While the Governor of Diyarbakır has banned entry and exit in six neighborhoods of Amed's Lice district as of 05:00 this morning, state forces are getting prepared to launch fresh operations in some neighbourhoods.
A written statement issued by the governor's office said operations would be carried out in the neighbourhoods of Konuklu, Yaprakköy, Ahmetbey, Yünlüce, Gürbeyli and Hamzabey as well as the areas of Türbe Komları, Recep Komu and Namber. According to the statement, entry and exit in the mentioned areas has therefore been banned until a further notice.
In the meantime, Turkish state forces continue their attacks in Silvan (Farqin) district of Amed as well. While the resistance of the people led by the youth also continues, helicopters are often carrying out flight at low level over the district. Additionally, sounds of guns are frequently heard from the neighbourhoods.
The journalists covering the attacks of state forces in the district have also been targeted by police forces. Following the detention of reporters for Özgür Tv and DIHA this morning, it has emerged that a detention warrant has been issued for the journalists based in the district on grounds of violating the curfew.
