TOBB President M. Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, in his message regarding the martyring of our soldiers in Şemdinli, Hakkari, said, “This heinous attack is perpetrated not just against our soldiers but against the heart of humanity and peace. Those who hope to benefit from terror and undertook this attack will never be forgiven by history.”
In his message, Hisarcıklıoğlu said:
“In Şemdinli County’s Dağlıca region, near the Iraq border of Hakkari, 8 soldiers were martyred with 16 more injured in a skirmish with PKK terrorists who attacked using large caliber weaponry earlier today.
The judgment of those who perpetrated this atrocity aimed at our soldiers and our unity and solidarity in the consciences and hearts which believe in the primary tenets of humanity will be severe. Sadly there remains not a single shred of peace or feelings of fraternity in those responsible for this attack.
On behalf of the business world, I pray for the grace of Allah upon our martyred soldiers, present my condolences to the families of the fallen and our great nation and pray for the speedy recovery of our wounded soldiers.”
