Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters reportedly attacked Kurdish peshmerga soldiers in Iraq on Wednesday. The incident took place at a time of both tensions and reconciliation between Kurdish parties in the region.
The PKK attacked peshmerga forces in Dahuk province in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region. One soldier died while two were injured, the Erbil-based news outlet Rudaw reported. Dahuk is a stronghold of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), and peshmerga forces in the area are associated with the party. The attack involved “gunfire” and took place in the Chamanke region, according to the outlet.
