The Directorate General of Counter-Terrorism of the Kurdistan Region Security Council reported that drones carried out the Turkish attack.

"The Turkish drones targeted two vehicles, three headquarters, and a center for PKK militants in Sinjar mountain in the west of the district killing and injuring fighters, including a PKK military official named "Ali Sheer."

The Turkish military has regularly attacked PKK positions in the mountains of northern Iraq, where several thousand militants are believed to be holed up.

PKK is designated a terrorist group by Ankara, the European Union, and the United States.
