Turkish military base attacked by missile in Iraq: Iraqi media
Iraqi media reports on a new missile attack carried out against the Turkish Baberni military base in Iraqi Kurdistan Duhok Province.
The Turkish Baberni military base in northern Iraq came under attack by a Konkurs ATGM missile on Sunday, according to Iraqi media sources.
The attack on the base in Iraqi Kurdistan Duhok Province comes after a guided missile attack targeted the same base on Wednesday.
A published video showed the missile accurately hitting a bulldozer in the base and destroying it.
Turkey has deployed its troops in areas of northern Iraq and Syria under the pretext of fighting Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants and is carrying out aerial attacks on parts of the northern areas of these countries.
Attacks in Syria
On August 16, three soldiers were killed and six others were injured in an attack on several locations in the Aleppo countryside by the Turkish occupation.
According to a military source, the attack was part of the Turkish regime's continuous support for armed terrorist groups.
A day before, the city of Ayn Al-Arab, also known as Kobani, and its countryside in the north of Aleppo witnessed military escalations of immeasurable violence.
The exchange of shelling between the Turkish army and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has resulted in the deaths of civilians and members of the Syrian army deployed in the area by an airstrike launched by a Turkish fighter jet on Jarqali Hill, west of the city of Ayn Al-Arab.
Consequently, Minister of Defense, Gen. Ali Mahmoud Abbas, urged the international community at the Moscow Int’l Security Conference to "exert pressure to lift the unjust coercive measures imposed on Syria by the US and Western regimes.”
“We stress the necessity of ending the American and Turkish occupation of Syrian territories in order to extend the State’s control over them and to be able to invest in their resources that are subject to looting and theft,” Gen. Abbas said.
General Abbas affirmed that Russia, with its political and military leadership, headed by President Vladimir Putin, and in cooperation with its allies, is able to put an end to US arrogance and European intransigence, restore things to as they should, and reestablish respect for international law.
Attacks in Iraq
Al Mayadeen correspondent reported that the Turkish-operated Zilkan military base in Bashiqa, east of Nineveh governorate was targeted by several rockets on August 25.
Days before, the correspondent in Baghdad also reported that Turkish warplanes targeted the village of Sigiri in the Dohuk governorate in northern Iraq.
This was preceded by Turkish helicopters raiding Sidekan in Soran District, Erbil Governorate, northern Iraq. The attack resulted in fires breaking out in a number of agricultural lands.
It is noteworthy that Turkish planes are constantly targeting villages in the Dohuk governorate, where, on July 20, Turkish raids targeted the Barkh resort, killing a number of civilians and wounding dozens.
It is worth noting that Turkey had launched a cross-border military offensive against PKK militants in northern Iraq in an operation that was officially announced on April 18. The operation drew condemnation from Iraq, with the presidency saying that Ankara's operation "poses a threat" to Iraqi national security.
