Four more Kurdish civilians murdered by Turkish forces in Silopi

SILOPI (ANF) – In Silopi district of Şırnak where a state of siege continues for 23 days, bodies of four slain civilians have been brought to Silopi State Hospital.

Bodies reportedly belong to civilians from Karşıyaka neighborhood where state forces opened heavy and random fire on civilian settlements for hours late yesterday evening. The aggression has also left many wounded.

HDP Şırnak deputies Aycan İrmez and Ferhat Encü and HDP Silopi branch co-chair Aycan Azma were hindered by state forces with armored vehicles as they wanted to go Silopi State Hospital after the delivery of the four bodies to the morgue.

Ferhat Encü said they were stopped and surrounded by hundreds of soldiers and armored vehicles before reaching the hospital to learn about the identities of casualties and take care of the wounded. “The hospital is encircled at the moment and we are not allowed to move. We do not know what they are hiding there”, he said.
