The Press Office of the People’s Defence Forces (HPG) reported continued actions against the Turkish army in the guerrilla-held Medya Defense Zones in southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq).

According to the HPG statement on Monday, guerrillas struck the Turkish occupation forces in the Girê Cûdî Resistance Area in Şehîd Delîl Western Zap region.

Of the total of eight actions carried out on 13 August, three were carried out by the guerrillas of YJA Star (Free Women’s Troops), who stopped an advance of the Turkish troops twice by using heavy weapons. Strikes by the YJA Star guerrillas left three soldiers dead and one other injured.

Further attacks against the Turkish invading forces were concentrated on the military positions in the field. Four strikes by the guerrillas left a soldier dead. In addition, the guerrillas targeted a transport helicopter. Due to heavy shelling, the aircraft had to turn around without completing a mission to airdrop troops.

HPG also reported continued attacks by the Turkish army in the guerrilla areas. Accordingly, Turkish fighter jets carried out five strikes on the areas of Şehîd Delîl Western Zap region, the resistance areas of Girê Bahar and Girê Amediyê, and Girê Ortê in Metîna.

On the other hand, various areas in the Zap region were targeted by artillery attacks on 13 August.
