Le PYD dénigre le père de famille qui a été victime d'une journaliste hongroise

ʿAmudah: PYD slanders the refugee who was kicked and tripped by Hungarian journalist

KURDWATCH, September 25, 2015—On September 18, 2015, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) claimed on its website that former soccer coach ʿUsama ʿAbdulmuhsin is a member of the Islamist Jabhat an‑Nusrah. ʿAbdulmuhsin became publicly known after he was kicked and tripped by a Hungarian journalist as he tried to flee across the Hungarian‑Serbian border. The PYD also claims that from 2004 until 2010, ʿAbdulmuhsin was the coach of the al‑Futuwwa soccer team from Dayr az-Zaur and that as such, he was present at his team’s soccer game at al-Qamishli stadium on March 12, 2004. At this game, political differences between the fans of al‑Futuwwa and the fans of the al-Jihad team from al-Qamishli resulted in violent conflicts, which led to days of unrest. According to the PYD, ʿAbdulmuhsin incited violence at the stadium. Research done by KurdWatch suggests that these claims do not reflect the facts. Usama ʿAbdulmuhsin never coached al‑Futuwwa’s first-division team. The coach at that time was Ibrahim Yasin. Yasin resigned as coach after the events of 2004; he was followed by Hisham Khalaf, who was in turn replaced by Anwar ʿAbdulqadir in 2010. Usama ʿAbdulmuhsin only coached al‑Futuwwa’s youth team. Moreover, several eyewitnesses have told KurdWatch that the then president of al‑Futuwwa, Immad ʿAtala, was in the stadium and attempted to calm fans. According to another eyewitness who was a sports reporter at the stadium in 2004, neither the players nor the coach of al‑Futuwwa were involved in the conflicts. They were far more concerned with preventing conflict so that they could play the game.

The PYD’s claim that people were killed inside the stadium is also false. KurdWatch’s report on the events of 2004 [download report] indicates that all of the deaths occurred outside of the stadium. A total of thirty-two victims of the days of conflict with Syrian security forces have been named—not, as the PYD claims, more than fifty.

Alep : les YPG coupent une ligne d'approvisionnement des rebelles

YPG cuts rebel lifeline to Aleppo city

Kurdish People’s Defense Units (YPG) units pushed rebels out of the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood on Sunday, effectively cutting the main rebel supply line into Aleppo city, reported opposition news sources Sunday.

The YPG began firing on vehicles travelling along the Castello road from positions in Sheikh Maqsoud captured from rebels, reported Aksalser.

The attacks killed three civilians and cut the final rebel lifeline from the northern countryside into opposition-controlled east Aleppo, reported opposition Shahba Press.

Rebel-Kurd fighting in Sheikh Maqsoud may have begun because of Kurdish plans to open up a crossing from the neighborhood into regime-controlled territory, a local journalist told Syria Direct.

“The Kurds wanted to open up a crossing with the regime in the neighborhood to benefit from trade…which the rebels refused,”
Abu Hamza, who works in Aleppo, said on Monday."

Province de Batman : un civil et un policier tués par une attaque du PKK

Turkish policeman, civilian killed in PKK terror attack

Turkish media reports outlawed PKK detonates IED on highway near southeastern province of Batman killing one police officer, one civilian also wounding three officers along with four civilians

Sep 29, 2015 18:31 GMT

Turkish media has reported that the outlawed PKK on Tuesday detonated an improvised explosive device (IED) on the highway joining the southeastern province of Batman with its district of Kozluk, killing one police officer and one civilian. The attack has also wounded three police officers along with four civilians.

An armoured police vehicle was targeted by the outlawed PKK militants when it reached the Samanyolu village, on the road between Batman and Kozluk, according to Turkish Anadolu Agency. The terror attack has killed Hamidullah Aydin who was driving a pickup truck and injured civilians who were traveling in a minibus.

Media accounts stated that the wounded were brought to the hospitals located in the Batman province for immediate treatment following the attack and Turkish security forces have launched an extensive operation to capture the militants in the region where the outlawed PKK detonated the IED.

IED is a homemade bomb or a destructive device, widely used by the outlawed PKK militants in terror attacks throughout eastern and southeastern Turkey.

The highway, which is one of the main roads in the southeastern and eastern regions of Turkey has been closed to traffic following the incident, the media also reported.

Turkey has recently been targeted with increasing terror attacks by ISIS and PKK militant groups in its southeastern and eastern regions, since a suicide bombing, widely thought to have been carried out by ISIS, in the Suruc district of the Sanliurfa province claimed 34 lives on July 20.

The outlawed PKK has particularly increased its attacks on both police and the Turkish Armed Forces following the Suruc suicide bombing. More than 120 Turkish security officials have been killed in terror attacks by the PKK and ISIS since the bombing. 

Both PKK and ISIS are recognised as terrorist organisations by Turkey, the US, EU, and NATO.

