Turkish Tanks Enter Northern Iraq
Turkish tanks entered northern Iraq and were heading towards a Kurdish militant camp, Turkish media reported Tuesday.
The army’s incursion is part of the reaction to last week’s series of attacks by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in which 24 Turkish soldiers and policemen were killed in the border province of Hakkari.
Turkey responded with air raids on PKK camps in northern Iraq, which it uses as bases to attack Turkey.
The target of the latest operation was a PKK camp in Haftanin, around 20 kilometres over the border.
The incursion is being denied by an Iraq border official and also the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, the rebel group operating out Iraq’s Kurdish region and is the target of Turkish forces, Agence France Presse reported.
