Bombed Qandil villagers: 'We have nothing left"

By Rudaw 1/8/2015
Rudaw.

Residents of Zargali village on the outskirts of the Qandil Mountains have called upon the Kurdistan Regional Government to help secure their homes that were bombed Saturday, leading to the deaths of nine people.

Villagers who spoke to Rudaw said they wanted no part of any dispute between Turkey and the Kurdistan Workers' Party.

"We are civilians and innocent people with no weapons in hand. We are not part of the long-period of conflict between PKK and Turkey," said one local resident.

"Therefore, we are strongly condemning the recent bombardments."

The villager said the livelihoods and homes of the locals have been destroyed, leaving them with nothing to return to.

This is a despicable act by Turkey which needs to be condemned by everyone, killing families while they sleep. The PKK is an insurgency, they have popular support on both sides if the border so you can never target them "cleanly". Best part is the Turks complain about Assad or Israel "bombing civilians", they are worse.

This translation is manipulated, they are saying no PKK fighters was in that village, they also said Turkey has shelled the area several times, all this was omitted in the translation.

Turkey is deliberate in attacking villages so that fighters will be put to blame. This is Cruelty Mr Banki Moon.

US only can trust the Kurds, it's been long due that he dumps Turkey and supports Kurds unconditionally.
