MOSCOW, October 9 – Novosti. The Turkish military base Zlikan, located in the province of Ninewa in northern Iraq, came under rocket fire, reports Shafaq.
An agency source in the security agencies said that three rockets were fired at the Zlikan base, located northeast of the city of Mosul , two of them fell near the object, the third – in the village.
In turn, local authorities said that the base was fired at by two rockets, both of which did not reach the target.
The armed conflict with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party began in Turkey in 1984 and resumed in 2015. In northern Iraq, there are PKK bases against which the Turkish Armed Forces conduct air and ground operations. The Turkish military presence in the Zlikan camp northeast of Mosul has long been a source of controversy between Baghdad and Ankara, which justifies the presence as a need to fight the banned PKK in Turkey.
