SULAIMANI — Turkish warplanes hit targets in Qupi Sardaran near Warte sub-district and the Qandil Mountains on Wednesday (February 24).

A local resident told NRT that the bombs fell near a livestock pen. There were no immediate reports of causalities.

Turkey regularly carries out cross-border operations in northern Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, justifying its actions as necessary to combat the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has waged a decades-long insurgency for Kurdish rights in Turkey’s southeast and has its headquarters in Qandil.

At least twelve civilians were killed in Turkish airstrikes during Operation Claw-Eagle 1, which was launched in June.
