Turkish Air Force aircraft again bombed Kurds in northern Iraq

34
Aircraft of the Turkish Air Force inflicted regular air strikes on Kurdish positions in northern Iraq. Turkish edition Haber turk reports that the operation involved several aircraft F-16 and F-4, striking in the areas of Zap and Metin. As usual, the Turkish media called the Kurdish troops operating in Iraq "militants."


Turkish Air Force aircraft again bombed Kurds in northern Iraq


Attention is drawn to the fact that only a few months ago, official Ankara, explaining the ground presence of the Turkish contingent in the Iraqi province of Ninawa, stated that Turkish instructors were teaching Kurdish troops to counter ISIL. Against this background, ISIS militants freely imported Iraqi and Syrian oil into Turkish territory in hundreds of tank trucks. Now it turns out that the Kurdish troops are “terrorists”. And Ankara does not explain in any way how the detachments allegedly receiving instructor's help from the Turkish military suddenly turned into terrorists threatening Turkish security.

Official Ankara does not explain the fact on what basis (the decision of the UN Security Council? Or the invitation of Baghdad?) Turkish military aircraft cross the border of Iraq and strike on the territory of this state. By the way, the Turkish media recently have never reported that the Turkish Air Force is attacking ISIS militants. As the well-known TV presenter says: “Coincidence? I do not think ... "

            Europe is silent, because the Turks are spoiling Russia, and it’s very high for them, despite the fact that Edorgan themselves already thoroughly got them.

        Yeah, the Americans are not in vain evacuating all their not-so-needed personnel with relatives from Turkey for nothing. Yes, and the Kurds lately very demonstratively supported Erdogan in spite of.

      let them wait a little .... little is left, the tests will pass and let go onto the conveyor

      The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have already received a number of robotic combat systems: Uranus-6, Uranus-9, Nerekhta. But the latest development has no analogues in the world of robotics.

    Now it turns out that the Kurdish troops are “terrorists.” And Ankara does not explain in any way how the units supposedly receiving instructor help from the Turkish military suddenly turned into terrorists threatening Turkish security.

    Now is the time for these "terrorists" to overwhelm several Turkish bombers, so as not to be confused.

      They fight perfectly well without air defense ... Erdogan is tearing and thrashing from the US with powerlessness! They deserve autonomy, you must agree (in Syria it will definitely be) Russia will help "cut" this age-old "Gordian knot" ... The main thing in this is not to rush and wait for the moment, and it will come soon!

    If the author had even a little knowledge of the matter, he would have known that Turkey trained the PESHMERG fighters, the official army of Northern Iraqi Kurdistan, and they bombed PKK units that are not members of the PKK and no one trained them and they are both militants and terrorists for Turkey. There is no peshmerga.

    Erdogan lost to Syria, he decided to recoup in Iraq. Since in Iraq they are driven by strip-ears, and the raven - the crow will not peck out the eye!

    "Against this backdrop, ISIS militants freely imported Iraqi and Syrian oil into Turkish territory in hundreds of tankers."

    According to the UN, for the past year oil went somewhere by 450 million green rubles. If you take the price of 10 per barrel, then these volumes can not be transported in hundreds of bulk timber. There is daily and powerful traffic that you can’t hide. That's where you have to bomb. As far as I remember there was only one report on the bombed column. Sad thoughts are inspired ... They are reinforced by the lack of anti-aircraft weapons supplies to the Kurds from Russia. It is not an active struggle that is emerging, but again some games with the dancing of democracy.

    In general, we supply anti-aircraft guns. And the Kurds themselves are doing quite well - just look how many terrorist attacks have occurred in Istanbul and Ankara. Do you think the Turks themselves blow up? no, this is a "Kurdish response".
