Did the Turkish President’s Security Detail Attack Protesters in Washington? What the Video Shows

The New York Times reviewed videos and photos to track the actions of 24 men, including armed members of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security detail, who attacked protesters in Washington last week. Many of the protesters were American citizens.

The men kicked people lying on the ground and put a woman in a chokehold just a mile from the White House. They outnumbered the protesters nearly two to one.

The State Department has condemned the episode, and some American lawmakers have called for the men to be prosecuted. But none have been charged with a crime. Here’s what video of the main actors shows about the identities of the men and the roles they played in the clash.

Ten of the men who attacked protesters appear to be part of a formal security detail. They dressed in dark suits, and they wore in-ear radio receivers, Turkish breast pins and lanyards with identification cards. At least four of the men carried guns.

Two of these men charged protesters and appeared to start the main part of the fight.

We used five camera angles to track the movements of these two men throughout the melee. One man’s identity card shows Turkish and American flags and Turkey’s presidential seal, suggesting he is a member of the delegation visiting the United States.

Airstrikes by the Turkish military on Kurdish groups in Syria and Iraq on Tuesday has put the operation to capture the Islamic State (IS) stronghold Raqqa in danger, according to statements from Syrian Kurdish leaders.

Turkish airstrikes targeted the positions of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), the main group in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is spearheading the assault on Raqqa, killing at least 18 early Tuesday morning, Reuters reported.

Syrian Kurdish officials of the Kurdish-led autonomous administration in northern Syria have condemned the dozen or so strikes and said they could put the operation in danger if international forces did not put up a stance.

Salih Muslim: We are expecting a statement from the coalition

Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) co-leader Salih Muslim said the airstrikes would have a negative impact on the Raqqa operation, adding, “Turkish warplanes cannot fly in the area without the coalition’s approval. The coalition needs to make a statement. Did the coalition have knowledge of the attack? How do they view this development?”

Ilham Ehmed: Attack occurred as Raqqa operation reaches final stage

Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) co-leader Ilham Ehmed, who spoke from northeastern Derik city’s Karakoch area, which airstrikes targeted, also emphasised that the coalition needed to make its stance clear.

“While the YPG is participating in the Wrath of Euphrates Operation to liberate Raqqa, Turkey is attacking our centres. We do not accept any airstrikes on our forces, whether they be Turkish, Russian or Syrian.”

Fawza Yousif: We will protect our land

A leading member of the North Syria Democratic Federation Executive Council, Fawza Yousif said Kurdish forces would stop the Raqqa operation and instead defend themselves against Turkey if the coalition and US did not stop Ankara’s attacks, Kurdish agency Roj News reported.

Erdogans neuer Feldzug beginnt

http://de.share-your-photo.com/img/610bac7b7e.jpg

Türkische Kampfjets bombardieren das Jesidengebiet Sengal im Nordirak und YPG-Stellungen in Rojava.

Vom 9. April an hielten wir uns zwei Wochen im nordirakischen Sengal auf. Wir recherchierten zum illegalen Gebrauch deutscher Waffen gegen die dort lebenden Jesiden durch den kurdischen Warlord Mesud Barzani. Als wir ankamen, war einer der ersten Orte, den uns die Kolleg*innen vor Ort stolz zeigten, der Bahce Serokatî, der Abdullah-Öcalan-Garten. Das Denkmal erinnert an jene Frauen und Männer der PKK und der jesidischen Widerstandseinheiten YBS, die im Herbst 2014 im Kampf gegen die Terrormiliz Islamischer Staat (IS, Daesh) fielen, um einen Genozid an der jesidischen Minderheit zu verhindern.

Das Denkmal gibt es nicht mehr. In der Nacht zum 25. April flogen türkische Kampfjets parallel Angriffe auf Gebiete im Nordirak, im Sengal und in Rojava. Sie zerstörte ebenfalls eine YPG-Basis in Karacok, zwei Radio-Sender – einen davon in Rojava, einen im Sengal –, und bombardierten die Bergregionen in Haftanin, Gare und Kandil.

