An interesting piece of statistical information for you from the blogger, 'Children of the Sun'.
Turkish Ministry of Defence has published the statistics of dead security forces. Oral Çalışlar recently wrote an article about it. Of course, the data wasn't published widely in Turkish media. The data presents which cities the dead security forces are from. It turns out that in terms of highest losses, six of the top ten cities are Kurdish. The security forces from Kurdish cities (Kurds) are sent to the front lines to fight the PKK. The fascist regime's policy of pitting Kurds against Kurds continues regardless. A Kurd is worthless to the state even if he sides with the state. Here is the data for top ten cities:
|City||Number of Dead Security Forces from the City||City Population (2007 census)|
|1. Şırnak (Şirnex)||302||416,001|
|3. Hakkâri (Colemerg)||264||246,469|
|5. Diyarbakır (Amed)||233||1,460,714|
|7. Mardin (Mêrdîn)||199||745,778|
|8. Sivas (Sêwas)||198||638,464|
|10. Van (Wan)||177||979,671|
of Killed Security Forces from the Kurdish
Cities in top 10 and sum of their populations:
| 1,373|| 4,487,097|
Number of Killed Security Forces from Non-Kurdish Cities in top 10 and sum of their populations:
|Percentage of Losses from Kurdish Cities (in top 10)||59.54|
For the top-10 cities which gave the highest loss of security forces, Kurds make up 60% of losses. I actually wouldn't be surprised if it was higher because we know there are millions of Kurds living in cities like Istanbul and Adana. Unfortunately the identity of security forces originating from those cities are not available to the man on the street but I am sure TSK takes their identities into considerations before deciding where to send those people. After all pitting Kurds against Kurds is one skill the fascist regime has mastered.
