Shafaq News/ Turkish drones stuck on Thursday sites of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Sinjar District.

A local source told Shafaq News Agency that Turkiye bombarded a PKK hideout in Sinjar Mountain, where the Party dug many tunnels and caves to protect itself from the Turkish attacks.

The source did not provide further details about the size of the damage of casualties.

On October 2020, The Iraqi government announced that Baghdad had reached a “historic deal” with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) over the governance and security of Sinjar.

The deal paves the way for the reconstruction of the city and the total return of its people in coordination with the Kurdistan Regional Government.

The agreement also ends the authority of intruding groups. It also ordered all armed factions to be deported outside the borders of Sinjar, including PKK.

Yet, Sinjar Protection Forces are still deployed in the District.

Sinjar falls within an area disputed between the central government in Baghdad and the KRG, based in Erbil, according to Article 140 of the Iraqi constitution.