Deux fillettes ont été tuées et quatre personnes blessées dimanche dans le sud-est de la Turquie dans des tirs de rebelles kurdes contre la police qui ont manqué leur cible et atteint une habitation,
a-t-on appris de sources policières.

Des combattants du Parti des travailleurs du Kurdistan (PKK) ont tiré des obus de mortier sur un véhicule de la police dans le district de Bismil, dans la province de Diyarbakir, ont précisé ces sources à l'AFP. Mais ils ont manqué leur cible et atteint un immeuble de trois étages, tuant deux fillettes âgées de 9 et 12 ans.

Depuis juillet, des affontements meurtriers opposent forces de sécurité turques et rebelles kurdes. L'armée turque a mené une offensive contre les bastions du PKK dans le sud-est de la Turquie et dans le nord de l'Irak, et l'organisation rebelle a riposté par des attaques contre les forces de sécurité.
Dimanche, l'armée a annoncé que ses avions avaient pilonné des bases du PKK dans la région de Metina dans le nord de l'Irak.

PKK terrorists kill ambulance driver in southeastern Turkey
DAILY SABAH
ISTANBUL
Published September 25, 2015

Turkey's Minister of Health Mehmet Müezzinoğlu stated on Friday that a group of PKK terrorists kidnapped an ambulance driver who was on his way to collect wounded security personnel following a terror attack in Beytüşşebap district of southeastern Şırnak province.


Speaking at an Eid event organized by AK Party's Bursa branch, Müezzinoğlu said that the driver was kidnapped by PKK terrorists before he was killed. "Terror has ruined our Eid. We have two martyrs today, and 11 of our personnel were wounded by terrorists. We still cannot reach our health personnel who were on the way to the scene to collect our wounded security forces," he said.

While the minister was giving the speech, he was informed that the ambulance driver was killed by PKK terrorists following the kidnap. Upon hearing the news, "The nation will never forget the crimes committed by the PKK, and will make the terrorists pay for them," the minister added.

The Turkish government has intensified its counterterror operations following the recent attacks carried out by the PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by the U.S., the EU and Turkey.

Formed in 1978, the terrorist group which also aims civilians in its attacks had been fighting the Turkish government for an independent state until the early 2000's. The group then shifted its goal to autonomy in predominately Kurdish inhabited regions of Turkey.

Le leader religieux du groupe islamiste Ahrar al-Sham est un Kurde syrien : Abu Mohammed al-Sadeq




"Ahrar al-Sham’s broader internal political evolution and outreach to the West, however, had upset some of its leaders. Although its editorials reflected four months of internal deliberation, Ahrar al-Sham’s religious leadership—headed by a Kurd, Abu Mohammed al-Sadeq—opposed some aspects of the group’s overt alignment with nationalist projects. A debate ensued between leaders during a series of meetings in northern Syria and southern Turkey in mid-August. According to several sources involved in the discussions, the leaders discussed the possibility of replacing the group’s “first row” of leaders with “more highly qualified and experienced” (in other words more moderate) figures, in line with the end of Hashem al-Sheikh’s 12-month term as leader on September 10, 2015.[48]"

Syrian Kurd offensive against Islamic State has stalled

By Mitchell Prothero and Jonathan S. Landay

McClatchy Foreign Staff

SURUC, Turkey

A Syrian Kurdish offensive described last week by U.S. officials as the most effective assault to date on the Islamic State has ground to a virtual halt because of Turkey’s opposition to the advance and Kurdish commanders’ reluctance to extend their frontlines beyond Kurdish areas, Syrian Kurdish and Arab militants say.

The stalling of the offensive, which was aided by U.S. airstrikes that were coordinated with Syrian Kurdish fighters on the ground, deals a new setback to the Obama administration’s efforts to build an anti-Islamic State coalition among Syrian opposition forces, and it comes amidst a buildup of Russian jet fighters, armored vehicles and personnel near Syria’s coast.

“The Kurdish forces are important because they are America’s boots on the ground in Syria and Iraq,” said Soner Cagaptay, an expert with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a think tank.

The slackening in the drive by the Peoples Protection Units, a Syrian Kurdish militia known as the YPG, can be traced through the dramatic drop in the rate of U.S. airstrikes launched against the Islamic State in areas inside and adjacent to the swath of territory along the border with Turkey from which the brutal Islamist movement was expelled by the YPG offensive.

According to releases issued by U.S. Central Command, U.S. aircraft launched 108 strikes in those areas in July, compared to 60 in August and only 35 so far this month. The CENTCOM releases on U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq aren’t published on a daily basis, so there are days for which the numbers of U.S. missions aren’t known. But the trend is clear from the data available.

A CENTCOM spokesman acknowledged that the YPG drive had slowed, but indicated that it could start up again.

“We don’t have any indication that they’re done fighting,” said the spokesman ,Air Force Lt. Col. Patrick Ryder. “We can’t talk at this point about when we’d expect to see any significant movement in the future.”

“From an operational standpoint, there are certain things in terms of planning and refitting and solidifying a defensive zone that are taken into account,” he said. “We are continuing to work with these forces.”

