The PKK has waged a three-and-a-half decade insurgency against the Turkish state seeking independence, and more recently autonomy, for Turkey's Kurdish minority.
The conflict has left tens of thousands dead and is still continuing after the PKK halted a ceasefire in 2015.
That's pure, Western false-propaganda. The neocons repeat it over and over and over no matter how many times their called out for their blatant lies.
The PKK renounced violence. They didn't just establish a ceasefire. Also, it was Erdogan who attacked the PKK after the PKK had renounced violence. It was Erdogan who purposefully labelled a group that left the PKK to continue violence as still being in the PKK. Erdogan used that as an excuse to wipe out whole villages of Kurds who were being completely peaceful and working hard to be completely democratic within the Turkish system.
The neocons know all of this, but telling the truth just never fits in with the neocons agenda.
