"I dislike death, however, there are some things I dislike more than death. Therefore, there are times when I will not avoid danger."
~ Mencius.

Here are photos carried on Yeni Özgür Politika from the video HPG guerrillas took of their operation against the Bezele military station near Semdinli. The video these photos were taken from was aired on Roj TV and the operation is considered by HPG to be one of their biggest in recent years. 150 guerrillas of the HPG and YJA-STAR took part in the operation:

Two HPG guerrillas were martyred during the Bezele operation:

Name: Mecit Timur
Code name: Masiro Faraşin
Birth year and place: 1990/Hakkari

Name: Deniz Çeker
Code name: Zagros Çavreş
Birth year and place: 1981/Palu

And here's the video itself from Roj TV. You will see the attack on the Bezele station and notice that to the right of the post is a smaller military post on a higher mountain which has the purpose of covering fields of fire for the main Bezele station. You will also see footage of the guerrillas moving into position on the day before the operation. During the fire fight, you will see that the arsenal is hit and burns rapidly.

Bear in mind as you watch that it was during this operation that the Turkish general staff pulled their casualty numbers out of their asses. Unfortunately, their number fell far short of the number of TSK casualties that HPG counted as the attack was ongoing. HPG witnessed 29 kills and 11 wounded.

The surprise is on you, Büyükanıt.
