Erdogan in US exposes YPG/PKK ringleader’s crimes

ANKARA 

The Turkish president on Wednesday showed a video to his U.S. counterpart and senators which documented crimes committed by the ringleader of YPG/PKK Ferhat Abdi Sahin, also known as Mazloum Kobani.

Fahrettin Altun, the Turkish communications director, shared the video on Twitter and wrote: “The video details the massacres committed by the terrorist code named Mazloum Kobane”.

On Wednesday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, during his visit to the U.S., said Sahin has caused the deaths of hundreds of Turkish people and is the adopted son of Abdullah Ocalan, the jailed leader of the PKK terrorist organization.

He added that it is “regrettable” that Sahin is taken seriously by Washington.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG/PKK is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK.