U.S. airstrikes are being staged, meanwhile, in support of moderate Syrian Arab rebel groups that are fighting the Islamic State on the western edge of the border strip held by the extremist group, he said.

“There is significant engagement going on right now,” he said. “The situation is very fluid.”

Activists aligned with the YPG said in interviews that the lull in American bombing has allowed the Islamic State to bring in reinforcements and that they’ve lost the critically important momentum that had the militia on the verge of driving the Islamic State from Jarabulus, the main urban center of the Syria-Turkey border strip still held by the Islamist group.

Mustafa Abdi, a Kurdish activist and journalist with close ties to the YPG, said that the Kurds had intended to link the areas they control – the northeastern Jazera and Kobani enclaves with the north central Afrin canton – into a contiguous Kurdish-controlled security zone that effectively would span most of Syria’s 560-mile border with Turkey.

But Turkey, which recently has seen a re-ignition of a decades-old insurgency by separatists of its own Kurdish minority, objected to the plan and threatened to intervene militarily if the YPG moved to capture Jarabulus, a mixed Arab and Turkmen city, because of fears that the Kurds could declare a state on the territory.

“The advance stalled after the Turkish government announced it would intervene on the ground if there was further advancement,” Abdi said.

Local fighters said that the Syrian Kurds also hesitated to carry their offensive into predominantly Arab areas, a reluctance that would undermine U.S. hopes that a Kurdish-led force would spearhead an assault on Raqqa, the Syrian city that is the de facto capital of the Islamic State.

“We could take Raqqa with the YPG’s help,” said Abu Sharja, an Arab who is a commander with a moderate Syrian rebel group called the Raqqa Revolutionaries. “But the Kurds have no interest in Raqqa. They only want to connect the Kurdish areas under their control to form a state.”

Adbi disagreed that the YPG was not interested in moving on Raqqa. But, he said, the group was waiting for a final agreement between Turkey, the United States and moderate Syrian Arab and Turkmen rebel groups before they proceeded.

The YPG leadership has frequently expressed a willingness to support a broader operation against Raqqa if a significant number of other Syrian rebel groups participated. But it appeared to balk at suggestions that the Kurds should proceed alone.

“There is an underlying ethnic conflict here,” said Cagaptay of the Washington Institute. “Raqqa being an Arab city and having been liberated by the YPG would be seen by the locals as being occupied by Kurds.”

A security official in the autonomous Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq, which maintains links with Kurdish forces in Syria and last year sent fighters to assist in the defense of Kobani, a Kurdish town on the Turkish border, said that Turkey’s objection to a Kurdish advance and the YPG’s resistence to entering Arab-dominated territory contributed to the stalling out of the Kurdish offensive.

“The Kurds of Iraq and Syria are the only effective force in either country fighting [the Islamic State] but that’s because we are defending our land and homes and people,” said the official, who asked to remain anonymous because he’s not authorized to comment on military operations publicly.

“The Arabs in both countries want our help to defeat Daash but we see this as an Arab problem,” the official said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. “We cannot ask our people who have already seen thousands of Kurds die fighting to accept more casualties for an offensive in Raqqa or (the northern Iraqi city of) Mosul when these are primarily Arab areas.”

“The Kurds will participate in a large coalition in both Iraq and Syria,” he added. “But you cannot ask us to win this war alone.”

What is clear is that the offensive that U.S. officials have characterized as the biggest success of the anti-Islamic State campaign so far has cooled at a serious juncture in the Obama administration’s approach to Syria.

The stall-out has come at the same time as the collapse of a $500 million Pentagon program to train and equip 5,000 moderate Syrian rebels to fight the Islamic State, with only about 75 fighters operating inside Syria.

Russia, meanwhile, has deployed at least 24 jet fighters, advanced armored vehicles, some 200 marines, and pre-fabricated housing for some 1,500 people at an airbase near the port city of Latakia. Moscow says the deployment is intended to battle the Islamic State, but U.S. officials believe its primary purpose is to save Syria’s embattled president, Bashar Assad.

The U.S. alliance with the YPG was born during the U.S. air campaign last year against Islamic State forces pushing to capture Kobani. The campaign lasted nearly four months, ending in January with Islamic State’s defeat, and saw U.S. airstrikes carefully coordinated with Syrian Kurdish forces.

In the months afterward, the United States continued its coordination with the Kurds, pushing back Islamic State forces throughout northern Syria. U.S. officials provided the YPG with the ability to call in air strikes, communicating directly with a U.S.-run command center in Irbil, Iraq.

Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, the head of the U.S. Central Command, which oversees U.S. anti-Islamic State operations, told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that the YPG, in coordination with some smaller Arab and Turkmen fighting groups, had captured 6,500 square miles in recent months from the Islamic State – an area slightly smaller than New Jersey.

YPG forces also took control of all but about 68 miles of the 560-mile long stretch of border with Turkey that previously had been under Islamic State control, Austin said.

