A gunman named Onur Gencer, who stormed the HDP headquarters in the western Turkish province of İzmir in the morning, killed the party member Deniz Poyraz and set the building on fire.
According to JinNews, the slain party member’s mother Fehime Poyraz wanted to see her daughter inside the party building, but the police did not allow her.
Mother Poyraz reacted to the police saying, “Open the way, I will get in, no one can stop me. They killed my child. May God kill you, too. I am a mother, I have the right to speak, no one should try to silence me.”
“The Kurdish people are always standing; they will always be standing. One Deniz is gone, a thousand Deniz will come,” the mother stressed.
HDP supporters have gathered in front of the party building and reacted to the police, saying, ‘You are protecting the murderers’.
