ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Rudaw Media Network strongly condemns an attack on its reporting crew by supporters of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in Erbil on Sunday.

Members of the Rudaw team were assaulted in front of the United Nations office in Erbil where members and supporters of the PKK had gathered to demand freedom for their jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan and an end to Turkish military operations.

Rudaw correspondent Kurdistan Hassan and her cameraman Jegir Omar were hurt in the assault.

They reported that they had also received threats from the PKK supporters.

The protesters broke the police barriers and as a result wounded three members of the riot police.

Rudaw strongly condemns the assault on its crew and holds organizers of the protest legally responsible.

The network likewise urges PKK leaders to end their restrictions on Rudaw reporters in Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava) and other areas under their control.

Suppressing freedom of the press is against the principles of democracy and the Kurdish freedom movement.

Ass**les hysterycal APO (s.a.w.s) fanatics Those lunatics can sacrify their own children for 1 minute lifetime of APO (s.a.w.s) prophet Ocalan (s.a.w.s) was 50% turk don't forget this (moreover being turk is being bastard anatolian + inbred mongoloid lol) If APO (s.a.w.s) was a real man he would not move to africa like a coward but stay to the mountains (how dumb can you be when you know that africans can be corrupted with a Mc' Chicken Nuggets)

Thousands of stupid and naive ignorants are purposefully used by PKK provocateurs and traitors in all parts of Greater Kurdistan to prevent integration of Southern Kurdistan and Western Kurdistan and establishment of independent federative democratic Kurdistan. PKK, HDP, PYD are "pro-kurdish", but never were true Kurdish organizations.

Millions of people are under extreme oppression by Turkish fashism. But Pkk care only for APO! What? Is APO more valuable than silopi, cizre, shernak? Why APO birth place Riha don't rebel against Turkish occupation? Antep is the transit for isis. Marash is the center of ignorance. But just scream biji APO will not save Kurdistan. We are tired of you being a looser.
Pkk or Kurdistan | 7/2/2016
Is there any smart people out there? If yes, why Pkk don't want Kurdish state but instead democratic Turkey? Why Pkk is willing to work with Arabs tribes like shamar but cannot works with KRG? Why Pkk accept pirate style flag but not historical Kurdish flag? Did Kurdish history started tausend years ago or in 1984? Is APO the new kemalist of Kurdish style? Why can't we mouve on with this outdated leader such as APO, Barzani, Talabani? Kurdish nation first, not our leader ego!

PKK supporters are shallow minded. Honestly, they seem to have lived in cave for centuries, they have not understood the changes that have taken place.
