Peste 1.000 de militari turci ar fi angajaţi, pe teritoriul Irakului, în lupta contra Statului Islamic

There are between 1,000 and 2,000 Turkish forces in Bashiqa according to Jabar Yawar, the chief of staff of the Kurdish Peshmerga Ministry.

“The Turks have gone there in agreement with the Baghdad government. We have no coordination, no relation and have made no requests for their deployment to that area,” said Mr Yawar.

The Iraqi government and the Kurdish regional government both claim the other is responsible for the Turkish presence.

Ankara’s move has drawn furious protest from the Iraqi government in Baghdad, as it signals a growing entente between the Turkish government and the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) under President Masoud Barzani.
