There is a war nobody is talking about. Since the end of the cease-fire between the Turkish Government and the PKK in July 2015, the Turkish authorities have started a massive military campaign to eradicate the PKK, considered a terroristic group in Turkey as well as the US and Europe. However, the US are baking the PKK struggles in the fight against Daesh with financial and military support.

In March 2016, the curfew was lifted to a lighter 7:30pm to 5am and residents were allowed to come back to their homes, they soon discovered that, in many cases, almost nothing was left. According to the Turkish Army more than 600 PKK fighters were killed in Cizre in 59 days. Such violent clashes brought widespread destruction.
