Three Turkish diplomats shot dead in Irbil

Armed gunmen in military uniforms opened fire on Wednesday on a restaurant in the Iraqi Kurdistan capital of Irbil, killing at least 3 Turkish diplomats. Ankara blamed the Turkish Kurdish separatist PKK.  DEBKAfile’s sources add that the shooting was apparently in retaliation for a wave of Turkish air strikes on PKK bases in northern Iraq.

    Yes, the Kurds absolutely deserve to live in peace and security in their own country without constant genocidal attacks by enemies such as Erdogan. Meanwhile, the world media hardly ever mentions the terrible crimes perpetrated against Kurdish men women and children.
