Turkish soldiers cross into Iraq


news.bbc.co.uk

About 300 Turkish troops have crossed into northern Iraq in a raid against Kurdish rebels, Iraqi officials say.

The lightly-armed soldiers moved up to three kilometres (1.9 miles) inside Iraq, an Iraqi Kurdish official said.

It is believed to be the first major Turkish troop deployment in Iraq since the cabinet backed the move last month to hunt PKK rebels based there.

Sounds like Turkey is starting to get its feet wet with the issue to test international response.

If this blows over without backlash look for more of these types of head lines to show up with larger operations and extended occupation.

According to MSNBC


"They are going there as reinforcements, they are not returning," the official said on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the media.


Apparently the Turkish soldiers are going there to back up existing ones deeper inside Iraq, and as many as 50 fighter jets were involved in the attack, the biggest against the PKK in years.
