AFRIN, Syria – The Syrian War has waged since 2011 when western-backed militants began an armed uprising against the Syrian government.
Anti-government protests occurred all across the country, including in the Afrin canton in northwest Syria that Turkish-led forces, including the Free Syrian Army, are currently invading to not only control, but also defeat the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
With this invasion, the YPG has officially called for the Syrian government to intervene and help the YPG drive the Turkish-led forces, including the Free Syrian Army, back into Turkey.
However, twitter user @WithinSyriaBlog has reminded the world that the Kurds of Afrin in 2011 conducted protests that called for NATO to intervene in Syria and create a no-fly-zone against the Syrian Air Force.
The twitter user highlighted the irony that the Kurds of Afrin called for a no-fly-zone to be enforced by NATO but are now themselves being bombed by warplanes on a daily basis by NATO-member Turkey.
The videos of the Kurds calling for a NATO intervention against the Syrian Army, who they are now calling to help them fight against Turkey, can be seen below.
