Turkish Air Force strikes Iraqi Kandil


Turkish Air Force Command Confirms Use of Combat aviation in Iraq. According to reports from the law enforcement agency, Turkish planes launched a missile and bomb attack on the Kandil mountain range, which is located in northwestern Iraq. In these territories, the predominantly Kurdish population of the country lives.


The materials of the Turkish media say that F-16 aircraft were used to strike. As a result of the strike, nine terrorists were neutralized. Recall that in Turkey, in this case, they call the representatives of the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers' Party.

The Iraqi government condemned the Turkish strike on Iraqi territory, noting that the use of military aircraft to bomb an independent state without any approval from official Baghdad is a violation of international standards.

Recall that earlier in Ankara they announced the successful operation of Turkish special forces in northern Syria. It was announced that "the neutralization of 54 YPG terrorists." It is noteworthy that YPG is actually supported by the United States of America.

In the Turkish press, meanwhile, it is reported that today at 15:00 in Ankara there will be a meeting of the General Assembly of the Turkish parliaments. It will be dedicated to the situation in Idlib. At the closed part of the meeting, parliamentarians will hear reports by the Ministers of Defense and Foreign Affairs - Hulusi Akar and Mevlut Cavusoglu.

              Iraq cannot bring down someone else’s plane. Not yet. There is simply nothing.
              But it’s already good that it does not silently demolish, but expresses condemnation.
              Considering that the American base is now regularly fired there, there is hope for a revival of an independent state.

            Maybe Erdogan is furious, because he did not have long to preside?
            The CIA agent, who is also the head of Turkish intelligence, Hakan Fidan is driving Erdogan into a corner, from where the latter will have only one way out: a war with Russia.
            Once Erdogan (through apology) jumped out of this way. Now Fidan has no right to make a mistake. The death of the Turkish military and its UNRECIDIBLE mass coverage excited the Turkish society, which requires Erdogan to war with Russia.
            The attacks on the Kurds in Iraq, on the one hand, seem to support Erdogan’s shaky rating, on the other hand, it aggravates relations with Iraq and intensifies intra-Turkish pressure on Erdogan.
            Problems with Iraq, with Libya, with Greece, with Syria. Erdogan is deliberately driven into a corridor where only war until victory in Idlib will be a solution, and this is an inevitable conflict with Russia, which is what the US needs. The more Erdogan says that he does not want a war with Russia, the more often he is given advice, which in the end will not leave him any choice. And the advice is given by Fidan.
            If this happens, then CIA agent Fidan has done his job.

        The most interesting thing is that many forum users are akin to raguls, they have one thing in mind, we dishonored us! Urgently bomb, answer and so on. And they don’t want to consider the options that we see only the tip of the iceberg! This applies to Turkey and the crown of the virus, and the sale of gold in England, and so on. Etc.

        Once, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein was not opposed to episodic raids by Turkish troops to the north of his country.
        With the hands of askers, he fought with the hot Iraqi guys from Peshchmerga.
        However, Saddam was hanged, Iraq turned into a battered American lap-dog, occasionally growling at his master ....
        And Turkish priorities are still alive.
        Why today?
        Yes, because flying over Idlib "Ef - sixteenth" is not safe to fly.
        Russia said so yesterday - it does not guarantee them security in the Syrian sky.
        And the picture of the fighter emitting flames starting from Turkish airfields is very necessary on TV.
        The war is going on! Infantry dies in violent attacks ...
        It is not good for flyers to smoke hookah when the fate of the Ottoman homeland is decided ... wink

        And how does it quarrel with Iraq?
        Let me remind you. Kurds. This is a problem not only in Turkey. This is the problem of Iraq, Iran and Syria.
        Therefore, as soon as an independent Kurdish state is formed even in one of the countries, neighboring Kurds will want to take communion for a moment. And all these countries run the risk of large territorial losses. For this reason, the Kurds in Iraq still Saddam drenched.

      hi
      Erdogan, with his militaristic policies, is increasingly losing support from outside Turkey and is gaining more and more enemies and opponents within the country. Even Turkish non-governmental organizations have switched to collecting signatures for the withdrawal of troops from its occupied territories.

