal that the time to clear the city from PKK/PYD terrorists has come, pledging support from the local population for any upcoming operation led by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF). “The PKK carries out executions, forcefully extoll payments; they’re kidnapping our kids to fight with Turkish soldiers; Manbij is literally ready to explode. We call on [President] Erdoğan; please rescue us from the PKK. In the name of region’s population, we want to be rescued from the PKK affliction and put an end to the occupation. We’re ready to break the PKK’s link to Hasakah. The organization is summoning reinforcements to Manbij from Ayn al-Arab and Qamishli. Over the past two years, hundreds of Arab youth have abandoned their weapons and deserted the front group called SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces] that became a tool in the American ploy. Over the past week, over 200 youth left the PKK and fled. The terrorists are attacking those who defected from the PKK. In the past two days, four Arab youth were killed and seven were injured. As the region’s tribes, we’re regularly in touch,” read the letter.1 child killed, 5 injured in PYD/PKK attack in SyriaTurkmen leaders hail expected Afrin operation‘Six hundred terrorists in Manbij’“The terror organization sensed that we are in the midst of preparing a team and this situation causes them serious discomfort. There are 600 PKK terrorists in the Manbij region. They have been trying to reinforce their positions over the past few days, but Afrin is of greater importance to them that they don’t pay much attention to Manbij. We’re also capable to launch an attack from here when Turkey begins the Afrin operation. At present, we have 300 soldiers and we have set up a secret operation chamber. We want to be in touch with Turkey with regards to the issue of weapons and munitions. When battle begins, we will have no trouble finding soldiers,” the letter continued.‘We need your help’‘The Turkish army is stationed only 20 kilometers away from us. We want you to know that Manbij constitutes an easier target than believed for the Turkish soldiers and Free Syrian Army (FSA) units. Not only will the PKK be eradicated from Manbij in a matter of a few hours, they will be forced to abandon the whole of the western Euphrates. We will never abandon our resolve to have Manbij become part of the Euphrates Shield region. We ask of our Turkish brothers to please hear our call and rescue us from oppression. They are trying to brainwash our youth into fighting Turkish soldiers. They’re sending them to die in Afrin. We need your help to rescue the Kurdish, Arab and Turkmen population of Manbij from the PKK, which is the enemy of humanity and religion,” concluded the letter.The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States.

1,000 PYD/PKK terrorists deployed in Syria's Tal Abyad
Nearly 1,000 PYD/PKK terrorists have been deployed in the town of Tal Abyad in Syria’s northern city of Raqqah following stepped-up U.S. reconnaissance activity in the area.According to sources in Tal Abyad, columns of U.S. armored vehicles entered the town -- which remains under the control of the PYD/PKK (under the guise of the so-called SDF/PKK) -- on Jan. 12 and 16.The 1,000-strong PYD/PKK deployment comes after U.S. armored vehicles carried out two days of reconnaissance activity along Syria's border with Turkey.The PYD/PKK terrorists were deployed after U.S. forces scouted out both sides of Tal Abyad’s border crossing with Turkey's southeastern Sanliurfa province.The terrorists were reportedly redeployed from the village of Ayn Isa south of the nearby city of Kobani (Ayn al-Arab in Arabic).The PYD/PKK has reportedly dispatched reinforcements to ten villages in the area, including Quneitra and Tal Fender near the Turkish border.The latest deployment has raised the average number of terrorists deployed in each of these areas from 15 to almost 100.On Thursday, the Pentagon changed the name of a planned "border security force" tasked with training local security forces, saying that, rather, the U.S.-led coalition was training members of the PKK/PYD-led SDF to serve as a "stabilization force".The name change followed an earlier announcement by coalition spokesman Ryan Dillon that the coalition planned to create a 30,000-strong force to police Syria's northern border.On Wednesday, both the Pentagon and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stressed that the U.S. was not creating an "army" of "border force" per se.The PYD/PKK is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist group, which has been designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.Since the mid-1980s, the PKK has waged a wide-ranging terror campaign against the Turkish state in which an estimated 40,000 people have been killed.More than 1,200 security personnel have been martyred since July 2015 alone when the group resumed its armed campaign against the Turkish state following a fragile cease-fire.
