"According to the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey NGO since the beginning of the active phase of the government operation in Kurdish settlements (July-August 2015) at least 162 people, including women, children and the elderly, were killed as a result of the actions of the Turkish military, and the probe into earlier revealed mass burials in south-east has not been finalized," the diplomat said.
