Two units of Turkish special forces have crossed into northern Iraq to fight Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)
Today, Turkish security forces has crossed the Iraqi border to fight Kurds, again:
“Turkish security forces crossed the Iraqi border as part of the hot pursuit of PKK terrorists who were involved in the most recent attacks,” PressTV cited a Turkish government source on Tuesday.
In the morning, 50 Turkish warplanes took part in six-hour raids against the PKK positions in northern Iraq killing 35 to 40 PKK fighters. In a separate development, at least three Turkish police officers were killed in a rocket-propelled grenade attack by PKK fighters in the Cizre town.
It seems that the Erdogan’s administration fights ISIL in an interesting way: Turkey anti-ISIL airstrikes constantly target Kurds. In turn, PKK attacks Turkish police and soldiers.
