Leaked classified documents reveal the “brutality” of the Turkish occupation against the Kurds

Selava Omar –

Secret Turkish military documents revealed violations of the Turkish regime against the Kurds, which resulted in the killing and wounding of 12,000 Kurds during a year from July 2015 to June 2016.

The Swedish website Nordic Monitor, which published the leaked documents, stated that the breakdown of peace talks that lasted two and a half years between Ankara and the Kurds in July 2015, revived the conflict that has killed more than 40,000 people since the 1980s.

According to the secret numbers, which were included in one of the documents dated June 30, 2016 prepared by the Turkish army, about 8,000 people were killed by the Turkish security forces during that year.

Despite brutal violations against the Kurds, the Turkish government prevented independent investigations of human rights violations during security operations.

On June 23, 2016, the Turkish parliament passed a law prohibiting judicial oversight of security operations and setting barriers to starting an investigation with security officials.
