Kurdish language is still banned in Turkey, a group of Kurdish kids boycotting Turkish schools.

AMED (KDN) – Turkish army continues its terror campaign against Kurdish people in Kurdistan. A Turkish army bomb set in a schoolyard in Kurdish capital of Diyarbakir was detonated by police while students were holding a ceremony for semester break.

The blast took place at 8:24 a.m. on Jan. 22 at the Nuriye Eser Primary School in Diyarbakır’s Bağlar district during the distribution of report cards on the last school day of the first semester, Doğan News Agency reported.

Turkish government and its war media blamed the blast on the Kurds but local sources and families said it was the army who set up the bomb in schoolyard earlier today.

Kurdish leader Selahattin Demirtas condemned the attack and asked for those responsible to be brought to justice. “It doesn’t matter who carried out the attack. It is a barbaric attack.” he said. The co-chair of the pro-Kurdish HDP also added that he doubts that the Turkish government would find those who set up the bomb in schoolyard which wounded 5 school children.
