2023 Oct 15, 10:45, BAGHDAD

 A Turkish drone strike in northern Iraq on Saturday killed a senior member and two militants of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), the Counter-Terrorism Service of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region said in a statement.

They were killed at 5:30 p.m. local time (1430 GMT) when a Turkish drone attacked their vehicle on a road near the town of Amedi in Duhok province, the statement said.

The Turkish forces frequently carry out ground operations, airstrikes, and artillery bombardments in northern Iraq against the PKK, especially in the Qandil Mountains, the main base of the group.

The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the United States, and the European Union, has been rebelling against the Turkish government for more than three decades.
