On November 9, an explosion was reported at a Turkish military base near the village of Derecik in the province of Hakkari. According to reports, the explosion injured at least 25 soldiers. 7 others are still missing.

The miltiary base is located near the Turkish border with Iraq. It should be noted that in northern Iraq, Turkey is carrying out active military efforts against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in an attempt to eliminate the infrastructure of the armed group in the area.

Some sources suggest that the explosion was a result of the PKK attack. However, this is unconfirmed.

    Probably incompetent ammo handling. Whatever it was, any fewer Turks is an improvement.
