Turkish media reported a few days ago about a fire on the Turkish island of Imrali where the leader Abdullah Ocalan is being arrested after the plot against him in February 1999.
Speaking to Hawar news agency, the political writer and researcher Dr. Jibril al-Obaidi said: "The militant, Abdullah Ocalan is a symbol of the Kurdish national struggle. He was sentenced to death on high treason on June 29, 1999. The fact that Mr. Ocalan is not Turkish in the national sense demands the liberation of his ancestral land from the Turkish colonizer who tries to obliterate the right of the Kurdish people like other nationalists."
He added: "The conspiracy on the Kurdish people by the Turks is not born today, but it is an extension of the years of crimes and massacres against the Kurds. It dispersed them in the mountains and valleys while Turkey embraced the other tribes of terrorists from ISIS, bastards and al-Qaeda and the Brotherhood because they are all without national affiliation and have no roots."
Al-Obaidi added: "Ocalan's trial by law that does not apply on is a crime in itself, so that Ocalan is a nationalist militant, not a rebel against the power of the Turks."
At the end of his speech, the writer called for demonstrations and human rights pressure through the international community.
