US organization worries about possible Turkey attack on Syrian Kurds
The US-affiliated International Commission on Religious Freedom has expressed concern about the consequences of a possible Turkish attack on the Kurdish-controlled areas in Syria.

A week ago, Turkey began preparations for a new military operation against the Syrian Kurds. Already Ankara has launched two major military operations against the Syrian Kurds.

In a statement posted on social media, Nadine Maenza, head of the US-based International Commission on Religious Freedom, expressed concern over the launch of another Turkish military operation against the Syrian Kurds.

She stressed that the organization was deeply concerned about reports of a possible new Turkish attack in northeastern Syria.

The head of the US Commission on Freedom of Religion has said that the escalation of military action by Turkey endangers the lives of Christians and other minorities who have already been affected by the actions of Turkey and ISIS.

The official called on the US government to immediately engage with Ankara to stop Turkey's dangerous actions against religious and ethnic minorities in northern and eastern Syria.

Elham Ahmed, a senior Syrian Kurdish official, warned that Turkey wants to occupy the three districts of Tal Rifat, Kobani and Manbij in its new possible operation.
