HPG announces that 4 Turkish soldiers were killed and three camera systems destroyed

The People's Defense Forces (HPG) announced that four soldiers were killed and three camera systems were destroyed in the actions carried out against the Turkish army units in Medya Defense Areas.

The HPG Press Center said in a statement that the guerrillas continue to inflict heavy blows on the units affiliated with the Turkish army. "Equipped with the spirit of victory of our immortal commander Comrade Egîd and using the new era professional guerrilla tactics, our forces continue to inflict heavy blows on the invaders. Our struggle, which started with the 15 August Breakthrough and has become the hope of all oppressed peoples today, emerged as a result of the historical resistance developed by the Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla along the line of sacrifice. Despite all the technology and dirty war methods it uses, the colonial Turkish army, which cannot break the resistance of our guerrillas, wants to get results by bombing the lands of Kurdistan intensively. The invading Turkish state, which writes false victory stories every day and tries to deceive the society through private war media, tries to hide its defeat against the guerrilla will.

The Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla, living and fighting selflessly, will crown its unique resistance with victory to realize our people's dreams of freedom.”
