Turkish-Backed Forces Execute Head Of Pro-SDF Syrian Political Party

Hevrin Khalaf. Source: Hawar News Agency (ANHA)

Secretary General of the Future Syria Party, Hevrin Khalaf, was captured and then executed by Turkish-backed forces, the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) announced on October 12.

In an official statement, the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) revealed that Harvin was ambushed and captured by Turkish-backed militants on the M4 highway in northeast Syria. Harvin was immediately executed by the militants, along with her driver.

“This is a clear evidence that the Turkish state is continuing its criminal policy towards unarmed civilians. Professor Hevrin Khalaf, was the Secretary General of the Future Syria Party, a party with a political orientation towards Syria in general, is far from military agendas,” the SDC’s statement reads.

The M4 highway, which links al-Hasakah, Raqqa and Aleppo, was blocked by the Turkish-backed National Syrian Army (NSA) in the early hours of the morning.

Following the SDC’s announcement, opposition activists released videos showing Turkish-backed militants capturing and executing civilians on the highway. One of the videos shows an armored SUV that was reportedly carrying Hevrin.


Formed in 2018, the Future Syria Party is one of the biggest Arab political movements in northeast Syria. The party is a key ally of the Kurdish-dominated SDF, which controls the region.

Ankara is yet to comment on the murder of Hevrin, who had criticized and condemned the Turkish-led Operation Peace Spring in northeast Syria.

if you travel in an armoured suv, maybe it’s assumed that the party being driven around is part of the enemy forces – but executions at the side of the road, nahh maybe not! although it might tell us that the turkish backed forces are nothing but jihadists/terrorists on the loose.

Codenamed 'Gordon'

Anyone knows that the Turkish backed forces are the same orcs who graze in Idlib and who does theory and practice of decapitation taught in the schools of the Muslim brotherhood

igybundy

I think these are part of the more moderate less ruthless who give anesthesia and only cut off children’s heads group.. They were not allowed into the mens club in idlib… Hey even terrorists have standards..

EveryoneIsBiased

” although it might tell us that the turkish backed forces are nothing but jihadists/terrorists on the loose.”
Better late then never Werner. Nice you finally woke up from Turkish propaganda.
Erdogan Turks are the enemys of everyone besides Muslim brother Jihadis.

verner

turkey will behave and once the kurds are contained it will be back behind the turkish borders and the kurdish issue an issue for Assad. erdogan doesn’t do anything that can enrage putin and erdogan is gearing up for a final assault on israel – he favours a one state solution and that is not the israeli preferred one state solution, but the one where the squatters are sent onto their next diaspora. and the plan is that turkey, iran, hezbollah, syria iraq und zu weiter will do the deed to make the jews homeless once again. and my guess is that it will be started with a rain of long range missiles from the caspian sea on tel aviv and prove to the world that the iron dome is just the iron doooom kabooooom and off they go, the squatters.

russ

About the time Erdogan will do right is approximately the same time half of his leg is ran through a wood chipper.

roland

Wishful thinking Erdogan is in bed with isreal

JohnZ

Correct.

verner

don’t be silly, about as much in bed with israel as iran is and that, you can bet your broad behind on, is not the case. and turkey is just biding the time till they can eviscerate israel from the middle east map – erdogan is all in favour of a one state solution and it ain’t israel as the one state – how ’bout dat!

roland

What a politician says to his people and what he does are two very different things if he really wanted Israel gone he would have sided with the Syrian government Hezbollah and Iran in this war but no he enthusiastically ran with Israel in their attempt to take control of Syria and he’s still helping the Zionist headchopers as we speak

verner

erdogan has more than once explained his contempt for israel and that he would like to see it go. this has been a problem for the unhinged states of A and nato but they’ve been restrained by the more important issue to keep turkey in nato since turkey is one of the pillars of that organisation, not that it has any particular say but since it’s the corner pillar towards the east with armed forces to be reckoned with. this is i.a. illustrated by trump’s decision to leave the kurds in turkey’s hands.

roland

All the Arab leaders have at one time or another has being critical of Israel actions speak louder than words and ergodin has done nothing to fuck Israel. Ever if he was really an enemy of Israel turkey would be being sanctioned to death like Syria and iran

You can call me Al

hmmmm, we knew they were jihadists/terrorists from the beginning.

Icarus Tanović

Wahhabi monsters.

Zionism = EVIL

I told you folks ages ago that Turkeys are the number one Wahhabi terrorist state now after taking the dubious honor from Saudis and Pakistan. The “Turkish backed forces” are nothing but Daesh headchoppers rebranded and they will commit even worse atrocities as the stupid Kurds misjudged the whole situation and thought that the dumbass backstabbing Americunts and Zionist parasites will help them “achieve a state”. The only option for the weak Kurds is go beg Assad and Shia militias to help them and start a asymmetrical war in areas that still have some Kurdish population left. The main problem now for both Syria and the Kurds is that a large chunk of northern Syria will be turned into a mega Wahhabi terror state. This is exactly the kiss of death the old Jew devil Kissinger was talking about when he said that “being a friend of US is a kiss of death”. The Kurd turds who are in full flight now and dug their own grave and this the beginning of a regional nightmare. I am sorry to say that I was right!

