Turkey to lift curfew in cut-off Cizre

Members of Turkey's main pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) argue with Turkish police forces as they try to enter Kurdish town Cizre blocked by the Turkish security forces on September 10, 2015, in SirnakTurkey on Friday said it would lift a week-long curfew in a southeastern city imposed to support a military operation against Kurdish rebels but which has also fuelled fears of a possible humanitarian crisis. The curfew in Cizre, in place since September 4, will end on Saturday at 7:00 am (0400 GMT), said the statement from Sirnak region governor Ali Ihsan Su. The operation against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants had sparked concern for Cizre’s inhabitants, with reports of food running out, residents unable to seek urgent treatment and even burials impossible.
