The neighborhoods of Akandcayurt, Aiaiiturali, Baiakli, andcay, Damlatepe, Ganduzelce, Horsel, Kaledibi, Karapilyar, Mezartarlasi, Siraevler, Taiburun and Yukari Turali in Hani, and Aiilcik, Akandcapinar, Ayaz, Birlik, Boyluca, Elmadere, ErginkandOy, iakan, ienlik, iabek, TuzlakandOy and Uysal in Lice were placed under curfew as of 5 a.m. on Friday.
Numerous civilians have been killed during clashes between security forces and the terrorist PKK in southeastern towns and cities since late July. Curfews, some of which have lasted for more than a week, were imposed on several tense districts in the provinces of Diyarbakir, Hakkari, Mardin, iirnak and Van. According to a recent report released by the Human Rights Association (iHD) in October, more than 100 civilians have been killed in the clashes in the region since late July.
Turkey began pounding PKK targets in southeast Anatolia and northern Iraq on July 24 after two police officers were killed by the terrorist group apparently in retaliation for a suicide bombing on July 20 that killed 33 pro-Kurdish activists and was blamed on the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Violence has escalated sharply since then, with the PKK stepping up attacks on security forces in southeast Anatolia. The terrorist group has also been blocking many roads in the region.
