227 civilians killed in occupied Afrin, including 32 children

At least 227 civilians have been killed and 638 others wounded in Turkish occupied Afrin during the past 1,5 years.

The Turkish invasion of Afrin has left one and a half years behind. During this period of time, the Turkish state has committed numerous crimes and massacres. Afrin Human Rights Organization has documented the crimes since the first day of invasion.

According to an ANHA report based on data from Afrin Human Rights Organization, 167 men, 28 women and 32 children have been killed since the launch of Turkey’s invasion attacks against Afrin on 20 January 2018. A further 638 civilians were injured, of whom 87 are children.

Afrin Human Rights Organization also documented over six thousand abductions, who again include children. The fate of 3,000 abducted civilians remains unknown.

The occupation forces have cut down 15,000 olive trees in the occupied Afrin territory. 15,000 juniper trees and 10,000 grapefruit trees were plundered by the occupation forces. According to the recorded date, 3 to 5 million trees were plundered by the invaders.

Only 160 are left of the total 300 olive plants in Afrin after its occupation. The Turkish state held to these plants to ransom, causing a decrease in the soap production in the canton. A 25 percent decrease has been recorded in the production of commercial products.
