The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) media wing released a video showing a recent series of PKK attacks on the Turkish Army in southeastern Turkey. The video shows how the PKK uses anti-tank guides missiles and IEDs to target Turkish positions and vehicles.
In response to these attacks the Turkish Armed Forces carry out special operations and airstrikes against PKK targets in northern Iraq, the region used by the PKK as a foothold for attacks in southeastern Turkey.
On July 13, the Turkish Defense Ministry announced that 64 PKK members had been “neturalized” since Turkish troops, supported by artillery strikes and air raids, launched Operation Claw in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq on May 27.
