Drone Strike Targets PKK Members in Sulaymaniyah

ERBIL — A drone hit a vehicle in Sulaymaniyah province on Thursday, reportedly killing four people said to be members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

According to the information obtained by BasNews, three PKK members were targeted in a pickup vehicle in Kuna Masi resort of Sulaymaniyah’s Sahrbazher.

Kamaran Abdullah, head of the local administration of Gapilon told BasNews that several civilians were also hit by the strike, however it was not clear if they were killed or injured.

The drone most likely belongs to the Turkish army as Ankara has launched a massive operation in the recent days against the PKK inside Kurdistan Region territories.

BasNews has learned that security forces have cordoned off the area with ambulances rushing the victims to the hospital.
