Turkish Aggression in Syria: Discussion on Turkish Attacks in AANES Region
Hosted by the US Mission of the Syrian Democratic Council
When: Friday – November 19, 2021, 10am – 11am

Blaise Miztal, Vice President for Policy, JINSA
Amberin Zaman, Senior Correspondent, Al-Monitor
Sinam Sherkany Mohamad, Opening Remarks, Co-Chair, US Mission of the Syrian Democratic Council

Walk through North and East Syria and you will hear Turkish bombs dropping each day on Syrian soil, causing death, destruction and displacement. Turkey is also launching weaponized drones deep into Syria, targeting civilians living in the semi-autonomous region administered by the AANES and infrastructure that is the region’s lifeline. Syrian towns are also occupied by Turkish military forces and radical Turkish-backed militias.

A ceasefire signed between the United States and Turkey, following the Turkish invasion of Syria in October 2019, is being violated every day by Turkey. Turkey’s aggression has been documented, filmed, and photographed by the media. These attacks destabilize the region at a time when the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are seeking deescalation to enable peace, rebuilding, and recovery.

A new report published by JINSA outlines the accelerating Turkish threat to North and East Syria, maps the transfer of Turkish military vehicles into the border areas and lays out the shockingly long timeline of Turkish drone strikes against the Northeast region.

Now the Turkish military is massing at the Syrian border, seemingly preparing to wage more violence against the people of North and East Syria – people who pose no threat to Turkey

Speakers on the panel discussion will discuss the current situation on the ground, Turkey’s military buildup at the Syrian border, recent threats and hostile remarks by Turkish officials and Turkey’s history of ceasefire violations. A Q&A session will follow remarks by the speakers.

Nov 19, 2021 10:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
