Could be us as well, since we do not have a love relation with Talabani. Make him feel who is the boss.

PKK sources reported that 100 vehicles belonging to the Turkish Armed Forces passed through the Serzeri border gate a couple days ago.


According to the statement of the PKK terrorist organization, the Turkish Armed Forces established bases in Selaze and Yekmale regions.

Peshmerga set up 3 checkpoints on the road between Yekmale and Amedi. In the Hakurk region, Peshmerga wanted to enter the region twice with 60 vehicles, but after PKK and Peshmerga fought, both sides withdrew. Peshmerga tried to enter the Berdespi region of Hakurk with 60 vehicles and the Gosine region with 6 vehicles, both of the initiatives resulted in fighting. After the clashes, PKK points were hit by TuAF.

For now we can confirm only the first part of the statement, the other part is PKK's claims and we can't say it's 100% true.

TSK's new supposed positions:

Reports also came about newly established 3 control points of the Peshmerga south of Seladiz. They will try to intercept PKK supplies coming from Gara.

London-based Al Arab newspaper announced that pro-Iran-supported Shiite groups in Iraq put pressure on the al-Sudani government and prevented a joint operation against the terrorist organization PKK alongside Turkiye.

Iraq Prime Minister's gov is virtually non-existent except as a sectarian client of foreign control led by Iran

This is likely related to the infrastructure project. To derail it they try to prevent cooperation on the terrorist front.

Turkish Armed Forces strengthen control in northern Iraq: 4 heights are taken in the Metina area.

As part of the operation in northern Iraq, the Turkish Armed Forces continue to demonstrate significant successes, taking control of four strategically important heights in the Metina area. It is reported that the heights designated as "Martyr Hassan", "Martyr Sorkvin", "Martyr Ezda" and "Martyr Dilbir" are now under the control of the Turkish army.

This operation, which began on April 16, significantly weakened the influence of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in the region, especially in the Metina camp. At the moment, the focus of the operation has shifted to the areas of Charchel and Golka, which have become the target of opposition from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK). In addition, the Turkish Armed Forces are active in the area between the villages of Asi and Khanka.

There is an advancement from the Amedi hill to the west to Golka and Selaza. According to PKK sources the operation in Metina crossed into a next phase. Together with this it is known that PKK started moving its Iraq cadres in Tal Rifat, Syria to Iraq so they can reinforce the Iraqi structure with manpower in front of a bigger Turkish intervention. It should be known that the operation in Metina is a preparation to what is really to come.

Golka is being hit by T-129 Atak helicopters and soldiers were deployed trough an air assault operation at 4 points in the area. TSK is also bringing bulldozers pointing at establishment of bases.

The Iraqi military was deployed at Kesan, Siyare, Seranis, Sabanike and Pirbela.

Also we got another good news! We talked earlier about the group that PKK sent earlier, last winter, which attacked our base area at the Hetit rocks on the Linik line. According to the latest information some members of this team were killed and other surrendered. Together with this the Sirin Mountain was cleared, taken under control and there is currently no terrorist activity on the eastern boundaries of Claw-Lock AO.

Together with this TSK airstrikes on Tepe Bahar continue.

are those villages emptied and torn down ?

leaving a ghost town of sorts would be bad as they can be used as base for terrorist and smugglers (which are run by terrorists anyway).

If they are evacuated, this means that the villages are already contaminated or there is a big danger to the civilians in these villages.

If we judge by the previous experiences with the villages emptied by Peshmerga earlier between Gara and Tepe Bahar, Peshmerga established control points and remaining PKK terrorists and depots in the vicinity of these villages are targeted by the Turkish Air Forces.

I bet my ass that Iran wouldn't dare to shoot back. Iran is a toothless tiger.
Probably would use their proxies in the region though to attack our bases in Syria, Iraq.

Mistranslation of "yok", it should have been "there are none" or just "none".

In short "yok" would require more than one word equivalent in english and other languages that have same / similar root as english.

In Japanese there is an equivalent "imasen". Hence why it's easier for Turks to apply their Turkish grammar to Japanese (overall to get decent sentences. :)

Iran will not retaliate over the border but with the usual missile and rocket attacks on our bases in Iraq. Their proxies did send missiles near and even at our bases in the past.
