On February 14th, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar gave a press conference on the results of Turkey’s most recent operation in Northern Iraq – Claw Eagle 2.

He said that 48 PKK members were neutralized, including two senior members, in northern Iraq during Turkey’s operation that has been completed.

Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said two PKK members were captured and the region was mostly cleared of the terrorist group during the “extremely special and critical” operation in the Gara region.

“The operation has been completed. Our land and air elements returned to their bases and barracks safely,” he said at the operations center on the border in southeastern Şırnak province.

He said Turkey also wanted to confirm the intelligence about Turks who were abducted by terrorists, which was not disclosed for security reasons, and to take necessary measures.

During the campaign, more than 50 terrorist targets, including ammunition depots, caves and bases in Gara, were destroyed, he said.

Meanwhile, 3 PKK members attempting to escape Gara region on paramotors have been killed by Turkey’s armed drones, the Turkish defense ministry said.

Turkey also discovered the remains of 13 Turkish citizens in a cave in the Gara region.

“While our activities in the Operation Claw-Eagle 2 area were continuing, the remains of 13 citizens who were detained in a cave, which was taken under control following the intense clash, were found,” said Akar. “All of the terrorists in the cave that martyred our citizens were neutralized.”

Akar said three soldiers were killed and three others were injured in the land operation.

Highlighting that the operation was successfully carried out in difficult land and climatic conditions, covering a very large area, he congratulated Turkish Chief of General Staff Yaşar Güler and commanders.

David Satterfield, the United States ambassador to Turkey, has affirmed that the U.S. holds the PKK group responsible for the recent cave massacre in northern Iraq, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense (MSB) said in a statement.

the turks did nothing for nobody and their bases they placed are useless for them and only weights which drag them down and what would iran want with imposters be it pkk or this krg or any of them

Ahson

Farbat, the KRG wouldn’t exist if Iran removed its hand of support. Same same in Kabul. All the food, building materials, refined pet-chem and 1000 other goods go in from Iran. Nausherwan Barzani and Mr Ghani both know this. Iran can turn their world upside down in a heart beat and sic the oglu tglu goplu on them and same same with mr Ghani viz a viz the tali-bunnies if either of them ever fukked with Iran. Had Iran not intervened back in 2014, the KRG was done and dusted with by the Daesh and Al-Qaeda wahabbi’s. So both these militia type nations know their place in the pecking order……

farbat

these krg treat their own people worse than they treat their enemies but that doesnt mean that all the people under their occupation deserve to be wiped out by wahabis

farbat

point is iran does seek to do solve the issue more softly than the other parties but their push usually turns out to be a mistake for all who pushed for aggression and when it comes to iraq its either iraq or its iran they cant have it both ways and they certainly cant balkanize right infront of us

farbat

it is btw not irans place to deal with these kurd traitors this the iraqis place to do and if they cant than they also cant govern a nation which means iraq becomes iran

JIMI JAMES

As long as they don’t support cia/soros/nwo/france/brussels but turkey+region
Beats trying to sell cheap oil to the swiss only to become the eu-epp minion!

farbat

its all the same thing

farbat

if you order the pyramid down to its last bit you will have the whole bunch of it included and therefore they hate iran because it isnt included and you cant buy mcdonalds in iran but instead all of irans neighbors come into iran to buy iranian products

farbat

the entire “krg”region is economically already dependent on iran in many forms so iran basically puts a soft squeeze on them if it needs to
