Şehit Çiyager – Şehit Zeryan Vengeance Units have claimed responsibility via a written statement for an action on October 12th using home-made bombs in the 75th Anniversary Selatin Tunnel on the Izmir-Aydın Motorway (1).
Vengeance Units Claim of Responsibility:
As part of the ongoing self-defense actions carried out by Vengeance Units, Şehit Çiyager – Şehit Zeryan Vengeance Units carried out an action using home-made bombs on October 12 in the 75th Anniversary Selatin Tunnel on the Izmir-Aydın Motorway.
We carried out this action in response to the invasion attacks by the genocidal Turkish state against Rojava. As a result of our action, the Izmir-Aydın Motorway was closed for hours.
As long as the barbaric invaders of the Turkish state continue to carry out massacres and rain bombs on the Kurdish people in Kurdistan, the metropolises of Turkey will not be able to resume a normal life. This is a genocidal war launched by the Turkish state against the Kurdish people. While the Kurdish people are resisting the occupation with their anger and determination, we as self-defense fighters of the Kurdish people promise to continue carrying out retaliation attacks against the invaders in their workplaces, their homes and on the street, anywhere and at any time.
