HPG reports twelve chemical weapons attacks in one day
The Turkish army used chemical weapons twelve times and unconventional bombs four times against guerrilla positions in Southern Kurdistan on Tuesday.
In its daily overview of the war in Kurdistan, the Press Centre of the People's Defence Forces (HPG) reported that the Turkish army used chemical weapons twelve times and unconventional bombs four times against guerrilla positions in Southern Kurdistan on Tuesday. In addition, the invading army carried out three airstrikes and dozens of attacks with howitzers and heavy weapons.
"The Kurdistan Freedom Guerrilla has shown the whole world that it is the sole defender of the existence and achievements of our oppressed people through its resistance against the occupation operation of the Turkish colonial army. The fascist state of the Republic of Turkey cannot even tolerate the terms 'Kurdish' and 'Kurdistan' and uses all kinds of dirty war methods to achieve results in its genocidal policy. With the full support of NATO, the Turkish army is intensively using banned bombs and chemical weapons in the guerrilla resistance areas. Nevertheless, it cannot break the unwavering will and sacrificial resistance of our forces. Our forces are responding with Apoist militancy to all attacks and continue to deal heavy blows to the occupiers with effective actions. As a result of these actions, four occupants were punished."
GUERRILLA ACTION IN ZAP
According to HPG, mobile guerrilla groups struck Turkish invading forces with heavy weapons in the Zap region at 9.20am and 4.25pm on 20 December, killing four soldiers. The actions were directed against soldiers who were near guerrilla positions in the Çemço area, located in the Sheladize town in Amadiya district and is heavily contested.
ATTACKS BY THE TURKISH ARMY
The guerrilla positions in Çemço were attacked ten times on the same day by the Turkish army with chemical weapons. In parallel, the occupation forces set fire to car tires and plastic and channeled the toxic smoke into the guerrilla positions. HPG also reported two chemical weapons attacks and four uses of prohibited bombs against guerrilla positions in the vicinity of the nearby village of Sîda. Both areas were also shelled dozens of times with howitzers and heavy weapons.
On the other hand, Turkish fighter jets bombed Deşta Kafya in Gare, Şehîd Şerîf in Xakurke and the Girê Şehîd Çekdar resistance area on Tuesday.
