On 20th of June 1987, PKK attacked Pinarcik Village of Mardin where the majority of the residents were the families of “Temporary Villager Security Forces” (this department was organized by Turkish Government. All security forces were chosen from local villagers to fight against terrorists).
As a result of this attack 30 people, 16 of which were kids, were murdered by PKK.
Around 30 militants of PKK attacked Pinarcik Village (which was comprised of 16 families, 60 members in total). They not only murdered 30 innocent villagers, but also killed the farming animals and burnt the houses.
After the attack terrorists left the following flier in the Village:
“The employees of the fascist Turkey (referring to the Temporary Villager Security Forces), nothing can protect you from our bullets. Before getting involved into more crime against your own people (the vast majority of the population in South East Turkey are of Kurdish origins, including the Temporary Villager Security Forces) surrender to us and face our justice.”
PKK, whose atrocities indeed included slaying infants in their cradles, and the supporters of this group of murderers even today are trying to put the blame on the Turkish Arms Forces.
In contrast to their accusations, the responsibility of The Massacre of Pinarcik was admitted by PKK from the day first, and not only that, they have also been boasting about the massacre.
Let’s see what the official media of PKK said on the subject:

Well, what is Apo saying here? He is boasting about being a murderer of small kids:
· Let’s have a closer look at the incident for those who do not comprehend the above statement.
Despite not being accurate on the date, Pkk media has always admitted the responsibility fort his savage massacre, and published articles accordingly.
The reason Murderer Apo was given the nickname “Baby Slayer” was the Pinarcik Massacre, his statement regarding the massacre proves how fitting is the nickname.
Below you will see that Karayilan, one of the PKK leaders, is accepting Pinarcik Massacre and other massacres in his book “Anatomy Of A War”.
Karayilan Acknowledges the Massacres
Karayilan puts an end to the debates with admitting for the first time that PKK was the culprit of these massacres.
Regarding the massacres he accuses some of the Pkk commanders, and describes the events as amoral:
“To groups proceeding around Mardin, in unison, carried out attacks starting from Mardin till Botan. However, some of those attacks were executed wrongly, and to this day we are still critical of them.
Those attacks resulted with civilian deaths.There was no instruction of targetting civilians.
That was done solely through the group’s atig o their own initiative.
Under the name of acting as bands (gangs) in places like Pinarli, etc (*Here, he most likely means Pinarcik) they carried out assaults with the out-come of dead civilians, women, child aged people lying on the ground.
Obviously there was a situation of great divergence from the main objective. Inclination towards this kind of targets took place for the first time in Mardin. It is known that later on similar atrocities occured in Botan as well.”
For the massacres, Karayilan puts the blame on the group he calls by “Quartet Gang”, consisting of Hogir nicknamed Cemil Isik, Kor Cemal, Terzi Cemal and Semdin Sakik, and continues to tell how later they were all expelled from the organization. Karayilan’s self criticism does not end here. Again implying this “quartet gangs” he openly criticizes the assassinations by the organization.
PKK’s own description of the details regarding Pinarcik Massacre that left some civilians and children slayed
Translation: “The attack of Pinarcik exhibited realities which cannot be denied. A fully armed ARGK group of 80 encircled the village which is situated a few kms near Omerli, and exterminated the enemy. ARGK fighters showed a great tactical and combative spirit, and took the initiation for exterminating the enemy and seizing all the equipment of the occupiers. The nearby enemy forces were inefficient, and could not intervene for the scare of their own lives.”
The killings of women and children have been acknowledged by PKK for many times, Turkish courts have also proved the actual facts of the massacre. With all the evidence, those who are stil trying to put the blame on The State are frauds.
The only reality: Pkk, and Apo are child murderers. There is blood of babies, women, youngsters on their hands.
