The Turkish incursion into northern Syria has sparked further ethnic division and tension

Turkish intervention in 3 major cities in northern Syria has created catastrophic conditions for the entire region, and has exacerbated ethnic tensions significantly in areas that were coexistent, safe and stable, in which the administrative government of the self-administration has succeeded in providing appropriate conditions for establishing development projects and supporting civil society, which has contributed to creating an environment Stable, and pushed the region to become a population and economic center of attraction and provided employment and development opportunities.
Now there is an urgent need for the European Union to do what is necessary to ease ethnic tensions and avoid further escalation, especially since nearly 600,000 residents have been displaced as a result of Turkish military operations while they are still forcibly displaced from their homes and prevented from returning.
We ask the European Union to move and stop following the policy of turning a blind eye, and to pressure Turkey to stop the settlement project that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues to hint at, because of the catastrophic manipulation of social engineering, and what it constitutes a blow to social structure and social stability. This is the summary of a report prepared by the Violations Documentation Center in northern Syria, dealing with the social, economic and political effects of the waves of displacement from the areas of Tal Abyad (Gri Sbei), Ras Al-Ain (Sari Kani) and (Afrin) as a result of the Turkish attack.
