The Güçlükonak Massacre (1996)

This killing of ten people by state security forces in Sirnak province in Turkey’s South East was blamed by the government on the PKK. Local testimony however showed that it was more likely to have been committed by the military. There is no Wikipedia page as yet for this incident, and if nobody creates one soon, I might do it. At least they will be able to refer to this source. Other sources can be found here and here.
