ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - On the seventh anniversary of the Roboski massacre in which 34 Kurdish villagers were killed in a Turkish air strike the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) said on Friday that it was “an embarrassment” for Turkey which it blames for the deaths.

 

Seven years have passed on the mass killing of 34 Kurdish villagers, mostly children, said the HDP, and these people were only trying to make a living.

 

“Roboski is the country's embarrassment and bleeding wound and the search for justice.” HDP said.

 

The Kurdish villagers were carrying goods across the border between Turkey and the Kurdistan Region when Turkish F-16 warplanes bombed their convoy on December 28, 2011.

 

Only six survived the incident.

 

The Turkish government called the incident a tragic mistake, but families still await prosecution of the perpetrators.

First of all they were smugglers and mistaken for PKK terrorists. Shit happens when you do make profit from illegal activities in high tensioned areas.

As long as Kurds are running around unarmed and easy to kill turkey will use murder and genocide on Kurds as their first and last leverage on any entity that wants and can help the Kurds. That’s why they feel backstabbed they don’t consider their own position on the chess field.

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