The Turkish Ministry of Defense published scenes on Wednesday of the airstrikes launched by their Air Force on the sites of the Kurdistan Workers Party, as part of Operation Tiger Claw.

The Turkish Ministry of Defense confirmed that their aircraft and ground forces destroyed “terrorist targets” in the Haftanin area, which is in the northern part of the country.
In the past years, the Turkish forces have carried out intensive operations against the PKK, whom they consider terrorists, in both Iraq and Syria, saying that this is in response to attacks launched or planned by elements of the Kurdistan Workers Party, which Turkey has been fighting the Turkish military for nearly four decades inside and outside the country.
