Yesterday, armored vehicles of Turkish forces started to attack the building with heavy artillery and mortar fire short before the arrival of Cizre Municipality ambulances that were finally allowed to go to the scene and retrieve the casualties. However, ambulances were stopped on their way and taken to the police directorate in Konak neighborhood where they are being held waiting since.
As the building remains under artillery and mortar fire, state forces that surrounded the area with armored vehicles made announcements calling on the people inside to “surrender”.
HDP Şırnak MP Faysal Sarıyıldız who is in the town himself said that it was an attempt of massacre to impose surrender on the wounded people who cannot stand up or go out of that basement even. He underlined that; “State forces must be withdrawn from the area and ambulances must be sent to the scene to get them out in the shortest time possible.”
