BAGHDAD: Four militants from the outlawed Turkish Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed on Friday in an airstrike by a Turkish drone in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region, Kurdish security sources said.

A statement by the regional Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS) said in a brief statement that four died and one was injured when a Turkish drone bombed a car belonging to the PKK near a grain silo in the town of Kalar, some 120 km south of Iraq’s northeastern city of Sulaimaniyah.

The Turkish forces frequently carry out ground operations, airstrikes, and artillery bombardments in northern Iraq, especially the Qandil Mountains, the main base of the PKK.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union.
