SULAIMANI (ESTA) — The Kurdistan National Congress (KNK) is expected to send a delegation to the Kurdistan Region to gain unity among Kurds against Turkish attacks on the Region.
A KNK delegation led by the group’s co-leader Zainab Murad will pay a visit to the Kurdistan Region in the coming days, media affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) reported on Monday.
It will discuss Turkish attacks with parties in the Kurdistan Region, according to the report.
“The KNK’s goal is to gain unity of the political parties against those attacks,” the PKK-affiliated media said.
Turkey launched a new ground and air defensive against the PKK fighters in Duhok province last month. The Turkish military has entered more than 10 kilometers deep into the Kurdistan Region. It also set up four new military points in Duhok province.
The Turkish military has established a dozen military bases in the Kurdistan Region’s border areas with Turkey as part of a military campaign against the PKK.
Turkey regularly carries out air and ground attacks against the PKK in northern Iraq. It says neither the Iraqi government nor the Kurdish government has taken measures to combat the group.
