A girl plays with his Teddy Bear in front of a destroyed wall by bullets in Tel Nasri, few kilometers far away from the frontline against yihadist and Turkish Army. After the withdrawal of US troops from northern Syria in October 2019, Turkey launched an offensive against the predominantly Kurdish areas in the northeast of the country along Islamist forces. Calls for war crimes investigations into the conduct of Ankara-backed militias are mounting ever since.
