Syria: Death of Kurd in protest against Turkish ‘invaders’ is ‘significant moment’ – By Mark Stone (Sky News) / Nov 8 2019
In towns across a predominantly Kurdish part of Syria, the people have fled as the Turkish army has moved in.
Sermisaxa Jor is a tiny, ethnically Kurdish village in the far northeast of Syria.
For the people who live there, today will be remembered as the moment that Syria’s bloody, decade-long and multi-faceted war came to them.
In the context of the war itself, what happened in Sermisaxa Jor is not comparable: one young man died; run over by a Turkish military vehicle.
But in the context of where the war goes next, it’s a significant moment.
