HPG-BIM warns KDP is preparing to get involved in war
HPG Press Liaison Center (HPG-BIM) warned that the KDP is preparing to "get involved" in the "historic war" between the Kurdish people and the Turkish occupation and called on all Kurdish forces to take responsibility to prevent such an attack.
In a written statement, the HPG Press Liaison Centre (HPG-BİM) warned: "According to the statements made by a KDP official speaking in the capacity of deputy Peshmerga Minister and the Governor of Duhok, as well as some intelligence information we received, the KDP forces are preparing to intervene in this strategic war between us and the Turkish state."
War from Avaşîn to Metina
The HPG-BİM's statement is as follows:
“It is known that we are in a period of very heavy conflict with the invading Turkish state in a large area stretching from Avaşîn to Metina. Especially since 25 May, our forces and the colonialist fascist Turkish army have been engaged in heavy clashes on the Metina-Amediyê Hill line. Although the Turkish state uses the most modern technologies and banned chemical weapons against our forces, it is stuck and cannot advance.
The KDP is preparing to go to war
This war is a very historical war between the Kurdish people and the Turkish occupation. However, according to the statements made by a KDP official and the Governor of Duhok, who spoke in the capacity of deputy Peshmerga Minister yesterday, as well as some intelligence information we received, KDP forces are preparing to intervene in this strategic war between us and the Turkish state. There is a state of war between our forces and the Turkish state on the northern front of Metina. In the east of Metina, a much more intense conflict continues. If the KDP forces hold the southern side of Metina, the siege and destruction plan envisaged by the Turkish state on our forces will be completed. Thus, the KDP will also be involved in this destruction process. It is clear that this dangerous plan of the KDP towards Metina will mean a declaration of war against us. Because we have forces in important places in Serê Metina. This will mean starting a new process that we do not want at all.
The risk of the spread of war
This means that the support that the KDP has provided to the Turkish state so far will move to a higher level. This means the realization of the Turkish state's long-planned plan to transform the war into an inter-Kurdish war. It should be known that the KDP's involvement in the war and the help to the Turkish state in attacking our forces in Metina, would not be limited to Metina only, and means spreading the war.
All Kurdish forces should prevent these new attacks
In this respect, we call on all the intellectual, artistic and patriotic institutions, especially the responsible political forces from South Kurdistan, and all Kurdish forces to take up their responsibilities to prevent such an attack.
Despite everything, we have tried to take our responsibilities at the highest level so that this process does not turn into an inter-Kurdish conflict. However, it is clear that if our forces are attacked, they will defend themselves. The current phase is heading towards a very dangerous point. For this reason, we call on all our people and all patriotic forces to take up their responsibilities in this regard.”
