It is more or less proven that the latest Hakkari bombing was performed by a pro-violence group within PKK…. there is a substantive chance that PKK may stop violence despite the hawkish groups inside…

PKK Ceasefire Extended for 1 Week

from Bianet :: English
The militant Kurdistan Workers Party announced to have extended the ceasefire declared on 13 August until their meeting in the coming week. The organization emphasized that they were not behind last week’s roadside bombing in Hakkari and blamed the Turkish government for disinformation.

Cease-fire ends amid deep-state, deep-PKK debates

from Hurriyet Dailynews
With the expiration of the outlawed PKK?s cease-fire expected Monday, the top echelons of Turkey?s military and the ruling government meet to discuss the situation in the Southeast and the repercussions of the land mine attack in Hakkari on Thursday. Reports say the military has already increased its presence in the border province

FATMA DİŞLİ ZIBAK – Masterminds of the Hakkari explosion

While the masterminds behind a roadside mine explosion in the eastern province of Hakkari last week that claimed the lives of nine civilians remain unknown, it is a fact that the incident dealt a severe blow to efforts to resolve Turkey?s long-standing Kurdish problem.

Hakkari, une province kurde sous très haute tension

from YOL (routes de Turquie et d’ailleurs) by anne

Que se passe-t-il dans la province d?Hakkari ? La tension déjà très forte depuis maintenant un an, vient de monter d?un cran. Comme prévu, c?est la province kurde qui a le plus massivement boycotté le référendum du 12 septembre (résultats ici ) .Moins de 7% des électeurs se sont rendus aux urnes. Seul le district de Semdinli, à la lisière de l?Iran et de l?Irak, a fait exception. Dans cette petite ville très religieuse, l?AKP possède encore un électorat, certes minoritaire (la municipalité comme toutes celles des villes de la province y est BDP – le parti kurde) et 30% des électeurs se sont déplacés, pour voter OUI – le même taux qu?à Diyarbakir. Partout ailleurs la population a massivement boycotté le référendum. 3% de votants à Yüksekova ! Et la plupart de ces rares électeurs sont probablement venus de l?extérieur (fonctionnaires, forces de l?ordre ?).

‘Deep PKK’ responsible for land mine attack, officials say

from Hurriyet Dailynews by ANKARA – Anatolia News Agency
The culprits of Thursday’s land mine attack in Hakkari were pro-violence dissidents within the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, Turkish officials said Saturday.

For a permanent cease-fire in the Kurdish problem

by ORAL ÇALIŞLAR – RADIKAL
Turkey gained a new vision with the referendum held on constitutional reforms on Sunday. Although the country has seized a vision of democracy along global standards, the Kurdish problem is still a serious problem affecting Turkey.

FATMA DİŞLİ ZIBAK – Time ripe for a solution to the Kurdish problem

Just as hope for a permanent peace in the country had increased due to an ongoing Kurdistan Workers? Party (PKK) cease-fire, the country was shocked on Thursday by a mine explosion in Hakkari that claimed the lives of nine civilians.
