A leader of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) warned Saturday that it had called all its fighters back to Turkey and could resume attacks, after protests over the government's policy on Syria left dozens dead.As part of a fragile peace process, the PKK had started withdrawing its fighters from Turkey and moving them to its military base in northern Iraq.Kurds are furious that Turkey has not intervened to defend the mainly Kurdish Syrian border town of Kobani from ISIS jihadists.The Turkish government earlier this month obtained authorization from parliament for military action in Iraq and Syria but Bayik claimed this was aimed more against the PKK than IS.The world's largest stateless people, Kurds are spread between Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey and make up around 15-20 percent of the Turkish population.
