The Turkish occupation state has escalated its aggression against the regions of northeast of Syria since January 20, 2018. Since its occupation of Afrin, it committed a series of killing, displacement, torture, kidnapping and rape against the components of the region. The frequency of crimes has escalated in the northeast Syria in particular, and parts of Kurdistan and the world in general.
The crimes of the Turkish occupation state in the past years are enough to put it on the lists of the largest criminal states against the people. They publicly condemn them before the International Criminal Court.
Human rights jurist Mohamed Amin Al-Nuaimi explains: "All international covenants, charters and norms classify the crimes of the Turkish occupation state as crimes punishable by international law, crimes against humanity, genocide, crimes against cultural items, and destruction of property and historical items that belong to mankind."
There was no crime except that the Turkish occupation state committed in the regions of northeast of Syria from the destruction of private and public property, civil society infrastructure, crops, stones and trees, murders, kidnappings, rape, and theft of human organs. All that is contained in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights Cultural, Economic and Social 1966, Rome Statute or international agreements, including the Convention for the Prevention of the Use of Internationally Banned Weapons.
The latest crimes of the Turkish occupation against northeast of Syria, targeting a house in Helenj village, Kobani on June, killing three civil women; Zahra Barkal and Habun Mulla Khalil, members of Kongra Star Coordination and Amina Muhammad Wessi, and the continuous bombing of the regions of northeast of Syria and the burning The farmers' crops.
The occupation of Afrin is a separate crime in itself
Jurist Al-Nuaimi explained that the Turkish occupation state commits mass crimes against the people of the region, since its aggression on Afrin on January 20, 2018, which later turned into an occupation on March 18, 2018, and said: "Occupation is a separate crime in itself."
He noted that interference in the internal affairs of neighboring countries is a crime punishable by international law, as it is interfering in Syria and Iraq, especially in Başûr of Kurdistan now.
Al-Nuaimi declared that the discrimination separation wall that was set up to separate the occupied areas from the northeast regions of Syria itself is a crime, because it was carried out by a decision of the Turkish state and not based on a charter or an international resolution, and he said: “Turkey is opening the wall whenever it wants to launch its attacks, as if the Syrian territories are a farm for the Turkish state. This thing is rejected under the international laws.
Al-Nuaimi explained that the penalties resulting from the crimes of the Turkish occupation are to refer the Turkish head of state, the intelligence chief, the defense minister, the chief of staff, the minister of foreign and interior, and everyone who has connection with these crimes to the International Criminal Court by moving an international case and a claim by the UN Attorney General is in the Criminal Court. They are sentenced to compensation, imprisonment, and the dismissal of their posts for the benefit of the criminalized, both formally and individually.
Al-Nuimi noted that the failure to move the public case against the Turkish state so far does not mean that the Turkish state is immune from legal prosecution. He said: "The international justice will hold them accountable sooner or later."
He stressed that the international community should take the initiative to move the general international lawsuit against the perpetrators of crimes and present them to the International Criminal Court.
He pointed out that "things are not flawed according to international laws, so that those in the Turkish state are out and about in the regions of northeast Syria, through Libya, Boko Haram, Mali, Nigeria, Yemen, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Pakistan."
Turkey defies the UN Charter and the World Organization for Human Rights
Al-Nuaimi confirmed that the punishment is associated with the crime, and said: “When the offense is a legal description pursuant to Article 9 and in terms of Article 15 of the Rome Law, these crimes are legal classification of international crimes, and they should be prosecuted, because they affect the international community.”
Looking at the crimes of Turkey against the people of northeast of Syria, Kurdistan and the Arab countries are crimes that affect society, Al-Nuaimi asserts: "These international crimes must be pursued, because they affect the international community and are in breach of the United Nations Charter. On the one hand, it exposed the principles of international peace and security, which are the foundation of the United Nations Charter of 1945 is at risk. These two principles makes the United Nations Charter like non-execution, in addition to committing these crimes as a challenge to the Charter of the United Nations, the World Organization for Human Rights and the international community as a whole. "
Al-Nuaimi also explained that there is a significant and unforgivable failure by the international community, which is considered violation of the world order. It is the Charter of the United Nations that was formed on the basis of maintaining international peace and security. "
Muhammed Al-Nuaimi stressed that those affected by the violations of the Turkish occupation can inform the international prosecutor, and in turn, move the case by relying on the investigation and investigation committees and organizations, whether the damage is moral or direct.
