AMED (KDN) – After turning Kurdish towns of Cizre, Silopi and Sur into Aleppo, Turkish terror state announced that new curfews have been declared in two districts of the Kurdish provinces of Hakkari and Mardin, two days after Turkey’s interior minister declared there would be new military operations in the region.
The Hakkari Governor’s Office released an official statement announcing that an indefinite curfew has been declared in its Yüksekova district and all entries and exits have been banned to the district in order to “ensure the physical and material safety of citizens amid increasing incidents of terrorism.”

Turkish media reports that some 80 tanks were dispatched to the district during the week and thousands of soldiers.
