Today, Saturday, the President of the Republic, Abdul Latif Rashid, denounced the repeated Turkish attacks on the Kurdistan region of Iraq, the latest of which was the Sulaymaniyah airport.
President Rashid said in a statement received by (Baghdad Today) that "Turkish military operations are repeated in the Kurdistan region, the latest of which was the bombing of the Sulaymaniyah civilian airport."
The President of the Republic added, "While we condemn these blatant attacks on Iraq and its sovereignty, we affirm that there is no legal justification that authorizes the Turkish forces to continue their approach of terrorizing safe civilians under the pretext of the presence of opposing forces on Iraqi soil."
He called on the "Turkish government to take responsibility, offer an official apology for these actions, stop these attacks, and solve their internal problems by opening channels of dialogue with the concerned parties."
"If these attacks are repeated, there will be a firm stance to prevent their recurrence in the future," he added.
Earlier, a security source reported that a drone was intended to target the commander of the Syrian Kurdish forces, Abd Mazloum, while he was at Sulaymaniyah airport on his return to Syria.
Yesterday, Friday, Sulaymaniyah airport was bombed by a Turkish drone that took place near the airport building, without causing any casualties.
