The Turkish army has completed the military operation "Eagle Claw-2", carried out in northern Iraq against representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party. This was reported by the press service of the Turkish Defense Ministry.


The end of the anti-terrorist operation on Sunday was announced by Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, who arrived on the border with Iraq on Saturday to monitor the course of Operation Eagle's Claw-2, which began last week on Wednesday, February 10, 2021.

According to the Turkish military department, the operation involved a military aviation, drones, armored vehicles and personnel of the Turkish army. Officially, three Turkish soldiers were killed and three more were injured. At the same time, 53 terrorists are reported to have been killed, of which three are high-ranking leaders of the PKK.

At the beginning of the ground operation, three soldiers were heroically killed, three more were injured (...) in total 53 terrorists were neutralized, more than 50 terrorist facilities were destroyed, including ammunition depots, caves and bases

- said in a statement.

It is also reported that the bodies of 13 Turkish citizens were found abducted by PKK members several years ago. According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, all of them were shot, but according to media reports close to the Kurds, Turkish bombing was the cause of their death.

As the name implies, "Eagle Claw-2", this is the second part of the anti-terrorist operation conducted by Turkey in Iraq against the PKK. The first part of Operation Eagle Claw 1 was carried out in June 2020.

    Turks are trying to climb everywhere. Oh well. That's right, we finished ... otherwise the Eagle's Claw would turn into the Heel of a Hare.
    The Kurds will definitely throw the treatment!

      Not all Kurds are created equal. They have many factions that fight among themselves.
      The Peshmerga are fighting the PKK, the US is friends with the Peshmerga, Turkey is fighting the PKK.
      So Turkey, USA, Peshmerga are united and are fighting in an alliance. Otherwise, the Turks would not have been allowed to fight in Iraq.

        Peshmerga fighting against the PKK

        but they are not at war, do not write nonsense. There are small skirmishes periodically, but there is a long way to the concept of "fighting".
        Turkey, USA, Peshmerga united and fighting in an alliance

        there is no such union. Each side strives exclusively for its own interests and allows assumptions about other parties in cases where they do not interfere (or even better - contribute) to the implementation of their own plans.

      If. The mattresses have now begun to build their base in northern Syria at the junction with Iraq, and relying on the Kurdish formations of the SDF, and therefore they probably hinted boldly to Edik that he was there with his "eagle claws" out of place. The bloc status does not allow Ankara to fight with horns with mattresses, especially in the front, and therefore, most likely, the activity of pro-Turkish proxies is activated there, whose task will include periodic shelling of all indiscriminately in order to consolidate the understanding that Ankara's presence is necessary and guarantees some kind of order.

    Well, the eagle is something from US folklore. They often have eagles flickering on the stripes of the warriors. And on the coat of arms of the United States is not an eagle, but an Eagle. So the claw is a part of the body, which is the Turkish army for the United States. And the claw is such a thing that it can break and get stuck in some solid material, but the bird itself can fly away without it - run away, hide. This is the problem of the claw, if it is stuck ... And the bird will cackle and scream from the side, but it will not take part in the denouement itself ...

    It turns out that Turkey is fighting on the territory of a neighboring state. Oh, the Turks will finish badly.

    Well, of course, 13 of our own victims during the Turkish airstrike does not count. are they "on the conscience" of the PKK? "Claw 1,2 ...", and as a result, sooner or later the claw may get stuck and then the skiff for the bird.

      Aha to the point!
      Kidnapped many years ago, and then they took and killed ..... Not, of course, they could clean out the slaves, but there you need to save your skin, and not shoot a damn dozen people ..... Doubtful.

    One person per object? fool Or panties, or a cross ... request
    The bodies of 13 Turkish citizens abducted by PKK members are also reported. some years ago... According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, they were all shot
    belay How did you find it by smell? recourse Themselves gouged, and now everything is in white. If they were kidnapped, fed for years, now why shoot? They could have killed them right away and not dragged them to Iraq.

    I do not envy the Turks. You need to twirl around, like in a frying pan. On the one hand, it is necessary to somehow reduce the activity of the Kurds in the collapse of Turkey. On the other hand, it is a lucrative business of buying stolen oil from the same Kurds. On the third, the United States decided to stop covering the stolen wells, and the Syrians began operations to press the wells back, including with the use of Russian aircraft. Ah ah ah. what a difficult situation!)