A number of senators complained to Austin about a lack of support for Kurdish groups in Syria. But it appears that Turkey has drawn a diplomatic and military line at Kurdish intervention along this stretch of border to prevent the Kurds from linking the three areas they control. Such a development would give the Kurds near complete control over the border, and Turkish officials feared would allow them to declare a Kurdish state amid the ruins of the Syrian civil war.

It was the YPG’s capture in June of Tal Abyad, a border town, which had been a key Islamic State-controlled crossing with Turkey, that alarmed the Turks.

In the days after the YPG and other Syrian rebel groups took Tal Abyad, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced the Kurdish advance and warned that Turkey would take military action if the YPG advanced on either Jarabulus or Azzaz, effectively ending the western direction of the offensive. Turkish troops also fired a series of artillery warning shots to deliver a message to the Kurdish militia as it advanced on the town.

“We were ready to go in with an FSA unit composed of Turkmen and Arabs to liberate the city. But we also recognize that the Turks are very concerned about the formation of a Kurdish state in Syria and we made the decision not to confront the Turks directly,” said Abdi, the Kurdish activist and journalist with close ties to the YPG.

Ankara was expected to be an aggressive partner in the U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State under an agreement in which it allowed the United States to launch bombing missions from Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey. Turkey, however, launched fewer than 10 airstrikes against the Islamic State after the accord was reached in late July.

The Turkish air force, however, has conducted scores of missions against camps of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which maintains close links with the YPG. The attacks made clear that a three-year-old cease-fire with the group. More than 100 Turkish security personnel and hundreds of PKK fighters have died in fighting since.

The cease-fire collapsed in July after a suicide bombing in Suruc, Turkey, targeted a gathering of leftist Kudish activists, killing more than 30 people. The PKK condemned the attack and accused the Turkish government of facilitating the Islamic State’s presence along the border with Syria. The day after the bombing, gunmen aligned with the PKK assassinated two Turkish policemen, sparking a wave of violence by both sides that has served to further complicate the Obama administration’s anti-Islamic State efforts.

PKK terrorists target civilians, kill father and injure son in Mardin province
DAILY SABAH

Published September 23, 2015

A civilian and a soldier have been killed and another has been injured on Wednesday by a group of PKK terrorists, who carried out attacks in southeastern Mardin and Diyarbakır provinces.

According to reports, PKK terrorists attacked Mahmut Kanat's house –located in Mardin's Ovabaşı district- with long-barreled weapons and shot Kanat and his son.


Both victims were brought to Ömerli Hospital, but Mahmut Kanat succumbed to his injuries.

Security forces have launched an operation to arrest the terrorists who fled the scene of the incident.

Sergeant Mehmet Ali Sarak, 25, came under fire from PKK terrorists with automatic rifles while on his way to his army base in the Silvan district of Diyarbakır.

According to reports, Sarak, who was in civilian clothing when he was shot, died instantly, and a security operation was then launched to track down the assailants.


PKK terrorists have also attacked the Hizan District Gendarmerie Command in Bitlis, as well as court houses and police residences in Tunceli and Elazığ provinces.

Separately Turkish war planes on Wednesday carried out a new barrage of cross-border airstrikes against Kurdish terrorists in northern Iraq, destroying munitions depots and caves used by the PKK, the army said.

The Turkish government has intensified its counterterror operations following the recent attacks carried out by the PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by the U.S., the EU and Turkey.

Formed in 1978, the terrorist group has been fighting the Turkish government for an independent state until the early 2000's. The group then shifted its goal to autonomy in predominately Kurdish inhabited regions of Turkey.

The PKK announced on July 11 that the cease-fire which was declared via a message from the PKK's imprisoned leader Abdullah Öcalan in 2013 has ended.

Turkish security forces have arrested hundreds of people with suspected links to ISIS, the PKK, and leftist groups, detaining over 1,300 people across the country, according to a recent statement released by the Prime Minister's Office.

The Turkish Air Force has been carrying airstrikes against the PKK in northern Iraq and the ISIS terrorists in northern Syria.

According to military sources, 261 terrorists were killed in Turkey's airstrikes against PKK's hideouts and camps in northern Iraq.

In an interview with his party’s media, Muslim said the return of Peshmerga forces to Syrian Kurdistan to fight Islamic State (IS) and the Syrian regime “will cause violence and destruction”.

“The Rojava Peshmerga only belong to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and some of them are former Syrian soldiers who were trained in Başûrê [Iraqi Kurdistan] and receive salaries,” added Muslim.

He also accused the Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga of “only fighting for money”.

“Without salaries they [Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga] won’t fight. They don’t have any connection to Rojava and they are only KDP Peshmerga,” said the PYD leader.

He rejected reports that the PYD would let Peshmerga forces in to Syrian Kurdistan.


“There is no possibility the Peshmerga will be allowed in Rojava, as Turkey wants them here,” claimed Muslim.

Muslim says the Peshmerga could only fight in Rojava if there were an agreement with the PYD and its military wing, the People’s Protection Units (PYD).

