Assyria TV has just been in touch with Assyrians who still live in Azakh. The person who answered the phone could barely speak, and with tears in her voice she said Turkish security forces had stormed the house and she could not talk. Why the Turkish security forces stormed Assyrian houses is still unclear. For some time now there have been ongoing fighting between PKK guerrillas and Turkish security forces. As always Assyrians have been caught in the middle of something that does not have to do with them and have suffered. On 28 January it was the priest Yusuf Akbulut who ended up in the crossfire of fighting between PKK guerrillas and Turkish security forces. Many historic sites and churches have been destroyed because of fighting between the parties. Assyria TV are monitoring the developments and will return with more information.
