ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Turkish warplanes bombed Mount Asos near the town of Mawat in Sulaimani on Sunday, the second such bombings in a week, said a local official.

"Turkish warplanes around 9:30 on Sunday bombed Mount Asos near Galala vilalge in Mawat," Kamaran Hassan, mayor of the town of Mawat told Rudaw.

The bombings caused no casualties, he confirmed.

The Turkish warplanes bombed the mountain for the first time on November 5.

"Today's bombings were more intense compared to the previous and lasted half an hour," he added.

There was no immediate denial and confirmation of the attacks by the Turkish military.

Members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and Iranian Kurdish Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK) are believed to have bases in the area.

Mount Asos in Mawat town in Sharbazher region, is 55 kilometers from Sulaimani.

Love Kurdistan | 12/11/2017
What a world we are in these days! All the four wild dogs (Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria) around us are barking and remind us of their true characters everyday. But we will prevail. We are much stronger than what they think. We are 40 million people who love every inch on our beloved homeland, KURDISTAN. 21st Century belongs to the Kurds. We will get our independence soon. No matter what.
The latest | 12/11/2017
The latest from Turkey : its president Erdogan is alarmed of the official demographic statistics indicating a higher birth rate in the Kurdish provinces than the Turish provinces. He has said he was concerend of the " higher birth rate among terrorists " , a statement that labels the Kurdish people as "terrorist". This explains his genocidal war on Kurds. So the Kurds can not feel any way safe in such conditions. Of course his statement indicates he is determined to exterminate the Kurdish nation . The world should mediate and clarify the situation of the Kurdish nation at risk of genocide .

corrupt mafia families have completly sold Basur to Iran and Turkey, as long as they get to keep their cross-border smuggling operations open they will let these despotic regimes do what ever they want. I feel the people are starting to be fed up with this situation, so the thieves should take their loot and leave Kurdistan

Regarding the first comment '21 Century belongs to Kurds': Well Erdogan says completely the same thing, even using the same words, except he is talking about the Turks !?!? But most-likely the 21 Century will be neither the Turks nor the Kurds in a positive aspect. Under the current circumstances, Turks & Kurds will be more-likely the main losers... let's hope I am wrong.
