Turkey Killing Kurds in Turkish Urban Areas!

Postby GreekIslandGirl » Sat Dec 19, 2015 11:10 am

Turkey is carrying out the sort of atrocities it has been accusing Assad of doing - using the army to kill its own citizens. Time for Putin to move in and protect the Kurds from Turkish terrorists.


The vast operation reportedly involves 10,000 troops led by six generals and is one of the largest launched by Turkey in urban centres inside its territory.

Seven people have been killed in clashes with security forces in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish south-east, officials have said, as authorities declared curfews across the region.
The clashes are the latest in months of violence

Turkey's aggression is leading to its occupation by outside forces. NATO takes over .... :wink:


NATO diplomats and military experts say the alliance's involvement is to minimise the risk of any repeat of Turkey's Nov. 24 shooting down of a Russian warplane that flew into Turkish airspace.

Asked if this was about managing Turkey's airspace with more caution than Ankara has shown in the past, Stoltenberg said: "This will give us a better situational awareness ... more transparency, more predictability and that will contribute to stabilising the situation in the region and also calm tensions," Stoltenberg said.

NATO diplomats worry Ankara is too aggressive and that further incidents could escalate the situation after Russia moved its modern S-400 air defence system into Syria that can hit missiles and aircraft from up to 400 km.

While NATO allies do not dispute Ankara's version of the facts, they also are keen to engage Russia in talks to avoid incidents that could flare from Moscow's aggressive patrolling of alliance air borders around Turkey, the Baltic states and the North Sea.

Diplomats said the United States and European allies are in the awkward position of urging Ankara to do more against Islamic State in Syria - including sealing a section of the border crossed by fighters and oil smugglers - while encouraging it to avoid further incidents with Russia and to keep alive a peace process with the Kurds in southeastern Turkey.

"We are concerned about the military build-up in the region," Stoltenberg said, and said he hoped NATO could repeat the same kind of air policing done in the Baltics, "without incidents and accidents".

It's just NATO Observation and liaison teams. It's nothing dramatically unusual.

But at the end of the day, if Pootin violates Turkish Airspace again, NATO can't stop Turkey from protecting its sovereignty and nor will it stop it from doing so. In fact, Turkey has very clear NATO support to do just that. However, they can't just knock out Russian planes willy nilly nor provoke the Russians when it is not warranted which is what they will be looking at.

As you can see from your article, Russia patrolling NATO borders in close proximity is a major concern to them.

Following on from the Kurdish people in Turkey who are under curfew and starving to death or being killed because of the Turkish troops, a protest against these actions has met with more violence against civilians from Turkish police .....

Turkish police fired teargas and water cannon in Istanbul on Sunday to disperse hundreds of protesters calling for an end to curfews in the south-east, where the military has increased operations against Kurdish militants.

Some protesters threw firebombs at security forces, who responded with teargas. Police responded with water cannon, which raced up and down İstiklal Street, a busy shopping route, firing short bursts at the protesters.

Protesters and tourists used lemons and soft drinks to neutralise the effects of the teargas. Riot police chased protesters down side streets and made arrests as helicopters flew overhead.

Witnesses said stone-throwing teens clashed with police in the adjacent neighbourhood of Tarlabaşı, a hub for Kurds from the south-east.

In Diyarbakır, the symbolic capital of the Kurdish heartland in Turkey, residents reported violent clashes between the youth wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ party, or PKK, and police in the district of Sur.

About 10,000 troops backed by tanks have been deployed to the area, according to local media. The military reported a soldier wounded on Saturday had died, but vowed to continue operations “until public security is established”. The military also reported the death of 11 PKK militants.

The HDP are now calling for autonomy and self rule for Kurdish areas in south eastern Anatolia. Some regions have already declared self governance.

In my opinion, this is a flash point. The beginning of the breakup of Turkey.

How can you deny the Kurds autonomy and Independence in Turkey but demand it for the TC's in Cyprus? Hold your breath. The Kurd's have a right, the TC's don't.

Hang on Kurdish friends! Hang on to Iraqi Kurdistan, that's your best bet and push for autonomy with all that you got.
We got your back! At least I do.
