DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8: 05 A.M.) – Hundreds of civilians of the Yezidi minority have been either displaced or kidnapped in the northern countryside of Aleppo by the Turkish-backed militants, Syria’s Kurdish National Council said.

The KNC accused the pro-Turkey Islamist insurgents of forcing the Yezidis of Elî Qîno village of Afrin district to evacuate their home, and confiscating their olive groves, livestock and furniture.

“We in the Kurdish National Council in Efrin [Afrin] condemn these irresponsible practices by these forces and we demand them to withdraw from the Kurdish area and stop such acts, and allow civilians to return immediately to their villages and return their properties,” the KNC said in an official statement.

Elsewhere in north Aleppo, the Turkish-backed rebels were accused of kidnaping some 55 Kurds from their villages to unidentified destination.

Syrian rebels fighting under the Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield Operation have been fighting the Syrian Kurds in order to prevent them from expanding their territories along the Turkish borders.

Pro-Turkey Islamist insurgents look more to terrorists and criminals ❗

Now that the war booty and oil smuggling is not as profitable in terrorist controlled areas, the criminals are simply reverting to stealing other peoples goods and abductions for ransom. Just as the mask of the US has slipped to expose the face of a rabid dog ( no pun intended with MadDog Mattis ) the deceptively named ‘Free Syrian Army’ is exposed as just a another group of criminal gangs of the type that can be found in any countries around the globe.
