The Turkish Premier did tell the United States (and Iraq) to "back off" and the european nation hasn't ruled out a full scale incursions into Northern Iraq.

Sadly, a school has been destroyed in the airstrike.

I think Turkey need to stop annoying everybody. They need to tighten up their borders (I know it's tough but it keeps them out of Iraq), and keep the PKK out of Southern Turkey alltogether. They'd hardly be happy if coalition forces went into Turkey to chase down targets.

So they attacked 10 villages and only killed one woman, they definitely need better intel. Also about the school, I assume it was deserted and no one else was hurt?
