The Rudaw News network stated that “the Turkish Air Force and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards bombed the village of Anah, which belongs to the Haji Imran district,” stressing that the attack primarily focused on the border region, which is believed to have a Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) presence.

The network explained that “the bombing started at nine in the morning,” adding that “drones were used in the bombing.”

For its part, the Kurdistan 24 channel reported that “reconnaissance planes flew over the area, and shortly after leaving the airspace, Iran launched a barrage of artillery shells at the border areas.”

The Turkish Ministry of Defense said their forces hit 81 targets during the start of the operation, but did not comment on the allegation that they struck a refugee camp in the Makhmour region.
