"Security forces will intervene with every possible means indiscriminately, including against women and children."
~ R. Tayyip Erdoğan.

Back in June, Şirnex, Culemêrg, and Sêrt were declared "security zones" (OHAL) by the Turkish general staff, in an agreement with the centralized Ankara regime. Now, the rising pressure in these areas by the Turkish military has resulted in a baby's murder.

Özgür Gündem reports that a six-month old baby in Çemê Karê, a zozan of Pervari in Sêrt, became ill and the parents decided to take him to the hospital. However, the Turkish military did not let the parents take the baby because it had closed the roads into and out of the town two weeks before. According to the Turkish military, the people of the town were supporting PKK by giving supplies to the gerîlas. The father had asked for permission from the jandarma to take a vehicle to transport the ill baby, but permission was refused.

The father and sixteen other villagers then decided to saddle up, even putting the baby on the back of a horse to travel the 90 kilometer distance to the hospital in an attempt to save the infant's life. En route, the baby died.

Thus we can say that the Turkish military murdered a Kurdish baby because it was a supporter of the PKK. This is another example of who the real baby-killers and terrorists are.

After the death of the infant, the villagers and the father of the baby went to court to press charges against the jandarma commander who had refused permission of the use of a car to transport the baby to the hospital. On their way to the court, the group was arrested and detained by Turkish soldiers. After their statements were taken, they were released.

IHD is expected to investigate the murder of the baby by the Turkish military.

There is a pregnant woman in the same village who needs to go to the hospital because she's in a critical medical situation. She may be the next one to die, since permission to take her to the hospital has been denied, just as it was for the baby.

The irony of this report is that while the villagers are accused of providing supplies to HPG gerîlas, they are suffering a critical food shortage themselves due to the severe restriction of travel. Villagers are permitted one kilo of flour per person every three days, which makes it virtually impossible to provide any extra provisions to anyone at all.

This is another example of the continuing genocide against the Kurdish people. There's no other possible explanation for the murder of a Kurdish baby, the threat of death hanging over a pregnant Kurdish woman, and the slow starvation of an entire Kurdish village.

Yesterday, Köksal Toptan became the head of the TBMM and also became a grandfather on the same day. What would Toptan do if his grandbaby were refused hospital care by the Turkish military and died as a result? Or what would Grandfather Erdoğan, the great lover of Kurdish-Turkish Islamic brotherhood, if it were his grandchild who had been murdered by Turkish military baby-killers?

After all, "bir Türk dünyaya bedel" (One Turk is worth all the world). Right?

My ass.

what kind of a hollywood world are you living in?

Apparently you have never been in the Turkish military. I have. I have served in the Turkish military with fellow Kurds. I'll repeat it incase you didn't understand: There are also kurds in the Turkish military.

and though it seems so, the military isn't some brainless killing machine. Very flexible decisions are always taken right on the spot independent of set concrete rules.

And you have to stop believing in news from weak sources. and stop giving some evil image to entire Turkish military, as if the rebel -army- is better. Your corporate marketing techniques are awful.

No kidding, Turkish ET?

Did you murder any Kurdish babies while you were in?

Turkish E.T. said...

No. I didn't even shoot a bullet if you can believe. Unlike those people you proudly display on your website carrying Kalashnikov's as if they are the craft tools to building a nation.

tell them they need hammers and nails and wood blocks instead.

did you murder anyone?

Mizgîn said...

Construction materials come after the occupying terrorist army called "TSK" is cleansed from the land.

Murder does not apply to HPG operations since it is engaged in a legitimate armed struggle.

Check UN Resolution 3103 for more on legitimate armed resistance to racist and/or colonialist regimes since it is the resolution which applies in the case of the racist and colonialist Turkish regime.

UN-Resolution 3103
Basic principles of the legal status of the combatants struggling against colonial and alien domination and racist régimes

Colonial? Alien domination? Racist regimes?
Turkey is not a racist regime. Not today and you guys should get over it. There has been terrible "racist regimes" in the past, such as USA, so when you say "racist regime" it usualy resonates something similar to USA in the 50's. Where people were not allowed to sit in the same room. But no, it has never been like that. Kurds were treated *equal* at every instance in Turkey in social life. It is true that their language was undermined, and ignored but that is not racism. It has nothing to do with the Kurds and it was a general policy towards other minorities as well. You are using that to cry out your own racist views and to form a country that will be as corrupt as Turkey of the past.

The lands that Turkish military is in are Turkey, or are they not according to UN? By the way since when do we (Kurds, Turks) view UN as the basis of our actions when even the UN doesn't see itself as an authority ( so does not usa for that matter)

HPG does not target civilians but surely the time for -armed resistance- is over. That particular intellectual theory of counter war, was developed in response to the incurable ignorance of western nations, it is not right for the culturally connected eastern folks, like Turks and Kurds.

Mizgîn said...

Turkey is a racist regime and your comments about Kurds only apply to those who deny their Kurdishness and assimilate totally into an alien culture.

That, plus the many slaughters that the regime has inflicted on Kurds, is racism.

As long as the genocide of Kurds by the Turkish regime persists--such as the starvation of Kurdish villages and the willful murder of Kurdish infants by the regime--then the time for armed resistance continues.

Mizgins guide to building sentences:

throw any of the words "racist , racism, slaughters , murder, genocide , infants, opression."

build a sentence around them.
the result doesn't have to make sense.
