NE Syria: Protester Crashed by Turkish Army Vehicle at Birthplace of Woman Politician Raped+Killed

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(*)- As unarmed Civilian People, including Women and Children, were throwing Rotten Tomatoes, Shoes and Stones to armoured Turkish Military Patrols, escorted by Russian mediators, in Semi-Occupied Syrian Kurdish Region at the Country's North-East, from where Anti-ISIS, Kurdish-led Militants have been Blackmailed to Withdraw under Brutal Threats, a Demonstrator was Hit, Crashed, and Killed by a Turkish Military Vehicle, Denounced many converging sources, (including AP, NYT, London-Based "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights",  Syrian Kurdish Leadership, etc).


By a Shocking Coincidence the News arrived at the 30th Anniversary of Berlin Walls' Fall, while Turkey has Invaded North-Eastern Syria in order to Impose a 32 km Thick and 445 km Long "Wall" Separating mainly Kurdish but also Assyrian People Traditionally living accross both sides of the current Turko-Syrian Borderline for Many Centuries, even Millenaries (particularly in the 2nd case : See MAP Infra).



The severely Wounded Civilian Victim later Died, with his Pelvis and Bones Crashed, and a lot of Blood lost by Many Hemorragies, etc., at a nearby Hospital, in that Area of Al-Malikiyah (alias Derik).


This is also the Birthplace of "Future Syria" Party's Leader, Hervin Khalech, a 35 years old Young Woman working for Unity of Kurds, Arabs, Christians, Yazidi, Armenians, etc, according to US Authorities, who was, notoriously, Kidnapped, Raped, Tortured and Murdered by Turkey's Forces earlier, with Horrible Videos posted at the Web showing Islamist Armed Gangs of Thugs, Ankara-backed Proxies, Humiliating and desacrating in Public the Killed Woman's body by Walking on it with their Boots, pointing their Guns at her Dead Corps and Head, etc, (See, f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/turkeyinsyriasanctionsanddamasarmy.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentonsyriankurdishregion.html, etc).


 + By another yet, Topical Symbolic Coincidence, the Arab Name for that Al-Malikiyah area comes from a Murdered Young Syrian Officer, Adnan al-Malki, from a Family faithful to BAATH Party of Damascus, and supporter of the World Famous Egyptian President NASSER, Historic co-Founder and co-Leader of the International "Non-Aligned" Movement (NAM), who was notoriously Critical vis a vis Turkey, but so Friendly to Syria that he had even declared a provisionary "Unity" between the 2 Countries around 1958-1961, and, particularly, Send Regiments of the Egyptian Army in order to Help Defend the Country precisely at those Syrian-Turkish Borders on 1957, when Ankara had again massed its Military Troops threatening another Invasion/Occupation, also in the Past, until he persuaded Turkey to Withdraw ! Currently, Egypt is Still supporting Syria's Territorial Integrity and has Strongly pushed, Recently, inter alia, also inside the "Arab League" a Resolution Condemning Turkey's Military Invasion, urging to Withdraw its Troops, and calling for Measures (including Military) to Help Syria Defend its HomeLand, (See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/turkeyinsyriasanctionsanddamasarmy.html, etc).



++ In Addition, NowaDays, more than 10 Other Civilian Protesters were also Hit by such Turkish Military armored Vehicled "Patrols", and "Hospitalized", according to a Syrian Kurdish Authorities' Press Spokesman and Rojava Information Center, on the spot.

Already, Earlier, at Kobane and elsewhere, Civilian People, Women and Children included, are reportedly Reacting with Vegetables and/or Stones Throwing against UnPopular Turkish Military Vehicle "Patrols", even if they are escorted by Russians, and this was the 3rd such attempt.



(From : "https://syriancivilwarmap.com")


 On the Deadly Incident, (which reportedly took place at the Village of Sarmasakh, part of Al-Malikiyah/Derik's area), Turkey said Nothing, except of merely Claiming that the Military Patrol would have been "Completed as Planned", "Against the Provocateurs", withOut Explaining what it meant exactly. Moscow, apparently, stayed Entirely Silent on that, but Russian President Putin phoned at Turkey's Erdogan, the Next Day. 

