Unfortunately during the operations in Metina Infantry Enlisted Private Vedat ZORBA fell martyr in result of an IED explosion. He is the first martyr who was martyred in combat from the start of the new operation in this area. May Allah accept his martyrdom!

Turkish intelligence neutralized high-ranking representatives of the terrorist organization PKK Khadija Kaya (call sign Nujyan Isyan) and Heva Kivelcek (call sign Diljin Azadi), who were preparing to attack the Hakurk operational zone in northern Iraq.

It is reported that their plans were revealed by employees of the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) of Turkey through agents embedded in the PKK. During the operation, both terrorists were eliminated, - Azerbaijani websites write.

PKK allegedly shot down an Aksungur UAV with an Iranian supplied "358" missile. There is a big chance that the missiles are stocked and positioned in Gara which automatically makes Gara target of big importance. The presence of the "358" missile in Gara may result in very serious difficulties towards the accomplishment of the predetermined goals of the Claw-Lock operation. Interesting times are coming.

UAV belonging to the terrorist organization PKK was shot down in the north of Iraq.

PKK's UAV tests fail.

An X-UAV Talon belonging to the PKK was identified.

It is known that the PKK terrorist organization has previously carried out this type of UAV/drone tests and received unsuccessful results.

In the images, it was seen that a new receiving antenna system was integrated compared to previous UAV/drone variants.

It is wondered which countries or groups the terrorist organization received support from to develop their UAV/drone program.


It is known that the YBS received drone training by Iran and were also supplied drones.

Meanwhile what is happening in PKK/YBS controlled territories? 4 girls of Arab origins were kidnapped so they can forcefully join the YBS ranks. After the families of the girls reached out to the Iraqi Army negotiations for their release were started. In result of the negotiations the 4 girls were released.

Very serious movement started in the Zap-Metina area between the villages of Sergele and Berci. Attack helicopters are active.

It is thought that the operation is entering a new phase.

PKK shared a video which shows a couple of suicide drone attacks against TSK positions from 2 days ago. No casualties in these attacks, but the situation is very serious. Yesterday we posted the pictures of malfunctioned/shot down suicide drone. PKK are intensifying their work on their suicide drone programs as they also received the "358" missile from Iranian proxies in Iraq.

It is thought that we may have witnessed an air assault operation targeting Tepe Bahar.

After the intense work on preventing regular logistics flow from Gara towards Tepe Bahar, the gaining of full control over Gapnerk Mountain and the targeting of the tunnel networks in the east side of Metina camp we came to a phase where Tepe Bahar was a matter of time. Apart from the regular airstrikes on Tepe Bahar tonight we witnessed an intense T-129 Atak activity. This may be a sign that positions were suppressed meanwhile soldiers were dropped by helicopters at predetermined locations. I think it will become clear in a couple of days. We are expecting a PKK statement soon apart from other open source information.

Instead of blaming US supplying drones to PKK what is our excuse? Why is there no any protection against drones?

It is high time that our companies develop anti drone drones

New Kamikaze Drone SAGAN to Hunt Down Threats:
- ASISGUARD has developed an FPV drone with a range of capabilities in collaboration with KZ Mekatronik.
- The FPV drone SAGAN, which allows users to see from the drone's perspective, will bring the attributes of its namesake bird—silent, fast, and sharp observational skills—to the modern battlefield.
- Developed to support land and air operations, SAGAN can transform into a kamikaze drone with its onboard explosives to neutralize threatening drones when needed. It can also perform surveillance and interception tasks in high-risk enclosed areas like caves.

EDIT: And Fedai?

Don’t even need kinetic countermeasures. FOBs are numbered, say 100 at most. We already have dazzler and radar combinations that would make quick work of any camera in the sky. They’re just not deployed in sufficient numbers. Today it was a camera, tomorrow it will be a mortar round.

TSK has the needed equipment to counter such attacks both in the way of EH and hard kill systems in the area, but the location at which the latest attacks has its specifics which don't allow TSK to take the needed measures. I am sure that soon a solution will be developed, but it may take a bit of time.

We also may not see this solution immediately after it is deployed due to OPSEC concerns. The exact location is very sensitive in this context.

Every component of the İhtar system can be carried on S70.