However, Muslim said they want a stronger relationship with Kurdish parties in Iraqi Kurdistan and admitted that they receive aid from the KRG.

The latest statement from the PYD leader comes after last week’s meeting between Muslim and KRG President Masoud Barzani and US officials in Erbil. After the meeting KDP officials said all three sides had agreed that Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga forces should return to Rojava.

ERBIL – The Kurdistan Democratic Party in Syria (KDP-S) has revealed that during a meeting with KRG President Masoud Barzani in Erbil on Saturday, they discussed plans for a possible return of Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga forces to Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava).


Sa’ed Omar, a member of the KDP-S leadership group that met Barzani, told BasNews that the meeting covered the current situation in Syrian Kurdistan, the thousands of Kurdish youths fleeing Syrian Kurdistan for Europe and the policies of the main Kurdish party in Rojava, the Democratic Union Party (PYD).

“We talked about the possible return of the Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga to Rojava and Barzani reiterated his support for both the Kurdistan National Council and KDP-S,”
added Omar.

“Barzani is very concerned about the thousands of Kurdish youths leaving Rojava and the situation in Syrian Kurdistan,”
added Omar.

The KDP-S leader believes that Syria will be divided in the future, which is why the Kurds must be able to rely on American support.

He said that they informed Barzani that America must support the plan for Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga to return to Rojava to join other Kurdish forces in the war against Islamic State.

The KDP-S delegation was headed by Sa’ud Mullah, the secretary general of the KDP-S and other senior group officials.

Après de lourdes pertes en Irak, le PKK veut se distancier de sa branche urbaine du YDG-H

PKK tries to distance itself with YDG-H after receiving heavy blow in Turkish airstrikes
DAILY SABAH WITH ANADOLU AGENCY
ISTANBUL
Published September 19, 2015

As Turkish Armed Forces announced Saturday that more than 90 terrorists were killed in two separate airstrikes conducted against PKK terrorists and targets, Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency claimed that PKK leader Murat Karayılan, admitting the damage inflicted on terrorist organization, is trying to distance the PKK with its urban youth offshoot, YDG-H.


Security forces claimed to have intercepted a note containing evaluations and instructions issued by PKK leader Murat Karayılan, in which he reportedly said terrorists belonging to the Patriotic Revolutionary Youth Movement, or YDG-H, have been defeated, adding that militants should stop saying that YDG-H is related to PKK. YDG-H largely operates in urban areas and conducts armed attacks at the expense of civilians.

"We cannot take shelter in Qandil [PKK's headquarter in northern Iraq]. We tried to manage things with 600-700 militants. Our logistics and ammunition are next to nothing. There are traitors among us; that's why Turkish warplanes destroyed well-protected shelters and depots. We lost too many people. We need to recall our forces in Syria. We do not have qualified militants. We lost too many people in Tunceli [an eastern province]. It is impossible to compensate," Karayılan allegedly said in the memo.

On Saturday, 30 to 35 terrorists were killed in Turkey's eastern province of Tunceli in the airstrike conducted by two F-16 jets along with helicopters and special forces encircling the area. The airstrike was part of the operation launched in the region following a PKK attack that killed a police officer on September 10.

Turkish F-16 and F-4 jets targeted PKK in its Haftanin camp located in Northern Iraq on September 15, killing 55 to 60 terrorists and destroying caves, shelters and storage areas.


Initial reports compiled through records of radio traffic, informants in the region and aerial photos showed that at least 55 terrorists were killed.

Turkey's official Anadolu Agency reported that as Iraqi border police do not allow the PKK to transfer wounded militants and corpses by road, they try to carry away bodies by mountain routes.


Sources claimed that since PKK terrorists do not get help from people in the region and Iraqi police, they had to bury corpses in a mass grave.

Security sources claimed PKK efforts to trigger an uprising in Yüksekova district of Hakkari province, Cizre district of Şırnak province and Sur district of Diyarbakır province, all located in Turkey's southeast, had failed, noting local population stood by the government.

Following a suicide bomb attack in July blamed on ISIS in the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa that killed over 30 people, the terrorist PKK organization has renewed armed attacks especially targeting Turkish military and police forces.

Since July, more than 100 members of the security forces have been killed and hundreds of PKK terrorists killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq, including airstrikes.

Pourquoi le PKK perdra aussi cette manche

Il est temps que les sages de la branche politique du PKK comprennent les répercussions désastreuses de la reprise de la guerre avec la Turquie


Le Parti des travailleurs du Kurdistan (PKK) a relancé sa campagne armée contre l'État turc, ou, pour être plus précis, a repris cette guerre qui n'a été interrompue que brièvement. Depuis que le PKK a tué quatre membres des forces de sécurité turques dans la ville de Suruç en juillet dernier, il est apparu que le PKK n'avait jamais cessé de se préparer à une reprise de sa campagne au cours des trois dernières années du processus de paix.

