HPG reports ongoing guerrilla actions in Southern Kurdistan

HPG and YJA Star guerrillas intervened against the construction of military roads in the guerrilla area and struck Turkish construction teams in Southern Kurdistan.

In its daily published balance sheet on the war in Kurdistan, the press centre of the People's Defence Forces (HPG) reported that mobile guerrilla units intervened against the construction of military roads by the Turkish army at Girê FM in the guerrilla-held Medya Defense Zones in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq).

Turkey launched a large-scale invasion in the guerrilla area on Iraqi territory in mid-April and is establishing new military bases and roads for military purposes in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) with the approval and support of the ruling party, KDP.

On 14 November, guerrillas with heavy weapons targeted an excavator used for road construction at Girê FM, forcing the Turkish army construction team to retreat. On 15 November, YJA Star guerrillas struck the construction site again with heavy weapons, after which the deployed excavator was withdrawn. On 16 November, the invading forces at Girê Cûdî were hit by the guerrillas with light weapons.

Regarding the attacks of the Turkish army on Wednesday, the HPG said that a prohibited bomb was used in the Şehîd Serxwebûn position in the resistance area of Çemço. The areas of Sîda, Çemço, Girê Amêdî and Girê FM were attacked dozens of times with howitzers, mortars, tanks and heavy weapons.
