Turkish jets hit PKK positions in Kurdistan Region

Turkish warplanes bombed the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) positions north of the governorate on Friday.

According to Shafaq News agency Turkish planes had struck PKK twice on Friday evening in the Matin Mountain range near the village of Sekiri in the Amadiyah district.
The PKK is a Kurdish militant group fighting for greater autonomy and rights for Kurds in Turkey since 1984. The group is designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union.
The Turkish military has conducted numerous airstrikes and ground operations against PKK targets in northern Iraq since the early 2000s. The operations have often sparked tensions between Turkey and Iraq, as the Iraqi government has criticized Turkey's actions as violating its sovereignty.
The operations have also been criticized by some human rights groups for causing civilian casualties and displacement in the affected areas.
