On the evening of the 25th October,1993 militants of the kurdish terroristic organization PKK striked the town of Yolalan, and savagely murdered 4 teachers and a two year old girl.
The attack, which was also admitted by PKK in their own press, happened after Adullah Öcalan’s intructions to murder all those with Turkish ID working in the region without a permit from PKK, especially teachers. The result of these instructions was violent murders of 4 teachers and a 2 years old girl by the PKK thugs.
The kurdish fascists first assared Geography teaher Adurraha Nafiz Özağrıaçık ad Religion/ Ethics teacher Ergin Komut with machine guns in front of the school, later found and murdered the couple Bayram and Yasemin, and their 2 years old daughter who were hiding in a house in the village of Düz. These people, regardless of the regional difficulties and threats to their lives, of whose only objective was bringing education to the children of the region, were savagely murdered by PKK terrorists, this massacre has been documented and accepted as described here by both the TR state, and PKK.
9 years after this massacre more details have been revealed in a book written by a PKK confesser; a kurdish worker of the health clinic (which was the first site visited by the assaulters) Celalettin Toktas persuaded the Özbağrıaçık and Komut families to be out of the building where they took refuge, and therefore caused their murders by the hands of PKK monsters. This person is now in a prison serving life sentence.
The names of the 4 martyr teachers of the Yolalan Massacre have been given to schools in our country, and a nursery school has been named after our Betül daughter who was murdered as shot down at the back at the age of 2.
They are all immortal for us.