>>> Footage from a Video, Examined by "Eurofora", as it was published at the Web and reproduced also by the SOHR, shows a Bare-Handed  Youngster Civilian Demonstrator jumb at a Turkish Military Vehicle, approaching its Window, as if he Wanted to Speak with the Driver, who Accelerates, instead. The Protester seems to Grasp something close to that Window, but is soon Hit by something from inside, and Afterwards he is also been Thrown a Gas Shot towards his Head, Pushing him to Lose Control, and Fall Down, Hirozontaly Accross the Road, where he was apparently run over and Crushed by that Vehicle's Back Wheels. Follows, shortly Afterwards, also a Russian "Military" Patrol Vehicle, which should have probably seen a lot about what happened. Immediately, several People run to try to Rescue the Hit and Fallen Victim, who does Not Move, no more, not even his fingers, appears to have Suffered, and Looks completely KO. Terrified, many Children run away. 





++ Meanwhile, an Important Prison for ISIS' Deadly Islamist Terrorists Cowardly Targetting Civilian People, which is Located in that Area, has Faced one of the Biggest Collective Attempts by Hundreds of Dangerous Jihadists to Escape, earlier this Year (4/2019), reportedly Stopped at the Last Minute, by Syrian Kurdish Reinforcements and US Air Force, etc.*

Many among those Violent ISIS Rioters, who Attacked Simultaneously a lot of Prison's Guards, came, reportedly, from France, where Investigations on the 1st and one of the Biggest Massacres of Civilian People by ISIS' Terrorists, back on 2015, (those of "Charlie Hebdo"s Critical Journalists, and of "Bataclan" spectators, 1 and 11/2015 : respectively 12 + 130 Victims Murdered), were still Continuing, in view of Courts' Judgements, particularly on those who Provided Weapons to the Killers, some of them Suspected to have arrived and/or Escaped through Turkey to Syrian territories then Occupied by ISIS.    

Earlier, from the Beginning of that Controversial and illegal Turkey's Military Invasion in that N/E Syrian Kurdish Region, Air Bombings and Attacks towards anOther Camp of ISIS-relatives Detainees, near Ayn Issa, reportedly about 700 Individuals Escaped, and Afterwards the Camp's Installations (full also of ID documents) were set on Fire, in Addition to even Recent Days' Attempts by Turkey's Forces and Proxy Islamist Armed Gangs to Again Advance towards that area of Ayn Issa, Despite the Fact that it's Located much More Further to the South of the 32 km deep "Zone" that Ankara Claims to seek for alleged "Security" Pretexts. That Camp contained mainly Women related to ISIS' Terrorists, while French Authorities are Still Searching to Find out where is a Woman who reportedly Paid with her Car the Weapons that ISIS' Killers of "Charlie Hebdo" Journalists had Bought, apparently, from a Turk living in Belgium, back on 2015, before she Escapes to Turkey, and Afterwards into Syria's Territories then Occupied by ISIS.                            



+++ Concerning the Area where that Civilian Protester was run over, Crashed and Killed by a Turkish Military armoured Vehicle, Nowadays, (Comp. Supra), by anOther significant Coincidence, its local Population largely stems from Refugees of the Assyrian/Syriac Community, mainly Christians now, i.e. the most Ancient People at Syria's North-East, with a Long History of about 2,5 Thousands of Years, who had been Forced to Leave their Family Homes and Ancestral Land, located Norther, at nowadays Turkey, during the "Assyrian Genocide" (Parallel to the Othoman-Turkish Genocides of Armenians and Greeks of Anatolia, during 1914-1923), pushed to live towards the South, Together with Kurds, Arabs, Armenians, etc. Being one of the First Christian Religious Communities in the History of the World, Surprisingly, they have Also managed to be a Thriving Group in that Agricultural area, (whose  Kurdish Name "Dayrik" stems from the Syriac-Aramaic word for Monastery: "Dayr"), inter alia, also, f.ex. with a "New Church" being Built at Al-Malikiyah City in Recent Years.