Icarus Tanović

That so called ‘mega Wahhabi state’ will colapse within its self, and if is that ‘mega Wahhabi state’ what is then Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE?!
All Muslims are against Wahhabism, as well as other good people. People are realizing that Wahhabism isn’t any good, and that isn’t Islam at all, that that is something created in CIA laboratories to wreck havoc among Muslims, among SSSSR, all people in middle east, and all over the World.
If they could they’d pop up theirs ugly head already in Venezuela. Who doesn’t understand that Wahhabis are menace to the World, he is stupid, coward or malicious.
There’s noy gonna be any Wahhabi state in any part of Syria. Wait and see. Be patient and smart.

FlorianGeyer

Ironically, it’s lapses of military discipline like this within the Turkish proxy head choppers that may force Trump and the UK to directly fight against Turkey.

The images of such barbarism is ok with the West when its the Assad loyalists being murdered, BUT the Kurds have been idolised by the Western media and such images cannot be suppressed in the West for very long I suspect.

Three NATO members ‘head to head’ with Turkish S400’s knocking US and UK aircraft out of the sky’s would be a joy to see and Popcorn time as well :)

Xoli Xoli

USA alone can finished of Turkey in minutes but USANATO will never ever attack Turkey. It is a game plan for exit strategy. Trump said USA cannot fight other peoples endless wars let the neighboring countries take over.He made it clearly that Kurds never supported USA in WW1 and WW2.
Unfortunately it is war cause by greed people good and bad people have to die.Lastly only evil Erdogan under hidden agenda can fight USA NATO terrorists.

Icarus Tanović

Yeah.

AleK

Nothing new for “Free Syrian Army”, they can change their names, but they are still jihadi idiots… I guess Erdogan won’t be happy, more bad PR for Turkey…

S Melanson

Oh no, they are totally different, as they have a different name – the National Head Chopping Army versus the Free Syrian Head Chopping Army versus the Al Nusra Head Chopping Army versus the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham Head Chopping Army and so on…

FlorianGeyer

These are Democratic Headchoppers I think.

AleK

*Free Democratic Peace Loving Environmental Headchopper Army of Jihad. (Democratic Jihad)

S Melanson

How could you and Florian forget the most important word, they are the Moderate Democratic Army of Jihadi HeadChoppers (TM*)

* Trade Mark of CIA Industries, the world’s number one manufacturer of failed states thanks to magnanimous CIA funding of the CIA’s signature job training program called “how to become a headchopper”. The only job training program that boasts a guaranteed 100% job placement in the field of expertise – headchopping! **

** Guarantee is voided in the case the CIA no longer needs you…

This is a message from Pompeo, Chairman of the Board off Directors of CIA Industries, sent with heart felt ‘conditional love and kisses’

Ross

Yes it’s good to see that they have taken on the green agenda. Think how much CO2 a bullet round releases into the atmosphere! Head chopping is carbon neutral, sustainable and actually good for the environment! Well done those head-choppers! They must be in line for the Greta Thunberg prize!

John Wallace

Oh , if they are democratic then it is fine. As long as they take a vote as too who will chop the head off then there is no problem. It is when someone is Dictated to chop off a head is the problem.

Zionism = EVIL

Turkeys have been supporting Wahhabi headchoppers since Erdogan’s AKP was funded by them and created by the CIA and Zionists. You guys need to understand that these situations don’t happen overnight but are part of a coordinated Americunt and Zionist plan to redraw the geo-political map of the middle east and eastern Europe. Sadly, Putin is part of the problem as we have seen in Syria and coddling of Turkeys and even Saudi headchoppers. There are very dark ahead as the Americunts are building strike troops in Saudi Arabia for attacks on Yemen and even Iran, if the so-called Axis of Resistance does not inflict some pain. The two missiles fired on the Iranian oil tanker in the Red Sea were a Saudi/Zionist operation to damage Iranian limited oil exports and tanker fleet. The Zionist agenda is to get the Americunt dumbasses totally involved in a regional war in the Arab and Muslim world.

He’s just a paid troll, hopefully he got fired.

Tommy Jensen

China has a more human solution for brainwashed radicals.

Sage Durham

Like harvesting organs? Raping women? Ahem

RichardD

If she was in an armored suv there were probably guns in it. So there may have been a fire fight involved. Summary executions of people captured on the battlefield who’ve been disarmed is clearly a war crime.

