the hashtag #JusticeForKurds calling for a UNHRC-led investigation into
claims of the alleged massacre of Kurdish civilians.
“RT traveled to Cizre to get first-hand accounts from witnesses.
They showed us the site of the alleged mass killing. RT filmed the
destroyed buildings, including bloodstains on the debris, and shell
casings. A witness told us that among the victims were women, and
children as young as ten years old,” the petition states.
The channel said it had contacted Human Rights Watch, Amnesty
International, ICRC and other international organizations and shared the
materials with them, but none of them commented substantively, citing a
variety of reasons.
