Türkiye bids farewell to 5-year-old boy killed in YPG/PKK terror attack in Karkamis

Karatas' family and relatives, Gaziantep Governor Davut Gul, Mayor Fatma Sahin, and lawmakers attended the funeral.

Karatas lost his life after a rocket fired by the terrorist organization hit his house located in the Karkamis district center.

At least two people were killed in multiple rocket attacks by the terror group YPG/PKK in Gaziantep, the country’s interior minister said Monday.

The mortar shells hit a residential area and injured six people in the Karkamis district, Suleyman Soylu told reporters in the capital Ankara.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the terror group's Syrian offshoot.
