HEAD­QUAR­TERS

Iraq’s for­eign min­istry on Fri­day sum­moned Tur­key’s am­bas­sador in Bagh­dad to protest over what it called re­peated airspace vi­o­la­tions, af­ter Turk­ish war­planes ear­lier car­ried out strikes against Kur­dish mil­i­tants in north­ern Iraq. Hours ear­lier, the Turk­ish mil­i­tary said on Twit­ter it had killed eight mil­i­tants from the out­lawed Kur­dis­tan Work­ers’ Party (or PKK) in airstrikes tar­get­ing re­gions in north­ern Iraq. Tur­key has reg­u­larly car­ried out such ac­tions as Pres­i­dent Tayyip Er­do­gan pur­sues his stated aim of end­ing the mil­i­tant group’s pres­ence near Tur­key’s bor­ders. Ankara has also threat­ened to launch a ground of­fen­sive in north­ern Iraq.
