As a crackdown carried out by the Turkish government against the Kurdish political opposition continues, Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) leader Murat Karayılan vowed in a video message on Friday to retaliate on all fronts.

Karayılan said the attack by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) against the Kurdish people, as he called it, would deepen the war. “We can give the necessary response on all fronts, and we will,” the top commander of the terrorist PKK stated.
