The protests were in response to deadly Turkish airstrikes that killed four people in the Rashava area in Deraluk sub-district at approximately 06:00 pm on Wednesday (January 23).

Turkey carries out regular air raids near the border against the PKK insurgent group which has bases in northern Iraq and has fought a decades-long insurgency in Turkey.

Kurdish security forces were able to disperse the protesters after a number of vehicles and tents were set ablaze.

Witnesses reported the sound of gunfire, but was not immediately clear whether Kurdish security forces or the Turkish military was responsible.

Also reported that Turkish combat aircraft flew low over the town – in at least one case dropping flares – to disperse protesters and frighten residents.

Turkey’s Defense Ministry wrote on Twitter: “An attack has occurred on one of bases located in northern Iraq as a result of provocation by the PKK terrorist organization. There was partial damage to vehicles and equipment during the attack.”

Without naming the base, the ministry said “necessary precautions are being taken regarding the incident.”
