lodging officer and these are the top stories right now china and india are trying to calm tensions after a deadly clash over a border dispute both sides say no shots were fired by 20 indian soldiers were killed in a mass brawl iron bars and wooden clubs were used as weapons. or korea has warned it will redeploy troops near the border and resume military exercises along frontline areas blames the south for bad behavior and justify blowing up an enter korean liaison office on tuesday. a high level delegation from turkey has made a surprise trip to libya to meet the internationally recognized government in tripoli ankara as the administration's main backer and its fight against for what they call. list all soldiers have been killed in an attack and northern afghanistan
5:17 pm
it took place in an army post and on province another 5 soldiers have been held hostage the taliban who claimed responsibility for the attack says the death toll is higher. turkey has launched another military offensive against armed kurdish separatist and northern iraq and pro deployed troops to the hotton region near the border to fight the p.k. k. warplanes have also targeted the cripps positions around $3000.00 fighters are believed to be and northern iraq turkey the u.s. and the e.u. all list the p k k as a terrorist group simcoe solo has more from istanbul. today's operation is different compared to the one that happened 2 days ago because this time ground forces are also in place and they have been accompanied by the turkish air forces for pimpin to point operations targeting the bases ammunition depots sent $36.00 points of the out those could sound workers' party what makes this operations
5:18 pm
a special is turkey is aiming to cut the logistic loops of the p.k. k. from iraq to syria because for turkey p k k and the syrian kurdish fighters group y p g r r organically it's hard to each other and there is an ammunition and weapons transfer between 2 sides from from the wipe e.g. to iraq and one day those weapons can be turned against turkey and that's why turkey is trying to eliminate the p.k. fighters they have bases and as i said that the logistic routes. between is syria and iraq this is the idea of the operation and. these operations have been recently conducted have been in touch have been conducted in cooperation with the turkish intelligence agency before turkish intelligence agency didn't have any authority for course wardrop rationed but in the last couple of years with the presidential system they are authorized to cooperate with the military and they have been
5:19 pm
providing ifield intelligence and turkish drones have been active in the area and when you speak to the military experts they say the success of the ration is based on the drones armed and on armed aerial vehicles in the area providing information every day and not of alton as in baghdad just as the lack of reaction from authorities is being interpreted by sound is welcoming the operation. well we still don't have an official statement neither from the iraqi government here in baghdad nor from kurdish authorities in iraqi kurdistan we in fact called the spokesperson of the joint operations command here in baghdad which is the entity that is supposed to govern all military activity in iraq and he quote said he had no information unquote at the moment about the incident and of course all of this is made more difficult because the areas where these operations are taking place are under the control of the semi autonomous kurdish government and what is interesting
5:20 pm
that we haven't heard anything come out for but neither the k d p which is the kurdish democratic party which coincidentally has the ministry of foreign affairs currently inside the iraqi government nor from the p u k and the way some people interpreted this is that in fact the kurdish authorities have welcomed these operations because in fact they don't really want the presence of p.k. k. fighters on their ground either what is particularly interesting in this case of this appears to be not just a turkish operation there appears to be also some iranian involvement and we have spoken to a kurdish general who is in charge of the border areas with turkey and iran and he said that actually iran has participated in these operations through artillery strikes and that these artillery strikes are still ongoing and the areas that appear to be targeted are either belonging to the p.k. k. or to some iranian opposition groups. the u.s.
