    According to an article in Özgür Gündem AKP provincial council members in Van have ordered the Ronahî Martys’ Monument in the village of Andiçin (Kelahêrê) in the district of Çatak (Şax), opened last Sunday, to be destroyed. The monument, named for Andrea Wolf – who took the name Ronahî when she joined the PKK in 1996 – remembers Wolf and 40 of her companions, all killed in a battle with the Turkish military at the site on October 23, 1998.

    The monument was built under the direction of MEYA-DER, a civil society organization founded in 2007 to work with families of those killed fighting for the PKK or murdered by unknown assailants thought to be working with the Turkish state. The BDP has promised to pitch tents at the monument to guard against its destruction. The co-vice President of the BDP in Van, Azim Yacan, claimed that the AKP made the decision without inviting BDP members to the meeting. The decision comes just weeks after Turkish soldiers destroyed a PKK cemetery on Bagok mountain in Nusaybin, an event which lead to protests around Turkey.

    The dedication to Wolf on the monument reads:

    This gracious one gave her life for the Kurdish people. As long as this people exists they will be grateful.

    Gece bombalanan PKK mezarlığında yıkım başladı
    Varto’nun Kulan köyündeki PKK mezarlığı bombalandı. İlçe merkezinden bölgeye gönderilen iş makineleri ise mezarlıkta yıkıma başladı.
    17 Eylül 2015
    Muş’un Varto ilçesi Kulan köyünde bulunan PKK mezarlığına yönelik gece saatlerinde askeri operasyon düzenlendi. 4 helikopterin bombaladığı bölgede yangın çıkarken, Varto ile Karlıova arasındaki geniş ormanlık alanda da yangın başladı. Karadan da çok sayıda asker bölgeyi abluka altına aldı. Buraya getirilen iş makineleri mezarlığı yıkmaya başladı.

    İMC TV’ye bağlanan köylü Leyla Aydınkaya köyle mezarlık arasındaki mezarlık arasında 10 dakikalık bir mesafe olduğunu belirterek, “Bizler camiye sığındık, 05.30 gibi eve döndük. Helikoplerler geldi, şehitliğimizi yıkıyorlar. Sokağa çıktığımızda yasak diyorlar, biz ne yapacağımızı bilmiyoruz” dedi. Aydınkaya, köye yönelik bir saldırının ise olmadığını söyledi. (İMC TV, DİHA)
