Guerrillas: Turkish state will be defeated again

Guerrillas from YJA Star and HPG stated that the Turkish state's invasion attacks would fail, saying, "We will resist to the end and the Turkish army will regret it." The guerrillas called on the Kurdish people to embrace the resistance.

YJA Star (Free Women’s Troops) guerrilla Hebun Hevi and HPG (People’s Defense Forces) guerrilla Herekol Botan evaluated the recent invasion operations of the Turkish army in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq) and the guerrilla resistance for the ANF.

Hebun Hevi, who takes part in the “Bazên Zagrosê” (Hawks of Zagros) offensive in Avashin region, said; "We as guerrillas are all in our positions against the invasion operations initiated by the enemy. We are familiar to the invasion operations that the enemy has repeatedly carried out against the guerrilla areas. This recent invasion operation is a part of the AKP-MHP government's plan to subjugate the Kurdish people. These military operations are not only against the guerrilla and the Kurdish people, but also against all wronged peoples who seek their rights."

Hevi stressed that: "We, as the HPG and YJA Star guerrillas, will resist to the end and foil the enemy's military operations."

"We will for the freedom of our people to the end and never leave our positions. The enemy has carried out invasion operations against Avashin since 2017. They have launched an invasion operation under the name of Claw-Lightning. They will also be defeated in the Avashin, Metina and Zap regions as they were defeated in the Garê,” she underlined.

The YJA Star guerrilla added, "We will participate in the Bazên Zagrosê and Cenga Xaburê offensives initiated by our organization in the regions of Avashin, Zap and Metina. We will continue to join the offensives in the spirit of the guerrilla of the new era.”


Evaluating the occupation operation from his war position, HPG guerrilla Herekol Botan urged the people of South Kurdistan (Bashur) to claim their land.

"Since April 23, we have been resisting Turkey's invasion operations as part of the Bazên Zagrosê revolutionary campaign. This attack not only targets the guerrilla, but also the people of Bashur and all the people of Kurdistan. Our people in Bashur should take to the streets and condemn these attacks. The recent attacks are not ordinary military assaults. Our people in Bashur should definitely raise their voice. We defend the areas against all possible attacks. There has been a great resistance against all kinds of attacks. We will defend our lands to the end," Botan said.
