On May 27, Turkey launched Operation Claw against the terrorist organization PKK in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq.
The ongoing offensive has neutralized dozens of terrorists so far.
PKK terrorists often use northern Iraq as a base to plan cross-border terrorist attacks on Turkey.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the EU- has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
