SIRNAK, -- Turkish warplanes bombed Roboski village of Qilaban district of Sirnak province last night killing at least 36 civilian Kurds.

A group of 50 Kurdish farmers, who were returning home from husbandry works, were targeted by Turkish F16 aircrafts.

Of 50 workers whose ages range from 15 to 30 year old, 36 have been confirmed dead and the death toll is expected to rise. At least 13 are reported missing.

A survivor named as Servet Enco rushed to a village nearby and informed the residents of the fatal bombing.

The bodies of the victims are completely burnt, torn apart and scattered all around. The relatives of victims are trying to find the scattered parts in the area.

According to eye witnesses some sort of chemical weapons might have been used in the assault.

Peace and Democracy Party (BDP), NGOs and many people condemned the massacre and called on authority to find and punish those responsible.

BRUSSELS, Belgium, -- Kurdish National Congress (KNK) strongly condemned the Massacre of Sirnak in which 36 civilian Kurds were killed in Turkish airstrike.

KNK remarked that the air strike was conducted under the supervision and coordination of the Turkish army’s chief-of-staff and hence the massacre was discussed and planned in the meeting of National Security Council.

The KNK remarked that the Massacre of Sirnak accomplished within the current context is a part of Kurdish genocide and no one can regard it as a mistake or an accidental event, owing to the fact that a vehicle of a Kurdish family was also targeted in Defence Regions of Medya leading to death of entire family including two children and the pregnant mother.

KNK underlined that Turkish government and the Gullen’s groups have intentionally been carrying out genocidal policies on the Kurdish people and what they are doing is not hidden from the international powers including the USA, because the head of such groups Fethullah Gulen live in the USA from where he is commanding the massacre of the Kurdish people.

At the end of the statement, KNK send its condolences to the Kurdish people and calls upon the Kurdish political parties not to be silent and show their reaction to such a massacre. The concerned international institutions such as the United Nations, European Union, the European Court of Human Rights – KNK says - should reassess their hypocritical position on this issue and in the face of massacre of the Kurdish people, not to stay silent.
