People of Sulaymaniyah protest against Turkish massacre

Masses protested against the Turkish massacre in Kunamasi region of southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq).

People of Sulaymaniyah gathered at the central Seholeke Street in protest at the Turkish shelling of Kunamasi picnic area yesterday which killed 2 people and wounded 8 others, including 4 children and 2 women.

The demonstration was organised by Tevgera Azadi. Wehab Ahmed, member of the Prepatory Committee, spoke here and called on all political forces to act together against Turkey’s occupation attacks.  

On the other hand, local security forces prevented the people from gathering at the Leyla Qasim Park to protest against the deadly Turkish attack. Blockading the park before the demo began, the security forces did not allow the people to join the protest citing the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse.