 Syrian pro-Government Press Agency "Sana" recently reminded the First International Attempts to Redress the Massive Human Rights' Violations by Turkey against all those Ancient Civilisations' Populations, who had been Forcibly Expulsed from their Family Homes and Ancestral Lands, and/or Massively Massacrated in the 3 Genocides of Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians who lived in Anatolia during Thousands of Years, by Publishing, f.ex., a relevant Map about the Sykes - Picot Agreement of 1916, which was Followed, on 1920, by the International Treaty of Sevres, (near Paris), etc., with obvious aims to Restore the situations existing Before Turkish "Ethnic Cleansing" Brutal and Bloody operations, particularly in the Areas concerned by the Nowadays' series of Tragic Events. But Turkey Never Applied them, Persisting to Expand by Violence, and Keep all its Bloody Conquests there... 




On the Contrary, Nowadays, the Syrian Kurdish Region's Authorities had, anew, to Warn against suspected Turkey's Plans to Impose anOther "Ethnic Cleansing" in that Same Area, Expanding much Further towards the South, and, this Time, reportedly Risking to implicate even some UN Agencies (sic !), on Ankara's attempts to Chasse Away the Diverse Local Populations and "Replace" them by Massively "Importing" Other, Radicaly Islamized Groups, currently Inside Turkey, that it Intends to Transport into the Territories of the Syrian Kurdish Region that it has just Invaded and Occupied : I.e. commiting what is notoriously Condemned as a "War Crime" by the International Criminal Court's legal Statute !...

People in Europe and the World expect from CoE to make a succes of its "Monitoring" for Human Rights and Democracy, despite difficulties, said Finland's President Tarja Halonen to "EuroFora" at a crucial moment for the mecanism built 15 years ago by the paneuropean organization which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2009.

Halonen, known as "Mother" of CoE's "Monitoring" mecanism, a long-time MEP and former Foreign Minister before becoming Finland's President, holds a long experience in the mattter, after also serving twice as CoE and EU Chairwoman in the past. That's why she is well placed to judge how CoE's "monitoring" should deal today with some crucial issues of importance both to CoE and to the EU.

The move came just a Month before a crucial, last visit to Turkey, scheduled for June, by the President of CoE''s "Monitoring" Committee, Ukranian MEP Serge Holovaty, to finalize his Report on Ankara, the CoE Member State with the longest Monitoring procedure. From its results depends its overall credibility.

This is a Test-case, because, in fact, it's in order to avoid Sanctions threatened against Turkey by a CoE's Assembly's April 1995 Resolution for grave Human Rights violations, Democracy gaps, the continuing Military Occupation in Cyprus, the unresolved Kurdish problem, Aegean differend with Greece, etc., that MEPs decided to create, for the 1st time on April 1996, a "Monitoring" proces, allegedly destinated to check, without excluding Countries who did not fulfill all CoE's standards.

In the Past, the obliged withdrawal of Greece's Military regime and of its "Civil" cover-up out of the CoE had helped bring back Democracy in 1974. But, on the contrary, since April 1996, the idea was to "monitor" Human Rights' respect while keeping most concerned Countries inside the CoE. After Turkey's oldest example, this was extended also to several former "Eastern" European Countries, even if CoE's Assembly has imposed to some of them (fex. Ukraine, Russia, etc., after Belarus, Serbia, etc) various "Sanctions", that Ankara always avoided. Curiously more succesful even than .. USA itself, (a CoE "Observer" since 1995), which has been at least threatened with sanctions some years ago..

EU-effects of CoE's Monitoring process became obvious between 2001-2008, since the "closure" of this procedure, when CoE felt that a Country had met most of its Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law obligations, (i.e. the "Copenhagen Criteria" for the EU), helped trigger Negotiations with the EU for "Accession" or other closer relations : This occured already before the 2004 and 2007 EU Enlargements to former "Eastern" European Countries, as well as for the commencement of "accession" negotiations with Croatia, and of "open-ended" negotiations with Turkey in 2005.

