Body of HPG guerrilla given to family after two years

Body of HPG guerrilla Mahsun Pölat, who fell in Mardin countryside in 2017, has been given to his family two years later.

HPG (People’s Defense Forces) guerrilla Mahsun Pölat, aged 26, lost his life in a clash with Turkish troops on 17 July 2017 in the countryside of Akarsu (Sitilîlê) village in Mardin’s Nusaybin district. Pölat was then buried in the Cemetery of the Nameless in the Mardin city.

After a blood sample match, the body of the Kurdish guerrilla has been given to his family after two years. The family, however, was prevented by Turkish officials from burying their son in the Hecheca Cemetery in Mardin city centre.

The Kurdish guerrilla was therewith laid to rest in the Çale neighborhood cemetery in the Ömeryan region in the city countryside.
