  • The PKK targeted Mehmet Celal Bucak in its first symbolic attack on a Kurdish ‘collaborator’ in 1979, which led to an extended feud between this branch of the Bucaks and the PKK. Sedat Edip Bucak has led a large ‘village guard’ militia force, established in the context of the war against the PKK (but which he used primarily to establish his domination over neighbouring tribes.) In the past two decades, members of the Bucak tribe were killed fighting on both sides.

  • A very striking example is that of the Bucak tribe, the leading family of which has long been split in pro-government and Kurdish nationalist factions. Fayik Bucak was in 1965 one of the founders of the KDP of Turkey. He was assassinated in obscure circumstances, probably in a tribal feud; his children have since become prominent in the Kurdish movement, one of them, Serhat, closely associating himself with the PKK. Another branch of the family, led by Mehmet Celal Bucak and his successor Sedat Edip Bucak, has closely co-operated with the state.
