The operations launched by Turkey on April 23 against the Federated Kurdistan Region continue with bombardments. Discussions about the use of chemical weapons in air strikes, especially in the last three months, remain current. The people of Behdinan, who do not want to leave their villages despite the heavy bombardments and pressure, are also affected. It was learned that officials from Turkey held a meeting with the headmen, together with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Politburo officials. The village headmen, who were asked to provide intelligence about the PKK's activity, were threatened not to speak to anyone about the use of chemical weapons.
