Clashes in eastern Turkey: Turkish security forces suffered losses

54

Reported clashes in eastern Turkey. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of this country reports that the military personnel of the Turkish security agencies entered the battle with representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). This organization is recognized by Ankara as terrorist.


During the clash, the Turkish security forces suffered losses. According to the latest information, one was killed (a gendarmerie officer) and two soldiers were wounded. The name of the deceased officer was named - Usman Mehmet Celik.

The clash took place in the village of Lice in the Diyarbakir region. It should be emphasized that the headquarters of the 2nd Turkish Air Force Command is located in Diyarbakir, as well as the 8th Air Wing, consisting of F-16 fighters. The 7th Helicopter Air Group of the Turkish Air Force is also located there. According to some reports, the main target of the PKK members was military facilities in this region of Turkey.

Turkish officials report that additional gendarmerie units are being pulled into Diyarbakir due to the activity of the Kurdish armed formations. The clashes in and around Lice began the previous evening and continued throughout the night.

Recall that Turkey is home to about 18 million ethnic Kurds. At the same time, the relations of many Kurdish leaders with official Ankara are very tense. In the eastern regions of Turkey, where Kurds are predominantly inhabited, Turkish security forces often conduct military operations, but they cause a response, including with the involvement of the armed wing of the PKK.

      few people are interested in except for the Kurds

      According to the census of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, published in 1878 at the Berlin Congress, 362 people lived in Diyarbekir and the surrounding villages, of which:
      Armenians - 180 (000%)
      Turks - 130 (000%)
      Kurds - 40 (000%)
      Chaldeans - 8 (000%)
      zazaki - 2 (300%)
      Yezidis - 2 (000%)
      Almost the entire Armenian population was deported and annihilated during the Armenian Genocide in the first half of the XNUMXth century.

              The self-determination of the Kurds is their internal question. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed, they lacked the will to unite and stand. It is worth helping those who are actively fighting, and not those who are killing the occupiers of Kurdistan from around the corner. How they helped Vietnam, Cuba and others in their time. hi

              Isn't that so ??? Of course, Taburetkin is lower in rank than the head of the housing department, but he builds planes and engines for them with his team, and a completely incomprehensible education and class by his wife Vasilyeva. But let's keep quiet about space, and now ships are also built not by shipbuilders, but by managers and manufacturers of counterfeit discs. So, personnel changes should be expected in sports soon. Managers stand in line in droves, oh, how right Ivan Krylov is 150 years ago.

        Kurdistan within Turkey should be interesting to Russia
        Brilliant thought! It only remains to figure out how to hold our bases when the Turks become interested in slippers within Syria, and they supply them with heavy weapons with active support. and up to the heap the Bosphorus will be put on "scheduled repairs" so that our KChF does not dart back and forth.
        Assess the military potential of Turkey in the region. and then start raving.

      What would he do? There was a naval base in Tartus. That is, no one would have climbed. The Arabs were strictly divided into good and bad. The system is configured. Pay attention to the verbs in the past tense relative to THAT current moment. And until the moment of "tuning" everything is there, and in all corners of the "contacts" of empires. But at least Powers was "thrown off" over the Urals. Every moment has its own conventions ... But naturally we have a free country, so everyone wants something of their own. Well, there so that the Russian boot was healed to the sole or something like that. And naturally there is no understanding why we do not equate neighboring cities with tanks for every sneeze. Why then tanks if you do not fight the "sneezes".

      Yes, in the USSR they would not do anything, because then the Turks sat like mice in a hole and squeaked plaintively.
      I often remember Chancellor Bezborodko, when he said, "With us, not one cannon in Europe could fire without our permission, but I don’t know how it will be with you."
      This was also the case under the USSR. Until two cheerful traitorous friends appeared.

    The Kurds are militant, but disunited throughout the BV. There are about 45 million of them in total. In Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. Their dream program is to create a single "Kurdistan", so all of the above countries are definitely against. Previously, the USSR supported the PKK, making it the fifth column in the region, and most importantly in Turkey. Today, Russia, on the contrary, helps Turkey
    displace Kurds from the Syrian border zone with Turkey. The Kurds have again crossed over to the United States, despite the fact that they have already "thrown" them more than once, in Iraq and Syria, promising them to create a Kurdish autonomy in the BV.
    Today the Kurds are already opposed to Russia.

And each clan (or teip?) Considers itself superior to all others and them (others), respectively, hates! By and large, there are no more enemies of the Kurds than the Kurds themselves, and you will not find!

        Reasoning at the household level. And if more serious, then:
        A genetic study of haplogroups indicates the kinship of modern Kurds with the peoples of the Caucasus - Azeibarjan, Armenia, Georgia, as well as Jews. But unlike all of them, the Kurds do not have their own statehood, although their total number exceeds any of the above. When dividing the BV and Africa in 1922, into states (Egypt under the ruler), the population of Jews, Kurds and Gypsies was not taken into account. Jews received "statehood" after the Second World War,
        with the support of Stalin, and the gypsies and Kurds were left "overboard." Although Hitler was one of his outcasts, he put the Jews and the Tsigan. Today, the United States is successfully playing the "Kurdish card" for itself. They successfully “maneuver” them between Turkey, Syria and Russia. They easily intercepted this "Kurdish card" of the USSR from Russia, the successor of the USSR. The Kurds actively helped Russia to oust ISIS from Syria, today Russia threw them in favor of Erdogan. And here's the result, the Kurds are already threatening to attack the Russian military base located in northern Syria.
        A holy place is never empty. We "threw" the Kurds, allies in the USSR, naturally, they went over to the United States. This is our foreign international "policy" today. We are gradually losing everything that the USSR conquered with blood. Now blood is pouring - in the "opposite direction".
        We are losing the former republics of the USSR with blood. hi

    I read your reasoning.
    I do not know.
    NEVER,
    BEFORE YET, there is no leader who will lead ..
    And there is a leader, there would be a task.
    Lenin, Mao, Che..u or so on.
    Man in the right place at the right time ...
    And not necessarily, as it turns out to him for success, Roosevelt's Harvard education.
    The level of the technical school is enough. wink

    If anyone has forgotten, recently, after Turkey began to indulge in a lot of unnecessary things to Russia, Russia announced cooperation with the Kurds to create and serve at checkpoints against pro-Turkish militants in Syria. How much and what kind of weapons Russia is transferring to the Kurds within the framework of this cooperation is a mystery shrouded in darkness. But, here it surfaced ...
    And there was no need to open your mouth.

    A common mess, I think that such news will sound for a very long time and often. Kurdistan is of little interest to anyone, except for the Kurds naturally!

    Yes, not quite ordinary - this is a veiled hint to the Turkish sultan, so as not to climb where he is not asked. His home is full of problems, and he is still trying to return the Crimea, straining Russia. Let him scratch his curly head, otherwise the tourist can stay without Russo - the covid has not gone anywhere. Yes, and in Syria, he is slowly squeezed home. Only a completely stupid person will not understand a hint of fat circumstances. wassat
