A senior member of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), Bahoz Erdal of Syria, has ordered the group's militants avenge the destruction of a key PKK camp by Turkish security forces during an operation, according to Turkish intelligence units.


Also on Friday, Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Gaziantep Deputy Şamil Tayyar, who was an investigative journalist who wrote extensively on the PKK prior to his election to Parliament, in televised remarks urged commentators, journalists and the public in general to be aware of the real purpose of the KCK. He said, "The KCK is not the PKK's urban wing," referring to a definition used for the group by some newspapers. "The KCK is a project to build an alternative state. The only thing it doesn't have is borders. It is an urban structure that is above the PKK," he said.

Speaking during a program on TV8, Tayyar said the KCK had its courts, chief military officers, parliament, judiciary and executive organs and even a constitution. "The prime minister of this alternative state is [PKK military operations leader] Murat Karayılan and its president is [PKK's jailed chief] Abdullah Öcalan. Its chief of general staff is [Syrian senior PKK commander] Fehman Hüseyin," Tayyar said.

Iraqi Vice President Hashemi: Sending troops to Turkish border will not resolve PKK issue

Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi. . . speaking in an interview with the Anatolia news agency on Friday, . . .

"There is no agreement that clearly outlines what the parties should do to establish permanent peace along the borders of Turkey, Iraq and Iran and to end the violence. The PKK and PJAK [Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan] issue will not be resolved by sending Iraqi military forces and peshmerga to the border region. A military solution is not sufficient on its own. A lot of solutions are needed," Hashemi was quoted as saying by Anatolia.

Remarks by the Iraqi vice president came in contrast to what Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said recently. Maliki stated on Monday that sending Iraqi troops to the north of Iraq is the best option to push out members of the PKK and its Iranian wing, PJAK.
