On November 26, three Turkish service members were killed in northern Iraq in a daring raid by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
The raid targeted a position of the Turkish military located within the Operation Claw-Lock zone in the Kurdistan region. Kurdish Guerrilla fighters took advantage of poor weather conditions that allowed them to infiltrate the defenses around the position before clashing with Turkish troops there.
In separate statements, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense identified the three slain service members as Infantry Sergeant Eyyup Ugurlu, Contracted Private Mehmet Demir and Contracted Private Hakan koroglu.
The attack was not without losses for the PKK. The Kurdish group lost three of its fighters. A fourth one, a female fighter, was captured by Turkish troops.
Just a day earlier, Turkey acknowledged losing three service members in the Operation Claw-Lock zone to attacks by the PKK.
The Turkish military launched Operation Claw-Lock in northern Iraq on April 17. The main goal of the large-scale operation is to neutralize the remaining cells of the PKK in the areas of Metina, Zap and Avashin Basyan in Kurdistan.
The latest casualties brought to 70 the number of Turkish troops killed in the northern Iraqi region since the beginning of the operation.
Last week, Turkey escalated its strikes on Kurdish forces in Iraq as well as in neighboring Syria in the framework of a new operation codenamed Claw-Sword. Despite of Ankara’s military pressure, the PKK can still conduct effective defensive and offensive operations as evident by its recent attacks.
Türk ordusu geliyor.. winter is comming for some kurds Named qds
What do turkiye, azerbaijan, and pakistan all have in common? All fabricated “nations” on stolen land.

Good news from the Middle East. Six people who cannot reproduce and move to Europe.
Go to hell Erdogan and Turkey. Go Kurds!!!
You do know Kurdish gangs are stealing and killing civilians, just like Turkey?
Also, clown Turkey is part of NATO and Kurdish gangs are puppets of the US (another NATO member). Both of them have one goal which is to destroy Syria as best they can. Fun fact, Kurdish people own fuk all from N-Syria – they were never belong there and that is why the US putting more Arab in power for SDF.
You are cheering one of the terrorists group… remember Al-Qaeda and ISIL had their own differences and fight each other. Turkey vs Kurdish gangs isn’t different.
The Kurds are the troublemakers in service of the globalist cabal. The Iranian “protests”? 90% Kurds.
İran amerikanın kitabına secde etmiyor. Haraç vermiyor. Onurlu duruyor. Bu yüzden Amerika için şeytandır. Zalimdir… hehhheh. Ama Arabistan salak olduğu ve pası olduğu için iyi ülkedir. Demokratiktir. Hehhheh
Sacrifices on the bloody altar of R.Tyrant Erdogan.
