YJA Star guerrillas Aliye Kiye, Hacer Sucin and Hatice Ay, who fell as martyrs on 19 September in the rural area of Dicle, in the province of Amed, were not given to their families and kept in Diyarbakır Forensic Medicine Institute (ATK) despite having been identified.
Hatice Ay's mother, Hidayet, and brother, Ayatollah Ay, then started a Justice Vigil in front of the Diyarbakır Courthouse demanding the body of their relative. As a result of the family's resistance, Ay's body was eventually handed over to the family on Friday night after the procedures.
Hatice Ay's body was taken from Diyarbakır ATK and brought to the neighbourhood of Hewrê in Kulp by a convoy.
