Iraq has sent a note to Ankara following Turkey’s bombardment of a PKK camp in Northern Iraq on Wednesday.

 The note, delivered to the Turkish embassy in Baghdad, contained claims that many forest fires had occurred as a result of the bombing.

Baghdad administration claimed that Turkey had fired over 100 bombs into Northern Iraq.

 “The Turkish army bombs this area every day. There is no settlement. Nothing has happened to our civilians," said Nevzat Hadi Mevlud, the governor of Erbil.
