DUHOK, Kurdistan Region -- Two injured citizens carried to hospital in the aftermath of Turkish artillery bombardment of Amediye region in Duhok province last night.

Two villagers from Koker village in Duhok’s Berwari region were injured with Turkish artillery shells, said Rudaw’s reporter. One of the victims was 12 years old, and was carried to the State Hospital of Duhok.

The second victim lost his leg in the strikes and was taken into operation room.

Hakurk Mountain near Sidekan town of Duhok was bombarded three times from air and the ground with Turkish artillery last night, 25th July.

Four members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) were killed in the strikes and several others were injured, said Rudaw’s reporter.

A resident of Sergil village told Rudaw that their lives were in danger. Many of residents of this village are members of the Peshmerga forces and are fighting the Islamic State (ISIS), “How could they fight in battle while worrying about their families,” said one villager.

Around 400 villagers have been isolated in a remote area in that region due to the shelling, said Rudaw’s reporter.

Turkey is killing Kurds at will.It does it every time differently:-sometimes it does it through the I.S.,sometimes through Ocalan who orders his worshipers to performe according to his masters pan-turkish plans, and sometimes directly as it happened in Robosky and now in Kandil mountains.The brave Kurdish fighters must awake and cut their links to Ocalan,and help to form an integrated Kurdish army in the fight for independence.This is the unique opportunity for Kurds to achieve their independence,they can not miss it.They must UNITE IN ONE ARMY.

To me as a European this shows very clearly that Turkeys present government is supporting ISIS by military means by attacking Kurds from the rear opening a second front. Disgusting, very truly disgusting. So the Turkish government does openly support the ISIS project. Its clear now by Turkeys actions. Im not Kurdish but could not resist to leave my comments on how badly this reflects on Turkey.

How can this be accepted? where are the Americans? killing the family of Peshmerga that are fighting ISIS? killing PKK who are fighting ISIS?. President Barzani should convene an emergency meeting with all Kurdish parties from all parts of Kurdistan ASAP, send a message to these neighboring countries that this kind of behaviour of violating our territory will not fly anymore, those days are over.

If USA is and the rest of western countries are so called democratic, they would eliminate Turkey but instead Obama is Erdogans big muslim brother, they are Isis. If I were the world leader, I would wipe out Turkey, give it back to Greeks, Kurds and Armenians and send those mongols to where they trully come from, Mongolia.
