Iraqi Kurds Ask Kurdish Workers Party to 'withdraw'

Saturday, 01 August 2015 07:19 AM

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's Kurdish Regional Government says the Kurdish Worker's Party should "withdraw" from Iraq's Kurdish territory to prevent the death of civilians.

A statement Saturday from the office of Kurdish President Massoud Barzani also condemned Turkey for bombing civilians, following reports that civilian homes were damaged in airstrikes in northwestern Iraq. The statement calls on both sides to resume peace talks.

Turkey launched airstrikes on Kurdish rebel camps in northern Iraq last week, its first such strikes since a peace process with the Kurds was launched in 2012.
