BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Turkey’s new military operation in northern Iraq is allegedly meant to ‘block’ the U.S.’ support to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the Yeni Safak publication reported.

Dubbed “Operation Claw”, Yeni Safak said a 2,500-strong force is looking to cut off the PKK from their alleged Syria supply line. Furthermore, the publication claimed the Turkish Army is planning to destroy their bases and arms depots in northern Iraq.

The Turkish military operation is looking to secure the Hakurk-Duhok-Zap line near the Syrian border, which has been allegedly used to supply the PKK with weapons, food, and medicine.

This operation was launched by the Turkish Armed Forces on Wednesday; it has so far targeted the Qandil Mountains of northern Iraq, which the PKK currently has a large presence in.

The U.S. maintains they do not provide support to the PKK, despite the Turkish regime’s accusations.

Really? How fascinating. So you’re saying that Kurds are members of the Klu Klux Klan, and are “traitors” to someone or other (but you don’t mention who). How intelligent you are.

Cyprus is member of the E.U.. Art 47(2) of E.U. constitution is equivalent to NATO’s Charter Chapter 5. Moreover, the EU has the necessary means, just by soft power, to totally suffocate Turkish economy at a level Iran is not even experiencing through US sanctions, and Rouhani just said a few days ago that it was even worst than they went through during the Iran-Iraq war worst moments… Turkey was doing well, made huge money from tourism, was about entering… Read more »
