Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights released a report entitled “Killing, displacement and displacement ... the outcome of the Turkish military intervention in northeastern Syria“The report dealt with the military operations launched by the Turkish forces outside its territory during the recent period, especially in northeastern Syria, with the aim of achieving political, military and economic goals, in violation of many international legal treaties and treaties that stipulate non-interference in the internal affairs of countries, including the declaration of non The permissibility of interference of all kinds in the internal affairs of states, which was adopted in accordance with United Nations General Assembly Resolution No. 36/103, and Article Two, Paragraph VII of the United Nations Charter, which provides for non-interference in the affairs of the state of any kind.
The report sheds light on the human rights violations associated with the Turkish military operations in northeastern Syria, as civilians and infrastructure were targeted in northern Syria, and the report also clarified the humanitarian effects resulting from these military interventions, which illustrate the suffering of civilians in northeastern Syria.
Ayman Aqil, head of Maat Foundation, said that the Turkish authorities launched three major military operations in northeastern Syria with the aim of increasing Turkish influence in Syria and achieving a set of political and economic gains at the expense of the human suffering of the Syrian citizens. Aqil added that Turkey is working to settle armed militias and their families in northeastern Syria instead of the indigenous people so that they become an effective tool in Turkish foreign policy that achieves its goals in the various conflict areas.
Aqil stressed that Turkey committed many human rights violations during these operations, including targeting civilians and destroying residential infrastructure, in violation of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and their additional protocols, which stipulate that civilians should not be targeted in situations of wars and armed conflicts.
For his part, Sherif Abdel Hamid, Director of the Research and Studies Unit at the Maat Foundation, said that the Turkish state is exploiting the state of conflict and chaos in some countries and using it as an excuse to intervene in the internal affairs of these countries in order to sow chaos and instability in the region as a whole. Abdul Hamid added that many indicators show that Turkey intends to continue its expansion in the region, and that this expansion has become part of its political and strategic doctrine to consolidate regional influence, under the government of the Justice and Development Party, led by Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Abdul Hamid emphasized that the Turkish state, through the "new Ottoman" project and strategy, is interfering in many Arab countries, by supporting parties, militias and outlaw regimes, with the aim of spreading chaos and undermining the sovereignty of those countries and dividing homelands. And that those who follow the Turkish military and economic interventions in the region will discover a Turkish presence and expansion in Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Qatar, which results in many human rights violations.
