A mass hunger strike by Kurdish prisoners in Turkey started on Monday, and is set to continue well into 2024 or until demands are met for an immediate resolution to the Kurdish issue and freedom for PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan.
The Turkish government has frozen the assets of certain humanitarian organisations following its devastating military campaign against Kurdish-controlled regions in northern Syria and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
Syrian Democratic Forces or SDF Commander Mazloum Abdi condemned the Hamas attack on Israelis and Israel’s response, while also highlighting the risks of a new cycle of extremist terror in the region.
