Turkish warplanes conduct strikes in Qandil, Asos mountains in Kurdistan

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Turkish warplanes bombed the foothills of Qandil and Asos mountains in the Kurdistan Region on Friday, Esta Media Network reporters said.

Esta’s reporters said the Turkish fighter jets bombed Zargali village in the foothills of Qandil mountains on Friday evening.

The Turkish planes also carried out airstrikes against targets in Asos mountain near the village of Kani Tu, they added.

There were no casualties in the strikes, the reporters noted, but caused fears among villagers.

Turkey intermittently conducts airstrikes against suspected positions of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region.

Turkey has taken its decades-old conflict with the PKK deep into the Kurdistan Region, establishing military bases and deploying armed military drones against the fighters in their mountain strongholds.

Most of the operations have focused on territory up to 30 km (20 miles) from the border.
