Turkish shelling ignites fires in farms and forests in Duhok


Shafaq News / A local official in Amadiya district in Duhok governorate said on Thursday that the Turkish shelling has renewed on a Christian village in the governorate.

Serpest Akrawi, director of Kani Masi district, told Shafaq News agency that, "the bombing set fire to farms and forests in the area".

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.
