*Two Turkish police killed close to Syria borderWhat ever their irrelevant excuse making for undertaking the hit on the two police officers, the PKK are owning the killings. As their brothers in arms owned the bombing in Suruc.
Close to the Syrian border- Hmm...- what group of people are just across the border stealing the land of a nation, stealing the property and ethnically cleansing the people of Syria- Of course, the Kurds.
Obviously, I don't believe the retribution spin. It's utter nonsense.
PKK claims murder of Turkish police officers
"Kurdish militants on Wednesday claimed the murder of two Turkish police officers as revenge for a suicide bombing.
The authorities had earlier appeared at a loss to explain the deaths of the police officers, who were shot in the head at their shared home in an apartment block in southeastern town of Ceylanpinar near the border.But the military wing of the PKK -- outlawed as a terrorist group by Turkey and its Western allies -- said the attack was a reprisal."A punitive action was carried out... in revenge for the massacre in Suruc," the People's Defence Forces (HPG) said in a statement on its website, accusing the two officers of cooperating with IS.It described the attackers as an "Apoist team of self-sacrifice," in reference to the PKK's jailed leader Abdullah Ocalan, whose nickname is "Apo" or "uncle".
Ocalan: The 'jailed' leader? With plenty of influence. As I have theorized the PKK functions as a stay-behind army. My opinion hasn't changed.
