Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) has released a statement denouncing the Turkish state’s massacre of tens of Kurdish civilians reportedly with chemical weapons.
KNK recalled that the Turkish state has been conducting a systematic massacre in Cizre in front of the world’s eyes for the past two months during which tens of thousands of civilians have been subjected to heavy bombardment and street killings.
The statement pointed out that; “For several days, state forces had been bombing two different buildings that contained wounded civilians; they have now killed almost 60 people using chemical weapons. According to reports from Cizre the people were killed by chemical weapons and the AKP government media (TRT-News) has been announcing this as a victory. In the face of a significant resistance from the Kurdish people the AKP fascist state has committed genocide in Cizre, deploying unethical and illegal methods.”
KNK highlighted the following demands by their side in order for the ending of Turkish state’s massacre and victimization of the Kurdish people:
- We call upon the EU and UN to urgently declare military and economic sanctions against Turkey.
- We demand that Turkey be tried for its crimes against humanity and war crimes.
- We call upon all people to show solidarity with the Kurdish people.
