Hevrin Khalaf: Death of a peacemaker – BBC News

A BBC Arabic investigation has uncovered compelling evidence suggesting the Syrian-Kurdish political leader, Hevrin Khalaf, was executed by a faction of the Turkish-backed Syrian National Army.

Rebel group Ahrar al-Sharqiya, which fights for the SNA, is accused of her murder, but has told the BBC it is not responsible for the politician’s death.

But by speaking to members of Ahrar al-Sharqiya, as well as Hevrin Khalaf’s family, former colleagues and an eyewitness, plus using open source investigation tools, the BBC has discovered a different story about what happened on 12 October 2019.

The Turkish government, which backs the Syrian National Army, has not responded to BBC requests for comment.

    事实证明,跟着美英打交道的国家和团体,都没有一个好下场!库德族当初是那么的支持美英,为美英而战,简直就是美英“反恐怖”的护卫军和敢死队。结果,如今呢?!说抛弃,就抛弃;说放弃,就放弃;说背叛,就背叛!

    Alot of Crimes like this take place in Middle East, Third country like Vietnam, Malaysia. The corrupt elites who also hold the chief of military even directly kill Innocent people with no hesitation. Trump is the first one who have balls to kill Dictator like Solemanie who had open fire thousands of Iranian protester

    More than 12 men against a female activist and her driver، what a shame.
    هل هذه هي الرجوله 12 مقاتلين ضد ناشطه وسائقها هل بهذه الطريقه انتم فخورين و سوف تاخذون بلد. كان من الاجدر تلبسون عبايات حين وتطلقون الرصاص على امرأة. الشريف بيكم فقط الذي كان يقول لا لا لا في الفيديو. شعب بابا يقدر ان يضرب ماما، هل هذا فخر؟
