On the 8th of May, the Turkish Air Force carried out a number of raids in northern Iraq against supposed positions of the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK). The strikes made good the recent promise of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that Turkey would continue to attack PKK targets in Syria and Iraq despite complaints of sovereignty violation coming from both the Damascus and Baghdad governments.

Kurdish activists living in northern Iraq claim a number of areas throughout northern Iraq were struck by Turkish warplanes. Virtually all airstrikes were observed in the Amadiya District and included the village of Derashe (reportedly stuck 6 times), a number of sites in the Kurazhari Mountains and positions near the villages Kirk and Bnavia.

Most of the areas hit by these airstrikes, have also fallen victim to Turkish artillery bombardment in preceding days and weeks.