      Turkey has 12 well-equipped strong points on the territories of northern Iraq, penetrating a depth of 45 km along the Iranian border, in the Kandil mountains. This is part of the operation called "Lapa". This part is mountainous, where armed Kurdish groups have been hiding for years, and from time to time they have penetrated mountain paths into Turkey. They already cut off all the paths about 2 years ago, because the activity of the Kurds in Turkey was close to zero.

        “Sultan” of course, the shot is still the same, but for BV, it is a typical representative of small-town elites. Those. quite understandable. Does anyone want to help replace him with another? And what?
        There, after all, the interes ball is still the one, maybe the other can make friends again with Uncle Sam, for example !!! Then some other oh how fun it will be ....

        BIABIA (BIABIA):It remains for the sultan to hit Iran, and, I think, the red line will be crossed. Persians will not express concern ...

        On the Iran-Turkey border, two years ago, Turkey erected a 144-kilometer concrete wall. At 15 checkpoints placed along the entire wall, bulletproof glass is installed

        Moreover, the border on both sides is densely mined. At one time, the CE even allocated them money to clear the border. But in the end, everything died out.
        Iran, by the way, regularly holds military exercises on the border with Turkey., And closely monitors the situation in Turkish territory. It was Iran on the night of October 8 that warned Syria about a possible Turkish invasion of Idlib and about the concentration of Turkish army units on the border with Syria

    Turks really want to be a key player and the main "decisive" of the Arab World. They climb everywhere and declare themselves very loudly. I think that Egypt, Saudis and Iran will definitely be against it. And a number of countries will simply want to declare themselves in Syria, supporting Assad, since he is not going to lose.

    The fact that Erdogan will play out is beyond doubt. One gets the impression that he does not have military advisers. As there are no just advisers.


    It seems that his banal, his own, lead to the slaughter ...

    The Iraqi government condemned the Turkish strike on Iraqi territory, noting that the use of military aircraft to bomb an independent state without any approval from official Baghdad is a violation of international standards.


    The Sultan completely broke the chain ...

    Turkish Air Force strikes Iraqi Kandil
    Erdogan suffered and apparently on a nervous basis, because He began to realize what a trap he had driven himself into. A rat cornered becomes more dangerous in a double. Surprisingly, the Kurds (Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi), whom he is slaughtering, cannot come to a general agreement and repulse the Turks in Syria and in the rear (Turkey). Posing themselves as a freedom-loving people fighting for independence, while everyone is sitting at the threshold of their "home".

    Eh, it would be great for Iraq to pull up for assistance, so that it would give a corridor from Iran through Zagros to Syria. But there, the Americans host, unfortunately, and for a long time they will stand there in the name of "America Great Egen." And the Iraqi Sunnis will not allow it. We are waiting, maybe the Kurds will mature for cooperation with Russia, under Erdogan’s kicks it’s not sweet for them, American roofers are throwing. I believe that Kurdistan will still be, sooner or later, who feels good, but this is an objective process - we must bet on it so that then we don’t go “in enemies”. Pull the Kurds out from under the amers, and the whole equation will be immediately solved.

    Erdogan certainly burns. "I’ll kill you all. Adyn, I’m staying!" (Kurds, Syrians, Iranians, Gulenovites, Russians, and Europeans I’m longing for refugees). And before that I doubted its adequacy, but what creates, what creates ...

    And how does it quarrel with Iraq?
    Let me remind you. Kurds. This is a problem not only in Turkey. This is the problem of Iraq, Iran and Syria.
    Therefore, as soon as an independent Kurdish state is formed even in one of the countries, neighboring Kurds will want to take communion for a moment. And all these countries run the risk of large territorial losses. For this reason, the Kurds in Iraq still Saddam drenched.

    Like it or not, and this is Iraqi territory with all the consequences.

    I think Iraq will be freed from the annexation of the United States, unite with Iran and then it will be necessary to see where Turkey will be. So far I have to endure.

    If the Kurds of this “tangle” of four countries did not “squabble” among themselves, they could agree on joint actions ... against the undersultan. But alas and ah, each part of these Kurds thinks only of "their" struggle and dough.

    The more Erdogan says that he does not want a war with Russia, the more often he is given advice, which in the end will not leave him any choice. And the advice is given by Fidan.
    If this happens, then CIA agent Fidan has done his job.

    and what is necessary to obey the advice of Fidan?
