1 killed as curfew declared in 3 neighborhoods of Silvan

A 22-year-old man was killed during clashes between security forces and the youth wing of the terrorist Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK) after a curfew was declared in three neighborhoods of the Silvan district to fill in trenches that had been dug in the district center.
According to news agencies, the authorities imposed curfews in the Tekel, Mescit and Konak neighborhoods to carry out an operation to fill in the trenches dug by the Patriotic Revolutionist Youth Movement (YDG-H) and remove the barricades that they had built. The curfew went into force at 5 a.m. on Tuesday. It was not immediately clear when the curfew would be lifted.
Following the announcement of the curfew, sounds of gun shots echoed in the district center. Dogan news agency reported that 22-year-old Manduslandum Tayyar was killed during the clashes between security forces and YDG-H members. Although the curfew was declared in three neighborhoods, most shop keepers did not open their shops and the streets were emptied.
After a suicide bombing in Suruandc in ianliurfa province killed 33 activists and injured 100 more on July 20, clashes involving the Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK) have grown in number. Two police officers were killed by PKK members on July 22 in retaliation for Turkish authoritiesand’ perceived failure to prevent the Suruandc attack. The violence and PKK-led attacks further escalated when Turkey carried out air strikes on PKK bases in neighboring Iraq.
