NEWS CENTER - The UN Human Rights Office, has warned Turkey about the operation that continued in North and East Syria.

The United Nations (UN) Human Rights Office warned Turkey about international law regarding the ongoing operation in North and East Syria. The statement said that Turkey could be held responsible for the executions done by groups linked to Turkey. 
The UN Office examplifying the execution of Kurdish female politician Hewrîn Xelef and the members of Syrian Democratic Forces (QSD), said they are collecting intelligence on mass executions.
BM statement was as follows: 
The security situation in north-eastern Syria remains highly volatile with continued reports of airstrikes and ground attacks as the military operation continues. On both sides of the border, civilian injuries and deaths are being reported.
At least 160,000 people have been displaced since the start of military operations. Most displacements have taken place from Ras al-Ain and Tell Abiad. Most of the displaced, fleeing south form the border area, are staying with relatives or host communities, but increasing numbers are arriving at collective shelters.
We are particularly concerned for the civilians at Ein Issa camp, hosting approximately 13,000 people, and where services, including provision of water and bread, have been suspended since 13 October. Hostilities and shelling continued yesterday close to the camp. The situation is highly fluid and latest reports indicate population movements both in to and out of the camp between 13 and 14 October. This could indicate that some people who left have returned to the camp.
The Mabruka IDP camp, which is close to Ras al-Ain – a major flashpoint in the military operation - was largely evacuated earlier due to insecurity, but about 15 families remain there. We continue to advocate for protection of all IDP camps and guarantees of safe and unhindered passage for those staying behind, and for humanitarian actors to reach them with assistance.
Humanitarian partners continue to provide life-saving assistance in the existing displacement camps - except Mabruka, due to insecurity - including the most populated camps such as Areesheh and Al Hol. Efforts are also underway to assist displaced people in the new collective shelters established in Al-Hasakeh, Tal Tamer and Ar-Raqqa further to the south.
