YJA Star guerrilas: Turkey attacks so heavily because it knows it has reached the end

YJA Star guerrillas in the southern Kurdish resistance region of Biradost see the current invasion as a decisive battle with the AKP/MHP regime. The regime attacked so heavily because it knows it has reached the end.

Since mid-April, the Turkish army has been trying with all its might to conquer the Medya Defense Areas of Zap, Avaşîn and Metîna. YJA star fighters Ararat Nûda and Dilzar Rêber fight in the strategically important Biradost region. Ararat Nûda told ANF: “These are the days of victory. The enemy knows this and attacks us with this awareness.”

"The guerrillas fight with one heart"

Guerrilla Nûda continued: "This war is not only limited to Zap, Metîna and Avaşîn. We carry this spirit within us. We are with our friends. The people are also on the side of the guerrillas. Perhaps only a limited number of friends are fighting directly in this war, but the guerrillas share a common spirit and heart. The guerrillas resist with their whole body. The basis of this spirit is the resistance of the martyrs and that of Rêber Apo [Abdullah Öcalan]."

Guerrilla Nûda said: "This form of resistance assures us of victory. Our actions against the enemy are aimed at guaranteeing Rêber Apo's physical freedom. Military actions take place here, but on the other hand, it is also a historical resistance of humanity, of women who do not bow their heads. Just as Babak said when he was brought to execution: 'You don't know what freedom means, but when it's in your heart nothing can stop you.' So, through Rêber Apo, we got to know the taste of freedom. Nothing can stand in our way. Our fight, our war will go on until victory. I wish all friends success."

"Towards victory"

Guerrilla Dilzar Rêber emphasized that the tunnel war carried out by the guerrilla fighters in Avaşîn and Zap in particular gives the fighters strength and morale. She added: “The attacks on the Medya Defense Areas show what the enemy's goal is, what the enemy is up to. The war in Avaşîn and Zap shows that we are heading towards victory. We get that will, that awareness, that passion from Rêber Apo and the martyrs.”

Guerrilla Rêber recalled the guerrilla actions of the past few days in Xakurke where 28 Turkish soldiers were killed. Four guerrilla fighters also fell during the clashes.  “With this action, the spirit of Martyr Berivan was revived. The Turkish fascists, who are waging their war here without any morals, put their killed soldiers in sacks and throw them into the ravines. Our people must protest against the Turkish state's attacks on the guerrillas with chemical weapons. We call on young people to come to our free territories.”
