Jaffna, a city so recently free from the struggles of the civil war. As you walk through the streets here you’ll see the remains of many homes that have hundreds of bullet holes shot straight through the walls while other buildings have become reclaimed by the jungle. The northern province is an area that was hit hardest by the 25 year long war, only recently ending in 2009. This beautiful city is famously known for its delicious curries and the extremely friendly locals! ➰
So refreshing being somewhere so far away from the tourism that I’ve been wrapped up in over the last 6 months in the bay! 💯

[3/3] Following the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) pushing the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) out of Hewlêr with Saddam Hussein’s tanks on August 31, 1996 and killing over 80 wounded PKK members in May 1997, the MİT held the First Turkmen Council in Hewlêr in October 1997 and formed the ITF. ITF had been connected to the explosions in Kirkuk after 2003 and the massacres in Shengal in 2007.
-
Reports say the recent alliance between Turkey and Iran on the basis of animosity against Kurds is behind ITF’s submission to Iran-backed groups. As the Mosul operation launched in October 2017, Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan and AKP officials repeatedly called Hashd al-Shaabi terrorists and accused them of “killing Turkmens”. But when Tal Afar was taken by Hashd al-Shaabi, Turkey stayed silent.

[2/3] Rojnews has listed some of the ITF’s crimes:
.

.
- On the day of the referendum, one peshmerga lost his life as a result of the Iraqi Turkmen Front’s fire and one other was wounded in Tuz Khurmatu.
.
- During the October 16 attacks, Kurdish homes marked on the doors beforehand in the Askari and Cumhuri neighborhoods of Tuz Khurmatu were looted.
.
- According to witnesses, the ITF gangs raided a Kurdish family’s home in Tuz Khurmatu and attempted to rape 3 sisters. But other groups in the Hashd al-Shaabi intervened and ITF gangs abandoned the attempted rape.
.
- A PUK building was targeted in Tuz Khurmatu. 15 peshmergas and volunteers were massacred. Many of the dead were reportedly decapitated.
.
- PKK member Hogir Baran who lives in Dakuk was taken to the Ottoman bridge, and executed.

.

[1/3] Iraqi Turkmen Front’s crimes in Southern Kurdistan
-
The Iraqi Turkmen Front that was founded by the MİT is known for their attacks on Kurds in Tuz Khurmatu, Dakuk and Kirkuk.
-
Armed groups under the Iraqi Turkmen Front (ITF) continue to commit crimes against Kurds following the Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaabi’s attacks on Southern Kurdistan territory.
-
The ITF, founded with support from the MİT by some Sunni Turkmen groups in Hewlêr in 1997, had not resisted against the ISIS attacks on Tal Afar and Kirkuk in 2014 and had fled, seeking refuge with the peshmerga. ITF members led by Ershad Salihi had looted Shia Turkmens’ homes in many areas.
-
In the rescue operation for Tal Afar in August 2017 by the Iraqi army and Hashd al-Shaabi, ITF’s armed members had gone under the umbrella of Esayîb Al Haq, known for their ties to Iran, as a result of the relationship between Iran and Turkey. Ershad Salihi and those who accompanied him entered Telafer after it was taken and put up a flag in a children’s park in the city.
-
The ITF’s armed forces, acting under the Esayîb El Hak who leads the Qeys El Xezalî known for their ties with Qasem Soleimani, Commander of the Qods Forces of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), carried out attacks against Kurds in many areas including Tuz Khurmatu, Dakuk and Kirkuk after the attacks on October 16.

From the Congolese side of the River Ubangi, Fabrice Nzongba stares at his village in neighbouring Central African Republic. It’s only a few kilometres away but with rebels and militia in control of the village, for now it is completely out of reach. Tens of thousands of CAR refugees have fled to remote areas of Congo like this over the past five months as conflict intensifies. Many find themselves in areas too remote or too dangerous for aid to reach. "Here we are suffering," one refugee told me. "There are people dying every die"

Sad times with the loss of a good friend. Many a cold night spent in watch together.
You will be missed dear friend! 'Death before decaf'

It it with great sadness i must announce the passing of Cup.
A great asset to the team, Cup could take any shit you put in him, no heat was too much for his strength.
Cup was providing vital hydration support when he took shrapnel to the abdomen. Sadly he was overcome by his injuries and passed away.
A small service will be held later in his honour.
