Stop Turkish invasion of Rojava

This petition had 430 supporters

Dear friends,

August 2016 marked the start of the Euphrates Shield campaign to secure an 'Terrorist free border zone'. The Turkish army backing various FSA (Free Syrian Army) groups cleared the border area of Daesh.

The two bordering territories now are Rojava and Government-held territory. Since the recent Al-Bab operations the Turkish backed groups alongside the Turkish state have penetrated into Rojavan territory, capturing and torturing prisoners with the intent of demoralizing the Kurdish controlled territory of Syria and undermining the territorial integrity of Syria.

Turkey no longer has a border with the Islamic State and is now officially attacking Rojava which is currently undergoing the fiercest fight of all: fighting for Daesh's capital Raqqa. I call on the #UN and #POTUS to call to an end to Turkey's inhumane acts on Syrian land already liberated from Daesh with the intent of territorial expansionism.

Rojava has proven to be the West's greatest ally on the ground against Daesh and was notorious for its swift advances against the terrorist organisation and we should not lose our greatest ally. Please save Rojava and its territory before it is too late. Sign the petition!