    But a stricking new development are Holovaty's recent findings that on core Human Rights issues as Torture and Freedom of Expression, Turkey, even "5 Years after" CoE closed its "Monitoring", back in 2004, inciting EU to start accession Negotiations in 2005, still presents grave problems.

    His findings are of crucial importance after a 2008 CoE Resolution called, "if need be", to "seriously consider the possibility of Re-Opening the Monitoring procedure for Turkey" : A move which might affect Ankara's controversial EU bid, since EU Accession Negotiations are based on the Hypothesis that the Candidate fullfils the "Copenhagen Criteria" (See above)..
    Holovaty expressed his will to check  "Matters still Outstanding" and  those that he "didn't have an opportunity to discuss" at an earlier visit this year, "in order to discuss the more complex issues in greater depth", at his forthcoming New Visit to Ankara, before the December 2009 EU Summit.  This is all based on the 2004 CoE Resolution which stresses that, CoE "will continue.. post-monitoring Dialogue with the Turkish authorities,...in addition to a 12-points list,..and on any Other Matter that might arise in connection with Turkey’s Obligations as a CoE member state".

    CoE's Resolution also asks  from Turkey "to secure the proper Implementation of Judgements, particularly in the Cyprus v. Turkey InterState case", of 2001, which concerns also the plight of many Hundreds of MISSING People. It adds Turkey's obligations to "execute" ECHR's Judgements in the Loizidou case,..and in particular adopt General Measures to avoid repetition or continuation of Violations found by the Court" to the detriment of Refugees.

    Nevertheless, Holovaty said to "EuroFora" that "MISSING" persons,"might be included" and cannot be excluded, but he has yet to examine the situation "to find out  which issues will be raised" to the Turkish Government.

    Therefore, "EuroFora" asked Halonen, as the Historic "Mother" of CoE's Monitoring mecanism, if she thought that, "whenever there are grave Human Rights Violations, as fex. "MISSING" persons, attested even by ECHR's judgements, they should be always checked by a Monitoring process. Or could they be forgotten ?"
     - "We (CoE) must be, at the same time, Fair, Realistic, but not in the mind that "now we have Forgotten", etc., replied to "EuroFora"'s question Halonen, speaking as a matter of general principle.

    - "When we think of those People that are suffering from the lack of Democracy, of Human Rights, and of the Rule of Law", "we should find a base on how to deal with the (Monitoring) system more rapidly"', she stressed.

    - "Sometimes it's very difficult to combine Transparency and Effectivenes together, particularly in this specific case", she went on to say. But, "I have not found a (CoE Member) Country who could be insensitive in this sens", Halonen answered concerning grave Human Rights violations attested by the ECHR.

    - "I have no ready-made answer. I have the expectations that you, in the CoE, will, step by step, find the different types of the monitoring systems."

    Also "because this is a part of the UN's Post-Conflict system, (fex. when it comes to Cyprus' MISSING persons), and it's a more Global system". So that, "If we make a succes in Europe, the others will follow", throughout the World.  "But they expect that we (Europe) are this opportunity, this Opportunity to make a Succes", Halonen concluded.

    In addition, she advised to extend CoE's Monitoring to all its 47 Member States, "because, as long as we hear that, all these monitoring systems are "OK for the neighbor, but not for me", "it's very difficult" to understand. Something which could make easier to Compare...

    Finnish MEP Jaako Laakso, former CoE Rapporteur on the Occupied Territories of Cyprus and one of the 5 Signatories of the Historic CoE's call to create the "MONITORING" mecanism since 1996, was more specific :  - "We (CoE Assembly) have to find a way for the issue of Cyprus' MISSING People to be better followed", he stressed, anouncing his intention to "speak to Mr. Holovaty" about that. "There might be also other ways", added Laakso.

    - The 2008 "Year had been a very Bad one for Turkey with regard to Human Rights in general, and Freedom of Expression in particular", denounced, meanwhile, Holovaty's preliminary Post-Monitoringh Draft Report by Holovaty, published by the CoE on April 2009.

