Turkey Bombing Kurds, not ISIS

As the world wonders why Turkey is standing down and allowing ISIS fighters to continue their reign of terror in the Syrian border town of Kobane, Turkey is actually bombing Kurds according to the UK Telegraph. In reality, this is not new. As Shoebat.com reported, Turkey has been demonstrating animosity toward and a lack of support for the Kurds for some time now.

This latest example should make it more obvious:

Turkish jets bombed targets in the southeast of Turkey where members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) are based, the first strikes on the outlawed group since a 2013 ceasefire, a security source said.

Turkish F-16 jets dropped bombs late on Monday on PKK targets in the village of Daglica in the Kurdish-majority Hakkari province near the border with Iraq, the source told AFP on condition of anonymity.

The fierce clashes between Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) insurgents and Kurdish forces in the key Syrian town of Kobane have shaken Turkey’s fragile peace process with the PKK, blacklisted as a terrorist organisation by Ankara and much of the international community.

Frustrated with Turkey’s lack of action to stop Isil’s advance in northern Syria, Turkey’s Kurdish community has taken to streets in several cities in the southeast over the past week, with scores killed in deadly clashes.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed the unrest on the “dark forces” seeking to sabotage the delicate peace process with the PKK to end 30 years of violence that has claimed at least 40,000 lives.

These new developments are very much in line with what Shoebat.com published last month. Turkey’s actions have become increasingly more favorable to ISIS than to the Kurds because there is a larger plan at work.
