Turkish drones carried out strikes in Iraqi Kurdistan on Thursday, killing four civilians, Roj News reported.
The strikes occurred as Turkey’s Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan visited the region and held talks with semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government officials.
A village in Pêncîwên was bombed three times by Turkish forces, while drone strikes killed four people in Biradost.
Following his meetings in Baghdad on Wednesday, Fidan travelled to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), where he met with the leader of the ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Masoud Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Nechirvan Barzani, Prime Minister Masrour Barzani. The main focus of Fidan’s visit to Erbil was Turkey’s ongoing military offensive against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region.
The KDP has recently been accused of actively supporting and collaborating with Turkish forces in their operations.
