Turkish use of chemical weapons in South Kurdistan protested in Paris

The Turkish state committed chemical warfare crimes in South Kurdistan in front of the eyes of the world, said activists in an action held in Paris.

The Turkish state's chemical weapons attack on South Kurdistan was protested with a march and rally held in the Villiers-le-Bel suburb of Paris.

Hundreds of Kurds participated in the march organized by the Villiers-le-Bel Democratic Kurdish Community Center (DKTM). Before the action held in front of the train station, a minute of silence was observed in memory of the Kurdistan Freedom Martyrs.

The statement made on behalf of the Kurdish People's Assembly, pointed out that the AKP-MHP coalition, who suffered great defeat against the guerrillas, wanted to get results by resorting to chemical weapons. "The Turkish state disregards all international law rules and commits war crimes by carrying out a genocidal attack against the Kurdish people and the Freedom Guerrillas in front of the eyes of the world. Although there is concrete evidence regarding repeated attacks, the OPCW is turning a blind eye and participating in the Kurdish genocide."

The statement underlined that the Kurdish people will join the resistance of the Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla against the attacks by the invading Turkish state, no matter the cost, and added: "The resistance of the Kurdish people will win."

The march ended in front of Villiers-le-Bel DKTM, with statements and solidarity messages from different institutions.
