​​​​​​​From Arab belt project to spread Turkification policy in Syria

With the escalation of attacks by the Turkish occupation state against the regions of NE, Syria, Turkish plans and projects that Turkey seeks to implement in the region are also unfolding.

On October 27, the governor of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), Abdullah Areen, met with representatives of mercenary gangs from the remnants ISIS mercenaries, in addition to the head of the so-called “Provisional Government” of Turkey, Abd al-Rahman Mustafa Turkman, of Turkish origin, in the city of GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed.

According to the decisions and results of the meeting, the GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed City Council was established with a Turkmen majority.

In the city of al-Bab, which was handed over by ISIS mercenaries to Turkey, and sponsored by officials of the Justice and Development Party, on November 24, the regular meeting of the Syrian Turkmen Council was held.

Among those who participated in the meeting, according to the leaks, Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Yaoz Salim Kran.

During the meeting, the head of the Turkmen Council in Syria, Dr. Muhammad Wajih Juma, who was appointed by the Turkish state, said, "If the buffer zone is established, we are fully ready to go and settle in those areas urgently."

Wajih Juma, who has long been a member of the Turkish Intelligence Service (MIT), has been presiding over the Syrian Turkmen Council for several years, and during the last elections he was reappointed again as Speaker of the Council by the Justice and Development Party.

Mercenary gangs such as Sultan Murad Gang, Sultan Suleiman Shah, al-Fatih Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih, al-Montaser be al-Allah, Samarkand and al-Hamzat, were all established and organized by Turkish intelligence, and during the attacks of the Turkish occupation these groups were deployed to strategic locations.

The border crossings located in the occupied areas, which are strategic areas for the transit movement, were handed over to these groups. During the control of ISIS mercenaries over GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed, the Aga Qala crossing was continuously open to mercenary movement, and after the liberation of GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed by the SDF, the crossing was closed by the Turkish state

After the occupation attack on the ninth of October of this year, the Aga Qala crossing point was again placed at the service of mercenary gangs.

According to the information obtained, the Turkish state included the crossing for Sultan Murad Turkmen group for its protection and supervision.

The Turkish state has intentionally brought in and brought the remains of ISIS mercenaries who belong to Turkmenistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Uighurs, in order to repeat what happened to Afrin.

After the occupation of Afrin, the border areas were handed over to the Turkmen groups, and at the same time the security of the border crossings and many important and sensitive institutions in the city center were handed over to the Turkmen mercenary gangs.

Turkmen mercenary gangs have been deployed in Janders, Rajo, Bulbul, Shara, al-Bab al-Salamah, Atarib, and Jarablus, and other areas near the Turkish border are under the control of Turkmen mercenary gangs.

According to statistics of the month of February of this year, 748 families of Turkmen mercenary gangs were settled in Afrin, 300 of which were in the city center of Afrin, and the rest were settled in villages and districts of Afrin.

Also, all the ISIS mercenaries and the Free Army who were brought from Hama, Homs, and Eastern al-Ghouta, as a result of the agreement concluded in these areas under the auspices of Turkey, Russia and the Syrian regime, were fully settled in the Afrin region.

Although these regions have no Turks, the Turkish occupation state has called all these areas Turkish names, which brings back to mind the policy of genocide and national smelting that Turkey has been adopting for centuries against the Kurdish people.

The Turkish state knows very well it will never stay long time in these areas, and therefore it is seeking to implement its project based on the establishment of the so-called "Turkmen belt" at a depth of 5 km in the Syrian lands bordering the Turkish border.

During the occupation attack, the Turkish intelligence services in particular sought to protect and care for Turkmen mercenary gangs, while the groups that included Arab elements were deployed on the front war fronts.

After the Turkish occupation of Afrin, the Turkish state deliberately liquidated all Arab elements it saw as a danger to its projects, and worked to establish and deploy gangs affiliated to it in the place of Arab groups.

In particular, all the mercenary gangs that were competing with Sultan Murad's group were liquidated.

During a hundred years of national smelter policies that the Turkish state pursued against the Kurdish people, it worked to bring families from other countries, in addition to its mercenary gangs and their housing in Kurdish villages.

In 1930, after the Kali Zilan massacre in north Kurdistan, the Turkish state brought thousands of Afghan and Kyrgyz families to the Kali Zilan and Ardish region. All of these families who were brought into the region are still affiliated with the Turkish state and joined the villages protectors' forces.

The efforts and projects of the Turkish state aimed at extending its authority and influence in Syria and Iraq are not new projects and plans. In 2014, when the attacks of ISIS mercenaries intensified in Iraq, Turkish intelligence attempted to arm the "Iraqi Turkmen Front, using them to control Iraq and weaken the authority and control of the Kurds in Kirkuk, and it has always sought to spread tension in the region through ISIS mercenaries.

The Turkish state has always endeavored to raise the issue of the Turkmen population in Iraq, and through the Turkmen Committee it has tried to interfere in internal Iraqi affairs.

Although the Turkish state claims that there are millions of Turkmen living in Iraq, the official statistics of the Iraqi government confirm that the percentage of Turkmen in Iraq is only about 7% of the population, which means that their number is only about 250 thousand people.

The Turkish state deliberately inflates the proportion of the number of Turkmens in Syria as well, and although there are no confirmed figures about the percentage of Turkmens in Syria, the official census conducted in Syria in 2004, as well as statistics of Democratic Autonomous Administration in North and East Syria, indicate the approximate number of Turkmens.

Turkmen live in NE, Syria in Manbaj and GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed. According to the official census of the Syrian government in 2004, the percentage of Turkmen in GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed is between 10 and 15 percent of the total population. According to the statistics of the Democratic Autonomous Administration in North and East of Syria, the majority of the population of GIRÊ SPî/ Tel-Abyed are Arabs and Kurds, followed by Turkmen, who account for between 10 and 15 percent of the total population.
