As if the State turned its back to us. 40 percent of population in Şırnak remain homeless, houses are destroyed. There are many problems, we want those problems to be resolved as soon as possible. We want the President and Prime Minister himself come here and see the condition of Şırnak. Maybe the President himself is unaware of this but our Governor brought the following of atrocity that PKK and HDP did to us. After 8 months passed, still police come and say there is curfew, don’t get to the streets. We want the problems of Şırnak to be resolved right away.” (ILKHA)
