Amnesty: 500,000 Kurds displaced in southeast Turkey
Turkish authorities have displaced about half a million people in the southeast of the country, according to Amnesty International.

According to a report by the human rights organization, inhabitants have been forcibly evicted from their homes as part of a collective punishment, reports NTB.

The report points specifically to the district of Sur in the Kurdish city of Diyarbakir. In Sur alone, around 24,000 people have been forced to abandon their homes and leave the area, largely because of the curfew the Turkish authorities have introduced, the report said.

The district has been the scene of several clashes between government forces and the banned Kurdish PKK, after a two-year truce collapsed in 2015.

In March, Turkish authorities expropriated large parts of Sur to evict the Kurds, according to Amnesty.
