Warning Shock Video - Turkish Soldiers Mutilated Female Kurdish Fighter

When Turkish President Erdogan sent his army into northern Syria two weeks ago to fight the Kurdish forces gathered at its southern frontier (much to the dismay of its NATO colleague the US, who accused the Turks of dropping the ball on ISIS), he decided to name the operation ‘Olive Branch’.

Many will wonder whether that name can stand now that a video showing Turkish soldiers mutilating the body of a fallen female Kurdish fighter is spreading all over the internet.

Turkey claims is it fighting the PKK, which both the US and Europe agree is a terrorist group, but the YPJ, which was backed by the US in its fight against ISIS, says the Turks are targeting them, simply because they are of Kurdish origin.

And now, the Turks have been caught red-handed showing laughing and mutilating the body of fallen female YPJ soldier Barin Kobani, a well-known member of the Kurdish all-female unit.

As you can see in the rather graphic video, the footage shows a group of soldiers standing around the bloodied body of a woman lying on the ground. Parts of her torso appear to have been cut out with a knife.

YPJ fighter Ms Kobani fought in Raqqa against ISIS and against Al Qaida in Afrin. The Syrian Kurds are outraged after the images spread over the internet.

Turkey has not yet reacted.

The YPJ all female commander Ms Amed Kandal said: “Their behavior is far from humane, and we are not afraid of such incidents.”

“What the Turkish state is doing is barbaric and far from humanity, and the Turkish military commits the most heinous crimes.”
