Turkish military base attacked in Northern Iraq

Turkish army servicemen opened fire on the local protesters, as they attacked the military base in Al-Amadiya, Northern Iraq. 

'Civilians near the city of Duhuk in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region protested in front of a Turkish military base to condemn Turkish airstrikes against civilians in the north, the source said' as CNN refers to a senior security official in Duhuk province

300 protesters inflitrated the military object and set two tanks  and several cars on fire. That resulted in a number of blasts. The Turks fired in response, which inflicted wounds on three people. 

'Turkey has been bombing areas in Iraqi Kurdistan, claiming to target Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants. Its airstrikes killed 36 people in the Kurdish region in 2018, according to official statistics released by local authorities in the Kurdish region. Turkey has long fought the PKK, an outlawed Kurdish group responsible for major terror attacks in Turkey as part of its bid for national ethnic autonomy. The European Union and the United States both have named the PKK a terrorist group', CNN concludes.
