Turkish Starts Operation Against Kurdish Rebels Near Iranian, Iraqi Borders

In the last four days the Turkish Army was engaging the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) near the town of Şemdinli in the Hakkari province. The operation take place near the borders of Iran and Iraq, and involve aviation, armored vehicles and artillery. The Turkish media describe the situation as a police operation.

Reportedly, the action intensified on September 24, when a PKK unit had attacked a Turkish outpost near Şemdinli. According to Turkish sources, one Turkish soldier was killed and four soldiers were injured during the attack from the highlands.

The Turkish Army moved on to the supposed Kurdish positions in the mountains first,  and then raided Kurdish towns, Şemdinli amongst them. From the 26th to the 27th of September, three clashes took place near the town. Turkish command reports “eliminating 12 Kurdish terrorists”.

The Iraqi Kurdistan independence referendum that took place on September 25, has been a matter of unrest to Turkey, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan having threatened Kurdistan with economic, security and military measures as a response to the referendum. Turkey and Iraq started joint military training maneuvers on the Iraqi Kurdistan border the day after the referendum.

    turks – the second in the frontline against kurds – after syrian led coalition – will be interesting how illegitimate yankees will react

    • Rodger

      Not much they can do if they want to keep access to the Black Sea. Turkey is completely free to bar the straits to the US.

    • Kawa Asinger

      Don’t worry about the Yankees. No one in the Middle East can touch them. But, Russia has already said it respects the legitimate aspiration of the Kurdish people. Lavrov said it, and in a recent conference with Gollum (Tayyip Recep Erdogan) Vladimir Putin said it as well. Man, I love ❤️ how Russia literally shits on turkey, in Turkey! 😂😂😂😂

  • Gavin Allen

    Turkish terrorist scum. Burn those filthy invaders in their tanks.

    • Justin

      Who did the dirty work of the ottoman turks during the genocide or amenians!

      THE KURDS

      AND THEY ADMIT IT!

      WHY DID THEY DO IT?

      TO STEAL LAND!

      AND U SUPPORT THIS

      THEN U SHOULD SUPPORT NAZI’s KILLING JEWS TOO AND INVADING EUROPE!

      • Tudor Miron

        Those zios actually did – that’s their money funded Hitlers rise. They just don’t like to admit it but this doesn’t change the facts.

      • Kawa Asinger

        The Kurds didn’t do it, it was a small group of Kurds. A Kurdish chieftain who worked with the ottomans. The Kurdish peasants were just as much oppressed as the Armenians. In Dersim Kurds and Armenians fought side by side. So take your fabricated history and shove it up your ass! 🖕

        Nice try. Trying to blame Kurds for the genocide that turds committed. Fucking mongoloid inbred megalomaniac spastic freaks! 🖕

        • Justin

          “Soon after the Armenian genocide, the Kurds too became victims of state policies. There have been many massacres against Kurds, starting right after the founding of the Republic of Turkey in 1923. Although we Kurds are still here, we and the Armenians share a fate,”

          AFTER THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE!
          The Kurds started feeling the same as the Armenians!
          So the Kurds felt bad about it when suddenly they became the victims (not before)!

          The “dirty work” was done by the KURDS! NEVER FORGET THAT!!!!!!!

          “Exactly how many Armenians were living in southeastern cities like Diyarbakir, Van, Bitlis and Mus before the genocide is hard to tell, but they were no minority. The Armenians were just one of many groups who lived on these plains and in these mountains. They lived alongside the Assyrians, the Arabs, and the Kurds.

          “But these days Diyarbakir, the largest city in the southeast, has no Armenian community left. Those who survived the genocide migrated to Istanbul or abroad, and the families who remained mostly left the city in the 1950s and 60s. There are only the so-called “hidden Armenians”: the descendants of those who converted to Islam to save their lives, or of Armenian children who were saved from the massacres by Ottoman soldiers and Kurds and were brought up as Muslims.”

          GUILTY!!!!!!
          GUILTY!!!!!!!
          GUILTY!!!!!!!!

          It was all to STEAL LAND!!
          Nothing has changed!
          This is no different to Israel stealing Palestine!
          And the Kurds are supported by Israel!

          SCUM OF THE EARTH!
          Kurds are Gypsies! Its in their blood to steal! everyone in Romania and Spain knows this fact!

          • Kawa Asinger

            Keep quoting wikipedia, you fucking wikipedia scholar. I gave a professor and other sources. In Ugur Umit Ungor’s presentation he clearly shows that the Armenian population were higher in Kurdish majority areas than Turkish majority areas during the genocide, that disproves your bullshit theory that Kurds killed them all.You’re probably a turd living in Oz mate, get fucked! So you tried but FUCKING FAILED MISERABLY. 🖕🖕🖕🖕

      • dutchnational

        By law the man who orders the killing is the most responsible. Except for Justin apparantly.

  • Serious Dude

    PKK gives Kurds a bad name.

