Während die ganze Welt von dem Angriff Russlands auf die Ukraine redet, bereitet ein anderer Aggressor bereits den nächsten Krieg vor. Bereits seit Monaten gibt es Verhandlungen zwischen dem türkischen Staat und den staatlichen Peschmerga Einheiten der PDK, zuletzt in Antalya und hier in München auf der Sicherheitskonferenz, einen neuen Angriffskrieg auf Südkurdistan zu starten. Ziel ist es, die Kräfte der kurdischen Freiheitsbewegung in den Bergen in die Zange zu nehmen und sie dort zu zerschlagen.
Doch um dies richtig zu verstehen, müssen wir ein wenig in die Geschichte blicken und uns dann auch ansehen, was sich in den letzten Monaten entwickelt hat. Seit jeher versucht der türkische Staat – mithilfe der gesamten NATO – die kurdische Freiheitsbewegung zu vernichten, da sie ein alternatives Gesellschaftsmodell schafft,

On Monday, 14th June 2021, the press conference of the “Delegation for Peace and Freedom in Kurdistan” was held at the Mercury Hotel in Erbil/North Iraq at 9:00 CET, where the approx. 80 members from 14 countries proclaimed the international initiative “DEFEND KURDISTAN against Turkish occupation!”.
Pierre Laurent, Deputy President of the Senate of France, spoke on behalf of the delegation: “We are a peaceful and solidary peace delegation in solidarity with all the Kurdish people and we will build diplomatic pressure to stop the Turkish invasion of Southern Kurdistan.”
We, as a delegation from all over Europe, have come to Kurdistan aiming for peace and freedom. Politicians, academics, human rights activists, syndicalists, journalists, feminists and ecologists from over ten countries wanted to get direct impressions of the situation and stand up to end the war and destruction. With 150 persons we wanted to establish a dialogue with the members of parliament of all parties and visit non-governmental organizations in order to contribute to a dialogue between the different Kurdish political actors.
The invasion of the Turkish military violating international laws is without doubt unacceptable. However, we are sadly witnessing that the international community of states remains inactive against this, and does not insist on the compliance with the international codes and human rights.
On the night of April 23, 2021, at around 9:00 p.m. the areas Metina, Zap and Avasin – in total about 100 kms long and 40 kms deep – in South Kurdistan (North Iraq) became the target of unprecedented Turkish air attacks. This area is located between the Khabour river in the west and Basyan River in the east. The Turkish drones had intensified their flights over the area from a week before. Then came the fighter jet attacks at that night. There were tens of jets in the air, each bombing the mountains, cliffs, forests, valleys time and time again. This lasted for an hour. After that came the artillery and rockets. Hundreds of artillery shells were fired at the area. Every target hit by the fighter jets was hit again by artillery shells. After this barrage of artillery, many helicopter gunships were deployed to Metina, Zap and Avasin and fired rockets and thousands of bullets while the area continued to be pounded by Turkish jets and artillery. This caused huge fires in the area which is covered by dense forests and hosts a variety of different animals, some of which are under the threat of extinction. After that, under the protection of armed Turkish drones and helicopter gunships hundreds of Turkish soldiers were airdropped in the area. Some 2 kms deep in the area, and some 9 kms.
