Commemoration for the Recent Martyrs of the Kurdish People

Firstly, we would like to express our condolences and express that we share the pain of the families and friends of the more than a hundred people who have been killed and dozens injured in a fire in a wedding hall in Mosul. We are deeply saddened by this tragic event. We wish Allah’s mercy to those who lost their lives and send our condolences to their families and relatives and we would like to wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.

The martyrdom of Seyit Evran, one of the pioneers of the democratic and free Press, is commemorated by the Movement of Democratic Free Press, the people of Kurdistan and dozens of democratic organizations. Comrade Seyit was a great revolutionary who demonstrated with his life and stance that understanding the truth means living it and being part of it. We would like to respectfully and with gratitude commemorate all the martyrs of the revolution and democracy in his person, and we reiterate our promise of success to the martyrs.

As a result of the most recent attacks of the genocidal colonialist Turkish state, many people were killed and got injured. Also the mountains of Qendîl [Kandil] were one of the places that has been the aim of recent attacks. The villages of Enzê and Bokriskan were attacked by Turkish bombs. In the attack on Enzê village, a civil villager’s vehicle was targeted and as a result of the attack on Bokriskan village, a villager was martyred and another one got wounded. We would like to express our deep condolences to the relatives of the martyrs and the people of Qendîl and wish a fast recovery to the wounded. This massacre proves once again that the sole aim of the Turkish state is the killing of Kurds. We strongly condemn these attacks and massacres and call on everyone to stand up for the people of Qendil and take a strong stance against the attacks and massacres of the Turkish state. The Turkish state is very uncomfortable with the pressence of the people of Qendîl and therefore targets them specifically. The people of Qendil are wanted to be intimidated with attacks, because they do not give up their patriotic attitude. No matter how much the genocidal colonialist fascist Turkish state attacks, it will not be able to intimidate the valiant people of Qendîl.
