Kongreya Star: Turkey’s attacks aim for a massacre of Kurds
In addition to Maxmur, the Turkish state has also bombarded the Kurdish inhabited areas in the Shehba region.
The Shehba Canton Council of Kongreya Star -the women's umbrella organisation in North-East Syria- made a statement to the press on the massacre of three women by Turkish air raid in Maxmur Refugee Camp in southern Kurdistan, northern Iraq on Wednesday.
The press statement, read in Kurdish and Arabic, highlighted that: “The people of Maxmur fled genocidal attacks in their homeland 25 years ago. The South Kurdistan government under the shadow of the AKP government has been imposing an embargo on the Maxmur camp for about 9 months. The camp under embargo has been experiencing a serious lack of medical and basic supplies for the residents.”
Denouncing the Turkish state’s violation of the global ceasefire urged by the United Nations and the World Health Organization, the statement continued:
“In addition to Maxmur, the Turkish state has also bombarded the Kurdish inhabited areas in the Shehba region. These attacks aim for a massacre of the Kurds. The Turkish state, which has bombed Maxmur with the support of the Kurdistan Regional Government, is pursuing Ottoman dreams.”
The statement also condemned the international circles and the United Nations that remain silent on the attacks and embargo.
