Talk:2019 Turkish offensive into north-eastern Syria

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Rojava[edit]

Amr, what's wrong with using Rojava? It's more specific than 'northern Syria'. Konli17 (talk) 17:55, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

All sources point to the area as northern or northeastern Syria, so we have to stick with that. On top of that, this is a conflict involving SAA and happening on the internationally-recognized territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. Using any other name would be OR, and is not accepted. I hope this is clear. Amr ibn Kulthoumعمرو بن كلثوم (talk) 18:52, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

The area "Rojava" means "West" in Kurdish specifically "Western Kurdistan". The official name for Rojava is the "Autonomous Administration of North East Syria", much of the fighting is also taking places like Al-Haskah which is not the region of Western Kurdistan instead being majority Arab. Calling it Rojava would not take into account the Arab areas fighting along side the SDF and much of the areas of fighting are non-Kurdish areas, the term is sectarian in its very nature. The AANES (Really bad name) has made it clear they are fighting for Syria, not a Kurdistan nation, but with Kurdish autonomy. Using the term "Rojava" would be acceptable in two scenarios, 1: The official name of AANES being Rojava (Its not), 2: The areas of Invasion only being Kurdish Areas, (The majority of the current fighting is based around Ayn Issa, an non-kurdish area).

Very well said Vallee01. Amr ibn Kulthoumعمرو بن كلثوم (talk) 23:09, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

2019 Turkish offensive into north-eastern SyriaOperation Peace SpringWP:COMMONNAME, shorter and simpler, and matches with other Turkish Operation names in Syria (e.g Olive Branch, Spring Shield, Euphrates Shield) Thepharoah17 (talk) 01:40, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

  • Oppose, WP:POVTITLE. It would be like moving Iraq War to Operation Iraqi Freedom, ignoring the perspective of everyone but the propagandists. Ribbet32 (talk) 04:15, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Strongly Oppose, this has already called, for starters it would be written from a Turkish Perspective also does not explain the entirety of the fighting. Vallee01 (talk) 21:28, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
