1 min read


In an airstrike operation, the Turkish military, according to Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, targeted approximately 500 Kurdish sites in Iraq and Syria. 254 terrorists have been neutralized in the operation so far, according to Akar, who was quoted by the official Anadolu news agency. 471 targets have been hit. In defiance of international criticism, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pledged to launch a ground assault in Syria “with tanks and soldiers” on Tuesday. Following an explosion in Istanbul on November 13 that left 81 people injured and six dead, Turkey launched airstrikes. The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is designated as a terrorist organization by the European Union and the United States, was accused of the attack by Turkey.

The PKK, which has been fighting the Turkish government since 1984, denied involvement in the blast, which was the bloodiest in five years following a wave of strikes in Turkey between 2015 and 2017.
