Turkish army attacks against nature

The Turkish army has been attacking the natural environment in the Bradost region.

The lands of Kurdistan are under attack by thousands of tonnes of barrel bombs dropped from US-made F-16 jets as part of the Bradost region in Southern Kurdistan.

Thousands of century-old trees burned down in an attack on June 16 against the Shexzade Valley in the Bradost region with tonnes of bombs. Wild boars, mountain goats, panthers and various other plants and animals endemic to Kurdistan are on the brink of extinction due to the bombings.


Villager Rebaz Mihemed met our reporters in the Shexzade Valley and said their natural environment is under heavy attack by the Turkish armed forces. Mihemed called on the Southern Kurdistan government. Iraqi central government and all defenders of nature to take action.
