Well Said @ismail demir @Turk Uzan and @Turther, P.K.K is a terrorist organization, can there be an excuse for terrorising people in that region, Threating, Burning, Bombing, Killing, Extortion, Kiddnaping.. Is this all for Kurdish Issue ??? We have every right to kill them all...

I guess no one will understand the suffering the cursed P.K.K terrorist organisation has and continues to inflict on innocent Turkish civilians, other than Turks. @ Anges: Yes, that would be a great new years present if all the P.K.K dropped dead on that day! If America can come half way across the world over Al Qeada, a 'terrorist' organisation which the C.I.A actually formed, controls and uses as a scapegoat at will, surely Turkiye has EVERY RIGHT to hunt down actual REAL terrorists, wake up!

Dear Agnes, Ofcourse its not that simple, killing them will not resolve "what so called as a Kurdish Problem". but there is definetly a hope out there, Turkey has changed

That kind of replicated statement by TAS force in fact has insulting Turkish People. You should have finished the PKK by now.

This was a cross border operation by the elite special forces called the Maroon Berets. Hail Turkish Armed Forces.

@agnes,history shows that the more you give rights to kurds, the more they attack you.Iraq gave to kurds most ethnic rights (education,constitution quota) at 1968.Turkey is the most democratic country from Iraq, iran, Syria until Iraq election.Most bloody kurdish uprising occur in Iraq, Turkey is the second.Kurds obey Assad Syria much even many of them did not have citizenship rights (they couldnot work in state, didnot get passaport).Not need to mention violation of personal rights of iran.

@ Xir Nuk, really? So it's not the PKK that's to blame for planning a terrorist attack, but WE for preventing it? Are you even serious? I am a 100% proud on our soldiers and what they did. You're hypocrisy is astonishing .. if the PKK wasn't bombing, attacking, kidnapping in the first place, there wouldn't be ANY of the killings. You can try and justify terrorism in anyway you want, but putting perfume and paint on a turd won't make any better.
