Guerrilla documents capsule with chemical agent

In another video from the guerrilla area in southern Kurdistan, the use of chemical warfare agents by the Turkish army is documented. The footage shows a capsule containing burnt powder.

Numerous indications prove that the Turkish army is using chemical weapons on a massive scale in its invasion of guerrilla-held Medya Defense Zones in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq), which started in mid-April. According to a balance sheet of the People's Defense Forces (HPG) published on 15 July, 1198 attacks with chemical weapons have been recorded within three months, accompanied by thermobaric bombs and suspected tactical nuclear explosives. Regarding the chemical weapons used, the guerrillas have now documented further evidence.

The video obtained by ANF was recorded in the Şehîd Pîrdoxan tunnel at Girê Amêdî. A female guerrilla fighter says in the video: "Today is 11 July 2022. The container seen here fell into the position when the enemy was advancing on 10 July and carrying out detonations with chemical agents. The container has no inscription and contains a powder."

The female guerrilla further explains that the inscription on the capsule thrown into the tunnel was burnt. She says that the matter inside caught fire and the residue resembled burnt coal. "The enemy bombarded the war tunnels at Girê Şehîd Pîrdoxan with explosives three times and used chemical agents four times between 5.30am and 7am on 10 July. This is the container of the chemical agent used," she concludes.