Alors que l'État réalisait des progrès importants et sans précédent en vue de résoudre le problème kurde et d'instaurer la paix dans le sud et le sud-est du pays, le PKK entreposait des armes dans diverses zones du pays. Il organisait également de nouveaux groupes pour les déployer dans différentes villes kurdes, et posait même des explosifs sur des cibles potentielles en vue d'une nouvelle manche de la guerre. Pourtant, il est très probable que le PKK, qui a perdu auparavant plusieurs manches de sa guerre sanglante et futile, perde également celle-ci.

Le processus de paix, qui a été soutenu par le leader historique du PKK, Abdullah Öcalan, et dans lequel le parti s'est engagé directement et indirectement, a été initié sur la base de l'hypothèse que le PKK cesserait toute activité armée, retirerait ses forces de Turquie ou les pousserait à se livrer à la justice, et se lancerait progressivement dans un processus de démantèlement. En échange, il a été convenu que le gouvernement engage des mesures législatives et politiques visant à libérer l'État turc des pratiques nationalistes discriminatoires, à reconnaître les droits culturels des Kurdes et à fournir les efforts nécessaires afin de développer les régions à majorité kurde du sud et du sud-est après plusieurs décennies de négligence.

Depuis 2012, le gouvernement AKP a rempli ses promesses dans une large mesure, tandis que le PKK a engagé un processus de tromperie stratégique. Il semblerait que les dirigeants de la branche militaire du parti aient imaginé que les résultats indécis des élections turques du mois de juin constituaient pour eux une occasion de faire chanter l'État turc. L'autre raison possible de la décision prise par le parti de reprendre sa guerre pourrait être la tension entre la branche armée et la branche politique du mouvement. Après le succès électoral majeur du Parti démocratique des peuples (HDP), la branche armée pourrait avoir commencé à craindre de se faire couper l'herbe sous le pied.

En tout cas, le PKK n'a pas seulement repris la guerre : il l'a fait dans un esprit de vengeance et avec une violence extrême. En réponse aux violences déclenchées par le PKK, l'État turc a lancé une série de raids aériens dévastateurs contre les bases du parti dans la montagne de Qandil et a arrêté des centaines de ses partisans à travers le pays. L'État a également pris des mesures rapides contre tous les chefs de conseils municipaux qui ont tenté de faire sécession de l'État central.

Rien n'indique un déclin dans la volonté et la détermination de l'État à mener cette bataille jusqu'au bout, malgré les dizaines de victimes parmi les forces de sécurité et les forces armées. Toutefois, les mesures militaires et de sécurité prises par Ankara ne sont en aucun cas le principal facteur déterminant l'issue de cette série d'affrontements entre le PKK et l'État turc.

Contrairement aux autres pays du Moyen-Orient dont la communauté kurde est relativement importante, tels que l'Irak, la Syrie et l'Iran, il n'est plus possible de parler d'une patrie exclusivement kurde en Turquie. Indéniablement, il existe des régions et des villes à majorité kurde, en particulier dans l'est et dans le sud-est. Mais les Kurdes vivent aussi en grand nombre dans les villes d'Anatolie centrale et occidentale, ainsi qu'à Ankara et à Istanbul. En fait, la population kurde la plus importante vit à Istanbul, pas à Diyarbakır.

Cette présence kurde aux quatre coins du pays n'est ni nouvelle ni accidentelle, mais profondément enracinée. En raison de la nature complexe et contradictoire du système républicain discriminatoire à l'encontre des Kurdes, les Arabes et les Circassiens, ainsi que d'autres minorités ethniques, des millions de Kurdes vivant en dehors des zones à majorité kurde se sont pleinement intégrés dans le milieu culturel et économique de leur nouvelle patrie.

Des figures politiques kurdes occupent des positions influentes au sein de la structure du gouvernement et de diverses institutions gouvernementales, sans être pour autant contraintes de nier ou de désavouer leurs origines. Au cours des dernières décennies, un grand nombre de Kurdes ont accédé à la notoriété en tant que ministres, militants et dirigeants de parti, que ce soit dans des partis de tendance islamiste ou même au sein du Parti républicain du peuple, dont le leader actuel est un Kurde alaouite. Même l'ancien Premier ministre et président de la République Turgut Özal avait des racines kurdes.

En ce sens, on ne peut pas affirmer que le PKK représente la majorité des Kurdes de Turquie. Malgré le succès spectaculaire et inattendu obtenu par le HDP lors des dernières élections, la moitié voire plus des suffrages kurdes sont toujours en faveur de partis non nationalistes, principalement pour l'AKP, mais aussi en faveur d'autres partis islamiques plus petits et des laïcs du Parti républicain du peuple.

