The operation in Silopi is almost complete. All urban neighborhoods cleaned of militants. The city will have a curfew for some time, which will guarantee the safety of the civilian population of the city.
It should be recalled that in a number of south-eastern provinces of Turkey, security forces are conducting an operation against the Kurds. Official Ankara claims that this is an anti-terrorist operation, and it is aimed exclusively at representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which the Turkish authorities consider a terrorist organization.
The operation is also being carried out in the Diyarbakir settlement, near which the NATO military base is located. During the operation of the Turkish security forces, which lasted for several months, more than a hundred civilians were killed.
The Turkish General Staff has published data on the number of killed PKK representatives in three different cities of the country. According to these data, 337 "militants" were killed in the city of Cizre, in Sura - 102, in Silopi - 136. It should be noted that in Ankara, Kurdish children are often considered to be militants, who, together with their parents, went to rallies against the regular aggression of the Turkish security forces against the Kurdish population of the country.
