Turkish assaults on Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) targets have resulted in the death of scores of innocent civilians, and intolerable living conditions for civilians living in conflict areas under bombardment, Osman Isci, spokesman for the Human Rights Association (HRA), told Radio Sputnik.
"Their right to life is violated, their right to health is violated because injured people or ill people cannot go to hospital and their rights to education and work are violated," said Isci.
"Some of them were killed by security forces, some of them were killed due to bomb explosions, some of them were killed by militants as well."
"Life conditions are severe, people have no chance to go out, people fear because this violent atmosphere affects everyone, or almost everyone in the region because although there are four or five ongoing curfews, the whole region is under attack."
"We are trying to document these violations on a daily basis but unfortunately due to this ongoing violence and blockade from the authorities we are not allowed to enter this area."
