Amnesty: Turkey’s Campaign Against Kurds Is ‘Collective Punishment’

The Turkish government’s offensive against Kurdish militants “amounts to collective punishment” and is putting “tens of thousands of lives at risk,” according to Amnesty International, the latest rights group to criticize the crackdown.

Turkish forces in July launched a new campaign of airstrikes and ground operations in Kurdish neighborhoods in southeast Turkey, ending a two-year-old cease-fire between the government and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Although President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the assault is aimed at killing every “last terrorist” within the PKK, it has taken an increasing toll on the region’s civilian population.
