ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - For a third day in a row, the Sidakan area of northern Erbil province came under Turkish bombardments.

Two Turkish warplanes bombed the villages of Sarchaman, Gali Rash, Bani, Harmousha, and the heights of Mount Khurk, creating fear among residents of these areas, Ihsan Chalabi, mayor of Sidakan town, told Rudaw.

He did not detail the material damages or human losses in the airstrikes.

The same areas were targeted by Turkish planes Wednesday and Tuesday, Rudaw’s correspondent in Soran Bakhtiyar Qadir reported.


Turkey has been engaged in decades’ long border clashes with guerrillas of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

Turkey regularly carries out air raids against alleged PKK positions in the Kurdistan Region. The PKK has its headquarters in Kurdistan’s Qandil mountains.

PKK just makes problems for bashur people. They are not from bashur why they build their headquarters there why not in turkey or in Rojava by their ideological brothers?

This is like a comedy. They, Turks, Arabs and Pers, are doing all they can against Kurds, but you are still with them. And not a word against the despot in Ankara. Next time they might bombing Arbil. Time to wake up and tell them to go to hell!

Do they clean up after their picnic, or leave a heap of garbage behind them, like scavenging coyotes?
