PKK attack on Turkish military base in northern Iraq kills 2 servicemen – Defense Ministry

Ankara, Sep 18 (Sputnik) Two officers of the Turkish Armed Forces were killed in northern Iraq in an attack launched by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on a military facility belonging to Ankara, the Defense Ministry said on Friday.
Turkey has considered the PKK as a terrorist organization and launched in mid-June the anti-Kurdish offensive, dubbed Claw-Tiger. Following this step, the Iraqi Foreign Ministry has twice handed a note of protest to the Turkish ambassador, as Baghdad sees such actions to be violations of the country’s sovereignty.
"The soldiers were martyred, and another was injured in an attack by the terrorists to the Operation Claw-Tiger area in northern Iraq on Thursday," the ministry said in a statement, as quoted by the official Anadolu news agency.
