The occupation attacks of the colonialist, fascist Turkish state in South Kurdistan and the heroic resistances rising from the guerrilla fronts continue. As it fails to pass the resistance despite all out bombardments of the war planes and heavy weapons over the mountains, the fascist Tayyip Erdoğan administration now desperately bombs the civilian settlements, burns the forests. However, despite its high technological weapons and air-strikes running almost everyday, it can not manage to escape from getting heavy blows from the guerrillas. It has been months that the fascist Turkish army and its special forces are failing to break the barricades of the resistance in the areas that they are attacking with all their means. The guerrillas continue to uprise the flag of freedom and honor by giving a self-sacrificing resistance in this war.


A resistance line that extends from Suruç to the Zap


One of the areas of this ongoing revolutionary war is the Zap area. The occupying army has been trying to move forward in this area for months, but it fails to succeed. It has suffered heavy blows from the guerrillas at each stage of the fight, and as it gets more casualties, it holds on more to the high technology and air strikes.

In an effective guerrilla attack on August 17, which was directed against the occupying Turkish army's coordinate hill in the Zap area, the fascist army had suffered many casualties, after which it ran for the artillery shooting in panic and air bombardments following after. In this bombardment, one of our fighter fell martyr.

Our comrade Sarin Awaz (Şevin Söğüt), who had been in the front trenches against the occupation, is immortalized by the howitzer and air-strike bombardments to the area where she was taking up a position together with the YJA Star guerrillas. We extend our condolences to her patriotic family in particular and all her relatives and friends together with our wishes for holding their head high! Because şehid Sarin is the creator of an action which brings honor and power to her comrades, family and all relatives. She is a determined vanguard of our women liberation struggle and our revolution.

Against the occupation attempts of the colonialist Turkish state over South Kurdistan, a group of our guerrillas under the leadership of comrade Sarin, who was a member of the MLKP / KKÖ (Communist Women's Organization) and a commander of the MLKP/FESK Kurdistan Rural Guerilla Units, have taken their place in the trenches of resistance and played a vanguard role in the defense of hope and freedom against colonialism.

In her speech while she was on the way to the war front, our comrade Sarin said: "We will not allow colonialism to step on this ground (...) We will resist the occupation attack of the colonialist Turkish army, just as we did in Kobanê and Afrin. Following the perspective to defend each trenches that our party exists, we will defend every inch of our free areas."

They remained true to their words. Together with the comrades in arms, they fought with great determination against the occupation and its bloody, fascist army. Their surviving comrades now continue fighting with the same faith and loyalty.


Facing with the fascist Tyranny in Childhood


Our comrade Şevin Söğüt, who was born in Amed/Lice, on June 20, 1992, grew up in a patriotic family. When she was just three years old, her father Ömer Söğüt was taken into custody by the colonialist state and became disappeared by them after. The family had been subjected to heavy oppressions. Comrade Şevin met our party in 2012; after carrying out youth activities in Black Sea region and Kurdistan, she headed towards the free areas where she got basic military and ideological training. She improved herself in all respects. With her party name Sarin Awaz, she had been carrying out duties as a guerrilla in the free areas since April 2016. She had been in the defense of Rojava for a while, participated in the operation of liberating Raqqa. Then she headed towards the mountains as a rural guerrilla. She was a specialist sniper and the woman commander of our unit, while moving to the war trenches.

" I set out as a soldier of our youth, on my way coming here. I came here to fulfill the dreams of our comrades murdered in the Suruç massacre, to grow the path that they opened for us. Today I continue following my word as a MLKP/FESK guerrilla, as a creator of our party's action of growing the fighting areas. Following the footsteps of the fallen martyrs who paved our way there, I will try to reach a new level as a successor of their dreams and actions, "said our comrade Sarin, who was exposing her distinctive feature with these words, that is, her loyalty to the martyrs.

Her greatest desire was to fulfill Şehid Roza's march towards Dersim which remained uncompleted. And these words of her was the sign of her determination: "I am aware that Roza is by my side with every step I take. As I get close to Dersim, Roza will get close to the mountains of Dersim which she had dreamed of. My path will fulfill her path and her dream".


Higher Quality, Stronger Fight


Shining with courageous, laboring, productive features as well as having a high gender consciousness and initiative, our comrade Sarin is the loadstar of all the oppressed, and women in particular. While she was heading towards the war fronts, she left a clear call behind: "The period we pass through demands from us a higher quality and stronger fight. I strongly believe that, my party will continue to grow with its martyrs everywhere; on the mountains, cities, rural areas... To be a subject of this, makes me infinitely happy. I am sure that my voice will come out lauder on my path to integrate the "song of the highlander girl", which is the meaning of my name, into the "song of hope".

These words of her will be held in our hands like a torch illuminating our path, and we will never stop singing the "song of hope" that the highlander girl has raised.


Şehid Namirin!

Glory to those who Fight for Honor and Freedom!
Down with the Colonialist Fascist Occupying Dictatorship!
