No civilian casualties in overnight Turkish airstrikes near Amedi

DUHOK, Kurdistan Region – Turkish jets overnight struck near Shiladze in the north of the Kurdistan Region. 

“The bombing claimed no civilian lives,” Darwesh Siri, assistant manager of Amedi Health, told Rudaw. 

They had sent ambulances to the area that came under fire and their teams remained on standby through the night as a precaution, he added. 

Turkish jets bombed the Ballende gorge, Khalid Rekani, a resident of Sire, a village less than a kilometer from the gorge, told Rudaw. 

The road to Ballende gorge has been temporarily closed after it was hit in the airstrikes, Warshin Salman, councilor from Shiladze, told Rudaw.

The area is near a well-travelled route and the bombing spread fear among the local population. 

The Turkish army claimed it had killed six PKK fighters in airstrikes in the Kurdistan Region on Friday. 

Turkey is carrying out an air and ground operation against the PKK in the Kurdistan Region, aiming for the PKK headquarters in the Qandil Mountains. 

Several civilians have been killed in airstrikes that have also been blamed as a factor in the many wildfires burning in the Kurdistan Region this summer.

Maybe the Turks caused most of those wildfires? Since they are using explosives. This might be their real intention beside of using biological warheads? Someone ever tried to get opcw to control what the Turks are actually doing there? What if turkey is poisiong all that soil. Beside biological there is nuclear waste material and chemicals that they could have been throwing down.

US only can trust the Kurds, it's been long due that he dumps Turkey and supports Kurds unconditionally.
