Turkey conducts strikes ‘five times’ around village northeast of Duhok

Smoke rises after Turkish warplanes carry out airstrikes five times in areas around Mzhi village in Duhok province, June 24, 2021.

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Turkey bombed areas around a village in the Kurdistan Region’s Deraluk sub-district on Thursday, a local official said.

Turkish warplanes carried out airstrikes “five times” against targets around Mzhi village in the sub-district between 05:30 and 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, said Deraluk director Sami Ushana.

“There were no casualties but damaged the forests in the village,” he told Esta Media Network.

The strikes came one day after the Turkish fighter jets bombed several villages in Amedi district on Wednesday, igniting fire in the forests of the area.

Turkey has taken its decades-old conflict with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (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.
