Nicht nur Kinder bombardiert die #Türkei, sondern auch wichtige Kulturgüter, um den Menschen ihre Geschichte zu rauben. #Afrin #Efrîn

The ancient temple of Ain Dara had survived 3000 years, but then #Turkey's F-16 fighter jets came and dropped modern bombs on it, bombing it to rubble.

This is what #barbarians do.

So I just checked:

Not ONE SINGLE English- or German-speaking newspaper or -agency reported about this unspeakable crime so far.

Turkey has much in common with ISIS. Destroys the archaeological history of the Hittites, the ancient people who occupied the region long before the ancestors of modern Turks appeared in the region.

¿Os acordáis de ISIS destruyendo sitios de gran valor arqueológico como Palmira o Nimrud? Lo mismo está haciendo Turquía con sus bombardeos sobre determinados vestigios de Afrin donde ni siquiera hay efectivos militares.

@TurkeyUntold I would expect that at least @UNESCO will issue a statement condemning the destruction of the Aim Faraday Hittite temple complex by Turkey!

I've been reading some archeology/anthropology books about ancient Mesopotamia from just before/after the Iraq war began. It's overwhelming to think about what we've lost.

IŞID da ilk iş olarak tarihi eserleri bombalardı. TC sadece ideolojik olarak değil kullandıkları yol ve yöntemler olarak da IŞIDla aynı.

@TurkeyUntold @UNESCO @UNESCOUK @haaretzcom @hittites @EAMENA123 @EIB @Heritage_Action @StockholmCF The Ain Dara temple is an Iron Age Syro-Hittite temple, also known as the First Temple, as described in the Hebrew Bible. According to Ali Abu Assaf, in existence from 1300 BC until 740 BC..

Seeing this before-after pictures, there is only one logical conclusion:

The destruction happened on purpose.

@TurkeyUntold You'd almost think they were trying to systematically destroy Kurdish cultural heritage... Many historical precedents for this type of attack, i.e: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baedeker_…. "Targets were chosen for their cultural and historical significance, rather than for any military value".

Uncivilized barbarians. The only thing Turkish ultra-nationalists are good at is killing people and destroying cultures and societies.
