Turkey strikes Iraqi Kurdistan

Turkey bombs Kurdish region in Iraq after diplomat killed Turkish diplomat was killed at a restaurant in Erbil
Steven Clarke | 19 July, 2019, 18:26

There was no claim of responsibility for the shooting, but many Iraqi experts have pointed to the probability that the Turkish separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which Ankara considers a terrorist group, was behind the attack.

A Turkish diplomat was killed after an unidentified gunman opened fire in a restaurant in the Iraqi city of Erbil on Wednesday.

At least one Turkish diplomat was shot dead in a restaurant in northern Iraq.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry said the victim had been "martyred as a result of a heinous attack" and called on Iraqi and regional authorities "to find the perpetrators of the attack swiftly".

Mousavi also stressed that the only way to combat terrorism is concerted action by the global community by putting an end to the political, financial, ideological, and arms support for the terrorist groups.

Mr Trump also called "on other nations to protect their ships as they go through the straight and work with us in the future". It was seized south of the Iranian island of Larak, the Guards said without detailing the name or provenance of the vessel.

Ibrahim Kalin, the spokesman for the Turkish president, vowed: "the necessary response will be given to those who committed this treacherous attack".

An airstrike by Turkish forces has destroyed the targets such as "armaments positions, lodgings, shelters and caves belonging to terrorists" on Thursday.

Armed Kurdish groups are involved in a protracted conflict with the Turkish authorities, demanding their own autonomous state.

The prime minister has said he is looking at strengthening the Kurdish regional government's relationship with Turkey. Police sources said two other people were also killed.

Turkey has been conducting a ground offensive and bombing campaign to root out the PKK from the Qandil mountains since May.
