Martyr Rizgar Derik's sister, Jiyan Ismail, said that her brother Ismail was affected by the conspiracy against Kurdish People's Leader Abdullah Öcalan, and had decided that the best stance against this conspiracy was to join the struggle for the freedom of Kurdistan.

We are fighting against NATO's vindictive power. Let the enemy know that our martyrs shades light on our way. To be worthy of martyrs is to embrace the struggle with fulll hands."
