What other countries do to illegal border crossers

Funny this hasn't gotten much attention (Hat Tip: Shy Guy via Instapundit).
Today's itty-bitty, buried on the back page if reported at all, anywhere, headline:
Turkish security forces kill 12 PKK rebels in southeastern Turkey
Turkish security forces killed 12 militants of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) during two operations conducted in Linksoutheastern Turkey, a military statement said on the website of Turkish General Staff on Saturday.

The statement said that the security forces wiped out the 12 PKK members, who were trying to sneak into Turkey along Iraqi border, during two separate operations staged in Uludere town of the southeastern province of Sirnak between May 12 and 14.
What, you mean you hadn't heard about that?
And then that damned hypocrite Erdogan - may the name the wicked one be obliterated - has the gall to attack us for defending our borders against coordinated attacks from three sides (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
"Palestinians have once again been obliged to commemorate the Nakba with blood and tears,” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said at a speech Monday at the general convention of the Turkish Union of Chambers of Commodity Exchanges, or TOBB.

Israeli troops fired on thousands of people along the Syrian and Lebanese borders, as well on the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. The protests came as Palestinians in the territories and neighboring countries staged massive protests to mark the anniversary of Israel’s founding in 1948, an event known in Arabic as the “Nakba,” or “catastrophe.”

Hundreds of people were arrested in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Erdoğan said, adding that 16 people were killed when Israeli security forces opened fire on the border region.

“Israel’s insistence on violent politics, even increasing it to the level of piracy by targeting vessels in the Mediterranean, no doubt raises our concerns,” Erdoğan said, referring to Israel’s military response to ships seeking to carry aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip.

In his speech, the Turkish prime minister depicted the Jewish state as the main source of regional problems.
Damned hypocrite. I hope he's buried in pigskin.

The Turks have the chutzpah to criticize Israel what they themselves do.

Israel has the right to use lethal force to protect its sovereignty. Every country on earth does this to ensure its existence.

Erdogan can take his hypocrisy and shove it where the sun don't shine!

When it comes to the Kurds, the Turks don't always wait before they cross any borders to hunt them down and kill them.
