‘Betrayal of the KDP is like a spreading cancer’

Girke Lege residents stated that the Kurdish people will never accept the betrayal of the KDP, the policies of which -they said- obstruct Kurdish unity.

The Turkish state continues its attacks with chemical weapons against Medya Defense Zones in South Kurdistan (North Iraq) since April 23 with the support of the armed forces of the ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).

The KDP maintains the betrayal, supporting the Turkish state in every aspect for attacks against the guerrilla forces. An ambush by the KDP forces resulted in the death of 5 guerrillas in Xelifan on August 28 and the KDP has yet to hand over the bodies of fallen guerrillas to their families.

The Council of Martyrs’ Families in Jazira Region have been holding a vigil at Semalka Border Gate since October 5 demanding to get the bodies of Tolhildan Raman and Serdem Cûdî who were among the five guerrillas killed by the KDP. The families receive solidarity visits from hundreds of people every day.

‘KDP paves the way for Turkey’s plans’

Speaking to ANHA, Girke Lege resident Yûsif Yehiye, who is among the visitors, stated that the policies of the KDP obstruct the unity of Kurdish people, and blamed the KDP for paving the way for the Turkish state’s plans against Kurdistan.

Betrayal of the KDP is like a spreading cancer seeking to destroy the Kurdish people’s achievements, said Yûsif Yehiye, and pointed out the importance of opposition and protest against the KDP’s actions.

Another resident named Ebdulkerîm Ehmed expressed that the KDP works as an agent for the Turkish state, and this betrayal endangers the Kurdish cause.