Die genauen Ausmaße der Attacke können wir zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung dieses Textes noch nicht feststellen. Sicher ist aber, dass es Gefallene und Verwundete gab. Sicher ist auch: Der Angriff war lange absehbar und soll den Aufakt zu einer länderübergreifenden Kampagne gegen die kurdische Befreiungsbewegung bilden. Überrascht muss niemand tun: Recep Tayyip Erdogan und seine Handpuppe Binali Yildirim haben die Aktion seit Monaten öffentlich angekündigt, inklusive Datum. Die internationale Öffentlichkeit, die sich so herzzerreissend um die Jesiden sorgte, als es darum ging, Waffenexporte in den Irak zu rechtfertigen, schwieg.

Schon jetzt kann man einige Feststellungen zur Einordnung der Bombenkampagne treffen. Erstens: Es wird nicht bei vereinzelten Provokationen bleiben. Die Türkei zieht Panzer an der Grenze zum Irak zusammen, vestärkt ihre Truppen in der Kurdischen Autonomieregion im Nordirak und bringt Kollaborationskräfte in Stellung.

Zweitens: Die Attacken nutzen direkt dem Islamischen Staat. Denn die kurdischen Volksverteidigungskräfte YPG/YPJ und verbündete Kräfte sind derzeit dabei, die syrische Kleinstadt Taqba zu befreien, der Belagerungsring um die Daesh-Hauptstadt Raqqa ist geschlossen. Bei Taqba gibt es seit Tagen heftige Kämpfe. Die türkischen Bombardements helfen dem Islamischen Staat, Luft zu holen, weil sich YPG/YPJ nun um eine weitere Front kümmern müssen.

Drittens: Die USA haben entweder ihre Zustimmung zu (begrenzten) Operationen gegeben oder müssten jetzt scharf reagieren. Realistisch ist ersteres. „Jeder hier weiß, dass es ein taktisches Spiel ist“, sagt der Internationalist Serhildan Sengali in Qamishlo gegenüber LCM. „Manchmal macht Washington uns Zugeständnisse, manchmal der Türkei. Sicher, die USA wollen, dass wir nach Raqqa gehen. Aber sie wollen auch nicht, dass wir zu stark werden. Deshalb erlauben sie der Türkei in bestimmten Ausmaßen Operationen. Und Kandil wollen sowieso beide beseitigen.“

Viertens: Der Krieg rund um Sengal wird mit deutschen Panzern geführt werden. Denn die dortigen KDP-Milizen haben welche und sie kooperieren mit Erdogan. Sie haben sie am 3. März gegen Jesiden eingesetzt und sie werden es wieder tun, wenn Barzani keinen Positionswechsel vollzieht oder ihn andere kurdische Parteien daran hindern.

Fünftens: Der Angriff zeigt auch erneut, wie sich Angela Merkels „Flüchtlingsdeal“ mit der Türkei in der Realität auswirkt. Ankara verhindert systematisch jede Normalisierung im Sengal oder Rojava, die dafür sorgen könnte, dass Menschen hier bleiben oder zurückkehren. Der Effekt der Attacken: Neue Fluchtbewegungen.

Die heutigen Bombenangriffe lassen für die kommenden Monate unruhige Zeiten erwarten. Erdogan will seine Diktatur nach innen wie außen absichern, sein Hauptgegner dabei ist die kurdische Befreiungsbewegung. Er hat betont: Er will sie „vernichten“. Das weltweite Schweigen zu Massakern wie in den Städten Cizre und Nusaybin im vergangenen Jahr, hat ihn ermutigt, dabei keine Rücksicht mehr auf zivile Opfer zu nehmen.

