Turkish F-16s hit northern Iraq

Turkish F-16s hit northern Iraq

It became known that Turkish aviation dealt another blow to the northern regions of Iraq. We are talking about the territories that are part of Iraqi Kurdistan. Turkish combat aircraft strikes in these areas adjacent to the Turkish border, using both unmanned aircraft and combat aircraft.


According to the Turkish Air Force command, three representatives of the terrorist group were eliminated during an air raid on the Avasin-Basian region. We are talking about the armed representatives of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). Ankara, this organization is recognized as terrorist with all the consequences arising from such recognition.

Turkey claims that terrorist cells located on Iraqi territory assist the PKK in eastern Turkey, "which aims to support separatist sentiments."

From a message from the Turkish Air Force Command:

Members of a terrorist group were discovered while conducting intelligence in northern Iraq. The Turkish army will continue to carry out anti-terrorist operations to neutralize the threat.

A missile strike was carried out by F-16 aircraft.

In Iraqi Kurdistan, the Turkish Air Force operation was already called on duty as a violation of sovereignty. However, neither Erbil nor Baghdad has sent any protest notes to Ankara at the moment.

      It remains only to resent.

      Crimes must still be recorded and talked about.

        The Turks and Iraq are bombing, and Syria and Libya are fighting, and oil is being stolen from Greek territory. No matter how the face cracked.

      Before Iraq’s capture of Kuwait, the Iraqi army then used gases against the Kurds, now the Turks use aviation against the same Kurds ....
      I remember even before 2011 (the beginning of the mess in the SAR), they said in the "zombie box" how the Turkish armed forces entered the territory of northern Iraq ...
      Apparently the PKK is an eyesore to everyone, except probably the Americans and Israeli Jews ....

    Well, to whom in the world did these notes of protest hinder something?))) Nobody and never ... For a military strike, only the same strike can be effective .. Like India and Pakistan, for example ..

      This requires political and steel will (well, you understand). And they fear the reaction of the "partners."
      But the Turkish sultan is not afraid.

        if I may say a little differently. This partners fear the reaction of the Sultan, because he has steel.

          I completely agree with you. Turkey and Poland are now the hope and support of NATO. You should not scold them for such "pranks".

      What for? Just to fight? If we want to win there, we must educate our opposition.

    It’s just that the Turks consider these territories practically their own. Like the north of Syria.

    It’s good to be a member of NATO. They bombed on foreign territory, and no "civilized" governments and the media will not announce the aggressive actions of Turkey and the need to counter it.

    Although Iraqi Kurdistan is not a territory controlled by Iraq, it is Iraq legally.
    It's just that they themselves are occupied by the Americans, they patronize the Kurds and allied with Turkey, and the Turks are at war with the Kurds, that's such a salad. Therefore, Iraq has the right to protest, but who will allow it and who will pay attention to it.?

        I can’t laugh
        On December 4, Turkey deployed a group of its armed forces in the area of ​​the Kurdish militia camp Peshmerga in the province of Ninewa. Turkey’s unceremonious actions provoked a harsh reaction from the Iraqi authorities, who issued an ultimatum yesterday: if the Turkish military does not leave Kurdistan’s territory within two days, the Iraqi leadership leaves reserve the right to take any action. Among other things, Iraq threatened to appeal to the UN Security Council, as well as for military assistance to Russia. Moscow has not yet responded to this, although Aleksey Pushkov, head of the State Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee, wrote on Twitter that “Baghdad has the right to defend its borders,” and after 48 hours, “Erdogan can blame himself.”
        Today it became known that the Turks partly backed off, halting the transfer of troops and promising not to deploy them on an ongoing basis "until sensitive issues are resolved." This is stated in a letter from Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to his Iraqi counterpart Haider al-Abadi

          APASUS (Pavo) 4 December Turkey deployed a group of its armed forces in the vicinity of the Kurdish militia camp Peshmerga in the province of Ninewa. The unceremonious actions of Turkey provoked a harsh reaction from the Iraqi authorities, who put forward an ultimatum yesterday: if the Turkish military does not leave the territory of Kurdistan within two days, the Iraqi leadership reserves the right to any action.

          What year is the article?
          It should be noted that the Turkish armed forces periodically strike at the north of Iraq, where Kurdish armed formations are subordinate to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), declared in Turkey as a terrorist organization threatening the country's security.
          Since 2007, the country's parliament has issued sanctions for striking against the territory of another state of the Turkish army, which annually extends the mandate..

          Russia does not care about the Kurds, including on the PKK, which after the collapse of the Union began to dance to the American tune, otherwise the Russian Federation would not have given Turkey the leader of the Kurds in the 90s of Turkey ...
          And the Kurds themselves are not a single monolith, they are known to live in Turkey, the SAR, Iran, Iraq to a lesser extent in other BV countries and the relationship between these diasporas is ambiguous ....

    the Turks will get the wort if, for example, by accident (or intentionally) enter the formations of the IRGC and bang (again, by accident, deliberately) any of the senior IRGCs
