Under the blow of the Kurds. Turkish army launches offensive in northern Iraq
The Turkish army launched an offensive in northern Iraq. In the Kandil region, Turkish troops have already advanced 26 kilometers into Iraqi territory.
Turkish Interior Minister Suleiman Soilu said on this occasion that in the north of Iraq, the headquarters of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) banned in Turkey is located in the above-mentioned region and the Turkish army will not stop until it reaches and seizes this structure.
Sanction for the operation of the Turkish army issued by the Turkish Parliament, which over the past 8 years annually extends the corresponding mandate. Turkish authorities consider the Kurdistan Workers' Party a terrorist organization and one of the main threats to national security.
According to the Turkish General Staff, at least two Turkish soldiers were killed during the offensive in northern Iraq. Also during the missile attack on the Turkish troops, another soldier was injured.
The Turkish army periodically inflicts pinpoint strikes against the targets of the PKK in Northern Iraq, where the organization’s camps are located, shelters, command posts and repositories with weapons. This attack is not the first undertaken by the Turkish army in the area, but the ultimate goal of destroying the PKK headquarters was never achieved.
