21.12.19: Şehit Savaş Amed and Şehit Baran Dersim Revenge Units have released a communique claiming responsibility for actions carried out against the occupying Turkish police in the cities of Wan and Amed on December 13th, 15th and 19th. The actions were carried out in solidarity with Kurdish political prisoner and leader of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party), Abdullah Öcalan and against the International Conspiracy that resulted in his capture in 1999.

Excerpts from the Revenge Units statement about the actions in Wan:

“On December 13th, we carried out a sabotage action with a home-made explosive device against an enemy vehicle traveling in the Edremit Elmali area in Wan. Despite the destruction of the enemy vehicle, we were unable to clarify any injured or dead enemies.”

“On December 15th, hand-made explosives were thrown at enemy contractors in the Xaçort region of Wan.”

On December 19th, the Şehit Savaş Amed Revenge Unit organized a protest action against the Turkish police who were occupying a school in the Şehitlik district in Yenişehir, Amed and using it as an operations base. According to the Revenge Unit’s statement, the action was carried out with sound bombs and fireworks.
