PKK affiliated group threatens to retaliate Turkey attacks

<p style="text-align:left">A group affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers&amp;rsquo; Party (PKK) has issued a statement alleging that Turkey bombs civilians in the Kurdistan Region on purpose and pledged to retaliate after three civilians were killed in an airstrike on Wednesday.

The People&rsquo;s Defense Forces (HPG) said on Friday, November 16, that the Turkish military has suffered significant loses at the hands of Kurdish fighters and, therefore, has resorted to targeting civilians, the statement said.
&ldquo;Turkey is attacking civilians on purpose in order to scare the Kurdistan Region&rsquo;s people. Similarly, it portrays the civilians as guerrillas in its media,&rdquo; the statement added.
According to NRT the HPG statement insisted that it is duty of any patriotic force to retaliate to avenge civilian deaths.
On Wednesday, Turkish warplanes bombed an area in the Amedi district, killing three civilians named Ramazan Abdulrahim, Ismail Hassan Qablan, and Dlovan Salih Hassan, who were working as beekeepers at their honey farms in Aradnan village.
Turkey has intermittently carried out airstrikes against suspected positions of the Kurdistan Workers&rsquo; Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region.
Besides airstrikes, units of Turkish army have entered 30 kilometers into the Kurdistan Region.
The three-decade armed struggle by the PKK against the Turkish government flared up again in 2015 after the collapse of a two-year ceasefire and settlement process.
