PKK terrorists abuse, rape female members

The PKK terrorist organization is not only known for its activities against civilians but also for molestation and rape scandals within the group.

According to testimonies obtained by Anadolu Agency, the PKK terror group does not only destroy social structures, but it also corrupts and degenerates structures that undermine the identity of women in their own ranks.

The testimonies of women terrorists, who have been captured by Turkish security forces or escaped from the terrorist organization, revealed the use of sexual abuse and rape by the PKK terrorists on fellow female members and children.

In the testimony to the judicial authorities, a female member of the PKK, identified by the initials A.L., said a male PKK terrorist abused her physically and verbally and tried to rape her.

She noted that not only her but other women in the organization were also subjected to abuses and harassment, saying that's the reason she decided to leave the terror ranks.

Another female member, identified by the initials B.B., said in her testimony that not only women but also nearly 30 children -- including girls and boys -- between the ages of 9 and 14 at the youth battalion of the PKK were sexually abused.

She said she had witnessed some girls were brought to local hospitals for abortion.

In another testimony, a female terrorist, identified by the initials M.T., said the high-ranking terrorists had raped and sexually assaulted female members of the PKK.

The incidents were covered up due to the involvement of the high-ranking members of the terrorist group.

Another female insider, identified by initial, K.A., also said that the terrorist members in commanding positions sexually abuse the female terrorists of the organization.

"There is no power to prevent this," she said.

'Ugly face'

She said that she knows many women, who fled the terrorist organization after seeing its "ugly face.

Another terrorist, identified by the initials Y.S., said women are used as sexual objects by the male terrorist members.

She said that the sexual abuses are not only limited to women, adding: "They even rape little children abducted from Syria," she added.

Earlier, a PKK terrorist, who surrendered to Turkish security forces on Sept. 9, confessed that the group would give drugs to minors, especially young girls, and then sexually abuse them.

In August, Anadolu Agency also compiled information about a number of young people who were subjected to such abuse and ended up committing suicide. Moreover, those who resisted sexual abuse were executed by the terrorist group.

In one case, a young woman, named Dilan, committed suicide using a hand grenade after being abused by PKK ringleader Murat Karayilan.

In another case, a 19-year-old terrorist, identified by the initials S.A., was executed by the PKK after she complained of rape. She is said to have been gang raped by 12 PKK members in a cell.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and EU.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
