Aircraft bomb near village north of Sulaimani, setting farmland ablaze
[Rudaw] Aircraft bombed a village in Sulaimani province on Tuesday, burning through a large swathe of farmland, a local official has said.

The bombing struck close to the Sharbazher district village of Galala, approximately 50 kilometers north of Sulaimani city center, at around 11:00 am, Mawat area mayor Kamaran Hassan told Rudaw.

Hassan said he suspected the strikes were carried out by The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
, who have previously bombed the area "a dozen times".

The strikes did not cause any casualties, but "scorched a large swathe of farmlands and pastures," Hassan said.

The fires caused by the strike have not yet been put out, he added.

Turkey launched ongoing air offensive Operation Claw-Eagle on June 15, with the stated aim of removing bases belonging to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) from Kurdistan Region-Turkey border areas. Operations have mainly, though not exclusively, focused on areas in Duhok province’s Zakho district, where villagers living in its mountains have borne the brunt of the bombing.

Seven civilians have been killed since Claw-Eagle began, and many villages have been abandoned by residents fearful of Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
