“In the morning hours of September 13, the invading Turkish army launched a wide-ranging invasion operation in the villages of Kelê, Nebar, Xurakana Jêr and Xurakana Jor in the Esendere town of Hakkari’s Gever (Yüksekova) district. During the operation, intense clashes took place between our forces and the invaders.
Our forces, which intervened in the invaders who wanted to advance in the field, organized effective actions targeting the operation units. In these actions, a total of 7 invaders, including one high rank, were punished and many occupants were injured.
