ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The ceasefire with the Turkish government is practically over according to a statement released by  the armed wing of the ​ Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK)​. 

The bases of the PKK in Iraqi Kurdistan were heavily bombarded by the Turkish warplanes last night on Friday, announced the armed wing of the PKK in Turkey—the People’s Protection Forces (HPG).

“On July 24 at 11 pm, a large number of Turkish warplanes bombarded the border region of Badinan region, and Qandil and Khwakurk on 1 am of 25 of July,” said HPG in a statement.

“The ceasefire has become meaningless. We will inform our people about the result of the bombardment as soon as possible,” continued the HPG statement.

The HPG claimed responsibility for the assassination of two Turkish policemen last Wednesday on July 22, saying it was a reprisal for suicide bombing in Suruc, south of Turkey.

KRG is the real kurdistan. PKK takes KIDS to the mountains, PKK forces women to serve, PKK smuggles drugs to europe (one of their guys got arrested recently in kurdish ally Germany, of all places)... ONLY KRG can ever achieve independence for KURDISTAN! My people, IF you love Ala Rengin, STAND WITH THE KRG!!!!!

I'm gonna keep it real so I don't care about hurt feelings. The PKK is no angel. Some of there methods does not fall into the characteristics of kurds. With that being said, I understand the frustration of the struggle. I support the PKK 100%. Shame on the KRG for doing business with Turkey. That's pathetic. That's not real independence. A greater Kurdistan is when I'll be satisfied. Not just 25%...let's just do it! No more talk kurds! Let's create a greater Kurdistan! Arabs are standing up for there "arab springs" why can't we kurds stand up, unite, turn into super saiyian 4 and with white people's support, we can have a kurdish society ran by kurds!

The PKK must ,in first place,free itself from Ocalan,the monster of Imrali who spills the Kurdish blood at will of the Turks.

Just when you thought the situation in Mid East couldn't get any worse.

So that is a small attack on the IS for the press, and then bombing the largest force against the IS in Iraq. The IS must be really happy now... Turkey will weak the Kurdish forces until the IS concurs the north of Iraq and Syria, and the IS will murder everybody that does not agree with them. That will happen. The USA and the west should work together with Assad and the Kurds and forget about Erdogan. Erdogan is a muslimbrother and he rather wants to have a islamic state on his borders than a Kurdish state.
