The HPG Press Center announced the identity of the guerrilla who fell as a martyr on 7 July, as a result of the attacks with chemical gas carried out by the Turkish state.
The HPG statement said: "The Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla has opened a new page in the history of freedom of the peoples by developing one of the most magnificent resistances in history against the inhuman attacks of the invading Turkish state. With its modern war tactics developed both in war tunnels and as mobile teams, the guerrillas inflicted one of the heaviest defeats on the colonial Turkish state in the Avaşîn area. Unable to hold on against our freedom guerrillas, the invading Turkish state uses all inhuman practices and the most advanced technology to turn the situation around."
The statement added: "The invading Turkish army used poisonous and chemical gases against our guerrillas every day, and bombed the Resistance Areas dozens of times. As a result of poisonous and chemical gas attacks, our comrade Baz fell as a martyr on 7 July.

Comrade Baz was born into a patriotic family in Gever. Shortly after joining the guerrilla ranks, comrade Baz joined one of the first groups to fight against the inhuman attacks of ISIS fascism against our people in Rojava and Shengal. Comrade Baz, who made great progress by learning about the guerrilla struggle during the war, knew how to be an exemplary Apoist militant for all his comrades with his self-sacrificing and brave features. Thanks to his boldness and uncompromising stance on the battlefield, he had an important share in the successes achieved against ISIS fascism. Despite being wounded twice, he did not reduce his determination even for a moment. After Shengal was liberated from ISIS mercenaries, he returned to the mountains of free Kurdistan, in 2018, and continued his struggle for revolution, this time in the Avaşîn area."
The statement continued: “Particularly in 2019 and 2020, comrade Baz participated in many actions against the Turkish army. Comrade Baz, who won the love of all his comrades with his humble and sincere comradeship, took the lead against the attacks developed by the genocidal Turkish army against the Avaşîn area. He carried out important duties and responsibilities in the development of the Werxelê and Girê Sor resistances, which are still going on."
