Unfortunately we lost Personnel Non-Commissioned Officer Cihan GECIT. He fell martyr due to a traffic accident in Sirnak. May Allah accept his martyrdom!

Security forces killed a top wanted PKK terrorist in a counterterrorism operation in Turkey’s southeastern Şanlıurfa province, Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu said Tuesday.

The militant, identified as Ferhat Tunç, codenamed “Rubar,” was allegedly responsible for the terrorist group’s activities in the so-called Gap-Rıha area.

The operation was carried out by police squads, intelligence units and special operations squads, Soylu said, as he congratulated the security forces for their diligent work.

The Interior Ministry also made a statement, noting that the operation was carried out in the Hacılar village of Bozova district.

The security forces, backed by drones, surrounded the compound where the terrorist was located and told him to surrender, but the latter responded by opening fire. Security forces then responded and killed the terrorist, the ministry said.

A gun, two hand grenades and organizational documents were confiscated during the operation.

Turkish security forces regularly conduct counterterrorism operations in Turkey's eastern and southeastern provinces, where the PKK has attempted to establish a strong presence and build bases. The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) also carry out cross-border operations in northern Iraq, a region where PKK terrorists have hideouts and bases used for carrying out attacks in Turkey, with particular attention paid to targeting high-level terrorists.

In its more than 40-year terrorism campaign against Turkey, the PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women and children.

Last week I saw a video on twitter released by pkk rats. It looks like it’s from a border region, a mountainous area probably Iran border. In video a group of soldiers walking in front of Kirpi, then when another Kirpi was passing they detonated IED, luckily missed. I don’t know why we are not using UGV based explosive detectors using Adele an ground radar detectors, and why we don’t deploy UAVs watching our soldiers, not necessarily tb-2, a mini drone would be sufficient.

The Ebu Hanzala group is what? or Hizbullah? Aren't those religious sects?

They are groups but reject being called a tariqah due to their opposition to sufism and having a sheikh leading them.

Salafists also fight among themselves as they believe their group is on the right path.

Its a clusterfck thats why i stay away from any group or tariqah. They are screwed up all of them.

Tarikat has many translations, in this context it means Sect.

Ebu Hanzala is a Salafist and his group is similar to that of Sufi tariqahs, period.

Salafists and Sufis hate each other. Salafist groups and sufi tariqats hate each other pretty much. None are a fan of each other.

Difference between both that salafists usually use violence or terrorism while sufis will only fight back if they are attacked.

Thats why most terrorist groups are salafist while a few are sunni and shia while the taliban follow deobandism.

Salafists always formed their own groups to challenge mainstream thats why you never see them at mosques because they believe the average Sunni in Turkey is a "kafir".

Their whole issue is all about kicking Muslims out of Islam while Sufi tariqahs are like evangelists they rely on their followers money while they are able to infiltrate turkish politics due to some minister being apart of their tariqah which gives them lobbying power.

Salafists believe all countries in the Islamic world are illegitamate have to be brought down with violent methods. But somehow saudi arabia does not count here for them.

Thats why they have no problem in killing Muslims. They believe its righteous and for the greater good.

Thats why they should be crushed first. They will never spare us the Ottomans did a good job in crushing the wahabis. They deserved it.

Hm....... it seems that the AKP are cleaning their previous mess
This is good
The police needs to do more
Such idiots need to be rooted out quickly


However, I do wanna ask though
Who commanded the raid, the interior ministry or the police alone?

Do both sufis and salafists even care about Islam?

Both sides always believe they are on haqq. Salafists are more toxic because its their way or the highway.

I say this as a Sunni. Also salafists dont like Hanafis they call us hanafis as heretics.

Even have the audacity to call Maturidi a "kafir". Even North Africa hates Salafists/Wahabis. Takfir al hijra that same group that inspired the GIA in Algeria for decades caused problems with their usual bombings, massacres upon Muslims. They spared nobody.

Salafists a lot of them also make takfir upon a lot of the Islamic Empires. Not to say the Ottomans, Seljuks, Ummayads or the Abbassids were perfect but they dont deserve to be takfir just because they were sinful rulers.

If im gonna be honest with you most of the muslim natio dont even know about sects. Most are laymen, and most are not practising. Salafi people do like hanbali and all the 4 imam, because they believe that they all preached the ortodox way of islam. Maybe you have had or seen bad encounters from personal experience. You find strict people in every sect but i have not seen any call this different muslim empires kuffar. Salafis can do something called «tabdee» ( that means they see them as a deviant sect, and not takfir because takfir means you straigt
Saying kafir.

All these tarikats are dangerous and should be eliminated. However, this government never learns from their mistakes.
