Turkish state has launched an operation with tanks, armored cars and 10 thousand military in towns across mainly Kurdish region in December, 2015. The reason of these operations was to lift barricades and fill ditches created by Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and The Patriotic Revolutionary Youth Movement (YDG-H) with the motivation of autonomy across Kurdish region.
The operation is still continuing, till now more than 7000 people lost their lives according to Turkish Army. A lot more people found themselves homeless, most of the houses were emptied due to the curfew in the cities where the operation continues. In following months Turkish Government is planning to extend the operation.
