SULAIMANI — Turkish warplanes twice bombed targets in Duhok governorate’s Dinarat sub-district, hearing areas near Guahana and Mimber villges on Friday (April 16), with no casualties immediately reported

NRT reporter Shakira Zebari said that the bombardment was near residential area, but the extent of the damage is not yet known.

Turkey has been conducting intense military operations in the Kurdistan Region and northern Iraq since June 15. Ankara says that the operations are necessary to protect itself from attacks by Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) fighters.

At least twelve civilians have been killed in airstrikes since then.
