Against this background, Turkey announced that the Russian aviation "Bombed a maternity hospital in Azaz." Turkey, taking the technology of the US State Department as a basis, of course, does not cite any evidence.
At the same time, the Turkish police and military continue a military operation against the Kurdish population in the south-east of the country. In Cizre and Diyarbakir, in just the last week, at least 20 civilians, including children, became victims of Erdogan’s aggression.
One of the leaders of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) Murat Karailan in an interview RIA News says that Turkish actions are forcing the Kurds to move the fighting to cities with a predominantly Turkish population over time.
The Turkish state has moved to openly intimidate and oppress the Kurdish people. This is a declaration of war unilaterally, expressed in attacks on the Kurdish population. In the 21 century, Turkey conducts artillery shelling of cities, история which is several thousand years old, openly destroys the historical and cultural heritage of this region ... This is arbitrariness, a crime, cruel lawlessness, of which there are not too many examples on earth. At the moment we are discussing the issue of transferring military actions to cities (Turkey). Of course, for us the conduct of the urban war is a very risky step. The basis for the actions of the PKK has always been the countryside ... But the current conditions dictate the need for a change of tactics. As soon as the enemy attacks cease, and our people will gain freedom and independence, the need to use weapons will disappear.