    • Gavin Allen

      You don’t know shit. PKK are awesome, and represent the most egalitarian democratic social movement in human history.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Is that the US version of Human History that has comprehensive records world events since last Monday Gavin ?

        • Kawa Asinger

          No the Turkish fabricated one, which denies the Armenian genocide. Now they try to blame on the Kurds, because they know they did it. Then they deny it as “self-defence”. Or the fake Islamic twisted events, that claims the holocaust was faked. But not much is expected from fascist simpletons. 🖕

      • Serious Dude

        You believe that terrorism is awesome and egalitarian right?

        • Kawa Asinger

          And you believe that Turkish tyranny is awesome and democratic, right? The Turkish state banned everything that was Kurdish, and denied the existence of the Kurdish ethnicity. People spent lifetime in jail for even writing or speaking in Kurdish. As a consequence of these fascist laws and regulations the PKK came about as a reactionary force. The PKK agreed to a ceasefire in 2013, but it was Turkey that broke the ceasefire and put curfews on all Kurdish cities. Then proceeded to destroy the cities with its military. So next time speak the whole truth. Don’t try to miss falsehood with truth. But nice try in trying throw dust in people’s eyes, you fascist scum! 😂🖕

          • Real Anti-Racist Action

            Turkey calls Kurd’s citizens. Kurd’s only call non-Kurd’s trash to be genocided like your fathers did to Armenian Christians.
            For this us Christians shall never forget, you will genocide every Christian on earth if we allow you to continue your forever genocide against us.
            For this reason Christians across the globe are now mobilizing and making contacts with our Christian brothers inside of the middle east and around the world to organizing Christian’s resistance fighting this life and death struggle against the Kurdish-bigots of the world! Never again will we be fooled by the Kurdish-Master-Race bigotry that deems all of us as toys to be beating dead with shovels and laughed at.
            Hip-hip-hurrah!

          • Serious Dude

            First of all, the PKK is considered a terrorist organization by US, EU and Israel, not only by Turkey. Secondly, in Turkey there is a Kurdish party in the parliament. PKK with terrorism, delegitimizes the aspirations of the Kurdish people. Also, they are forcing young children in their ranks, they are attacking centrist and right-wing Kurdish and Assyrian parties and they are burning villages. PKK is the Kurdish Hezbollah.

          • dutchnational

            EU does not consider PKK to be terrorist anymore. Judges have decreed so in several EU countries and in the EU judges are the ultimate abiters.

          • Serious Dude

            Do you support PKK?

        • dutchnational

          As for me, no to the first (including state terrorism) and yes to the second.

          • Serious Dude

            Egalitarianism is an utopia, it never works. Unfortunately.

            1.5 million WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND MEN!

            Never forget these words…..

            “mostly Kurdish and Turkish, were the main enemies of the Armenian patriots”

            1.5 million not just murdered but slaughtered, mutilated, starved, crucified, burnt alive! Once friends of Kurds! Fucking SCUM!

            THEY DID THIS BECAUSE THE TURKS PROMISED THEM THEY COULD LIVE ON THIS LAND! SO THEY DID IT, KILLED THEIR FRIENDS!!

            NOW THEY WANT MORE LAND!!!!!

            No way Russia will allow Kurds who killed Orthodox Christians MORE LANDS!

            Kurds are going to die for what they did!

            And their masters Turkey will do it and the Armenians and the Russians WILL ALLOW IT!!!!

            This is KARMA!!!!

          • Kawa Asinger

            And your source? the documents? their reliability? the academics that accuse the Kurds? and I mean third party non-political academics, not Turkgay mongoloids.

          • Kawa Asinger

            Turks are buying weapons from the Jew, so are the Iraqis, and Iran. So your full of shit if you back Turkey. 😂🖕😂🖕

          • Justin

            Nobody is denying that Turks are scum! But the Kurds are far worse!

            Turkey has always hated Armenians because they are Christians!

            Kurds shared lands with Armenians and even lived in peace with them!
            But during ww1 the Turks offered them to take Armenian lands because the Turks preferred Muslim Kurds over Armenian Christians to live in its eastern regions!

            And so who was the MAIN FORCE IN THE EAST??

            THE KURDS!
            Who did they slaughter under the promise of lands?
            THEIR FRIENDS THE ARMENIAN CHRISTIANS!

            AND I QUOTE…
            “”During the Armenian patriotic movement of the late 19th century, the Ottoman Muslims of Eastern Asia Minor, who happened to be mostly Kurdish and Turkish, were the main enemies of the Armenian patriots.”

            1.5 million men, women children! Kurdish soldiers fighting for Turkey for land to be their own! killing their friends!

            So who is more scum?

            Turkey for wanting to kill its enemy it always hated?
            OR
            Kurds for killing its friends for its greed of land to be their own?

            KURDS ARE MUCH BIGGER SCUM THAN TURKS!!!

            MUCH, MUCH BIGGER SCUM!!!

