KCK members murdered in Sulaymaniyah laid to rest in Qandil
“Long Live the Rojava Resistance” and “Fascist Erdoğan” chanted the people attending the funeral.
KCK Foreign Affairs Committee Member Demhat Agit (Seyitxan Ayaz) and Health Committee Member Cemil Amed (Eser Irmak) were martyred as a result of a Turkish attack in Sulaymaniyah city of southern Kurdistan, northern Iraq on October 15.
According to the KCK (Kurdistan Communities Union) statement on the martyrdom of two senior members, Demhat Agit (Seyitxan Ayaz) was in Sulaymaniyah as part of efforts for national unity and creating a public opinion against
Turkish invasion of Rojava, while Cemil Amed (Eser Irmak) was in the city due to health reasons. Agit and Amed were murdered in a targeted aerial attack of the Turkish army.
Masses bid farewell to the two Kurdish revolutionaries at the Mehmet Karasungur Cemetery of Martyrs in Qandil on Wednesday. “Long Live the Rojava Resistance” and “Fascist Erdoğan” chanted the people attending the funeral.
The farewell speech was made by KCK Foreign Affairs Committee Spokesperson Zagros Hiva who stressed that the attack against Agit and Amed aimed for the Kurdish unity. Recalling that the two martyrs fought for the unity of the Kurdish people in four parts of Kurdistan, and were martyred for this cause, Hiva said; “We will follow in the footsteps of our martyrs to the end.”
Hiva criticized the government of South Kurdistan as the bodies of the two revolutionaries were taken out of Sulaymaniyah secretly last night. He remarked that the South Kurdistan government’s treatment toward bodies was the same with that of Turkey’s AKP and called for this manner to be reviewed.
The two Kurdish revolutionaries were then laid to rest with slogans.
