Turkish drone strike
The Arab Parliament expressed its readiness to work with Iraq to mobilize regional and international support to stop the Turkish attacks on the Iraqi soil, following the death of two Iraqi border guards as a result of a Turkish drone strike on Aug. 11. The Arab League similarly condemned the Turkish drone attack saying that Turkey's action is "a blatant violation of Iraq's sovereignty."
A Turkish drone strike killed two Iraqi border guard officers and the driver of the vehicle they were in, Iraq's army said in a statement on Aug. 11. The strike happened as the officers "were in meetings with PKK fighters," Ihsan al-Chalabi, mayor of Sidekan in northeastern Iraq, said.