D'autre part, il ne fait aucun doute que la longue décennie de règne de l'AKP a contribué à réduire les sentiments nationalistes et fascistes radicaux en Turquie, et à renforcer un climat plus consensuel et pluraliste. Pourtant, cela ne signifie pas que le nationalisme turc soit mort ou qu'il ait perdu tout pouvoir. Si la reprise des armes a pour objectif de mettre à l’épreuve la détermination des nationalistes turcs, il est certain que le PKK sera confronté à une réaction nationaliste pas moins féroce que les violences qu'il a déchaînées. De par sa relation étroite avec la naissance et le développement de l'État républicain, le nationalisme turc est considéré comme l'une des entités nationalistes les plus féroces et les plus réactionnaires du Moyen-Orient.

Ces dernières semaines du mois de septembre, lors desquelles le nombre de victimes a crû au sein des forces de sécurité et militaires turques, peuvent être un signe de l'impact de cette guerre sur les sentiments nationalistes turcs. Des rassemblements massifs ont eu lieu dans plusieurs villes, dont un certain nombre ont été le théâtre de violences et d'attaques contre des propriétés kurdes. Bien que les dirigeants politiques turcs aient agi rapidement dans le but de contenir et mettre fin à ces violences, il apparaît de plus en plus clairement que la propagation de la violence sociale ne favorisera pas la stabilité en Turquie et ne sera pas non plus à l'avantage du PKK.

En outre, personne dans la communauté internationale ne semble disposé à soutenir la quête sécessionniste du PKK en Turquie. L'expérience kurde en Irak a montré très clairement qu'un tel appui est une condition essentielle pour la réussite de tout projet visant à créer une entité politique kurde.

La Turquie subit actuellement un revers grave et douloureux dans sa tentative historique de résolution pacifique et pluraliste du problème kurde. Ce revers coûtera sans aucun doute très cher à la Turquie dans son ensemble, et à la région à majorité kurde en particulier. Le PKK doit être tenu pour responsable de ce revers. Il est peut-être temps que les sages de la branche politique du PKK comprennent les répercussions désastreuses de la reprise de la guerre et exercent les pressions nécessaires sur le leadership du parti afin que celui-ci mette fin à sa campagne armée. La violence ne servira certainement pas les intérêts du peuple kurde, ni, bien sûr, les intérêts de la Turquie.

NAQADEH – The Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) Peshmerga have carried out new propaganda operations in Iranian Kurdistan, the party’s official websites reported.

Overnight on Monday 21st September, a number of KDPI Peshmerga entered Gargul village near Naqadeh in the north west of Iran, and addressed residents from the speakers of a mosque.

BasNews has learned that a senior official from the leadership of the KDPI commanded a Peshmerga unit to deliver the message.

According to the KDPI official website, the Peshmerga promised residents that the KDPI will have a stronger presence in Kurdish areas of Iran, to establish a closer relationship between the party and the people.

The Iranian Kurdish Peshmerga visited Oshnavieh in the same province last week and played the Kurdish anthem from a mosque in the city.

ERBIL – Kurdistan Region Parliament has proposed draft law to ban pornographic websites in Kurdistan Region.

Members of the Kurdistan Region parliament have put forward a draft law blocking pornographic websites in the Region.

MP Bahzad Darwesh from the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) revealed that 27 MPs signed a draft law on September 20th, proposing the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) block access to online porn.

Darwesh claimed that the draft law has been made to save customs, traditions and social values.

He pointed out that along with MPs from Islamic parties, other members of parliament have signed the bill.

The KIU bloc in the Kurdistan Region parliament has previously presented a draft law suggesting the KRG oversee and monitor internet users and their access to different content.

The Iraqi parliament recently voted to restrict access to internet pornography in the country, but the newly-ratified law is not enforceable until the Kurdistan Region parliament votes in favor of the bill.

Şanlıurfa : 4 terroristes présumés du PKK ont été interceptés par la police alors qu'ils posaient une bombe dans un parc où le HDP allait se rassembler

PKK suspects caught planting bomb in park where HDP was to hold rally

Four suspected PKK terrorists were caught planting a bomb in a park where the HDP was going to hold a rally a day later, which sparked controversy as a similar bomb attack on an HDP rally before the June 7 elections saw HDP votes rising dramatically


Four suspected PKK terrorists were caught on Monday while planting a bomb in a park in the Viranşehir district of Şanlıurfa province where the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) was going to hold a public rally the following day. The incident, especially when Turkey is nearing the early elections in a tense environment, bears a resemblance to the attack during HDP's Diyarbakır rally before the June 7 elections, which positively affected the HDP votes.

Police patrolling the area noticed the suspects and quickly reacted. They detained three at the scene and tracked down the other suspect and detained him in his house. In addition, the police suspect that the same suspects had carried out an attack in the district on an armored police vehicle a couple days earlier. Further measures in the area were taken to prevent further attacks.

The failed attempt sparked controversy as the country nears the snap elections on Nov. 1, given that the bomb attack on an HDP rally in Diyarbakır province just two days before the June 7 elections turned out quite well for the party.


Speaking to Daily Sabah about the failed attempt and alleged link between the two incidents, Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Mardin deputy and renowned Kurdish writer, Orhan Miroğlu, said that security forces should watch out for possible attacks to create victimization for the HDP, and added: "We cannot claim that HDP members have a hand in these attacks and attempts, but such incidents create an advantage for the party."

