An overview of 2021 from the guerrilla front -II

The guerrillas proved the way to victory and the success of their tactics through practice and resistance.

When the Turkish army was beaten and retreated from Garê, the guerrilla forces immediately began to assess the outcome of the Garê operation. In all guerilla regions, the weaknesses, shortcomings, and measures to be taken soon came to the fore. In two months, major preparations had to be made. While the Turkish state's attacks continued, the KDP forces were actively attacking in order to sever communication routes between guerilla areas. Despite the time constraints and the KDP's attacks, however, all guerilla areas accomplished considerable preparation.

The victory in Garê brought significant gains for the guerilla forces, both in terms of morale and new guerrilla-style and tactics. The enthusiasm for victory was accompanied by the organization of resistance against a new and great attack. It was projected that the Turkish state, which had been humiliated by all of its tactics against a guerrilla force in Garê, would use all kinds of atrocities. The guerilla forces were on high alert in all regions and meticulously prepared to deal the enemy a blow in the event of an attack. The Turkish state was expected to launch an all-out invading attack on all Medya Defense Areas.


Air activity increased in all guerilla areas, with one fighter jet squadron taking off and the other landing. In guerilla regions, there were dozens of drones in the air at all times. Beginning on 19 April, numerous localities were subjected to severe air bombardment, and insurgent areas were extensively shelled with constant howitzer and mortar fire from the border lines. This action signalled the beginning of a new invading attack. On the evening of 23 April, reports began to circulate that the invading Turkish army was attempting to land military forces with helicopters in the locations of Avaşîn, Zap, and Metîna. The guerilla areas were heavily bombarded. The goal was to undermine the guerilla forces' psychological advantage and dismantle the defence system before the army arrived. According to the Turkish army's main tactic, the intense bombardment would break the guerrilla's defence structure in the centre, and the soldiers would be downed by helicopters. Turkey waged the technical war against the guerillas in this fashion for years. The infantry was deployed simply for due diligence and propaganda after the suspected guerilla units were extensively blasted and neutralized.


When the guerrillas began broadcasting information about the latest situation via radio on the first day, it was clear that the Turkish state was attacking all guerilla areas, and this was the first step of the invading attack. Helicopters attempted dozens of landings in the Avaşîn, Zap, and Metîna districts during the night. However the intervention of guerrillas armed with heavy weapons, made the helicopters fly away numerous times before landing. The downed soldiers remained still, waiting for the rest of the battalion to arrive. They were regularly bombarded around them by spy planes, attempting to protect them from a prospective guerilla attack. The Turkish state was attacked by guerilla forces in the first few minutes and was only able to down a tiny portion of its troops. However, they initially wanted to inflict a blow on the guerilla troops and demolish the defence system with severe bombardments. By positioning themselves in small teams with underground systems to counter all major bombardments, the guerilla forces maintained their power and strengthened their defence system. In this manner, while the bombardment continued, the guerilla forces studied the enemy's movement carefully and waited for them to reach the appropriate range, at which point the guerrillas launched their attack. The soldiers, who had been hit and were unable to advance, retreated while the bombardment resumed. As the army fled, the guerilla units vanished once more. The Turkish army's fundamental strategy was to establish a location by making contact and then bombard the detected region with all available air and ground forces. The guerilla forces' defence system was highly effective, and the guerrilla troops in the war tunnels and the guerrilla units in the field were constantly engaged in coordinated action. The Turkish state's attack on the guerrilla groups' communication apparatus also had no effect.


For a time, herds of soldiers dispersed around in order to disrupt the concentration of mobile guerrilla teams in the field and so attack and place themselves in the battle tunnels. Let's make an example to try to illustrate the situation on the field. Two guerrillas on the move in Avaşîn notice an enemy unit in the field and follow them for a time to assess the situation. Then they realize they've infiltrated the unit. Initially, two guerrillas use a sabotage method to target and attack an enemy unit, while another unit attempts to reinforce the hit enemy unit. Meanwhile, two guerrillas are positioned on the opposing unit's movement route for reinforcements and strike when the enemy unit is only a few meters away. This occurred in a single day. The Turkish army suffered scores of casualties, and all reconnaissance planes battled for four days without being able to locate the two guerrillas. Two guerillas arrived at their positions at the end of the fourth day. This event clearly demonstrates the new era's guerrilla-style and tactics. It clearly demonstrates the power of the human will. Two can succeed if they have determination, the desire to battle, and a steel will.


