For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), Kurdish: Partiya Karkerên Kurdistan or پارتی کار کهرانی کوردستان. It was founded in 1978 with the main goal of a an autonomous Kurdistan. The Kurds are the largest ethnic group in the World without their own country. It’s also recognized by the UN, and U.S. as a terrorist organization.
Strange times we are living in when three EU women related to the PKK are shot execution style in Paris, France. It definitely sounds like a professional job, what country’s assassination squad would be motivated is the question. There are many who don’t want to see Kurdistan as their own state.
Here’s the rest of the story from Al Jazeera English. -Brandon
