Violations in Afrin tombs | Turkish forces and its proxies trespass and destroy mass graves in Afrin

SOHR activists have reported that Turkey forces and its proxies destroyed mass graves in Afrin town near to the local municipal council building, where the military forces used bulldozers and heavy machinery to destroy the graves which contain the remains of over 40 military and civilian corpses who were killed during Afrin’s siege at the beginning of 2018.

According to SOHR reliable sources, the population of Afrin buried the corpse of al-Mahmudiyah victims who were killed in Turkish air attacks in March 2018.

On the other hand, today, the Turkish-backed factions blocked the roads leading to the graves. According to local sources, the Turkish forces have violated the sanctities of the dead, where they pulled out bones and coffins of the dead during the digging operations.

It is worth noting that the Turkish forces have destroyed graves in Matina, Qazikli and Avesta along Kafr Shel road and turned them beside archeological Senara tomb into sheep selling market.
