Jonas Sjöstedt, head of Sweden's Left Party and Member of Parliament, said that the Turkish military offensive in Afrin was “a massive killing of civilians, it’s an ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of people.”

He expressed worry that war will continue and Erdogan “will attack other parts of Rojava [Syrian Kurdistan] and maybe also northern Iraq and Kurdistan” and said the only thing that can stop this “is the outside world. There has to be stronger condemnations, there has to be economic sanctions, there has to be an immediate stop of the export of arms to Turkey.”

Sjöstedt concluded by saying that “Turkey is becoming a dictatorship that is not only harmful to the Turks and Kurds

living in Turkey but the whole region.”
