You're confused. It was/is different groups of people, so treated differently, yes. One group, the PKK is a terrorist organization known for attacking civilian targets in and around Turkey. The other group is the northern Kurds, those that opposed Saddam for the hundreds of thousands of Kurds he murdered.
