TURKISH JETS SHELL KURDISTAN REGION, CUTTING POWER TO 30 VILLAGES

SULAIMANI – Turkish warplanes shelled a number of villages in the Kurdistan Region on Wednesday (January 18) suspecting Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) bases in the areas.

NRT correspondent Ramal Ahmed said four Turkish jets bombarded the villages of Khwakurk, Ari, Bn Diwana, Gali Khwakurk and Gali Zraranyan in the Sidakan sub-district, northeast of the Kurdistan Region’s capital of Erbil.

The correspondent added that the strikes had caused power cuts in 30 villages in the sub-district.

Ahmed also said the warplanes bombarded several other villages in the foothills of the Qandil Mountains in the Kurdistan Region.

The Turkish military said in a statement that Turkish jets targeted eight PKK positions during the operation on the Qandil Mountains.

PKK members, who have fought a three-decade insurgency in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast, have been regularly targeted by Turkish warplanes since a two-year ceasefire collapsed almost two years ago.

Military jets have carried out strikes inside the Kurdistan Region targeting PKK bases after the ceasefire between the military and the guerrilla group collapsed in July 2015.

Turkey then increased its air strikes within the Kurdistan Region following a suicide bombing in Ankara on March 13.

I am certain Donald Trump shall give free reign to Turkey to do as they like in the former no fly zone. America Great America has made, has created, the northern Kurdish Autonomous zone and Make America Great Again can disassemble it when it appears convenient in the interests of the United States.

Its the American way. Look for greater and greater Erdogan Turkish Putin Russian Trump American cooperation.
