Questions to ask in order to understand Kurdish conflict in Turkey
between state and Kurds
Q1: Why does Turkey kill Kurdish people?
Turkey government openly fight against extreme nationalist terrorist PKK which kills innocent civilians both Turkish and Kurdish backgrounded and radicalise thousands of youngsters who become recruits for either ISIS or PKK. Millions of Kurdish ethnic backgrounded people live in peace and enjoy their full rights and represent themselves in every part of society including politics, business and education.
Q2: Why does Turkey bomb YPG while they fight against ISIS ?
YPG is a terrorist organisation that has clear and obvious links with PKK which is an internationally recognised terrorist organisation including EU and the USA. YPG fighting against ISIS does not legitimise them and doesn’t change the fact that they are a terrorist organisation as well. Therefore Turkey takes necessary measures to protect its border and citizens just like any democracy in the world.