Until further evidence is presented it’s to soon to pass conclusive judgement on what happened.

Feudalism Victory

Gosh the Americans from thousands of miles away weren’t going to stay forever and guard your state against all the powerful neighbours who want to destroy it? Jeez the first time he hinted at withdrawal those fools should’ve fled back to assad. No one else is going to help. Maybe the Kurds in iraq are smarter one of their factions abandoned Kirkuk after they started waving Israeli flags around.

I feel sorry the kurds are getting killed but bush let Saddam gun em down after the first iraq war. Prudent planning should’ve covered this eventuality. Hope is not a plan. Certainly driving around the buffer zone is stupid…why not high rail it south? Or off road not the main highway. Anyone else whose made anti Erdogan comments should be hiding. That makes them terrorists to him.

I also notice movement on clearing out the al.tanf camp. I’m sure a plan of shortening lines around the major oil deposits is in the works. Perhaps the Saudis should engage in some prudent planning..

You can call me Al

In Al Tanf, there are thousands more of the anti-Assad vermin, that of course will meet and join the freed escaped ISIS members.

All part of the plan.

RichardD

It looks like the rear window was shot out. So it probably wasn’t an armored suv. And what looks like the dead driver doesn’t appear to be wearing a bullet proof vest or any security equipment. The available evidence so far is it was an ambush of a civilian vehicle.

You can call me Al

But, but, but :

Kurds (Kurdish: کورد‎, Kurd) are an Iranian ethnic group native to Western Asia. Geographically, this mostly mountainous area, known as Kurdistan includes southeastern Turkey, northwestern Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria.

Tommy Jensen

Then some Americans arrived and told them they could get their own land and get rich.

russ

phuck I should have started some sort of net work marketing there. Amway?

russ

…but we(US) told them “You can trust us”…

BMWA1

Using green energy??

FlorianGeyer

Of course :)
Rendered down human fat for diesel is very green indeed :)

How many Kurds per mile do you get ?

S Melanson

Unfortunately, or should I say as expected, the US no longer needs you came before you got your land of milk and honey – now it is the land of bullets and blood, also expected in keeping with ‘you reap what you sow’. Turkey will do the reaping on the Kurd’s behalf…

RichardD

This is the SDF version of events. If they can prove it it looks like a war crime.

“It is with great sorrow and sadness to receive the news of the martyrdom of the Secretary General of the Future Syria Party, Hevrin Khalaf on the morning of October 12, 2019. She was taken out of her car during a Turkish-backed attack and executed by Turkish backed mercenary factions on the International Road between Qamishlo and Manbij, where her driver who was also martyred.”

war crimes are for the deluded righteous poor feckers (african tribal leaders) while the true criminals (israel’s idf and iaf and mossad) get away with anything with impunity – that’s the way the cookie crumbles now a days, unfortunately.

RichardD

A war crime is a war crime. But you’re right about the prosecution problem.

verner

an american women, married to an american diplomat, ran down a person while driving a car this last september. naturally, the diplomatic status of her husband might extend to her but not necessarily. nevertheless, she was quickly brought back stateside with no intention of coming back and stand trial. this is just one of many instances where the unhinged states of A avoids the law by bringing the american party back home. the thing happened in London, uk. apropos prosecutorial difficulties!

FlorianGeyer

In reality, her husband was not a diplomat, he was a NSA employee spying on US citizens under the cover of the UK GCHQ.

https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/

“The only people I know of who effectively enjoy secret diplomatic immunity are spies from CIA/NSA like Jonathon Sacoolas or from Mossad like Shai Masot. There are not any other categories of pretend diplomats having immunity, and the elaborate charade to pretend that there are is a nonsense.” Craig Murray

Turkey is a walking talking war crime…

If this is the vehicle that she was in it looks like it was an armored suv.

What’s shocking here? Jihadis are doing jihadi thing. Chopping head of POWs. I don’t see amnesty international or other NGOs. Imagine if it was SAA…

Valerianus Maximus

Exactly, and they’re all enemies of the Syrian Arab Republic. Who cares if they slaughter each other?

mogol_gr

Unarmed citizens.

RichardD

Both the front and rear windows appear to have been shot out. If that’s the case. Both her and the driver were probably hit while they were still in the suv. Though some of the damage may have occurred after it was stopped.

mmmm, and who paid a few hundred thousand USD for the armoured SUV ,I wonder?

RichardD

If it was that expensive she’d still be alive. It didn’t even have run flat tires. Something in that price range would be able to out ram and out run what the militants were likely driving. And the rear window wouldn’t have been blown out.

It looks like there’s collision damage on the driver’s side. So there may have been a ramming. The phone service may also have been down. And if they didn’t have a secure radio or satcom link. They were at a disadvantage.

Judging from the position of the driver on the ground right next to the door and the blown out rear window. They may have both been shot before the vehicle stopped.

