Baghdad announces losses among border guards as a result of Turkish airstrike on Iraq

Turkish aviation inflicted a series of air strikes on Iraqi territory using fighters and unmanned aerial vehicles. As explained in the Ministry of Defense, these attacks were intended to avenge the death of the military.

Not a drop of the blood of our martyrs has remained on earth and will not remain in the future! We have not forgotten you and all our martyr fighters!

- explained in the Turkish military department.

The air raid allegedly killed two members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party. However, Baghdad claims that two high-ranking Iraqi border guards and their driver were killed on 11 August in the Kurdish region of Sidakan. This is the first case of loss of government troops during Ankara's cross-border operation against Kurdish militants in the highlands of northern Iraq.

Iraq strongly condemned the recent Turkish drone strike [...] The statement also called for Ankara to “end all its military operations” in the region and move on to negotiations to peacefully resolve border issues between the two countries

- notes PressTV.

The Turkish newspaper Yeni Çağ hastened to call the statement that followed from Baghdad "arrogant". In turn, the Iraqi authorities refused to negotiate with the Turkish Defense Minister, who was to arrive in the country soon. Ankara does not comment on claims of losses among Iraqi border guards at this moment

    The Turks decided to get in there too. Now Iraq will also join Erdogan's "friends club".

      For centuries, the Turks had Baghdad, and in this region there was relative peace. Then, the dependent dictatorships of the Anglo-Saxons. Saddam decided to be chribine and go against the imperialists, everyone saw the result. The salvation of the Kurdish Barzani and Baghdad passes through Ankara. Otherwise, they will not have peace for a century. By the way, Barzani realizing this is always on good terms with Turkey (his father, the elder Barzani generally wore a Turkish red passport so that Saddam would not dare touch it). In truth, Iraqi Kurdistan today lives and is being built by the hands of Turkey. In Baghdad, they also understand that which, despite their apparent "protest".

    The builder of the "New Ottoman Empire" stubbornly bends his line: North Africa, the Middle East, Transcaucasia, the Mediterranean. Burns, so to speak, with desire. The main thing is that there are enough resources, finances, etc. Well, and not "burn out" at the construction site ...

      But the aforementioned ones are eager, only while they receive money. The Turks will run out of money, the neighbors will also run out of desire

            So that's why the New Yorkers of Kagalov put their own in the White House, in order to promote the ideas of the Turkic Hazaraism ... Turkey faces only one real danger, since the time of their oversight of Peter, but while in the Kremlin their partners, tomato lovers, they really no one and nothing threatens ...
