Iconic photo by @Delilsouleman . As the last U.S. troops pull out of Syria, an American soldier wears a YPJ emblem on his uniform as a sign of solidarity with the Kurdish ally they are leaving behind. (The YPJ is the women's unit of YPG, they fiercely fought ISIS). @akhbar

I withdraw from participation in the Sociological Meetings in Ankara in protest against the Turkish attack upon the Kurdish population in Syria. This is a crime against humanity that merits universal condemnation.

Americans deserve to know whether Turkey is using American made & sold F-16s or other lethal weapons to slaughter our Kurdish partners. If so, the President’s betrayal is even worse. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I am demanding answers from the Pentagon.

Kurdish fighters in northern Syria partnered with the U.S. to fight the Islamic State. President Trump's decision on Sunday to allow a Turkish military operation in the region has left them feeling betrayed and fighting alone.

A message of fraternity came from Erbil as well, the city in which I was received by the President of the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan, @PMNBarzani , and its Prime Minister, by the Authorities and by the people. I thank the dear Kurdish population for their warm welcome.

Today is Kobani Liberation Day. On January 26, 2015 Kurdish fighters, supported by @CJTFOIR  air strikes, liberated Kobani & showed that Daesh wasn’t invincible & denied them a strategic objective. Congratulations to the Kurds for being an example of a reliable, & capable partner

The Kurdish language may be restricted in several countries, but dedicated volunteers are working in secret to keep the language alive on Wikipedia. Thanks to them, Wîkîpediya Kurdî has more than 30,000 articles! Learn some Kurdish vocab this #IndigenousDay  ?

This prez walked away from the Iran Nuclear Deal for peace, threatened the "end of Iran," killed top Iranian general w/out AUMF from Congress & abandoned our Kurdish allies fighting ISIS. Americans deserve better answers rather than dangerous disruption in the entire Middle East!
