Fifteen Turkish soldiers killed in clashes with PKK



By Ibon Villelabeitia

ANKARA (Reuters) - Fifteen Turkish soldiers were killed and 20 were wounded in clashes with Kurdish separatist PKK rebels in southeast Turkey on Friday, Turkish officials said, in one of the deadliest attacks on the military this year.

At least 23 members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) were also killed after rebels based in northern Iraq fired heavy weapons at a military outpost in the Semdinli region bordering Iraq and Iran, the military said.

The attack is likely to put pressure on Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to strike back at the PKK. It also threatens to strain ties between Iraq and Turkey, which has accused Baghdad of not doing enough to crush PKK rebels.

NATO-member Turkey has attacked PKK bases in northern Iraq several times in the past 12 months but has confined itself to shelling and air strikes since a land offensive in February.

The General Staff said two Turkish soldiers were missing and that a rescue operation was under way. It said "most of our losses were caused by heavy weapon fire from the north of Iraq."

A Reuters correspondent on the Turkish side of the border saw Turkish attack helicopters and F-16 fighter jets flying over the area on Saturday. Special forces were being deployed.

Attacks by PKK rebels based in Iraq are a major irritant in relations between Ankara and Baghdad. Washington and the European Union are concerned that prolonged Turkish military operations inside Iraq could further destabilise Iraq.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry urged Baghdad to "take necessary precautions and prevent the repetition of such attacks."

Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh condemned the PKK attack but urged Ankara to act with "wisdom and self-restraint."

NATO, the EU and the U.S. embassy in Ankara condemned the PKK attack.

PM CHAIRS SECURITY MEETING

Erdogan cut short an official visit to Turkmenistan on Saturday to chair an emergency security meeting in Ankara.

Turkish military and civilian leaders pledged in the meeting to take strong actions against the PKK and said they had considered "all methods and precautions" to do so.

"The struggle against terrorism will continue with increased determination," a statement issued after the meeting said.

Parliament this month is likely to pass a government request to extend a mandate to launch military operations against the PKK in Iraq as needed. The current mandate expires on October 17.

Turkey blames the PKK, considered a terrorist organisation by the United States and the EU, for the deaths of more than 40,000 people since it launched its campaign for an ethnic Kurdish homeland in southeast Turkey in 1984.

Washington is sharing vital intelligence with Turkey on PKK movements in Iraq. The group has been weakened in recent years and the conflict has died down since its heyday in the 1990s.#

Friday's attack is the first serious challenge for Turkey's new military chief, General Ilker Basbug, who took over NATO's second-largest army in August.

Basbug has said that, while military operations against the PKK will continue, socio-economic measures are needed to bring peace to the impoverished southeast.

President Abdullah Gul hinted at a possible intelligence failure. The outpost has been attacked several times.

"We are closely investigating how this last heinous attack was made, who were the collaborators, and who facilitated this attack?" Gul said in a statement.

Erdogan has announced plans to invest up to $12 billion in southeast Turkey to improve living standards and drain support for the PKK.

The ruling AK Party hopes to wrest control of key cities in the southeast from a pro-Kurdish political party in municipal elections next March. Turkey is home to around 12 million Kurds, a sixth of the total population.

Most support PKK though. A slight majority of Turks are sick of the anti-Islamic policies of the state. The AK party has slowly been trying to end these policies, with stiff resistance from the army and judiciary. The people want and end to these policies, but the "secular" elite are vehemently against it.

I curse Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

I am against the PKK's war. Islam has no place for nationalism. However, anyone who fights against the Turkish government, peacefully or not, to end these anti-Islamic policies, I shall praise.

well i said i "didnt know" but actually im not totally ignorant.

i just have to rebutt what i have understood as your take on the motives of the PKK.

the PKK are not attacking turkey coz of anti-islamic tendencies. they want land. they want what they believe is theirs. they are nationalist thugs with no nation..so to speak.

its the same with the armenians.

there is no point in cursing ataturk. he is a man in the past and Allah will deal with him. lets always remember that Allah uses everyone for a purpose and if Ataturk was meant to be a secularist *insertswearwordhere* then Allah obviously had plans.

peace.

Throughout my life, I have never come across a Sikh who still demands an independent Khalistan. You're the first. Just curious, how many people do you know in average who still demand a separate Khalistan?

On the other hand, I've met many Hindus who want to nuke Pakistan for no reason.

You are writing without knowledge.PKK wants land to found a so-called kurdistan.They kill for kurdistan but they kill mostly kurds.What a dilemma!
If eu an usa hadnt funded Pkk,it had ended years and years ago.In the areas where kurds live,kurds pay no tax,no bill for electiricity,no bill for water etc etc...in addition to this they want land.
And ı expect an apologise from you for saying " ı shall praise ....""""..our ancestor praised,spreaded islam through europa,asia,afrca,they fought for islam and leaded islam for about 500 year.You cannot speak like this.

suppose that my country is anti-islamic then what does your country do for islam?

That's exactly what I said. PKK is fighting for land, ie, nationalism. I don't support them. If there was an outfit in Turkey fighting to end the anti-Islamic policies, that outfit I would support.

I apologise as you misunderstood my post. I am very much against the PKK.

India has two major parties, the Congress and the BJP. The Congress are very pro-Muslim, and the BJP have killed thousands of Muslims to gain power. The Congress has done a lot for Muslims.

