Kurds withstand Turkish Airstrikes and massacres

I received the following news item:

Today in the northern kurdish City Suruc has taken place a massacre against members of the Federation of Socialist Youth Associations (SGDF) this morning.
An bomb explosion has killed a lot of young people and wounded many more. Around 300 young people were on the way to Kobanê to stay there for one week and to help to rebuilt the city.
We call you to organize international campaigns as a sign of solidarity and to protest against the massacre and the bloody policy of the AKP-dictatorship and the fascist ISIS Gangs on July 21 and 22.

With revolutionary greetings
International Bureau 

And when the US has congratulated Turkey for its role in stopping ISIS, this report comes out making a joke of Turkey's role in the region. Turkey is stuck in the pas trying to punish its own minority groups rather than fighting ISIS.  -សតិវ អតុ

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkish jets struck camps belonging to Kurdish militants in northern Iraq, authorities said Saturday, the first strikes since a peace deal was announced in 2013, and again bombed Islamic State positions in Syria.
The strikes in Iraq targeted the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, whose affiliates have been effective in battling the Islamic State group. The strikes further complicate the U.S.-led war against the extremists, which has relied on Kurdish ground forces making gains in Iraq and Syria.
A spokesman in Iraq for the PKK, which has been fighting Turkey for autonomy since 1984 and is considered a terrorist organization by Ankara and its allies, said the strikes likely spelled the end of the peace process.
