Hundreds of refugees escaping the fighting between Turkey and the Kurdistan Workers Party (P.K.K.) are crossing the border into Iraqi Kurdistan. Kurdistan has already taken over a million displaced Iraqis and Syrians fleeing the Islamic State.

In Mosul, five women were stoned to death for not complying with militant law.
Thirteen security personnel were killed and five were wounded during clashes in Baiji.
Clashes in Barwana left seven security members and 15 more wounded. Dozens of fighters were reported killed or wounded as well.
In Tal Kief, mortars killed seven Peshmerga.
