Media: the Turks attacked the positions of Iraqi Kurds


"F-16 Turkish air force inflicted airstrikes on the positions of the militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), banned in the country in Northern Iraq," writes the Turkish edition with reference to its source in the Ministry of Defense.

According to the interlocutor, "the fighters that took off from the Diyarbakir airbase struck the PKK in the Kandil region."

Turkish aviation has been attacking PKK facilities in northern Iraq since July 2015, that is, from the time when armed clashes with Kurdish party fighters in Turkey itself resumed.

        One of the leaders of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, Duran Kalkan, made a statement in which he said that the “Kurdish spring” could begin in Turkey in March if the Erdogan regime did not stop shelling the positions of the People’s Defense Forces and Kurdish enclaves in Syria. And there, Iraqi Kurds will catch up

          The Kurds are all different and the interests of the Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi, Iranian, Armenian and Jordanian are completely different. Each leader of his "tribe" considers himself the "father of all" Kurds and is even ready to fight against his only-begotten people on the other side of the border. There is no unity of the nation. The Turks made great efforts to this (after all, it is easier to roll your head one by one than all together). By the way, Father Tsar Nicholas II said in 1912: "Turkey is a sick man of Europe." His Majesty was not mistaken.

      Turkish mixing with Kurds is not our war. Kurds arrange meat grinders in Ankara - Turks kill them "in toilets". Who said that the "toilet" could not be located in Iraq?
      And to the question of "supply" - in order to supply someone with something, one must be sure of their loyalty, roughly speaking - whether they are tamed or not. Kurds are a dark horse. We are in no hurry to interfere in their conflict with the Turks for a number of reasons, much more compelling than the sympathy of some comrades for the Kurdish guerilleros.

    In 20 years, the Turks will talk about today's extermination of the Kurds - they conspired with the Russians behind our backs, we didn’t kill them on a national basis - this is by no means genocide of the Kurds by the Turks, it’s just putting things in order, as with the Armenians of 1915-1923.

        It may well be that in the current borders of Turkey and will not.
        But this does not prevent the Turks from remaining Turks.
        The Ottoman Empire is also gone. Neither in the old borders, nor in any. But ask the Turk about the genocide of Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, in response you will hear - there wasn’t!

    Turkey conducts undeclared hostilities in the territory of two neighboring countries and blames them for this.
    Erdogan absolutely does not understand the logic of further immersion of TURKEY in the swamp of military confrontation .... it will only get worse.
    He is not looking for peace; he is looking for war with neighbors and I am sure of his defeat as a politician and as the head of state ....
    he does not have the wisdom of the head of state.

    Until the Kurds overcome their contradictions, so will their Turks slaughter. In parts: they fire at the Syrian, bomb the Iraqi, and shoot at the Turkish. To Iranian hands are short to get. The Ottomans are emboldened to the extreme. Although they are afraid to bomb Syria. United Kurds - Erdogan's nightmare.

        all this Kurdish shit just superimposed on the Syrian and near-Syrian events. The valiant revolutionary struggle of the gallant Kurds has been going on for 30 years. And it will continue, I think, two more times, the same amount. Or more. You, in fact, propose to support - that is, to throw yeast into this terrorist city .. but? Well yes, why not? Assad mumbled something about Kurdish autonomy, but somehow hesitantly - why the heck, sorry, does he have any autonomy that, like Iraqi clowns, will puff out their cheeks and threaten to secede? Assad has no time to derail the country. One great politician (let the earth be glass wool to him) spoke about "take autonomy as much as you can". You, in fact, recommend this rake to Assad? (And, accordingly - to us)

        There is not even a name in the profile, and therefore I don’t know how to contact Namerek ...
        What makes you think that the Kurdish movement is just a layering on the existing Syrian reality? This is a kind of ongoing process of creating Kurdistan with the participation of the Kurds of Iraq, Syria and Turkey, which, as you have noticed, has gone unsteadily for 30 years.
        To call the movement of 40 million people "heh ... th" is somehow short-sighted)))
        Moreover, now, taking into account the "merits" of Turkey in the Caucasus, Tatarstan and the downed SU-24, the Kurds have a "certain" support that will provide them with real support with weapons, finances and diplomatic capabilities on the international field. Moreover, an ardent supporter of the promotion of "democracy" in the person of the United States is also showing interest in the Kurds, which suggests that the emergence of Kurdistan is not a distant question. a subject will appear on the territory of BV, which will actually control all its energy flows on land. Those who control Kurdistan will be able to put pressure on both the supplier and the consumer of e / resources. What goes by tankers by sea will not be profitable.
        So the creation of Kurdistan can begin with Assad’s recognition of Kurdish autonomy within Syria, which automatically becomes a natural buffer against Turkey in northern Syria, which is also beneficial for Assad.
        And the Turkish and Iraqi Kurds will pull their territories to the designated beginning, completing the creation of Kurdistan, and it seems to me that the United States and Russia will have very close positions on this issue, taking into account the interests of each other. Judging by the fact that the mattresses went to the "truce", we can conclude that the "mutual interests" have all the same settled down. If everything went well for the mattresses, they would not have agreed to a truce and would not have negotiated at all. And here.......
