Turkey launched “Operation Peace Spring” on Wednesday October 9, claiming to end the presence of terrorists near its borders in northern Syria. Some countries condemned this illegal action of violation of the Syrian sovereignty.

Before Turkish incursion into northern Syria, there were many warnings that the incursion would prepare the ground for ISIS to be released by the US-coalition forces.


Currently, about 11,000 ISIS prisoners are hiding in Syria. ISIS has reemerged and claimed the responsibility for two attacks on Qamishli and Hasakah since the beginning of Turkish attacks.

Turkish troops has approached an important city in the northeast and clashed with US-backed Syrian mercenaries. These events provided the chance for hundreds of ISIS members to escape from a camp in Ayn Issa near a U.S.-led coalition base.

The camp is located 35 km on the south of Syria-Turkey border, and about 12,000 ISIS members, including children and women, are settled there. The Kurdish forces are said to be in charge of controlling these prisoners.


European officials fear that ISIS prisoners with European nationality, who have fled camps, will come back to their countries. In response to Turkey’s invasion of Syria, the US coalition has released ISIS mercenaries in the region.

Media reports about the ISIS resurgence in Raqqa, the former ISIS stronghold, cannot be ignored, as dozens of terrorists have shot Kurdish police forces in this city.

The head chopping terrorists aimed to occupy the headquarters of the Kurdish security forces in the enter of Raqqa.

Families affiliated with ISIS are held in Al-Hol camp, under the control of Kurdish forces. At the current situation, the camp has turned into a time bomb that could explode at any moment.

Under normal circumstances, there have been several conflicts between ISIS families in the camp, but the current situation is far worse than before, now that the US protection has left.

Kurds speak a language different from Arabic but akin to Persian.

After the First World War, when the Anglo-Saxons parceled up the Arab areas of the Ottoman Empire, Syria came to be controlled by the French, Iraq by the British, and the Kurdish area was divided into parts in Turkey, Syria and Iraq.

Not forgetting the borderlands in Iran — a brutal division by a colonial scalpel severed communities, friends and families of the divided Kurdish population.

After. the US military failed in its efforts to bend countries to its will, one has to wonder if Erdogan has thought this one through.
