Turkish soldiers deployed at the border to Rojava, West Kurdistan, continue committing cruelty against the civilians crossing the border, where 4 people have been killed during the past 4 weeks.
According to a report by Hawar News Agency (ANHA), 5 youths of Arab origin were tortured by Turkish soldiers who caught them while attempting to cross the border from Serekaniyê city of Cizîrê Canton into North Kurdistan last night.
Elî İbrahîm Husên (17), Umer Xidir (30), Hemadî Ebdulrezaq (19), Îsa Ebduletîf (17) and Ehmed Casim (16), from Til Xelef town of Serêkaniyê, were brutally battered by Turkish soldiers with chains and wooden sticks. The attack left the youths severely injured.
Soldiers also seized the phones of the youths and burnt the money, identity cards and all other belongings of theirs.
