Turkey: “We can’t complain” : Turkey’s continuing crackdown on dissent over its military operation “Peace Spring” in Northeast Syria
The extent of the crackdown in the context of the military offensive raises serious concern that the authorities are using military operations in northern Syria as a pretext to further crush dissent and inflict fear.