Kemal Kurkut survived Isis suicide bomb but couldn’t survive Turkish police

http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/anigif1uc9x10nv8k.gif
Kemal Kurkut was a fine arts student at the Malatya University and could play several instruments, including the violin.

The young student who was shot dead by a police officer ahead of the Kurdish Newroz celebration in Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province, had survived the Ankara train station massacre perpetrated by the Islamic State (IS) group in October 2015, which killed 103 civilians.

New details continue coming to light in the killing of fine arts student Kemal Kurkut, who died after being shot by police at a checkpoint in Kurdish-majority city Diyarbakir on Tuesday.

Forced to strip by police

According to eyewitnesses, the young man was forced to strip by police at the checkpoint and verbally abused, after which he ran away and returned with a knife he stole from a nearby butcher’s shop.

Speaking to Dihaber News Agency, the young man’s brother Ferhat Kurkut corroborated statements saying, “the police point their guns at him and he tells them, ‘I have nothing on me’, they make him take his clothes off, he argues with them but does what is told. After he is forced to take his vest off he suffers a nervous breakdown. That’s when it all happens.”

Survived Isis suicide bomb attack

The victim’s cousin, also called Kemal, told Dihaber that the young man suffered trauma after experiencing the death of more than 100 people in the twin suicide bomb attack at a peace rally in Ankara in 2015.

“He wasn’t injured physically, but spiritually he collapsed after that incident. He became introverted, quiet and withdrawn. When we asked him what he had experienced he would just say, ‘People were ripped to pieces, their blood was everywhere.’ People’s blood has also sprayed on to him. He couldn’t get over it.”

The cousin called the shooting an “extrajudicial killing” and said the family wanted the person responsible to be found and punished.

Violation of right to life

The Diyarbakir Bar Association and Turkey’s Human Rights Association (IHD) also made statements calling the incident “an outright violation of the right to life.”

The Diyarbakir Bar Association criticised the local governorate’s statement, which had said Kurkut had been shot due to suspicions of being a suicide bomber and having a bomb in his bag. The association said that images, eyewitness statements and later developments had proven this not to be the case.

Reports pointed out that Kurkut was running away from police and had not attacked them at any point when he was shot. The area he was running towards was empty with three hours until the start of celebrations, Dihaber said.

Clothes and poems in bag

According to family members there were clothes and poetry books in the student’s bag, which was in the possession of police when the shooting occurred.

The opposition People’s Democratic (HDP) Party organised a press conference on Thursday and called the killing “murder.”

HDP spokesperson Osman Baydemir said the incident had been engineered by police to prevent the Newroz celebration and provoke large scale violence.

Commenting on the government’s silence so far, Baydemir added, “By ignoring this murder the prime minister, the justice minister are also responsible” during a visit to Kurkut’s bereaved family.

Another HDP lawmaker, Ahmet Yildirim, went on social media to vent his anger, saying:

“If this sensitivity had been shown in the cases of real suicide bombers hundreds of people wouldn’t have died in the past 2 years. My respects to this beautiful person [Kemal Kurkut].”

Family prevented from washing corpse

Criticism was also directed at the AKP government administered Battalgazi District Municipality in eastern city Malatya, where Kurkut was buried.

According to family members, municipality workers cut the morgue’s water to prevent the washing of the young man’s corpse, didn’t allow for him to buried next to his father and blocked a funeral vehicle belonging to the municipality from carrying his coffin.

Family persecuted for being Kurdish Alevis

Uncle Yusuf Kurkut condemned the actions saying it was because they belonged to the persecuted Alevi and Kurdish community in the country.

Uncle Yusuf Kurkut told Cumhuriyet daily, “They [the government] said ‘democracy’ but where is it? They said ‘equality’ but where is it? How can you shoot an innocent 20 year old? What is our crime? I am an Alevi, this is my crime. I am Kurdish, this is my crime. I am poor, this is my crime. If there is justice, where is it?”

