Human rights activists report on mass violations of Turkish Kurdish rights to UN


“Evaluation of the situation in Cizre was carried out on 6-8 in March on March 2016, in the suburbs of Yafes, Cudi and Nuh. The delegation of independent experts included representatives of the Turkish Human Rights Association, the Turkish Human Rights Foundation, the Public Health and Social Workers Union, the Diyarbakir Association and the Agenda Association for Children, ”explains RIA News with reference to the document.

The report states that "not only houses, but also mosques and cemeteries were destroyed or burned in the suburbs of Cizre." According to experts, "the damage was caused mainly by shelling from mortars, grenade launchers, barrel bombs and bullets." City power lines are torn off.

“Residents were forced to leave their homes on the 25th day after the curfew was imposed in the city, as the Turkish Armed Forces continued to shell the city with heavy weapons and tanksand snipers shot off any moving target, ”eyewitness accounts are quoted in the document.

The security forces also “forced people to leave their homes under the threat of the destruction of buildings and the use of chemical weapons"They said.

In addition, witnesses said in the basements of several houses were carried out mass executions of residents. This happened after they tried "to demand through the media to stop the military operation." Later, the corpses were taken by the military in an unknown direction.

Independent experts concluded that "massacres were committed in the basements, while the investigation of the incident was not officially carried out, and obstacles were created to record the events."

“Due to the imposition of a curfew, communication with the outside world was cut off. Deaths that occurred in these areas should be investigated, and the need for murder explained. An effective and independent investigation should be conducted, and those responsible for them should be punished. Investigations of human rights violations, torture and political killings should be conducted transparently and with the participation of experts, ”the report says.

    It is unlikely that the "Civilized World" will impose sanctions against Turkey. At best, they will only "shake a finger."

      For some reason, the most interesting thing for Britain is the violation of human rights in Russia, but in Turkey it’s not straightforward.

    Great theme. Each of us can write a report on the topic of spreading Kurds in Turkey without taking our backs off the couch.

    Yeah, the whole "Western world" got emotional and ran to investigate. Erdogash is still an ally, why offend him? This hook will be left for the future. yes

    This is how the history for the Kurds returned as a boomerang, because 100 years ago, the Turks precisely the Kurds plowed for the genocide of Armenians, and indeed of Christians

      It seems to me to give them free rein now, so they will arrange genocide anywhere and anyone, they are Turks.

    Human rights defenders report submitted to UN

    A waste of effort and money. Until the United States deigns to condemn Turkey for specific crimes (and they still do not deign), no measures will be taken, and if necessary, the same United States or through other countries can always block the resolution on the document.
