ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—Turkey’s Anadolu Agency claimed that a senior leader of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) was killed in Syria on Friday evening, a claim denied by the PKK.

Anadolu Agency reported that Fehman Hüseyin, known as Bahoz Erdal, was killed when the car he was traveling in was blown up as he was driving from Qamishli, in Rojava, northern Syria, into Turkey. There were reportedly eight people in the vehicle according to Halid al-Hasekavi, a spokesperson for the Tel Hamis Brigade.

A spokesperson for the People’s Defence Forces (HPG), the military wing of the PKK, denied the reports.

This is not the first time Erdal’s death has been reported. In 2014, media reports claimed he was killed in Kobane.

Kurdish freedom movement i not depend on one or two person. Erdogan want to declare victory over pkk and he may think assassinating some top leaders will create that impression in turkey get some votes. he is afraid of losing nationalist and some religious voters after deals with Russia,israel and incapability of doing anything against Germans passing Armenian genocide law or Americans standing with Rojava. ====================================== even if some leaders dies, pkk takes his power from ordinary patriotic kurdish people. even 20 years old Kurdish boy can lead pkk. and kurds are becoming very popular in middle east.Kurds has never had their own country in the history but they changed output of history many times being on the wrong side. salahidin ayubu fought and saved arabic empire. kurds made a deal with ottoman sultan and after that ottoman Empire expanded their territory in middle east and europe. it is again with help of kurdish soldiers , Ataturk managed to get a brand new country from ashes of ottoman empire. ============ fortunately now kurds are fighting for themselves and America/Russia know if they work with kurds, they will be more influence in the middle east. now Kurds will work with Americam empire instead of arab empire, ottoman empire etc.. and Americans are business minded people. they will assure kurds will be satisfied at the end of struggle in the middle east.

Anyone who battles our sovereignty must face to be killed, and soared to define the equality rights, because they want to take part from one active country, and they want to destroy nothing but anything that Turkey had attractions to open them public tourism and sightseeing. Today, lots of places in South Eastern Turkey were displaced by tourists, the United Kingdom's FCO, Germany, United States are making recommendations not to visit there, and say they "were" against to open tourism travel, it is just because of you, the participant to the killings of Kurdish-civilian maintained these horrendous attacks!..

Tempting to mention for Navetin, that in the same periode, where the armenians were killed by Ottomans around 200.000 assyruians and 100.000 christians&Jewes disapered in the Kursish regions. After that many left overs are killed or has escaped to many countries and very big groups of kurdes are moved around to divede. Things are much more complicated than only descriping the clean part of Your own laundry. US, GB & France came after that, so dont blame the for everything. Dont think they and western Europe ever wiched or wanted Erdogan, but he is also a produckt as You are Yourselves. Dont forget Ottoman/Turks would almost have disapeered from the map. Doubbled Armenia, Kurdish in-land state, Greeks getting Ismir and much more, Zar russian getting Istanbull, GB getting Cyprus and a few more islands and Italy getting the soutwesterne part of "Minor Asia). Its a very new things kurds are even kvalified to gouvern anything but tribes and families, and dont forget, Your PKK is a small minoriy among many kurds inside Turkey. When You escalate Erdogan & Co in Ankara do same thing and a lot of people of Your own - which might not be Ypur own, You just claim it - cant live in peace and develope.
