UN Rips Turkey for Killing Thousands of Kurds; Deja Vu in Turkey's Armenian Murders in WWI

The United Nations today (March 10, 2017) accused Turkey of "serious" human rights violations during operations against Kurdish separatists in the southeast of the country, according to the Euro News website.

The UN says up to half a million people were displaced and at least 2,000 people were unjustly killed from July 2015.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights spokesman Rupert Colville said: "It appears that not a single suspect was apprehended and not a single individual was prosecuted for violations that occurred during this period..."

Today's UN human rights report reminds us of Turkey killing more than one million innocent Armenians during World War I in 1917 and 1918, when it carried out its first barbaric genocide.
