"As my colleague and friend already said today, for sure Turkey isn't attacking alone, they brought with them all these jihadist friends to the Rojava's border, northern Syria. So they are attacking with these jihadist militias. Since (Turkey) is a NATO member we would like to ask a question to the other NATO members: 'How come a nation member of NATO can attack civilians with jihadists; can attack a coalition which fought against the Islamic State?' In my opinion this question is really important, how can a country like Turkey at this point still easily conduct genocide in the 21st century? In Afrin the same thing happened, killing everything not only the population, but also animals, they bombard everything. For this reason we again call upon the international community to immediately stop the Turkish attacks and create a buffer zone for northern Syria."

"Certainly we have a huge army, we have lots of weapons, but only for land fights. If America had provided us with air artillery against airplanes, it would have meant America wanted to stop this war, but this is not the case."

"We have had some news from Turkish media saying that the Turkish government says that for this operation they have already asked NATO, and the international community and everyone agrees with this operation. So, since the international community was in alliance with us when we eliminated together the Islamic State, the question is now 'are you with us or with the jihadists?"
A Kurdish military commander demanded on Thursday the creation of a buffer zone between Syria and Turkey to protect the Kurdish population from attacks by Turkey, calling for an immediate halt to attacks.
Speaking to reporters at the Italian parliament, Kurdish military commander Dalbr Jomma Issa accused Turkey of attacking Rojava's border with the help of jihadists.
"Turkey isn't attacking alone, they brought with them all these Jihadist friends to the Rojava's border," said Dalbr Jomma Issa.
"How come a nation member of NATO can attack civilians with jihadists, can attack a coalition which fought against the Islamic State?' In my opinion this question is really important, how can a country like Turkey at this point still easily conduct genocide in the 21st century?" she said.
"The question is now are you (international community) with us or with the jihadists?" added Ahmad Yousef, reported member of the Executive Board of Northern Syrian Federation, accusing the international community of supporting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
In a move to excise a US backed Kurdish militia, Turkey launched an incursion into northern Syria on Wednesday that frustrated lawmakers in Washington who had hoped to prevent an abandonment of an important ally against Islamic State militants.
Turkish artillery and warplanes pounded parts of northern Syria controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led group of militias that have for years received backing from the United States.
The operation comes after US President Donald Trump's administration in effect said this week it would allow a Turkish incursion into Syria, as the US withdrew its troops.
