The U.N. said more than 130,000 people have fled since the Turkish [Peace Spring] operation began. As Syrian Kurdish forces fall back, there are fears that those who remain will end up like the residents of Afrin, a Kurdish enclave in northwestern Syria seized by Turkey and its Syrian allies early last year.
Rights groups say the Turkish-backed fighters looted and destroyed the property of Kurdish civilians in Afrin. Last month, a U.N. commission said the overall security situation in and around Afrin ”remained dire ” as armed groups carved out their own fiefdoms. The Rojava Information Center said some factions have imposed a strict form of Islamic law.
“There is a general absence of rule of law and repeated incidents of kidnappings, torture, extortion and assassination,” the U.N. commission said, adding that victims were “often of Kurdish origin as well as civilians perceived as being prosperous, including doctors, businessmen and merchants.”
Does Turkey acknowledge any of this as a problem? And if they do, have they laid out any law & order plans for the wider "safe zone" they claim along the entire border? (Note that Afrin was taken in early 2018 following Operation Olive Branch; the news above is from this month, and the UN report on Afrin is from September this year. It does not seem to differ too much in its assement of Afrin from a report released in the summer of 2018.)
