The stance towards PKK's terror attacks and supportive comments by some members of pro-Kurdish political parties in Turkey is noteworthy.
Members of the People’s Democratic Party (HDP), which passed the 10 percent threshold in the June 7 general election and took 80 seats in the parliament, as well as members of the Democratic Party of Regions (DBP), which has an active role in local government in eastern and southeastern Turkey, have made supportive comments about the terrorist organization PKK.
The comments and behavior of HDP and DBP politicians, which waited to call on the PKK to lay down its arms during the solution Process show these politicians stand beside the PKK.
Turkey launched the solution process in 2013 to end the 30-year conflict with the PKK, which has claimed the lives of more than 40,000 people.
The renewal of PKK's terrorist attacks in July marked the end of the fragile two-and-a-half year lull to fighting.