    "Amnesty International believes that freedom of expression is not guaranteed given the various articles of the Criminal Code that restrict it. .. "For example, 1,300 Websites are said to have been closed down by the (Turkish) authorities in 2008" ! While "the new Turkish Criminal Code was used to bring a total of 1,072 proceedings between June 2005 and April 2008, and led to the conviction of 192 people", for expressing views. "Representatives of the Özgür Gündem newspaper, which specialises in Kurdish affairs, ..complained about Numerous Attacks on their Freedom of Expression ...as was everyone who advocated a settlement to the question by means other than the intervention of the army" "According to their figures, 19 Newspapers had been suspended 43 times between 4 August 2006 and 4 November 2008" !...

    Moreover, on 2008,  CoE's "Ministers adopted its 4rth Resolution on the execution of the judgments of the ECHR, ...and outstanding issues regarding 175 Judgements and decisions relating to Turkey delivered between 1996 and 2008...  concerning Deaths resulting from the excessive use of force by members of the Security forces, the failure to protect the right to life, the DIisappearance and/or death of individuals, Ill-Treatment and the Destruction of property". CoE's " Ministers urged the Turkish authorities ...to ensure that members of Security forces of all ranks can be prosecuted without administrative
authorisation" for "serious crimes". Holovaty reminded.

"Nonetheless", Holovaty heard anew of "Several cases of Violence committed last year (2008) by the (Turkish) security forces". Amnesty International speaks of Many Cases of ill-treatment and Torture in the prisons and by the police". "Including, fex."'the death of Engin Ceber, a young man of 29 who died on October 2008 as a result of the TORTURE allegedly inflicted on him by police officers, prison staff and members of the gendarmerie. He was part of a group of people arrested on September 2008 during a demonstration and Press Conference in Istanbul'. Proceedings against suspects are "on-going" in this case.

- " I therefore noted an Obvious Contradiction between the Government’s stated “zero tolerance” policy.... of Torture and other forms of ill-treatment, and the different testimonies given", denounced CoE's Rapporteur.  Turkish "authorities must make considerable efforts to guarantee that proper investigations are carried out into allegations of abuses by members of the security forces and that perpetrators are effectively punished" "In this respect, I have requested detailed Statistics on the number of Investigations, acquittals and convictions in cases involving allegations of abuse in order to show the positive impact of the measures taken to date", Holovaty said, repeating a permanently unsatisfied CoE's demand to Turkey since a Decade...

    - "The Political Crisis that shook the country in the spring of 2008 highlighted the Weaknesses of the (Turkish) Constitution", which comes from the Military regime of 1982, "and the Urgent Need of Reforms", stressed from the outset CoE's Rapporteur in 2009. In particular, "the ...Democratic functioning of state institutions, including the independence of the judicial system, are crucial", he observes.

    But, "the Electoral  system and the ways in which it is circumvented do not appear to give those elected complete Legitimacy, and tend to pervert the course of direct universal suffrage", denounces Holovaty, observing that, even 5 Years later, Turkey did not yet change the 10% nationwide Threshold for a party to take any seat, which is "far higher" than the "3%" maximum in Europe and already condemned as contrary to European Standards by the CoE.

    + Moreover, EU Parliament's 2009 Report on Turkey, drafted by Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten and adopted in Strasbourg on March, expresses "Concern over the Failure of the (Turkish) Judiciary to prosecute cases of Torture and Ill-treatment, the Number of which is Growing". EU also "is concerned about continuing Hostility and Violence against Minorities" in Turkey. It also "calls on the Turkish Government to launch, as a matter of Priority, a Political Initiatve favouring a lasting Settlement of the Kurdish issue, (while "condemning violence.. and terrorist groups"). EU "regrets that No progress has been made on establishing full, systematic Civilian suprevisory functions over the (Turkish) Military".

    The final results of Holovaty's 2nd and last visit to Turkley will be known later this year, and, at any case, before EU's December 2009 Summit.


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
