SULAIMANI (ESTA) — A civilian was killed in a Turkish strike in the Kurdistan Region’s Kani Mase sub-district on Friday, a local official said.

Director of Kani Mase sub-district Sarbast Sabri said Turkish warplanes bombed areas around the village of Disheshe in Kani Mase, killing a 50-year-old civilian.

“A piece of rocket hit the civilian who is a resident of Zakho but visited the village to water his agricultural field,” Sabri told Esta Media Network.

Separately, clashes erupted between the Turkish military and the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) near the village on Friday morning, he said.

Turkey has taken its decades-old conflict with the PKK deep into northern Iraq, 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.
