SIDAKAN, Kurdistan Region – Turkish fighter jets have bombed areas near the town of Sidakan in the northeast of Erbil province. 

“Two jets were bombing four areas and one was monitoring the area,” Ihsan Chalabi, the mayor of Sidakan confirmed.

“On Sunday evening, at 4:10 pm, Turkish jets bombed Lelkan, Moslok, Del, and Bekhnok, damaging the bush of the area. But fortunately there were no human casualties,” he added.

“These bombings posed a danger to areas of Gorasher, Khalifan, Allakan, and Siran. Some people from the region had left their homes and returned home later,” he said. 

Turkey frequently carries out airstrikes on alleged Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) locations in the Kurdistan Region's mountains where the PKK has its headquarters.

As if Turkey isn't big enough without having to occupy any Kurdish homeland. Maybe one day they will see how unnecessary their violence is.

I hope the recent arms given by the US to the Kurds include Stinger (or whatever is the upgrade surface to air MANPAD) missiles.
