HASAKAH, Rojava (Apr 25, 2017) – At 2 AM on Tuesday April 25, 2017, Turkish airplanes launched a large-scale attack on the headquarters of the General Command of the People's Defense Units (YPG) in Mount Karachok near the city of Derik, where there are also a media center, a local radio station, communication headquarters and some military institutions. This treacherous attack has led to the death and wounding of a number of our comrades. Fruther details in relation to their details will be released later on.
We as the People's Defense Units say that this cowardly attack will not discourage our determination and our free will to fight and confront terrorism. We also call on our people with all its components in Rojava to stand in line with its legitimate forces in the face of this blatant attack.
