KJK vows to remove the Turkish army from occupied lands
"Our movement draws its strength from the fact that it is in the right. The greatest wealth of the guerrillas is their conviction and willpower. Nobody will be able to occupy this wealth so easily", said the KJK about Turkish invasion in South Kurdistan.
The Community of Women from Kurdistan (KJK) said that the Turkish army’s recent military operations are a part of the "Collapse Plan" launched in 2014 and added, "Our guerrilla will defend our country with a sense of historical responsibility and remove the enemy from the occupied lands.
In a written statement published on Wednesday, the KJK stated that the guerrillas responded with a sacrificial spirit to the attacks in Avashin, Metina and Zap regions of the Medya Defense Zones in southern Kurdistan, northern Iraq.
The statement of the KJK is as follows:
"The recent military attacks launched by the fascist Turkish state against Metina, Avashin and Zap have been practiced as a continuation of a concept. The invasion attack, which coincided with the anniversary of the Armenian genocide, hinted at a genocide that targets all Kurds, our freedom movement and the resisting peoples. The recent military attacks are a part of the Collapse Plan launched in 2014.
First of all, we greet the HPG-YJA STAR guerrillas who resist the fascist Turkish army. The Kurdistan guerrillas are resisting in Avashin, Metina and Zap.
It is obvious that these invasion attacks could not come into force without the support of the US and some regional powers.
While the US recognized the genocide committed against the Armenian people, it did not hesitate to expose the Kurdish people to a new genocide.
This decision should not be accepted by the US public or the international community. The Kurdish freedom movement has protected all the peoples of the Middle East and Europe against ISIS. Putting the PKK on a terror list is a stigmatization of a people with terrorism. All these forces know very well that the PKK, which has been waging a struggle for a democratic nation and a free people, has nothing to with terrorism.
The Turkish state is going through the most difficult period in its history. Its fascist mentality and practices have actually caused a huge trouble for the whole world. The Kurdish freedom forces and guerrillas are resisting with great honor, morale and will. Our guerrilla movement will continue defending our country with a sense of historical responsibility and they will remove the enemy from the occupied lands. Our movement draws its strength from the fact that it is in the right. The greatest wealth of the guerrillas is their conviction and willpower. Nobody will be able to occupy this wealth so easily.
Therefore, the recent military attacks launched by the Turkish army against the Medya Defense Zones should be seen as a red line by all Kurds because the guerrilla is the freedom guarantee of the Kurdish people and the peoples of the region. With this belief and determination, victory will be achieved by the guerrillas who resist and by the women who lead the struggle.
Kurdish women should act with the spirit of awareness, courage and determination to defend free Kurdistan, free leader and free women against the occupation."
