Interior Minister Efkan Ala said that the government is taking "all the necessary measures" to avoid loss of civilian life during the ongoing terror operations. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday night, Ala said that they are trying to provide accommodation and food, aiming to help the people who have fled their homes because of the PKK's terrorist activities.
It is estimated that around 200,000 people in the southeastern provinces of Turkey have fled their homes since the PKK terrorist organization escalated its activities in the last five months, with attacks on security forces, explosives in public streets, and roadblocks and ditches to hinder security personnel. Giving detailed information about the ongoing terror operations in Parliament, Ala said that they will service the needs of the all citizens who have been affected by the terror operations. "We are taking all the necessary measures to avoid the loss of civilian life. I cannot say that everything is perfect but we can solve the problems of citizens who contact us completely," he said.
Emphasizing that Parliament can find a solution after the PKK terrorists unconditionally lay down their arms, Ala said, "There is no Kurdish problem in the country, but the Kurds have a PKK problem." "We would be talking about the new reforms if there was no terrorism problem and our citizens would benefit from that. All the elected representatives should stand against those who try to bury democracy in the trenches," he added.
Criticizing local mayors from the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), Ala said that engineering vehicles in HDP municipalities dig trenches and build barricades instead of providing public services. Ala also said that so far 20 local mayors and about 60 councilors have been relieved of their duties after their support for terrorists was proven.
