Iraq Weekly Roundup: Ten Killed

Ten people were killed and, at least, 22 more were wounded in recent violence:

In Makhmour, fighting broke out between Kurdish Peshmerga servicemembers and Iraqi Army soldiers, after Kurdistan Workers’ Party (P.K.K.) guerrillas evacuated their base in the area. The territory was apparently handed over to the army first, but the Peshmerga then tried to take it as well, claiming authority over it. Clashes took place over a couple of hours. Two Peshmerga and two soldiers were killed; six soldiers were wounded. Twelve Peshmerga were wounded as well.

A undisclosed number of American troops were lightly injured during a drone attack on their base at al-Asad Base in western Iraq. Some of the servicemembers, however, are being evaluated for brain injuries. Local reports stated that a contractor died of a heart attack during the bombing. Missiles also fell near a Coalition base at Baghdad International Airport.

A Turkish drone targeting Kurdistan Workers’ Party (P.K.K.) guerrillas killed a man and injured three women traveling in a car. Reports indicated that victims are civilians all from the same family.

One P.K.K. guerrilla was killed, and another was wounded in a Turkish strike in Koya.

Unknown assailants in Mosul killed a man operating a generator.

Two militants were killed during operations in Wadi al-Shay.