I just don't like the founder of your country's so called "secularism". I don't like the fact that your judiciary attempted to ban the AK party for lifting the anti-hijab university law. I don't like that fact that your military threatened to state a coup d' etat if the AK party continue to end these anti-Islamic policies.

his country is so "good" for Islam that it tried to Destroy Pakistan a number of times and only stopped invading after Pakistan acquired nuclear technology. Now they have blocked and diverted waters that would have flowed in to Pakistani rivers in effort to turn it in to a desert land.

oh yes, they gave Muslims Gujarat and Kashmir too.
I curse Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
and I curse the lahnatullah Khomieni, so there!

if there was no Atatürk, there would be no Turkey, Arab traitors would have sold it in exchange for some Mayfair *****house

if it were not for Turks and pre-lahnatullah era Iranians, there would be NO Pakistan today either (your country/Congress Party and Afghans would have carved it up like they are trying now and seem to be succeeding)

I'm not a big fan of the Congress either. I vote for the All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen. I just said that their domestic (not foreign) policies are very pro-Muslim, for votes.

My country is a secular nation, with an 80% Hindu population, 15% Muslim population. I'll be ****ed if the central party recruits its own tablighi jamaat members and sends them abroad :D

Yes, I know, I'm a big fan of the Ottoman caliphate. I just don't like the anti-Islamic system controlled by the anti-Islamic Kemalist elite that exists.

Iran is not making nuclear weapons. They need nuclear energy for civillian purposes. I smell Shiaphobia.

Anyway, why this talk on "my nation is greater than yours"? The Qur'an absolutely forbids nationalism.

I concur with Khan about the nature of the Turkish system and the desperately needed reform which is being impeded unabashed by the Kemalists who have no respect for the democratic will of the people. It is absolutely scandalous to ban girls from attending university if they choose to wear a Hijab.

These deranged zealots are mornoic enough not discern that the very system they are trying to subvert is already inherently secular, and reforming the law to allow female students to wear a Hijab will probably lend more credence to Turkey as a pluralistic, secular society making real headway towards EU membership and integration rather than an outmoded, parochial country on the fringes of Europe in every aspect.

well there are a lot of politicals situations that we cannot understand. The best time for east part of Turkey espacialy for Diyarbakır is when Gaffar Okan was governor of there. Then they killed him.. and who did it ,Turks in Ergenekon did it.
and nowadays as you know there is a very important lawsuit and what a fortuity that these actions happens at same time.. PKK also doesn't want kurts to be happy.. because PKK afraids that when they become happy. They'll stop supporting them...... For example some administrative leader ,who are close to pkk, don't do anything and they say 'see turkish government does't let us to do anything, they don't like you... They don't support here'

but also turkish government had very wrong politicals on that part in past. and now it can't be solved very easly... some people who see themself as patriotic killed a lot of innocent kurts.... and that caused PKK to be strong in those times..

Actually sis, there used to be a lot of factional strife between hanafis and shafis during the early medieval age, to such an extent that the Il-Khanate ruler Öljaitü converted to the Shi'a ithna ashari school, alienated by the factional strife. Most of modern Turkey was controlled by the Il-Khanate, which existed between 1256-1353.

It simply depends, I guess mostly Kurds are Shafis, 'cause they were influenced by Iran. It doesn't really matter, for the Shafi and Hanafi madhhabs have been the major madhhabs in Turkey for a very very long time.

turkish patriots are funny.
Im not talking about Turkish patriots!
Im talking about Turks who have knowledge about Turkey and Islam,
so that they can help us understand whats going on in turkey.
Cause who knows better after Allah than someone who actually lives there?

i know your not talking about patriots guven..

im calling you and the other brother you were talking to patriots. Even on an islamic forum you wish to better explain Turkey's disposition. you wish that more knowledgable turks would come along and teach these people a thing or two so that they may better sympathise with us.

guess what...the turkey in ur heads is not the turkey that exists in reality. im sorry.

salaams,

well if you read all the turkish posts which are conveniently in turkish, u will see that they may easily be interpreted in the way i not so willingly have. i didnt try to understand what i have...trust me..i have better things to do.

the brother (anatolia) stated that this "millet" dont care about the situation in turkey as much as you EXPECT them to...beklentilerimiz var...we expect this millet to show us more interest...more attention...and worry about us as much or close to how much we care about the situations...and as a result, we pray that more knowledgable turks come along....

to me that screams patriotism...direct or indirect..it doesnt matter. but i know that in your case guven, it is indirect....we turks seem to have this mentality built into us...we are all nationalist in some way...im not saying anything wrong..i just find it funny...

peace...i swear...:)

:salamext:

ok let me make things clear,
he said:
Hayır yanlış bir şey demedin.Millet verdiğin haberi fazla önemsemedi demek istiyorum.
He was clearly sayin that this "millet" didnt take this ARTICLE serious ,So i said/MEANT they are no turks and maybe because they dont know the situation in turkey thats why they dont take it serious and I as an european turk have NO knowledge about whats goin on in turkey , so i said/MEANT MAYBE we need more turks who can explain US ( including me) more things whats going on in Turkey so that we can get a view what tha hell is goin on in there lol

I dont care about turkish patriotism or nationalism orwhatever

...I only care for Islam.

oke enough :D

Wasallam

By PKK nationalism, he i think means it in the literal sense "Asabiyah", which the prophet (pbuh), ardently averred against. It is haram for anyone to call for it, fight for it, or die for it.
