The main objective of the attacks on the territory of southern Kurdistan is to strike at the presence of the Kurdish people on its historic land, and also to break attempts to establish a national unity among all Kurdish parties. We call on our people to reject these attacks and at the same time pledge that we, the Guerrilla fighters, will not allow all such attacks without an appropriate response. We also offer condolences to the people of Mansour Nafi, who died in one of these treacherous attacks, and wish them and our people in southern Kurdistan patience and solace."
