You have recently heard that #Turkey used mercenary groups in Syria, Libya and now #NagornoKarabakh conflict.

Bu I want to remind you that #Turkey / Ottomans always used mercenary groups as a part of their ethnic cleansing operations in Middle East, Kurdistan & Anatolia.
A mercenary group called "Gecici Koy Koruculari" (Security Village Guards of Turkey) was founded in 1985.

Turkey started to force Kurdish villagers to become a member of this criminal unit fight PKK or their villages would be torn down by Turkish military (I am an eyewitness).
Overwhelming majority of Kurds rejected to join Turkish mercenary groups (GKK) to fight #PKK (Kurdistan Worker' Party).

Human rights groups say Turkish regime forces destroyed as many as 4,000 villages and hamlets and displaced hundreds of thousands of Kurds in 1990s.

A good little documentary on the subject of the war for independence that the #PKK fights for the #Kurds And also a war against oppression. Many people will have you believe that the PKK are Terrorists but that is just not true at all.
The PKK was founded as an answer to mostly Turkish oppression of Kurds that had been going on for centuries before. The Court of Cassation has already confirmed in 2020 that the PKK is a not a Terrorist Organisation but a "Party in an armed conflict".
There are many people that often point out the innocent lives lost in attacks by the PKK and while that is true, we need to face the fact that they are fighting a war. A war which the PKK, especially Abdullah Öcala, has often tried to end by offering peace to the turkish State.
