Three Yazidi fighters killed in Turkish drone strike


A Turkish drone strike in northern Iraq early Tuesday killed three Yazidi fighters and wounded three more, the counter-terrorism service of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region said.

"A Turkish army drone targeted a headquarters of the Sinjar Resistance Units," it said, referring to an armed group operating in the mainly Yazidi Sinjar district which has ties to the rebel Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) that has been waging a deadly insurgency against the Turkish state for four decades.
