[size=52]US intelligence officials: Turkey is preparing for a purge against the Kurds[/size]

[size=45]Time magazine revealed that there are US intelligence reports that Turkey has committed war crimes against the Kurds with US weapons.
[size=45]Three weeks after US President Donald Trump ordered US troops to withdraw from northern Syria, US spy agencies point to "disturbing intelligence," with Turkish-backed Syrian factions killing many civilians in areas left by the United States, four military officials said. And American intelligence for Time magazine.[/size]
[size=45]Turkey is rallying more than its declared need
and officials have feared that factions committing possible war crimes in Syria are using weapons sold by the United States to Turkey.[/size]
[size=45]They said the "next could be" worse as Turkey and its allies deploy larger forces and bring in more important weapons to the field to complete their stated goal.[/size]
[size=45]Turkey has announced that it plans to establish a safe area in Syria along the border with a width of 18 miles. But one US security official told Time magazine that "the equipment being prepared is far more important than the need for the Turks" to secure the border area.[/size]
[size=45]Kurdish self-administration in northern and eastern Syria announced Tuesday on Facebook that Turkey is trying to prevent the completion of maintenance work at the station… “Self-management”: Turkey subjected half a million Syrians to thirst Syria and
continued fighting between Turkish forces and Syrian regime forces on Monday, as Kurdish forces have built defensive positions along the border of the safe area inside Syria, a US official said.[/size]
[size=45]Two officials said the trenches and Kurdish observation posts appeared to be preparations for a possible Turkish-led advance into Kurdish-controlled territory after the ceasefire ended.[/size]
[size=45]According to Time, this intelligence led to the conclusion of some American analysts that Turkey and its allies may be preparing for ethnic cleansing against the civilian population in the Kurdish-controlled region.[/size]
[size=45]Fears of ISIS return
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that he intends to establish a safe zone across the border in Syria and resettle part of the 3.6 million Syrian refugees currently in Turkey. On October 26, Erdogan said Turkey intended to "cleanse the terrorists" of the alleged safe area if not all Kurdish forces withdrew.[/size]
[size=45]US officials are concerned that a complete breakdown of the ceasefire, along with preparations for a large-scale Turkish campaign to keep Kurds out of the safe zone, will lead to large-scale war crimes.[/size]
[size=45]Officials are also concerned that the humanitarian crisis, along with renewed fighting, could speed up the resurgence of ISIS, which is thriving in chaos.[/size]
[size=45]US intelligence agencies maintain some resources in Syria, thanks to networks developed during the five-year deployment. The US military also conducts regular reconnaissance missions using drones over the area.[/size]
[size=45]Intelligence about a possible Turkish attack in northern Syria comes from a range of human and technical sources, Time magazine officials said. Intelligence on the use of US weapons in attacks on civilians remains inconclusive.[/size]
[size=45]What they fear most now is that Turkey could use its military incursion into the so-called safe zone as a cover for a larger offensive against the Kurdish population, officials said. "Even if the Kurds continue to withdraw peacefully, that does not mean that the Turks will find no reason to launch the operation," one official said.[/size]
[size=45]Common fears of Turkish war crimes
and US intelligence officials are not the only ones who see evidence of war crimes committed in Syria by forces loyal to Turkey.[/size]
[size=45]Amnesty International reported on Friday that Turkish-backed Syrian factions had committed war crimes, including the execution of Kurdish civilians. Some of these crimes were filmed on mobile phones.[/size]
[size=45]Amnesty International added that it has collected evidence from 17 witnesses about these crimes. It also cited reports from Kurdish-led health authorities in the region that more than 200 civilians were killed by Turkish forces and their allies during the recent fighting, while Turkey claimed that 18 of its civilians were killed in a mortar attack fired from Syrian territory.[/size]
