The self-declared republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, known as Artsakh to Armenians, will cease to exist by January 2024, following its defeat by Azerbaijan.
Turkey’s Court of Cassation has upheld life sentences for Osman Kavala, a prominent civil rights activist, Can Atalay, a member of the Workers’ Party of Turkey, and three other activists involved in the 2013 Gezi Park protests.
Representatives from various Kurdish NGOs and the pro-Kurdish Green Left Party have called for unity among Kurds in an Istanbul meeting focusing on the isolation of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan.
And the all-female Syrian Kurdish Women’s Protection Units has freed Faryal Khader, a 21-year-old Yazidi woman held captive by ISIS for nine years.
