Iraq: Turkish airstrike kills 10 Kurds

(Ankara) The Turks have today revealed that they carried out airstrikes inside Iraq against Kurds who are fighting ISIS. Targeting the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), the Turkish air force hit PKK bases in the Zap and Sinat-Haftanin regions of northern Iraq. Claiming that they have hit terrorist sites, the Turks state they destroyed four shelters, three weapon establishments and 10 people.

Why am I not surprised at how the Turks are targeting one of the most successful groups to have taken on ISIS? The same Turkey, I should add, which goes all cock a hoop when Israel takes out actual terrorists with better targeting and a smaller death toll. But when they do the same, it's move along, there’s nothing to see here.
