HPG Press Centre has announced the ID details of two guerrillas who were murdered by KDP-affiliated gang groups in Shengal, saying “Two guerrillas of ours were viciously martyred”.

The statement by HPG (People's Defense Forces) Press Office said that;

“Fighting erupted following an attack of gangs calling themselves Rojava Peshmergas affiliated to the ENKS who targeted the Shengal Resistance Units -YBŞ in Khanesor and Suninê towns of Shengal on March 3.

Our guerrilla forces responsible for the security and defense of our Êzidî people in Shengal therewith assigned and sent a unit to the scene against these gangs that acted for provocation purposes and against the interests of the local people.

Our guerrillas who acted for mediation in order to hinder a conflict were shot and martyred by Rojava gangs with fire from armored vehicles. This attack which also caused the martyrdom of a group of YBŞ fighters is an aggression planned by the Turkish state.

This attack that targeted our guerrilla force who fulfilled their national duty as the Êzidî people faced massacres, was clearly planned by the enemies of the Kurdistan people.

We announce that we will continue the defense of our people and the Shengal region against all these attacks, and we offer our condolences to the valuable families of our fallen comrades Çekdar and Orhan."

HPG noted that Çekdar (Newroz Güvercin) joined the ranks of the Kurdish Freedom Struggle from Kars, North Kurdistan and Orhan (İbrahim Hüso) from Qamishlo, Rojava, adding that both guerrillas took their place in the front lines in the battle against the ISIS.

HPG commemorated the two guerrillas with respect, and pledged to continue the struggle with commitment and determination more than ever against those trying to disrupt the national unity and struggle that the people of Kurdistan created at the cost of a heavy price.
