I don’t really know which weapon, maybe mortars, maybe rockets. I was injured here. My stomach was also injured and I got shrapnel in my leg. It was the Turkish army. They call us terrorists but we’re not. I normally fix the generators in my village. What did we do to them? We are civilians, not soldiers. And they threw five rockets on us.”
