An introduction of the Information Center of Afrin Resistance – a contact address for factual information about the current situation in Afrin
Since the beginning of the war in Syria 2011, the region Afrin has been under constant embargo and siege imposed by the Syrian regime, Turkish state and FSA groups related to El Nusra and ISIS. Therefore it has been difficult for journalists and the international media to gain access to this region. This situation has worsen since Turkey waged an open war on the region on 20 January 2018.
Therefore the Information Center of Afrin Resistance (IC Afrin) was founded on the occasion of Turkish army’s invasion attempts and attacks on the region Afrin. With the aim to inform the public and the international media we have been providing first hand current information, footage, documentations and analysis concerning about the developments in and around Afrin.
IC Afrin members were present in Afrin city and other districts until the hold occupation of the canton. With our works on the ground and by being present at the places of occurrences we are aiming to make first-hand information, pictures and footage accessible and to support the media in their efforts to reveal the truth about the developments in Afrin. The focus of our work has been to document human rights abuses, war crimes and the effects of the war on the population of Afrin. At the same time we are reporting about the people’s resistance against occupation and for the defense of their democratic self-administration. Further we are sharing news about international solidarity campaigns with Afrin.