Extrajudicial killings, forced disappearances

At least 10,000 people are thought to have been killed in extrajudicial killings (enforced disappearances) by governmental forces without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process since the 1990’s in Turkey. Most of the incidents occurred at the height of the war between the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and Turkish army.

However the procedure has continued under the tenure of the Erdogan government, with hundreds of civilians being killed since a return to clashes in 2015. Turkish authorities deny killing civilians and have called those killed “terrorists.”

Turquie : un étudiant abattu par la police lors des célébrations du nouvel an kurde

Selon les autorités, le jeune homme, venu participer aux festivités de Newroz à Diyarbakir, dans le sud-est de la Turquie, avait refusé de se soumettre aux contrôles et était en possession d’un couteau.

Kemal Kurkut, 23 ans, étudiant à l’université de Malatya, était venu tout spécialement à Diyarbakir, la « capitale » de la région kurde de Turquie, pour participer aux festivités de Newroz, mardi 21 mars. Arrivé à 300 mètres de l’esplanade où la fête battait son plein, il a été abattu par des officiers de police qui l’ont ensuite décrit comme un forcené.

La mort du jeune homme illustre combien la situation reste tendue dans les régions kurdes du sud-est de la Turquie. Célébrée ce jour-là dans une vingtaine de villes en Turquie, la fête de Newroz s’est globalement déroulée dans le calme et sous étroite surveillance policière.

Sezgin Tanrikulu, député du parti républicain du peuple (CHP, social-démocrate, premier parti d’opposition) au Parlement turc, a demandé des comptes au gouvernement à propos de la mort de l’étudiant. « Pourquoi a-t-il été tué quand il aurait pu être neutralisé par les centaines d’officiers de police déployés sur le site ? », a-t-il interrogé à l’occasion d’une session du Parlement, jeudi 23 mars.
Prises de vue effacées

Selon la préfecture de Diyarbakir, l’étudiant a proféré des menaces envers les policiers après avoir refusé de se soumettre aux contrôles. Huseyin Aksoy, le préfet, a assuré que le jeune homme était en possession d’un couteau et d’un sac en plastique dans lequel les policiers craignaient que se trouve un engin explosif. Mais des photos de la scène, publiées par l’agence de presse locale Dicle, montrent Kemal Kurkut, torse nu, sans aucun sac en sa possession.

Des témoins ont affirmé que les policiers avaient tiré en l’air à plusieurs reprises avant de faire feu sur l’étudiant qui avait fait fi de leurs avertissements. Grièvement blessé, il a été transporté à l’hôpital où il est mort quelques minutes plus tard.

Selon le député d’opposition Sezgin Tanrikulu, les policiers ont alors contraint la plupart des photographes et vidéastes présents sur le lieu du drame à effacer leurs prises de vues.

Aux yeux d’Osman Baydemir, député du Parti de la démocratie des peuples (HDP, prokurde), il s’agit d’une « exécution extrajudiciaire ». « Nous réclamons la mise en examen des auteurs de cet assassinat », a déclaré le député lors d’une conférence presse à Diyarbakir, jeudi. « Il s’agit d’un triste accident », a assuré le préfet Aksoy, assurant que toute la lumière serait faite.

The half naked young man killed by the police “on suspicion of a suicide bomber” in the Newroz celebrations in Amed has been identified as university student Kemal Kurkut. Kurkut’s body was received by his family to be buried in Malatya. The family refused the allegations that he was a suicide bomber.

The half naked young man killed by the police “on suspicion of a suicide bomber” in the Newroz celebrations in Amed has been identified as university student Kemal Kurkut, born in Adıyaman. Kurkut was a student in the İnönü University Fine Arts Faculty Department of Music. He lived in Malatya. His body was taken from the Malatya Institute of Forensic Medicine by his family to be buried.

Kurkut’s funeral will be held today in Malatya’s Batalgazi district.

