Comrade Serhildan has reached martyrdom after detonating his bomb on himself in order to not be captured by the enemy.

The false allegation that 5 HPG guerrillas have fell as martyrs in this event has been displayed in the enemy's media. Only our Serhildan and Rodi comrades have reached martyrdom in this brutal attack of the enemy, not 5 of our comrades.
