YRK: Turkish attack on Mount Asos was directed against civilians
"Let our people know that the goal of the Turkish state is to annihilate the Kurdish people,” said the YRK, condemning the increasingly ongoing attacks across the Kurdistan territory.
Warplanes belonging to the invading Turkish state bombed a civilian group of people on Friday near Mount Asos in the village of Gelale, near the town of Sarbajêr in Sulaymaniyah. In the attack, Aziz Muhammed Rasul was killed and 5 other people were injured.
The Eastern Kurdistan Units (YRK) released a statement regarding the Turkish attack in the Iraqi-Iranian border area.
The YRK stated that the Turkish attack was directed against civilians, adding, “Our forces suffered no harm as a result of the attack which, however, left one civilian dead and five civilians injured.”
“The Turkish state is escalating its attacks as it suffers defeats. Let our people know that the goal of the Turkish state is to annihilate the Kurdish people,” said the YRK statement.
Offering their condolences to the family of Aziz Muhammed Rasul and wishing a speedy recovery to those injured, YRK added, “We call our people, once again, and all those with conscience to adopt a stand against such attacks.”
