Gelhat – Agit Yılmaz 

Our comrade Gelhat Gabar came to the world in Şırnak, and grew up inside the patriotic people of Botan. Comrade Gelhat, who knew very well the truth of the enemy, took the path of the Free Kurdistan Mountains to carry out the most active struggle against the fascist Turkish state’s genocide and assimilation politics on the Kurdish people. He has been the owner of great labour and effort in every moment in the guerrilla ranks. He has defended his identity and own values inside the truth of relentless war, and has known how to walk with the Kurdish freedom struggle. Our comrade Gelhat, who protected his struggle will until his very last moment, reached martyrdom fighting against the enemy’s invasion attacks until his last bullet. We express our condolences to foremost the precious Yılmaz family and all our patriotic people for this devastating loss, and we repeat our oath to crown our struggle with victory, which is the ideal of our martyrs, once more.
