Stop Bombing Iraqi Kurdistan!

Since 2007, the government of Turkey has been bombing the Pishdar region of Iraqi Kurdistan. Innocent Iraqi Kurds are victims of these bombings — twenty people have been killed and more than a hundred civilian homes destroyed. The people of this area have been displaced, which has taken a mental toll. They struggle with the loss of their livelihoods (livestock, beekeeping, agriculture). The constant bombardment has resulted in a lack of schools since teachers are afraid to travel to the area. The U.S. government can take immediate steps to pressure the Turkish government to stop the bombing.


To President Trump:

We ask you to urge President Erdogan to stop the Turkish air war in northern Iraq. The U.S. government could take immediate steps to pressure the Turkish government to stop the bombing. On Friday, July 28, 2017, as part of their cross-border bombing campaign, the Turkish Army shelled areas around Zakho district of Iraqi Kurdistan. As a result, four civilians have been injured. The Turkish officials claimed that they shelled the area due to the presence of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), however, the civilians have rejected the Turkish government's claim. Let's listen to the innocent civilians!

Sincerely,

    The Kurds have been fighting,side by side, with the U.S. In Iraq. We should be fighting for them, in Iraq,as well.

    Turkey has been using U.S.-caused turmoil in neighboring Iraq as an excuse to continue their

    genocide against Kurds that began with the massacre over a hundred years ago. With Da’esh

    and supposed “security concerns” about “terrorism”, they attack people who are, in fact, victims

    of Da’esh, rather than Da’esh positions directly. Turkey has its own agenda in Iraq which

    conflicts with stated U.S. goals for the region, and therefor constitutes at least a public relations

    nightmare for us as we sit back and do and say nothing as this travesty continues.
