BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Turkish Air Force ‘neutralized’ four members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, the Turkish General Staff stated this morning.

The Turkish General Staff said its fighter jets conducted several airstrikes over the Zap-Avasin Basyan regions of northern Iraq.

No further details were released by the Turkish General Staff.

The Turkish military is reportedly preparing for an offensive against the PKK forces that are believed to be headquartered in Iraq’s Qandil Mountains.

Earlier this month, the Turkish military advanced approximately 26 km south of the border towards the Qandil Mountains.

Since then, the Turkish military has positioned themselves near the Qandil Mountains in preparation for this upcoming operation.
