Turkish shelling ignites fires in agricultural lands in Duhok


Shafaq News / Turkish fighters bombed on Thursday villages in Kani Masi district, north of Duhok Governorate.

Witnesses told Shafaq News agency that the bombing ignited fires in agricultural lands in the vicinity of the district.

Turkish aerial and artillery forces have been intensively bombing border areas in Kurdistan Region since June 21, 2020, under the pretext of the presence of anti-Ankara Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters.

The attacks led to human and material losses in border villages in Kurdistan Region, which prompted the regional government's condemnation and the Iraqi government's summoning of Turkey's ambassador to Baghdad more than once.

For years, the Turkish army has been carrying out military operations against Kurdish militants, whom it considers terrorists, in response to attacks carried out or planned by PKK militants.
