MESOP MIDEAST WATCH : THE FINAL DAYS OF KURDISH PKK -Birtan Sarya: Iraq supports KDP to exterminate Kurds

Journalist Birtan Sarya indicated that Iraq joined the plan to exterminate the Kurds led by the Turkish state and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, by building the wall between Shengal and Rojava. She explained that there are new schemes to create strife and hostility between the peoples of Shengal.ANHA NEWS 10 Apr 2022, “The Turkish state funds the construction of the wall”

Birtan Sarya described the wall as “part of the project to complete the genocide of the Kurds,” and said, “A wall is being built, about 250 km long, three meters high and 75 cm thick between the Autonomous Administration areas in Rojava, north and east Syria and Shengal. It is scheduled to be completed. “The wall within two months. This is a dangerous situation. In fact, it is very clear that it is part of the project to complete the genocide of the Kurds and that the Turkish state and the Kurdistan Democratic Party are supporting on this project. It is also mentioned that the Turkish state is financing the construction of the wall.”

Birtan Sarya recalled the developments of events in Shengal before and after the ISIS massacre, saying: “It is known that ISIS carried out a genocide in Shengal on August 3, 2014. The Iraqi Government first and then the Kurdistan Democratic Party left the Yazidis on the day of the genocide to face ISIS alone. The People’s Protection Units (YPG), Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) and the Guerilla fought and rushed to the aid of the people in the area. The nine Guerrilla who managed to reach the area despite all the pressures of the Kurdistan Democratic Party before the massacre saved the majority of the people from extermination. At that time the Yazidis who crossed into Rojava fought the resistance with the People’s Protection Units, the Women’s Protection Units and the Guerrilla and in 2015 formed the Şengal Resistance Units (YBŞ), the Şengal Women’s Units (YJŞ) and the Şengal Democratic Autonomous Administration Council.

However, after the liberation of Shengal from ISIS in 2015, it became a target for both the KDP and the Turkish state. The KDP is cooperating with this and colluding with it in every way. The Iraqi Government had previously rejected this scheme and stood against it, but it has joined it since 2020 through the various initiatives undertaken by the Turkish state and some of the tasks entrusted to it by the United States of America. They announced the Shengal Agreement, which aims to completely break the will of the Autonomous Administration, on October 9, 2020, on the anniversary of the international conspiracy. But the Yazidis did not recognize this agreement, especially the Yazidis who lived through the genocide and are still resisting to this day.”

“The goal is to keep Shengal isolated and unprotected.”

Birtan Sarya commented on the goal to be achieved by building this wall, saying: “With this wall now, they are taking a step to break this resistance and seek to keep the Kurds away from each other and separate them. Rojava forces, the Community Protection Units (YPG) and the Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) have rushed to help Shengal. That is why they build this wall to separate Shengal from Rojava, and cut the link between the Yazidis there and the Kurds in Rojava, leaving them isolated and more unprotected. In this way, they seek to complete the genocide of the Kurds in all parts of Kurdistan and carry out physical extermination. The Yazidis expressed their condemnation for the October 9, 2020 agreement regarding Shengal, as they are still resisting, while the Kurdistan Democratic Party seeks to prepare with the Turkish and Iraqi states to implement the 74th decree against the Yazidis.

“The KDP is a pro-genocide servant”

Journalist Birtan Sarya provided this information about the practices of the KDP and its preparations to join the new attacks of the Turkish state: “The preparations are being made for new occupational attacks in which the KDP participates. Soldiers were sent in the region to Gali, Qlaban and Colemêrg for days. For example, on the 5th of This April, there is information that helicopters and soldiers have been dispatched to Başûr. This has been revealed, but we do not know to what extent the KDP will be involved in the war, but it is already involved. The Turkish state has established 5 huge bases and 38 military bases in Başûr. It is evacuating the villages of Başû, threaten villagers, use chemical weapons, destroy forests, chop down trees and sell them. Instead of the KDP condemning these actions, it targets the PKK.
