NEWS CENTER – Eastern Kurdistan Defense Units (YRK) Commander Şiyar Şevger commemorated the 12 guerrillas who were martyred in the city of Selasi Bawecanî in the Dalaho region of Kermanşan province on October 4, 2016, the Asos martyrs and Leşker Dilbirîn who was martyred in 2020.
Referring to the invading Turkish state’s attacks on Zap and Avaşîn, Şiyar Şevger saluted the guerrillas who displayed a historical resistance against these attacks. Emphasizing that the enemy who carried out the genocidal attacks against the Kurdish people will be defeated with resistance, Şiyar Şevger said, “The resistance of the guerrillas has neutralized the enemy’s plan. Our enemy wants to carry out the policy of genocide every day, and we fight to protect our people. Struggle is not without cost. We are exercising our right of defense on the basis of Leader Apo’s thought and philosophy.
In 2016, a group of our friends who fought against the Iranian state under the leadership of Commander Leshker Judi were martyred in the Dalaho region. Lashkar Judi was the commander of Dalaho province. Our friends were attacked and martyred while they were on duty. Heval Lashker Cudi fought all over Rojhilat. Leader Apo struggled in all areas of society to understand the truth. He grew up in a patriotic society. When the leadership was arrested, he joined the guerrilla ranks.
Tactically, as a provincial commander, he always organized himself and trained his friends on how to fight against the occupation. Our Caf people in the Dalaho region loved heval Lashker. This love further strengthened Heval Lashker’s bond with the people. The martyrdom of Comrade Leshker was a great loss for Rojhilat. But as his comrades, we will follow in his footsteps to the end. We will build its characteristics in our personality. We will fight until the end to realize the purpose of Martyr Leşker.”
Martyrdom as a result of betrayal
Speaking about the struggle of the guerrillas who were martyred in the Dalaho region, YRK Commander Şiyar Şevger continued: “Heval Elî Şêr, Brusk and Mêrxas were also among the martyred group. Elî Şêr was a friend from Amed. He took part in the national struggle in Rojhilat. He was always loved among his friends for his devotion and loyalty. He would participate in life without reckoning to improve tactically. He was always in search, constantly improving himself.
Heval Brusk was from the city of Merivan. He went to the mountains of Kurdistan at a young age to oppose the persecution of the Iranian regime. Heval Mêrxas was a friend from Wan. He also joined the struggle in Rojhilat at a young age. He had great love and devotion to Rojhilat. Because of this, he was very popular among his friends. Friends died as a result of betrayal. Those who betrayed their country cooperated with the Iranian state. Dozens of our friends were martyred in the Dalaho region, but let the enemies and collaborators know that we will definitely avenge our martyred friends.”
Rojhilat youth should protect their martyrs
Şiyar Şevger, who also commemorated Leşker Dilbirîn, who was martyred in 2019, said, “Heval Leşker was born in the resistance city Seqiz. Seqiz has a great struggle in its history. Just as Heval Rênas Roj fought against the occupation all over Kurdistan, Leshker heval followed in his footsteps and joined the Apoist movement. He did not know what tiredness was with the energy of youth. He was martyred in the ambush of the invading enemy in the city of Meriwan in 2019.
Again on August 8, 2020, 9 of our friends were martyred in the air attack organized by the invading Turkish state in the Asos region. 9 of our comrades who fought under the leadership of Commander Heval Özgür were martyred as a result of Turkish and KDP intelligence. 9 of our friends also participated in the struggle with love and devotion. For years, they have fought against the policy of genocide against the Kurdish people. We once again commemorate our martyrs who lost their lives in different places with respect and gratitude.
Heval Rûstem was also from Kamyaran. He was martyred in Xakûrkê after a great resistance. Our young people from Kamyaran need to protect the martyr Rûstem. Heval Simko was born in Bane. He gave the greatest struggle against the occupation. Again, Comrade Dilgeş was martyred in Gever, he was born in the city of Sine. These comrades were from Rojhilat. The youth of Rojhilat should also take care of these friends and follow in their footsteps,” he concluded.
