Under the Nurnberg Tribunal rulings dealing with Nazi war crimes during World War Two, a body of law regarding how military forces were expected to act was created. NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is fully expected to follow those rulings in any member state’s military deployments. Turkey is a member of NATO; therefore, Turkey is expected to behave in full compliance with the Nurnberg laws. The fact that Turkey is now both torturing Kurdish captives itself, and also allowing its proxy forces; namely, the so called Free Syrian Army, the Grey Wolves and others means Turkey is in clear violation of NATO policy. As such, it is a requirement that NATO openly sanction Turkey for engaging in war crimes. Of course, that hasn’t happened, nor do I think it will. Instead, the very foundation of the entire NATO military alliance is now destroyed. Putin has allowed NATO to self destruct over Turkey, just as he has allowed them to crash and burn by supporting the Kiev war criminals.

Syrian rebels captured by YPG confess to torturing Kurdish fighters
By Rudaw 1 hour ago
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region–The Kurdish People’s Defense Units (YPG) counter-terror unit (YAT) captured two members of the Sultan Murad brigade, a force fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The two were captured in a special operation and according to the YPG confessed to have been involved in torturing Kurdish fighters who were taken captive a few days ago near Jarablus.
The YPG released a video of the two Syrian opposition rebels captured by their counter-terror units, according to the Hawar news agency (ANHA).
YPG’s spokesperson, Redur Xelil, on his twitter on Thursday announced “Those who tortured our fighters in Jarablus were captured in a special operation by the counter-terror units YAT.”
The two captives are “Muhamad Ahmad and Ali Muhamad from Hama city, who soon stated that they were deceived by the Turkish state,” according to ANHA.
In the video, the two men confessed that they were part of the group who tortured the four YPG fighters, and they said their brigade receives support from Turkey.
Rebel Muhamad Ahmad said, “The officials told us we will fight ISIS and the Kurds. Kurds are bad, and we are right.”
“But when we entered Jarablus, it was empty and there was not anyone there,” he explained.
The YPG fighters shown in the video being beaten by rebels were handed over to Turks by the Sultan Murad brigade, the two men confirmed.
A video obtained by Rudaw showed soldiers of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) beating and kicking YPG fighters taken captive in fighting, including child soldiers.
Another video shows four YPG fighters who were taken captive on Sunday. In the video, Syrian rebels call the captives “separatists.” They said that, at the “request of the people in the villages south of Jarablus, we came today and liberated the villages from these separatists.”
“Our first and last goal is the unity of Syria, and we want to cleanse Syria from these separatist groups, the Assad regime and ISIS,” the rebels said.
