In Turkije woedt al maanden een “burgeroorlog” van de Turkse regering tegen de Koerden. In verscheidene Koerdische steden werd een uitgaansverbod ingesteld dat weken en maanden bleef duren. Woonwijken werden beschoten, terwijl in de huizen de gewonden en de doden bleven liggen. Journalisten werden niet toegelaten, dit geweld tegen een etnische groepering kwam daarom nauwelijks in het nieuws. Het is een reporter van Russia Today gelukt om met een camera naar de verwoeste stad Cirze te gaan. Nu heeft Russia Today een petitie gestart om het geweld tegen de Koerden op de internationale politieke agenda te plaatsen. Bij deze een overzicht van de berichten:

    Turkish war crimes? Don’t be absurd – they’re in NATO!

    Cizre Kurds have accused Turkish forces of carrying out a civilian massacre. It is alleged that 150 people were burnt to death in a basement, and civilians were denied access to food and medical supplies.

    An RT film crew arrived recently in the ruined town. Amid the scenes of destruction, one woman witness accused Turkish forces of killing ‘three-four- maybe five hundred people’. There have also been disturbing claims that some of the victims were beheaded.

    RT has submitted its footage of Cizre to leading international human rights organizations and asked if full investigations will follow.

    Amnesty International, to their credit, has already criticized Turkey for human rights violations in its so-called ‘anti-terrorist’ operations in Kurdish areas.

    But despite the growing evidence of Turkish war crimes there’s next to no chance that Erdogan will have to answer in an international court for what his military has been doing. The sad truth is that Turkish forces could massacre thousands of civilians in the next few weeks and months and it would be the same. The reason is simple. Turkey is a NATO member – and NATO member states and their allies are the ‘good guys’; they don’t do war crimes. It’s only the leaders of countries that NATO doesn’t like who need to fear being given a one-way ticket to The Hague.

    The Kurds: Turkey-NATO Genocide?

    Using fear as a weapon, the current Turkey regime has leveled an inhumane campaign against Kurds in southeast Turkey since 2015. With the excuse militants of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) had run amok in the region, Turkish forces impose curfews and randomly kill innocent civilians in this region, all in the name of combating supposed insurgents. The facts speak for themselves however, what Erdogan’s government is doing to Kurds is a copycat Gaza operation. If I did not know better, I’d say the Turks are operating from an Tel Aviv genocide playbook. The Turkish General Staff claims some 1,000 plus Kurdish militants have been killed in operations in the region, but only dead civilians clog the cemeteries there now.

    Historically, the PKK has been fighting for independence in this region since 1984, seeking cultural and political self determination for Kurds in Turkey and northern Iraq. Several truces have taken place in between Ankara and the PKK leadership, but all have failed so far. A recent joint declaration by the PKK and nice other organizations has called for the overthrow of Erdogan’s government, and capitalism in general. Thus, NATO and the EU now consider the group terrorists, even though the United Nations does not. So given the “alignments” indicated, and the dying civilians all around, one has to wonder if NATO and key EU nations are not advocating the Turkish methods.
