Telling Shengal statement from KDP
In his statement, KDP’s peshmerga ministry spokesperson supported the Turkish state’s attack on Shengal and blamed the PKK.
KDP authorities issued telling statements after the Turkish army’s attack on Shengal and by that they effectively announced how the attacks were planned.
Peshmerga Ministry Spokesperson Helgurt Hikmet of the KDP said, “We are calling on the PKK to revise their stance,” while Nineveh Assembly Chair Beshar Kiki said in a disgraceful statement that “the PKK wanted things to come to this. PKK doesn’t want the clashes in the region to end.”
Helgurt Hikmet didn’t condemn the Turkish state’s attacks in his statement and threatened PKK to “leave the Kurdistan region territory”.
