Guerrillas continue dealing blows to the invading Turkish army in Kurdistan territory.
The People’s Defense Forces (HPG) Press Centre reported that the guerrillas carried out a "simultaneous and coordinated" action against the Turkish soldiers at the Gürcübulak Border Gate. Two cobra type vehicles, a tent and two positions belonging to the Turkish forces were targeted during the action.
The HPG Press Centre released the details of the action in the border region in Ağrı province:
"At 19:00 on May 13, our forces carried out a simultaneous and coordinated action as part of the "Dem Dema Azadiyê Ye" (Time for Freedom) campaign against the enemy troops who mount guard in the Gürcübulak Border Gate in the Glîdax area of the Serhat region. Two Cobra type vehicles, one tent and two positions belonging to the enemy forces were targeted and hit. One Cobra type vehicle was hit and destroyed and the soldiers inside it were killed while the other Cobra vehicle and two positions were also struck. The enemy soldiers targeted here ran towards the tent, which was also struck and destroyed later, with several of them being killed.
The Turkish state announced that one soldier named Veli Kabalay was killed in this action. In contrast to the Turkish claims, several invaders were killed during the action which was carried out to avenge our female comrades who were martyred in Amed (Diyarbakir) on April 29.”
