Turk troops clash with Kurd security forces in Iraq

ARBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Turkish troops inside northern Iraq fought gunbattles with Iraqi Kurdish security forces on Thursday, a senior Iraqi Kurdish official said.

Fouad Hussein, head of the office of the president of Iraq’s Kurdistan region, said Turkish troops tried to move tanks from a base that has long been inside northern Iraq, but Kurdish Peshmerga forces tried to stop them. A gunbattle erupted, he said, adding it was unclear if there were casualties.
