Cattle died after Turkey attacked areas in Iraqi Kurdistan

Shafaq News/ On Saturday, Turkish warplanes struck a village within the Darkar district of Zakho in the Kurdistan Region.

A security source told Shafaq News Agency that the attack resulted in the death of many cattle.

It is worth noting that the Turkish bombardment continued for two days in the border areas.

Last April, Ankara launched an action called "Operation Claw Lock," A part of its Claw operations, to "prevent terror attacks" and ensure border security following an assessment that the PKK was planning a large-scale attack.

Turkey regularly launches air strikes into northern Iraq, a region where it has repeatedly sent commandos to support its offensives.

In 2020, Turkey launched operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle in the border regions of northern Iraq to "ensure the safety of the Turkish people and frontiers."

The PKK took up arms against the Turkish state in 1984. More than 40,000 people have been killed in the conflict, which in the past was mainly focused on southeast Turkey.

PKK is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union.
