Anyone find it odd that the UNHCR hasn’t yet condemned the Kurdish genocide in NE Syria? Is it possible that it isn’t happening?

Sarcasm? Venezuela just got appointed to the UNHCR...it's not something I would take as a serious body politic.
No, just find it strange the international community would sit idly by when an ethnic group is being decimated by a nation state beyond the eyes of journalists, social media, etc.

In absence of any substantiated claims, I’m suspicious.

Interesting....

Turkey, Russia Reach Deal To Control Syrian Areas Once Patrolled By The U.S.

Under the deal, Russian military police and Syrian border guards will first facilitate the withdrawal of Syrian Kurdish forces from the Turkish border. Russians and Turks will then jointly patrol the area now occupied by the Turkish military. Russian military police and border guards from Syria will cross the over the Syrian side of the border with Turkey. At that point, the two forces will "facilitate the removal of YPG elements and their weapons," according to the memorandum.

Yes, they would get rid of two birds with one stone.

But I think this will be a greater political victory for Putin than anyone else.
