Kurdish family: Martyred Peshmerga only rest with independence

By Associated Press 24/9/2017
-
The fight for modern Kurdish independence has been a 100-year struggle.
 
In the most recent aggression against the Kurds, more than 2,000 Kurdish Peshmerga lost their lives defending their homeland against ISIS militants.
 
The daughter of one deceased Peshmerga speaks of her father's sacrifice.
 
"We want peace and safety in this land, every family of a martyr's who gave his life will only rest when Kurdistan becomes independent," said Kocher Kidr in Erbil.

Voting independence is both a patriotic and human duty that no honorable people can fail. You Kurd ,on 25 September you have to go voting independence, save your dignity and salvage your responsibilty towards the future generations of Kurds, don't condemn them to slavery and all the hardships we have sufered under the foreigne tyrany for one hundred years since our country has been partitioned among the terrible enemies who have submitted us to every kind of abuses ,death and genocide. Our brave martyrs who died for us are watching us and they will haunt those who defect them for the time to come and till eternity .
