KCK condemns the suicide attacks in Baghdad
Denouncing Thursday’s deadly attack in Baghdad, KCK said, "It is meaningful in terms of timing that this attack coincided with the Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar's visit to Baghdad together with the Chief of General Staff."
The Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK) Foreign Relations Committee issued a statement condemning Thursday’s attack in Baghdad which killed dozens of people and injured many more.
The KCK Foreign Relations Committee statement said:
“We condemn the brutal attack carried out in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, on January 21, and wish God’s mercy to those who lost their lives in the massacre and a speedy recovery to the wounded. We express our condolences to those who lost their relatives and to the Iraqi people.
It is clear that this brutal attack and massacre carried out by ISIS gangs targeted the Iraqi people who want to live together on a free and democratic basis. ISIS is a major threat not only to the Iraqi people, but also to the democratic unity and freedom of all peoples. ISIS, which was defeated by the common struggle of the peoples of the Middle East, especially the Kurdish and Arab peoples, has been reactivated in the region with the support of the AKP-MHP fascist government and some other forces. It is meaningful in terms of timing that this attack coincided with the Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar's visit to Baghdad together with the Chief of General Staff. This terrible attack in Baghdad cannot be considered independent of the dirty policies of these forces that support ISIS. It is possible to eliminate such attacks aimed at the democratic unity of the peoples only through the common struggle of the peoples.
As the freedom movement and the Kurdish people, we share the pain of the Iraqi people and express our feelings of solidarity. "
