An investigation has been launched against the medical personnel who treated the wounded in Cizre in Turkey’s southeastern province of Şırnak during the period of curfews in the region in 2015 and 2016.

As part of the investigation conducted by the Şırnak Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office, the police raided some residences. Physician N.S. and medical personnel Ş.E., A.K. and A.T., who reportedly work at a private hospital, have been taken into custody.

The four medical personnel are charged with treating the people who were allegedly from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and came to the hospital where the personnel were working at that time.

Their interrogation was still continuing as of 5 p.m. today (August 2).

What happened in Cizre?

While the curfew declared in the district of Cizre in Turkey’s southeastern province of Şırnak on December 14, 2015 was still in effect, Minister of Interior of the time Efkan Ala announced on February 11, 2016 that the operations of blockade were ended.

However, the curfew in Cizre was rearranged in a way to be in force at nights as of March 2, 2016 and entry to/ exit from the district was prohibited until March 2, 2016.

After the curfew was lifted in the neighborhoods of Cudi and Sur in Cizre, 177 dead bodies, 25 of which belonged to children, were found in the wreckages and debris of mainly 3 buildings and the houses in their vicinity.

While the 103 of the deceased could be identified, 74 people were put to rest without being identified. The total number of the dead has been announced as 189.

According to the report of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), almost all of the dead bodies were beyond recognition because they were either burned or decomposed.

The remnants of human bones and military ammunition were found in the basements. Forensic Experts also found remnants of human bones of children in the basements.
