Kurdish artist Şivan Perwer reacted in his social media account to the operation launched by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) in the Metîna, Avaşîn and Zap regions on 23 April.
Pwerwer added: ”They have been attacking Bashurê Kurdistan since yesterday. They also show the PKK as a reason. The PKK is not doing ‘terrorism’. The purpose of the attack is how to eliminate Kurdish people. They caused trouble for the peoples in Libya, Syria and Armenia. But they are the biggest trouble for the Kurdish people”.
Perwer pointed out that Kurdish people in the region must be united. “What happened to the Northern Kurds also happens to Kurds in the Rojhilat (East), the Bashur (South) and the Kurds in Rojava (West). They want Kurdish people to be eliminated everywhere. Kurds should be united and support each other”, he said.
”If the Kurds do not unite, if we do not defend them and resist them together, we will perish. Those who did not defend themselves have always disappeared. The Kurdish people should never be enemies of each other: they should protect each other”.
