Civilian areas systematically targeted
The Turkish state is systematically bombing civilian areas in South Kurdistan. Since last year, dozens of villages have been forcibly evacuated due to Turkish state attacks. Many civilians lost their lives in the attacks.
The Federal Kurdistan Region Environmental Protection Board declared that the invading Turkish state had damaged an area of approximately one million acres in a statement it released on 9 January.
In a report prepared by the Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in June 2021, it is said that at least 103 civilians lost their lives, 148 villages were evacuated and 500 villages were under threat of evacuation because of the Turkish state's attacks on South Kurdistan in the past five years.
