PKK using CHP to stall anti-terror operations

The opposition CHP is being used by the outlawed PKK to do their dirty work

Turkey's homemade unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are playing a key role in the effective fight against secessionist PKK terrorism…

In the past few days, with the help of UAVs, Turkish security forces have killed dozens of PKK terrorists and have dealt a serious blow to the secessionist militants. This has been going on for months. The ranks of the PKK are being depleted and there is panic in the northern Iraqi mountains of Qandil, where PKK leadership is held up…

Especially after the July 15, 2016 failed coup attempt, Turkey has been carrying out a much more effective fight against PKK terrorism. There are two reasons for this.

One is that Fetullah Gülen's gang members have been weeded out of the police force and the military. It has now become apparent that Gülen's gang members who were embedded in the security forces were cooperating with the PKK and helping them escape anti-terrorist operations… Thus, now security forces have become much more effective in dealing with the PKK terrorists…

The second is the fact that Turkey has now acquired its own UAVs that have started to pinpoint and attack terrorists. It is now clear that UAVs hired from Israel for intelligence gathering and American assistance to provide intelligence through their own UAVs was extremely ineffective… Whether this was done on purpose or not remains to be seen…

At first the UAVs were deployed to monitor the movements of PKK terrorists and thus help Turkish jets and attack helicopters raid their hideouts. Then Turkey developed its own armed UAVs and the fight against the PKK started in earnest. The PKK now dreads the UAVs as they are silent and can catch the PKK murderers with no trouble.

So the PKK realized that it has to do something to stall the UAV attacks… What is sad is that they chose to manipulate the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) to do this…

CHP Deputy Chairman Sezgin Tanrıkulu, a Kurdish advocate and the former bar president of Diyarbakır, claimed the UAVs had killed Kurdish civilians… He tried to make a big issue out of his claims, especially on social media…Later, it became apparent that the four "civilians" he said were killed by UAVs in fact were terrorists who were at a PKK meeting. CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, who is famed for being an extremely naïve person, claimed the four were actually on a picnic and they were killed by a UAV attack… Later it became apparent that the four had violated a military zone which was off limits to civilians, they had slipped past barriers blocking the area and had met with four PKK terrorists. The UAV had spotted the four terrorists and their four collaborators and had attacked them, killing seven and wounding one of the collaborators…

So the CHP is being used by the PKK to do their dirty work… This is a meaningless effort to discredit the security forces and try to ground the UAVs. No wonder CHP leader Kılıçdaroğlu is protested and booed when he attends the funerals of soldiers martyred by the PKK…
