An armed clash broke out in Silvan (Farqin) district of Amed as soldiers attempted to enter the Tekel neighborhood controlled by units of self-defense protecting the area.
Turkish soldiers have attacked the Tekel neighborhood, one of the four areas where people have started carrying out self-defense after digging trenches to hinder attacks and repression by police.
As youths responded to the attack of soldiers with arms and blast bombs, the people around also protested the attack by security forces.
Slogans "Biji berxwedana Farqinê" [Long Live Farqin Resistance], "PKK is people, and the people are here" resonate in the neighborhood.
Following an armed clash with the units of self-defense, soldiers retreated from where they were deployed at a point close to the neighborhood.