FAMILY DENIED ALLEGATIONS

Dihaber contacted the Kurkut family, who denied the allegations made by the Diyarbakır Governorate that “The police intervened because there was a possibility that the man who ran into the grounds with a knife in his hand, saying ‘I have a bomb in my pack, I will kill you all’ was a suicide bomber.” The family said their son went to Amed to attend the Newroz celebrations.

HOW WAS HE SHOT?

Meanwhile, photographs of the half naked Kemal Kurkut being shot have emerged.

The photographs show that a half naked Kemal Kurkut had an argument with the police at the Newroz Park checkpoint on Evrim Alataş Avenue. Then he passed the checkpoint and started to walk towards the grounds, which was when the police shot Kemal Kurkut.

Kurkut ran some 10-15 meters, clutching his wound, then fell down behind the water cannon on the side of the road. Kurkut was hospitalized by the ambulance that arrived some 10 minutes later, and lost his life there.

The police controlled the cameras of journalists in the scene and made them format the memory cards.

Kemal Kurkut

Während sich gestern in Amed etwa 1 Million Menschen sammelten und das Newroz-Fest begingen, wurde am Rande der Feierlichkeiten ein junger Mann von Polizisten ermordet. Noch am Abend lancierten türkische Medien eine Erklärung des örtlichen Gouverneurs dem zu Folge es sich „um einen mutmaßlichen Selbstmordattentäter“ gehandelt habe, „der gerufen habe „in meiner Tasche ist eine Bombe, ich sprenge euch alle in die Luft“. Anschließend hätte er sich mit einer Tasche und einem Messer in der Hand der Durchsuchung entzogen, und habe versucht, in die Menge zu laufen. Bevor er diese habe erreichen können wäre er mit Schüssen durch die Polizei gestoppt worden.

Nun sind Bilder aufgetaucht, sie wurden von dihaber aufgenommen, die einen ganz anderen Hergang der Ereignisse belegen. Demnach wurde der junge Mann durchsucht. Auf den Bildern ist er zur Hälfte entkleidet und ohne jegliches Gepäck zu sehen, in seinen Händen ist eine kleine Pet-Flasche Wasser zu sehen. In der anderen hält er zwar ein Messer, allerdings ohne damit irgend eine drohende Handlung zu vollziehen. Als es zur Diskussion kommt und er sich durch Flucht zu entziehen versucht, wird er von einem Polizisten, der etwa 3 bis 4 Meter von ihm entfernt steht, hinterrücks niedergeschossen. Der junge Mann wird verletzt, hält sich die Verletzung mit der Hand, läuft aber weiter. Nach weiteren 10–15 Metern bricht er zusammen. Im Krankenhaus verstirbt er. Bei dem jungen Mann handelt es sich um Kemal Kurkut, einem Kunststudenten, dessen Familie ursprünglich aus Adıyaman stammt. Er war extra aus Malatya für das Newrozfest angereist.

VIDÉO DE L‘EXÉCUTION D‘UN KURDE PAR LA POLICE TURQUE

Le 21 mars, la police turque a exécuté un jeune kurde près de la place où avait lieu les célébrations du nouvel an kurde (Newroz) à Amed.
La police turque a prétendu que le jeune homme avait un sac à dos et qu‘il ne voulait pas qu‘on le fouille et qu‘ils avaient peur qu‘il transporte une bombe sur lui.

Les photos et les images vidéos montrent clairement qu‘il n‘avait pas de sac et qu‘il était torse nu pour bien montrer qu‘il n‘avait rien sur lui. Le jeune homme essaie de s‘éloigner mais ne s‘enfuit pas; alors que la police turque décrit presque une course poursuite.
Au pire des cas, quand bien même il aurait eu un sac, il ne l‘a plus. Les policiers l‘auraient donc récupéré. Donc, zéro problème, non ?

