3 Turkish soldiers killed in Duhok operation
SULAIMANI — Turkey’s defense ministry said on Thursday (February 11) that three soldiers have been killed and three others wounded since the start of new military operations against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Duhok’s Amedi district on Wednesday.
The People’s Defense Forces (HPG), the military wing of the PKK, claimed it had killed nine Turkish soldiers, but has not commented on its own casualties.
Early on Wednesday, the Turkish military launched Operation Claw-Eagle 2 with combined operations involving airborne troops and airstrikes along Gara Mountain.
Turkish Consul-General in Erbil Hakan Karacay told NRT that Baghdad and Erbil were informed of the operation ahead of time.
“Our operation is just against the PKK. We have not hidden that we have had such an intention,” Karacay added.