The guerilla forces, using war tunnels and mobile team warfare, put up a strong fight until mid-May, when they were able to halt the Turkish army's invasion effort and impede its advance. The guerrilla's new style and tactical shift have begun to sharpen. From now on, it will enrich and grow. The qualitative level of the measures taken, as well as the way of achieving results, are now becoming obvious. The Pyramid Hill battle in Avaşîn revealed the qualitative level and demonstrated that revolutionary actions, as well as active resistance to an invasion attack, can be carried out. By making modifications within the course of change, the guerrilla forces were able to analyze and enrich the results of the new era style and technique at every stage.


The guerrillas, on the other hand, developed their own airpower by readapting existing equipment. Martyr Delal's aerial activities of the Air Defense Forces damaged the mentality of the invading Turkish army. Perhaps only the Martyr Delal Air Defense Force possessed unmanned aerial aircraft capable of breaching NATO's air defence system. During the Garê offensive, the Martyr Delal Air Defense Force was one of the factors that surprised the Turkish forces. While scores of surveillance planes and assault helicopters were in the air, Martyr Delal Air Defense Force captured enemy aircraft, personnel, and aerial bombardments.


The Turkish state launched an attack on all human values on the tenth day of the invasion attack. When Mamresho was unable to break the resistance of the guerrillas fighting in the battle tunnels, and all of their attacks were repulsed, they devised a solution involving the use of poisonous and chemical gas. The guerrilla forces took extensive precautions against the use of chemical gas during the Garê operation, but the fact that the measures taken in the Mamreşo area did not achieve sufficient results is currently being thoroughly probed by the guerrilla forces. Documents made clear to the public that the Turkish state was powerless in the face of guerrilla resistance and had resorted to terrible tactics. The invading Turkish state attempted to widen the invasion onslaught until mid-May, but when it was unable to progress, it attempted to station itself on the highlands of Mamreşo, Mervanos, Zendura, and Qela Bedewê, where it had landed men in the early days. They were compelled to withdraw from Avaşîn's Dola Mara, Dola Conferenceê, and Tabura Ereba regions on 1 June.

When the KDP turned to the Metîna area on 5 June, this time to the Werxelê slope and a few days later to the Girê Sor area, the invading Turkish army, no longer ready to fight, attacked again on 7 June. They launched an all-out assault on the war tunnels, armed with chemical weapons. As a result, practically all attention was drawn to the fighting tunnels. Despite the fact that the Turkish state's barbaric attack methods were revealed and shared with the public, all states and institutions ignored/ignored them. What was discussed behind the scenes during Hulusu Akar's visit to Berlin is now known.


Werxelê, Zendura, and Girê Sor's resistances were epic in nature, lasting for months. There were no toxic or chemical weapons left unused in the war tunnels. Heavy bombardments and daily repetitive attacks with tons of explosives continued to be used in psychological warfare. The guerrillas in the war tunnels resisted tenaciously, demonstrating amazing valour with will and determination. This heroic example has served as a powerful motivator for every guerrilla resistance. The cause for the big leaps in the new guerilla-style period and tactics was created. All branches, from air operations to coordinated team operations, infiltration operations to assassination operations, raid operations to coups and sabotage operations.

Guerrilla forces were also present. The Turkish state hoped to produce a psychological effect on the rebel groups and shatter their resistance by intensifying its chemical-weapons strikes. No force can resist as well as the guerilla, and as the struggle lasted, the Turkish army began to get significant blows. They were the victims of their own psychological battle, and their fundamental tactic was to deploy their soldiers on the hills where they initially landed and to defend their soldiers against guerilla attacks. There were some local activities in the Kartal and Stunê regions of Avaşîn from time to time. However, the primary goal of these mobilizations was to disperse the guerrilla forces' concentration and consolidate their posture. They couldn't hide their annoyance if a retreat had taken place. As a result, they are attempting to confine their soldiers as soon as possible by erecting fortresses where they are located.

In the face of guerilla opposition, the Turkish state could not hold out. The Turkish army, which has been defeated numerous times in this unjust war against the guerrillas, will be defeated. When the guerillas developed the theory of the new era of guerrilla's doctrine against today's military technology, some collaborators dismissed it as an unrealistic and pointless effort. The outcomes of the one-year struggle provide clear evidence of how the Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla accomplished the impossible. Through practice and resistance, the guerillas showed the path to triumph and the success of their tactics. Neither the outpost, nor war technology, nor chemical weapons are capable of protecting the invaders anymore. When we look at the last action of the year, we can easily see this. The Turkish army, positioned on the Martyr Munzur Hill in Zap, was swept from the hill by the guerrillas within 10 minutes. The soldiers fled, leaving their dead and military equipment behind. The guerrillas suffered no casualties in this successful revolutionary operation.

The absolute result will never change. The victory will belong to the guerrillas.
