This report was originally posted by Internationalist Commune, 1 March, 2018.


The convoy was attacked by the Turkish army and we had to split in different groups looking for shelter. During the night some people was able to reach a car and go to the city of Afrin, especially the groups with injured people. Other groups stayed with families in the villages, waiting for the bombs to stop falling from the sky. In the morning, we met together in the place the people of Afrin prepared for us, and we make together a resistance march in the city. Later we met our friend Xelil, another member of the Internationalist Commune of Rojava who was working with us building the internationalist academy. He tells to us his experiences in Afrin in a long interview that we will try to publish soon. But with so many things happening is really difficult to record, translate, edit and publish the videos we are doing, especially when the Internet connexion in Afrin its almost not existing since the beginning of the war, because it was mostly provided by Turkey.
