Faysal Sarıyıldız, Şırnak deputy for the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), who was caught allegedly delivering arms to PKK terrorists, has reportedly attempted to entrap security forces in the Cizre district of Turkey's Şırnak province, claiming that "30 people have been wounded in the basement of a building and cannot reach an ambulance."

According to the Yeni Şafak daily, health personnel asked Sarıyıldız for the location of the building and details regarding the people supposedly trapped inside. However, Sarıyıldız reportedly hung up the phone while saying, "This business is not for you to handle."

Upon receiving the address of the building, security forces accompanied health personnel to the location under suspicion that it was a ruse, since the area has been laden with heavy clashes with PKK terrorists. When the ambulance and security forces arrived, terrorists opened fire on the ambulance from the building and security forces suspicions were realized.A terrorist using the code name "Mamo," who reportedly set up all explosives in the district of Cizre, is among the wounded who are reportedly trapped inside the building. Along with "Mamo," the district's PKK soi-disant commander Mehmet Tunç, the managing editor of the PKK-affiliated Azadiya Welat daily, Rohat Aktaş, and the district's financial head are reportedly among other prominent figures inside the building.

In July, HDP deputy Sarıyıldız was accused of "supplying arms to the terrorist organization," for allegedly smuggling weapons intended for the PKK from Syria into Turkey. The pro-Kurdish HDP party has been repeatedly accused of aiding and abetting the terrorist organization through abuse of office and personal attempts. The party has been severely criticized for failing to distance itself from the PKK terrorist organization.
