US Says Has Drone Footage of Its Former Rebels Committing War Crimes vs Civilians

So then decorate Assad for fighting them then, as well as now?

US military officials say that during the Turkish invasion of northeastern Syria, drone feeds showed Turkish-backed rebels attacking civilians in Kurdish territory. The US officials reported it to commanders as possible war crimes.

Officials didn’t say specifically what the four credible cases of war crimes were, but did say that they had been included in an internal report compiled by the State Department.

Turkey’s President Erdogan said war criminals involved in the invasion are no different than ISIS and that Turkey is “going to take care of that.” US officials say they don’t believe Turkey is actually taking the matter seriously.

Whether it even ends up a matter of discussion between Trump and Erdogan during the anticipated meeting this week is anyone’s guess. Trump is believed to not want to anger Erdogan, however, and since he’s already dodging around House votes on sanctions and the Armenian genocide, this is likely just one more thing not to mention.
