The Turkish army has deployed major military forces in Iraqi Kurdistan‘s Hiror, Kette, and Konya Guzan districts, according to local sources.

Turkish forces are also bombing Mount Kêste in Berwarî, trying to completely control the area.

Turkey launched a military operation against Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) forces in Iraqi Kurdistan on April 23rd, targeting settlements in Metina, Zab, and Avashin where PKK forces are located.

Since the airstrikes, the Turkish army has started constantly passing soldiers in the area via helicopters.

There are reports that Turkish tanks have also moved towards this area and violated the Iraqi border.

Kurdish sources say the Turkish army has suffered casualties in the battles and that some helicopters have already been forced to withdraw.
