HDP MP in Cizre calls on international community to break the silence
HDP Şırnak MP Faysal Sarıyıldız stated that inhabitants of Cizre and Silopi have been deprived of food, drinking water, electricity, medical services, education, communication and all basic necessities
HDP (Peoples' Democratic Party) Şırnak MP Faysal Sarıyıldız has reported on his Twitter account about the latest situation in Cizre and Silopi districts.
Sarıyıldız pointed out that in the past 48 hours attacks of the Turkish state security forces have intensified in both districts where neighborhoods inhabited by thousands of people are under heavy artillery shelling. He stated that announcements are continuously made from armored vehicles, ordering people to leave their homes or die in Cizre and Silopi.
Noting that the most recent curfew declared on December 14 in Silopi is on its 21st day, Sarıyıldız said the death toll is 19 people who all have been killed in the past 3 weeks.
HDP MP continued; “Inhabitants of Cizre and Silopi have been deprived of food, drinking water, electricity, medical services, education, communication and all basic necessities. Under heavy shelling targeting their houses, people are forced to mass displacement in both towns of Şırnak, and those refusing to leave their homes and town are facing a large scale massacre.”
HDP MP for Şırnak appealed to the international community to break the silence and show solidarity with the people of Cizre and Silopi to prevent an imminent massacre.
