Rocket Attack on Turkish Army Base in Iraq

76

Eight rockets were fired at the Turkish army base of Zilkan in Ninawa province in northern Iraq on Wednesday. The anti-terror services of the Kurdish Autonomous Region report this.

 

Two projectiles came down inside the base, but there were no casualties.

Turkey has had dozens of military positions in northern Iraq for 25 years, mainly in Iraqi Kurdistan, which has no choice but to tolerate that presence.

The Turkish army is fighting in the region against the Turkish-Kurdish rebels of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which Turkey and the West classify as a “terrorist” group.

In July, artillery attacks on a recreational area in Kurdistan killed nine more civilians, mostly Iraqi tourists from the south and centre of the country.
