Afrin

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:15 P.M.) – The Turkish military and its proxies currently controlling the northern Syrian city of Afrin continue to inflict huge damage upon historic and archeological sites in the city.

Recently, a group of Turkish soldiers along with its backed Syrian militants have destroyed Saint Maron church located in Brad village of the Shirawa district.

According to local source, the vandals stole several artifacts which belong to the church.

Afrin, a city in northern Aleppo, was seized by the Turkish Army and other rebel groups in March 2018. By then, it was under the control of  People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Women’s Protection Units (YPJ).

A Kurdish-language media outlet quoted local sources in Afrin as saying that the Turkish Army has turned the historical site in Jandariseh into a military base for its soldiers.

According to the sources, the Turkish military was seen building three-meter-high walls near the base. The move comes after the Turkish Army troops were accused of destroying artifacts in the Afrin region of Aleppo to build a base.

Hagia Sophia is in Turkish occupied Greece, not in Turkey. And they have desecrated the cathedral with shitlamic plastering… Imagine if Masjid al-Haram in Mecca got the same treatment from either Hindus or Christians, or even more funnier, from an Atheist like me making it the biggest brothel on Earth making the minarets really look like giant dïcks, Mussies would feel exactly like how Orthodox Christians feel with Hagia Sophia desecrated and with minarets around 😁😁😁😁😁

Typical Islamist behaviour for 1,400 years… The not so far day the whole world will reject Islam, they will feel really sorry, but it’ll be their own fault. There are already many countries banning burqa/niqab/abaya, Italy has already de-rated Islam from “religion” to “sect”…
Yeah, go ahead, and better prepare to see mosques burning all around the world soon up or later…

Idlib first and then Afrin later, if Russia allows it.
