The antiterrorist operation against the militants of Kurdistan Worker's Party, started in December 2015 is now more like a civil war. Curfews have been enforced in Kurdish cities, including Diyarbakir, the unofficial capital of Kurdistan. The Kurdish army defies the curfew. On January 22, a bomb exploded in a Turkish school in Diyarbakir, injuring five children. On January 27, four Turkish soldiers died in clashes with the Kurds. After the curfew was lifted on February 3, hundreds of people fled the city. In the photo: Newlyweds pose for a wedding picture as they look at smokes rising over the district of Sur in Diyarbakir.
