The Turkish occupation state and its mercenaries are seeking through these crimes to displace the remaining Kurds and settle the families of its mercenaries in the occupied canton of Afrin. Before the occupation of Afrin on March 18, 2018, the proportion of Kurds was close to 95 percent of the total population of the canton, but it shrank to about 23 percent.  As a result of the crimes of the occupation and the systematic practices it uses to displace them.
