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.

There were no cold barrel behind them, it was not an avalanche that would fall from the mountains. They were running away from the fear of imprisonment, from genderme who has just stopped them, that was not snow that would pour down from the sky, it was bombs of F16s. There were no time to reach a ridge for shelter, F16s were much more faster then them and they sheltered behind the first rocks that they saw…

imageThe Massacre of Kurds in Sirnak: Turkish State Terror in Action Jan 03 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 1 comments

This unjustifiable carnage has again exposed the true face of state terrorism in Turkey. This slaughter exposes the hypocrisy of Erdogan, whose regime has its hands soaked in Kurdish blood while he speaks cynically of human rights in other countries. But it also highlights the hypocrisy of an "international community" that is shocked by the repression in Syria, while it assists the silent slaughter of the Kurdish people. The Kurdish people are now mobilized to define their political project of liberation and to resist the four States which occupy them and oppress them (Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq). The slightest sense of decency and humanity should impel us to show solidarity with them. [Castellano] [Français] [العربية]

The guards have brought your letters when I was in the open-air-area. The guard gave the letters which are full of love and comrades’ salutes. “There are so many letters that our eyes hurt when reading them all.” he said jokingly. I said, “I am a political prisoner, it seems like you will get tired of the letters I receive.”

The attempted invasion of Turkey by the ANZACs and other Alied forces in 1915 was a typical episode in World War 1. "Defending Australia" had nothing to do with it. The war was fought between two rival imperial alliances, each out to gain territory, colonies and markets.
