Turkish army bombs a village in Amadiya, South Kurdistan

The Turkish state continues its genocidal campaign against the Kurdish people and their lands in various parts of Kurdistan.

The occupying Turkish army bombarded the surroundings of the Guherz village in Amadiya in the countryside of Duhok governorate in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) today noon.

According to initial reports, the vineyards and houses belonging to the local people were damaged as a result of the attack, while no information was immediately available about possible casualties.

Attacks by Turkey that violate international law have been routine in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq) for years. The Turkish air force bombs the territory of the KRI and Iraq on an almost daily basis, especially where guerrillas are suspected. However, civilian settlement areas are also regularly attacked by the Turkish army, including the Yazidi settlement area of Shengal and the Maxmur refugee camp. With its aerial terror, Ankara is pursuing a targeted policy of displacement - in particular by deliberately destroying civilian infrastructure.