        • Kawa Asinger

          Here is another fucking fabricator of history. The Kurds did not commit genocide against 1.5 million Armenians, it was the Turks and many countries around the world accept this. The Turks are being held responsible so now they try to shif the blame on the Kurds to detract from their struggle for freedom. I guess, a fascist gonna fascist. 🖕Spain thinks we are the best, it is turks chanting ALLAHU SNACKBAR in the streets of all European countries. Fucking mongoloid turds trying to steal Armenian, Greek and Kurdish lands. Fucking petty thieves, your days are numbered. 😂🖕

          • Justin

            YOU ARE WRONG!!!!
            (The Kurds back stabbed the Armenians who were their friends because the Ottomans preferred Muslim Kurds to live in its East rather than Christian Armenians) Therefore KURDS ARE FUCKING SCUM!!!!!

            During the Islamic Conquest…
            ————————————

            “Kurds and Armenians became increasingly distinct, both culturally and politically, as Armenians chose Christianity as their official religion, Kurds converted to Islam.”

            Kurds chose to join Islam due to its advantages under Ottoman rule!
            ______________________________________________________________

            During the Ottoman Empire… (they were friends)
            ———————————–

            “However, Kurds found some degree of friendship in these new immigrants from Central Asia (Turkey conquered their lands). In some areas of Eastern Turkey, the Kurds and Armenians lived together in the same villages and in other parts, they remained separate.

            Until the Russo-Turkish War of 1828–29, there had not been hostile feeling between the Kurds and the Armenians, and as late as 1877–1878, the mountaineers of both ethnic groups had lived fairly well together.[3] Kurds and Armenians lived in peace for many years.”

    The best way for all this is to be resolved peacefully for the best for all parties, no one want’s to see another war or another blood share or maybe someone does want exactly that? The best way is for the Kurds to give up this Independence and all this to quiet down, but I don’t know how will that go, they are been promised backup from the Zionists Israeli but that won’t save them either, so if the Kurds don’t want blood they should give up on this, Israel will not do shit here, don’t you understand that this Kurdistan that Kurds are want to make goes from Israel-Syria-Iraq and lands in Iran the perfect high-way for Israel to get the hand on, on Iranians. This is pre-think with many words of support but in reality, no one thought that Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and Iran will act this much aggressively, well who hoped for that are too wrong in that.

    • Kawa Asinger

      You say resolve peacefully then you blame the Kurds, goes to show your bias immediately. The Kurds did call upon Baghdad to negotiate, dialogue, peace, pathway, and everything that is peaceful. But you can’t reason with savages can you now? And as for an invasion, The US already warned all countries against that. And Turkey isn’t going to do shit.

      • SKY

        Hah, Turkey does not give a shit what the US think, Turkey has right to defend its borders, who gives a shit who Us warned or not there are 4 states here involved, Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran making the so-called “Kurdistan” inside in those countries will be impossible, you think these countries will let this happen. Hah, you Kurds have too many hopes from the US, in this situation, the US can’t-do shit. They are using you-you are proxy for them and for Zionists Israeli. Yes keep going that path, I mean it won’t be bad for me, but you will be in middle and you will be shelled from 4 different sides you know.

        • Kawa Asinger

          Turkey does have the right to defend its borders, only if there is a threat on the border. Which the KRG has made clear that there isn’t one. So your first argument failed. Nobody spoke about Iran or Turkey, or a Kurdistan inside of them. We are talking about Southern Kurdistan (“Iraqi-Kurdistan”). Syria? The Syrian FM already spoke about a Kurdish entity within a federalized Syria, so that argument also failed. They are not using us you blissful ignorant, they want to make they don’t help create another dictatorship or create more instability, remember this is the Trump administration. So that argument also failed. We are not a “proxy” for anyone. A people asking for their rights is not against any laws, not even Iraqi law. Just because Israel came in support of Kurdistan doesn’t mean anything. The whole western world are calling for a united Iraq, does that make them Zionist? So that argument of yours also fails. Shelled? nah don’ think so. Shelling a population for carrying out a peaceful referendum, and housing 1.8 million IDP’s and refugees will not look good for neither countries involved. There will be sanctions, and an immediate reaction from the world community. If they wanted to do that, they would have, but they won’t. Neither can they do that. Furthermore, Turkey claimed it will shut the oil pipeline from KRG to ceyhan, Vladimir Putin himself warned that this will not be in the benefit of anyone. Also, Iraq cannot bring in the military to attack the Peshmerga, as the peshmerga are constitutionally part of the Iraqi military. And if they are attacked by neighbouring countries, and Iraq stands back and watches then that is a gross violation of the Iraqi constitution and the framework by which Federal Iraq works. So, no war is going to break out.

  • dutchnational

    Turkey must be in a very desparate situation if they carry out “policing” actions with battle tanks and artillery.

    A “policing” action followed by raiding kurdish towns which implies firstly, and rightly, that the towns are not turkish and secondly that Turkey is not in control of those city and considers it unlikely they will come into control of them, because then what is the point of raiding : causing damage without taking (or being able to) control.

    It is highly likely that 12 civillians were killed as in Turkey any kurd, any opposition, is being a terrorist.
