Who is Hasan Kızıler 

Hasan Kızıler (Mazlum), who worked for Roja Ciwan / Stêrka Ciwan and Berxwedan newspapers, joined the ranks of the PKK in 1995. 

He had barely stayed a month in the guerrilla when Turkish military warplanes carried out airstrikes on Xakurkê in the Medya Defense Areas. 

Hasan and seven of his friends fell martyrs.
