Turkish Forces ‘Violently Suppressed’ Anti-Occupation Protest In Syria’s Al-Bab

Meet the former US-supported FSA, now the Turkish-backed FSA, who have been committing war crimes in Syria for years.

Turkish forces have suppressed dozens of civilians who took to the street in the northern Syrian city of al-Bab to protest against the Turkish-occupation, Rear Admiral Alexander Karpov, the deputy head of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, announced on March 3.

“In the locality of al-Bab, about 150 people went to a rally calling for the withdrawal of pro-Turkish units and the return of territories under the control of Damascus,” Kaprov said in a statement.

According to the Russian commander, five locals were wounded during the protest, which was “violently suppressed” by Turkish-backed militants.

Kaprov said that the protest was motivated by the humanitarian crisis developing in al-Bab city and other Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria.

The Russian Reconciliation Center’s statement was quickly dismissed by the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army. A spokesman for the faction said that the statement is filled with “lies” and “fabrications.”

The Turkish military and its proxies occupied al-Bab city after a battle with ISIS more than three years ago. Since then, the city has been in a permanent chaos.

Last month, several Syrian pro-government and opposition sources claimed that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to launch a large-scale operation to liberate al-Bab. Earlier, the army deployed large reinforcements near the Turkish-occupied city.

Russia is clearly keeping an eye on al-Bab, and so do Syrian government forces. Any movement from the locals against Turkish forces will likely encourage Damascus and its allies to undertake more active actions to liberate the city.
