As re­ports emerged that civil­ians were hurt in Zar­gala vil­lage dur­ing Tur­key's air strikes against PKK terror or­ga­ni­za­tion's bases in North­ern Iraq, civil­ians from the area vis­ited Pres­i­dent of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, Ma­soud Barzani on Satur­day and asked PKK to move its bases away from the re­gion.

Barzani ex­pressed his con­do­lence for the mar­tyrs and said that the mar­tyrs were not part of the war.

"We al­ways tried to pre­vent fight­ing and wars from tak­ing place since we knew that wars re­sult in deaths and de­struc­tions. We will be try­ing hard to ease the ten­sions in or­der the is­sues can be solved peace­fully," said Brazani

While ad­dress­ing the guests, Barzani said "I feel your predica­ment and I know you your feel­ings are. The vic­tims can­not be com­pen­sated at all, nev­er­the­less I have asked Kur­dish gov­ern­ment to re­spond to your needs and de­mands,"

The at­ten­dees thanked Barzani for ded­i­cat­ing his time for the meet­ing. They an­nounced the meet­ing will re­duce their sor­rows.

"Af­ter long last­ing wars, we re­con­structed our vil­lages and we were sat­is­fied with our way of liv­ing, but un­for­tu­nately we have been vic­tim­ized of a fight­ing be­tween Kur­dis­tan Work­ers Party (PKK) and the Turk­ish army," They told Barzani

At the end of the meet­ing, the del­e­ga­tion wished the war will be moved away fro their vil­lages so that peo­ple can live peace­fully.
