Turkey's Murderous Assault on Kurds

Via comment by Sioux on Iraqi Commander: US Secretly Evacuated ISIS Leader...

  • The curfews are accompanied by military assaults against civilian populations -- their homes, businesses, offices, historical monuments, reservoirs and infrastructure are being bombed and destroyed.
  • "No one can go outside. Our water is running out. The food at homes is running out. The telephone lines have been cut. The situation here is terrible. ... After declaring the curfew, they [the Turks] deploy soldiers, police and snipers in the evacuated schools. They have piled up their ammunition inside the schools." -- Osman Tetik, a representative in Cizre of the Education and Science Workers' Union.
  • "They are shooting bullets at hospitals and ambulances. The Ministry of Health is standing by as hospitals are turned into military quarters and as health institutions and employees become targets." -- Gonul Erden, co-President of the Trade Union of Public Employees in Health and Social Services.
  • "All those towns will be cleansed of terror elements. If necessary, neighborhood by neighborhood, house by house, street by street." -- Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, December 15.
  • The curfews and military assaults against Kurdish civilians have reportedly forced at least 200,000 Kurds to flee.
  • "This reminds me of the Bosnian genocide, the mass graves where I worked, and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. People did not speak up against those mass murders, too. Later, in the face of those massacres, the state authorities were found guilty of staying silent, of looking the other way." -- Prof. Sebnem Korur Fincanci, President of the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey.
The Turks have begun another massacre in Kurdistan, this time bigger than before, and imposing curfews to pin down their victims. It is the latest demonstration of Turkey's 90-year-old extermination campaign against the Kurdish population.


  1. The Syrian and Iraqi Kurds are tied up fighting ISSIS right now, or Turkey would be invaded. They won't forget this.

      I hope they wipe out the leadership.
