Turkey says “neutralised” many militants in north Iraq air strikes

Turkish air strikes in north Iraq on Sunday night resulted in the destruction of numerous Kurdish militant targets, including their depots and shelters, according to Turkey’s defense ministry. This came after a Kurdish group claimed responsibility for a bomb attack in Ankara earlier in the day. The attack in Ankara involved two attackers detonating a bomb near government buildings, resulting in the death of both attackers and the injury of two police officers. The outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) claimed responsibility for the attack. The defense ministry stated that a total of 20 targets, including caves, bunkers, shelters, and depots, were destroyed, and many militants were “neutralized,” meaning they were killed. The air strikes took place in the Metina, Hakurk, Qandil, and Gara regions of northern Iraq, with precautions taken to avoid harm to civilians and the environment. CCTV footage showed a vehicle approaching the Interior Ministry’s main gate, with one occupant walking towards the building before an explosion occurred. The blast killed one attacker, while the other was killed by authorities. This attack was the first in Ankara since 2016 and coincided with the opening of the new parliamentary session. The PKK, designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union, has been engaged in an insurgency in southeast Turkey since 1984, resulting in over 40,000 deaths. In the past, Kurdish militants, Islamic State, and other groups have been involved in a series of attacks in Turkish cities.
