PYD condemns KDP’s complicity with Turkey
The PYD called on Kurdish parties to prevent the attacks of the KDP, defining it as a national duty to stand against this conspiracy.
The Democratic Union Party (PYD) condemned the KDP's attacks against guerrilla forces in cooperation with the Turkish army and its attempt to enter the Yazidi settlement Shengal in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq).
In a written statement, the PYD said that the KDP‘s ambush against guerrillas in Xelifan was “a crime and a conspiracy against the Kurdish people”.
The statement stressed that the guerrilla guards the honor of the Kurdish people against the Turkish state and ISIS, while the KDP collaborates with the Turkish state and thus legitimizes their crimes against the existence and identity of the Kurds.
“As the PYD, we will stand against all the conspiracies against our people. We reject the KDP's cooperation with the Turkish state. We are against all approaches that weaken Kurdish unity,” the statement said.
The party called on Kurdish parties to prevent the attacks of the KDP, defining it as a national duty to stand against this conspiracy.
Pointing to the KDP's efforts to enter Shengal since October 2, PYD said, “This attempt is part of the conspiracy against our people. 74 decrees of genocider have been issued against Shengal throughout history. It is the first time in centuries that the people there can govern themselves.”
The PYD emphasized that the attacks on Shengal are an attack on the existence of the Kurds. It also praised the resistance of the Shengal people against these attacks.
The PYD urged the Kurdish people to frustrate the plans of the Turkish state which targets the existence of the Kurdish people in cooperation with the KDP.