Miroğlu also advised people against provocative attacks that might be carried out and said: "Kurds vote for the HDP as a result of these attacks without questioning who the perpetrators are and what motives they secretly have. I hope this never becomes reality, yet as we approach the snap elections we can see bombs exploding and attacks being planned on Kurdish politicians."

When asked about the main objective behind such attacks, Miroğlu said: "They want to create instability and disorder in the country." He also said that those who want to entangle the country seem to want a strong PKK by making up victimization and strengthening the HDP.

Also speaking to Daily Sabah about the issue, Kurdish intellectual and author Vahdettin İnce questioned to which direction votes shift when such attacks take place, and said: "We can call this failed attempt and the bombing before the June 7 elections a coincidence and not directly blame the HDP for it. However, even though the party itself does not plan it, it definitely serves the HDP."

Claiming that the HDP has lost support over the course of the period since the end of the cease-fire, İnce mused that attacks might take place in order to bolster the image of the party. He also criticized the ongoing public perception management carried out by the PKK and said: "Killing people, whether children or women, is immoral, vicious and not brave. Kurds and Turks do not benefit from it. One who claims to be caring about Kurds would not dare to hurt them."

İnce called on people to realize the truth and said: "The matter is completely different. They want to prevent a new and greater Turkey from realizing its goals. Turkey is enclosed by enemies from all quarters. I call on the people to see the bigger picture."

HASAKAH – The General Command of the Asayish forces in Kurdish areas of Syria have imposed a curfew in Hasakah, after Islamic State (IS) targeted the city in bomb attacks.

Dozens of civilians were killed in IS attacks against Kurdish forces on September 14th/15th. IS was defeated by the People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Hasakah city last summer.

As a result Kurdish police implemented a curfew in the city between September 18th and 28th from 9pm until 5am. The use of trucks and cars is not permitted between these hours, apart from security vehicles.

Moreover, all shops, internet cafes and restaurants will be closed in the city apart from pharmacies, hospitals and bakeries.


The Asayish has banned the use of motorcycles fearing they can be used by IS militants in suicide operations.


The Asayish has also declared that trucks require permission from the Asayish and the Transport Authority in the democratic self-administration controlled by the Democratic Union Party (PYD).

“We call upon all brothers to cooperate with us to facilitate these tasks entrusted to us to ensure the safety and security of our citizens,” the Asayish stated.

QAMISHLI – The administration of Cizire Canton in Syrian Kurdistan has decided to confiscate the property and belongings of those who have fled the area in fear of war and headed to safety in Europe.

The legislative council of Cizire Canton ratified a law enabling the autonomous administration to seize every property, including houses, farms, industrial factories, vehicles and etc… which are left behind by those who have escaped to safer areas and gone in Turkey in aim of reaching safety in Europe.

The Cizire Canton is now able to put the properties at the service of its administration.

The legislative council claimed in a statement that the decision is to protect peoples’ properties.

Due to the security reasons, thousands of Syrian Kurds have escaped to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq or migrated to other countries and left all the properties and belongings.

PYD to confiscate abandoned property in Al-Hasakah

The semi-autonomous Kurdish Democratic Party (PYD) government in Al-Hasakah province issued a decree on Tuesday authorizing the confiscation of property belonging to residents who have left the province.

“The confiscated property will not be returned, unless the self-administration issues a specific decision stipulating it,”
Jad al-Hasakawi, an Arab member of the Youth Union of Al-Hasakah, told Syria Direct on Wednesday.

“I don’t think this is likely” added al-Hasakawi, noting that the decision will have a wide impact, as he estimated that “30 percent” of Al-Hasakah has left the province because of fighting with the Islamic State.

The PYD will use the confiscated property to house fighters with its armed wing, the YPG,
said al-Hasakawi.

A Hasakah journalist defended the decree, saying the PYD is looking after the community.

The decision aims to “protect the possessions of residents who have left from vandalism and theft, and to repurpose them in service of the community,” Zara Masto, the president of the Kurdish Walati News Network, told Syria Direct on Wednesday.

Misto said she is is confident that all property will be returned in the case of a resident’s return."

KOBANI – The administration of Syrian Kurdistan, also known as Rojava, has declared that there are no plans to allow Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga forces to return and join other Kurdish fighters.

The coordination office of Syrian Kurdistan cantons said in a statement that the People’s Protection Units (YPG), Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) and other Kurdish forces are able to effectively protect Syrian Kurdistan against Islamic State (IS).

“Syrian Kurdistan does not need any other security forces,” reads the statement.


Head of Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) foreign relations Hemn Hawrami declared on Wednesday 16th September that Kurdish leaders have agreed that the Syrian Kurdish Peshmerga which has been trained by the Kurdistan Regional government (KRG), can return.

Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani discussed the issue with the Democratic Union Party (PYD) Leader Salih Muslim on Tuesday 15th September. US officials also attended the meeting between Barzani and Muslim.