Mais plutôt que d‘appréhender un Kurde, c‘est plus facile de le tuer n‘est-ce pas ?
Et puis c‘est devenu tellement simple et naturel depuis les massacres de Cizre, Nusaybin, Sur, Roboski, Gever, Şırnak,… On ne peut pas leur reprocher d‘avoir la gâchette facile. C‘est une habitude aujourd‘hui.

De plus il n‘y a pas de quoi avoir peur des représailles. L‘Etat turc a voté l‘année dernière une loi protégeant ses militaires et ses policiers contre tout procès, quelle qu‘en soit la raison.

C‘est ainsi qu‘une fois de plus, qu‘un Kurde fût tué sans que personne ne soit inquiété…

U.N. Accuses Turkey of Killing Hundreds of Kurds

http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/11turkeysuperjj9c1o0v6x8.jpg

GENEVA — Turkey’s military and police forces have killed hundreds of people during operations against Kurdish rebels in southeastern Turkey, the United Nations said on Friday in a report that listed summary killings, torture, rape and widespread destruction of property among an array of human rights abuses.

The report, by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, details how operations by the Turkish infantry, artillery, tanks and possibly aircraft drove up to half a million people from their homes over a 17-month period from July 2015 to the end of 2016.

Though the report is focused on the conduct of security forces in southeastern Turkey, the 25-page document underscores the deepening alarm of the United Nations over the measures ordered by Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, since a failed coup attempt last July.

The state of emergency Mr. Erdogan imposed after the coup attempt appeared to “target criticism, not terrorism,” Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, said here on Tuesday.

The Turkish government declined to comment on the report.

Critics of Mr. Erdogan charge that he called off a truce with the Kurds in 2015 to stoke nationalist sentiments after his party fared poorly in parliamentary elections. After the failed coup, he used his enhanced emergency powers to crack down on Kurdish political leaders, intellectuals and others who voiced support for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or P.K.K., which is considered a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.

The report said measures taken by the government in the southeast since the failed coup, including arrests of parliamentarians, mass dismissals of officials and closing of Kurdish-language media, had been aimed at suppressing dissent in general and opposition parties in particular.

Mr. al-Hussein said he was “particularly concerned by reports that no credible investigation has been conducted into hundreds of alleged unlawful killings, including women and children.” He called for an independent inquiry without restrictions, noting that his investigators had been denied access to the Kurdish areas.

The report said that about 2,000 people had died in security operations in the southeast, citing information provided by the government. That included close to 800 members of the security forces and 1,200 others who the report said “may or may not” have been involved in violent action against the government.

The Turkish authorities were acting in a difficult security environment, the report acknowledged, citing attacks, killings and kidnappings by the P.K.K.

Nevertheless, by compiling information from interviews with victims and their relatives and by using satellite imagery, investigators for the United Nations verified a variety of abuses by the security forces, among them extrajudicial killings, disappearances, torture, violence against women and the prevention of access to medical care, food and water.

Investigators found that many of the worst abuses occurred during curfews, when the movement of people was restricted and entire neighborhoods were cut off for days at a time.

Witnesses interviewed in the town of Cizre, along the Tigris River in the southeast, described “apocalyptic” scenes of destruction. Investigators were able to document at least 189 people who were trapped for weeks in basements without food, water, medical aid or electricity before dying in fires started by artillery shelling by security forces. Ambulances were prevented from entering the area, causing deaths that could have been avoided.

Many of the victims simply disappeared in the wholesale destruction of large residential areas carried out by the military, which attacked systematically with heavy weapons, including bombing strikes, the report said. The destruction peaked in August.

Investigators also reported that the authorities refused to investigate civilian deaths, accusing residents of supporting terrorism. The family of one woman who disappeared in Cizre was given three small pieces of charred flesh identified through DNA testing, investigators reported. When a sister of the missing woman then tried to start legal proceedings, she was charged with terrorism offenses.

The United Nations said the report released on Friday would be the first of a series produced by the human rights office, whether or not its investigators were granted the access they needed.
