“100.000 Syriac and other Christians will be killed or driven away if Turkey invades“, Christians from Northern Syria write in a letter to the Christians in the United States. “Turkish forces hunted down the Christians and Yazidi’s of Afrin in Northwest Syria. They will do the same again but at a much wider scale”, they continue.
“Turkish forces are standing ready and are waiting for the US to leave so that they can kill us and destroy our communities and Churches. This disaster against our people will happen while the US Army will be standing by in Iraq at a few hours driving distance. Basically, the US Army will be looking on at a very short distance while Turkish-backed jihadists commit exactly the same crimes as ISIS,” Co-President of the Federation of Northern Syria Sanharib Barsoum says.
The alarm of the Christian community arrives after Trump’s decision to pullout the US troops from north of Syria. Previously The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said that Turkey will launch a military operation against the Kurds in northern Syria within days
