Turkish forces kill 3 PKK militants in N Iraq


) Turkish security forces killed three militants of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in northern Iraq’s Zap region, the military said Wednesday.

This was part of the ongoing Operation Claw-Lock by the Turkish armed forces in northern Iraq, according to a Turkish Defense Ministry statement.

In January, the ministry said Turkey wiped out almost all PKK militants in the Zap region, adding 506 PKK militants had been eliminated since the cross-border Operation Claw-Lock against the PKK militants was launched in April, 2022.

Turkish security forces have recently intensified cross-border operations against the PKK in northern Iraq, particularly in the Qandil Mountains, the main base of the group, and killed several senior PKK cadres.

The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, has rebelled against the Turkish government for more than three decades.