RichardD

I’ve had the car carriers that I was driving at the time. That weigh 45,000 lbs empty and 80,000 lbs when they’re loaded to the axel ratings. Hit by passenger sedans that totaled them and only scratched the paint on the truck with no structural damage.

The first time I was T boned broadside. It hit the front crossmember on the trailer that the tonge is welded to. The second time I was rear ended when the trailer was empty. They might as well have hit bridge abutments.

Turkish backed FSA..are just terrorist like ISIS and Nusra!…when Turks take all that Kurdish SDF areas we will see HTS and ISIS deployed there!

Hevrin Khalaf wanted to disintegrate Syria breaking Syrian into smaller and smaller pieces and invite the IDF into Kurds territory to conduct more operations throughout the region.
Hevrin Khalaf was truly an enemy of the Syrian people. This is great news!

Valerianus Maximus

Yes, that is the essential point to understand. All those groups that stabbed the Syrian Arab Republic in the back are traitors and are getting exactly what they deserve. To say so implies no bias toward anyone or anything beyond the integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic.

But how to get rid of Turks?? After that.

Koerd-TSK( ಠ ͜ʖಠ)PKK molester

another terrorist leader bites the dust. so far 3 YPG commanders and one SDF terror party leader neutralized

Man that molester part in your name is correct, I wonder if Turkish is in there somewhere…

Damien C

The Kurds have been naive in the extreme, they were quite happy to take Syrian arab land and Syrian oil well with the aerial might of the USA behind them. Many times the Damascus government reached out to the Kurds and many times that hand of freindship was pushed away by the Kurds under instruction from the US puppet master.
They were warned over and over again that this would happen but refused to listen.

Now the head-choppers of Ildib are queuing up to fight for the Turks in Northern Syria as Ildib gets squeezed. I wonder how many of the scum now executing Kurdish civilians in the streets were let go by the Kurds from Raqqa in 2017 to attack Deir ezZor

russ

I guess they ran out of Syrian stolen oil to black market to Turkey so Erdogon doesn’t have use for them anymore.

Phoron

Bashi-bazouk hard at work in Syria, probably frustrated because none of the promised sheep and goats materialized as war booty.

russ

That bloody Assad… he’s looking pretty good about now isn’t he Kurds??? YOU phucking idiots, trusting us(US)… Congratulations, you are keeping our history streak alive… Another “ally” another sucker.

Zionism = EVIL

The Kurd turds are pathetic morons who fell for the Americunt and Zionist trap and were used as human condoms and then trashed. Their only option is to go back and kiss Assad’s arse, and join the Axis of Resistance and get rid of Zionist scum from Arbil or much worse is yet to come.

Gabriel Hollows

And nothing of value was lost.

russ

I would love to see Nuttyahoo, Salmin, Erdogan and about half of USless govvy, UK pervament put in a arena and fight to the death with machetes and the winner get fed thru a wood chipper…

This is what we in Christian nations(no bias intended) call a come to Jesus moment for the Kurds…

GiGi dreyfuss

yeah sure , you forget who dump them!?

Hmm…now which religion hates Jesus that much? Been dipping into the Babylonian Talmud again, Shlomo?

RichardD

Judging from the amount of miracles he worked he easily could of. But choose death instead. Some people are like that.

Tudor Miron

Thing is that USA would be openly confronting SAA if it would attempt to regain control over SDF held areas. Now with USA being forced out of equation there will be jihadi rats in place of Kurds. UK/US will find it much harder confronting SAA liberating those areas when time will come. Rats will reap what the sow.

Andre Lopes

The SDF kurds had their chance when ISIS was being defeated. They had the chance to make an agreement and join Syrian Army, but no. They choose independence knowing that Turkey would never accept that. The Kurds really screwed their chance.

Tudor Miron

Independence? You must be kidding me :) How one can call that independence when their existence is totally dependent on US?
In other words – yes, they had their chance for autonomy within Syrian state but they screwed it out of greed and stupidity.

FlorianGeyer

Tudor, your general knowledge and English language skills qualifiy you to have a post in the Russian Federation diplomatic corps, in my humble opinion. :)

Tudor Miron

Thanks, but I will stick to race engineering. Also I would be more like that https://youtu.be/4LIckoJI9Gs which was later moved to deputy position. He wasn’t being diplomatic enough. I loved that guy :)

FlorianGeyer

Yes, he says it as it is.
An honest man.

Tudor Miron

Thank you Florian.

seawolf

Diplomacy and emotions doesn’t work together. But then again how do you call people without emotions? Are they human at all?

JohnZ

Indeed, yes. Consider the amount of oil stolen out of Syria with tanker trucks provided by western oil companies such as Exxon and BP until Russian pilots used them for target practice and left many hundreds of bombed out burned out hulks by the highway.
Boycott Exxon and BP.
