The statement from the HPG Media Office is as follows:
“Kurdistan's Freedom Guerrillas, who are resisting against heavy attacks with great sacrifice and self-sacrifice Apoist spirit, are the biggest obstacle in front of the murderous and oppressive Turkish state's plans to attack Kurdistan and the entire Middle East. In order to remove this obstacle, the Turkish occupation state is carrying out unlimited attacks with inhumane methods. Our forces are carrying out an unparalleled resistance against those attacks. Along with tactical nuclear bombs and chemical weapons, the Turkish army set fire to plastic materials and vehicle tires in front of the battle positions in the Resistance Area of Werkhele and tried to send poison gas inside the battle positions.
In actions carried out by our forces, lead by our mobile tems, 6 occupiers were killed, 3 occupiers were injured, damage was dealt to an attack helicopter and a drone. The Turkish occupation carried out bombings 17 times with tactical nuclear bombs and chemical weapons, 25 times with warplanes and dozens of times with tanks.
