ISTANBUL (ANF) – Kurdistan Freedom Falcons (also known as the Kurdistan Freedom Hawks, Teyrêbazên Azadiya Kurdistan, or TAK) has announced initiation of a new battle initiative in response to the all-out annihilation concept of the Turkish-AKP state.

The statement on TAK’s official website warned everyone that sides by or takes part in the all-out war of annihilation waged against the Kurdish people, and underlined that their action will spread across Turkey without dependence on PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) or any other Kurdish organisations.

‘BEGINNING OF A NEW BATTLE INITIATIVE’

Recalling that the mortar attack at Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport on 23 December 2015 had been conducted by their side, TAK said this action marked the beginning of their new battle initiative against the İmralı isolation imposed on Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan by the fascist TC-AKP dictatorship, and the all-out war concept executed against the Kurdish people.

TAK said they have made new decisions on the basis of a recent situation assessment after a suspension of their actions for some time as a matter of responsibility and loyalty towards Kurdish people’s leader Abdullah Öcalan and the calls he had made within the process of talks.

‘OUR FIELD OF ACTION INVOLVES WHOLE TURKEY’

TAK emphasised that it was a part of their mission towards Öcalan and Kurdish people to strengthen, deepen, extend and advance their organisational activities as long as the İmralı isolation and all-out genocidal attacks in Kurdistan continue. Vowing to step up the War of Vengeance against the fascist Turkish-AKP state, TAK said; “Every institution and establishment of the state is a target to us, and our field of action involves whole Turkey.”

‘WE WARN THE COLLABORATORS’

Warning not only those waging this war but also their accomplices, collaborators and supporters, Kurdistan Freedom Falcons said; “It should be known by everyone that Kurdistan Freedom militants will give a merciless and unhesitant response to the fascist Turkish state- a merciless perpetrator of repression, massacre and terror against the Kurdish people without a discrimination of women, children and youths-.”

‘WHOLE TURKEY WILL BE AS SAFE AS CİZRE, SİLOPİ AND SUR’

TAK said they will spread the war across whole Turkey, adding; “People in Turkey will be as safe as Kurdish children, youths, mothers, elderly and women in Cizre, Silopi Sur, Nusaybin and Kerboran are under a rain of death with helicopters, tanks, heavy arms and explosives.”

‘AVENGE IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS OUR PEOPLE’

Stressing that TAK will retaliate every attack and massacre committed by those involved in this war, TAK noted that this was their responsibility towards history, Kurdistan and suppressed Kurdish people.

‘WE ARE NOT DEPENDED ON PKK WHICH IS TOO HUMANINST’

Making TAK’s stance and relation with other structures clear, the statement said; “The target perspectives, manner of action and tactics pursued by the PKK and other Kurdish organisations in war have a quite ‘humanist’ character in the face of the methods used by the existing Turkish state fascism against the Kurdish people. In this regard, we are not dependent on the target perspectives, manner of action and tactics of these organisations. We as TAK will determine and realize our independent action strategy, tactics and manner in line with the mission we have undertaken.”
