Turkey releases video from Iraq invasion (VIDEO)

The Turkish Defense Ministry has released footage of its military offensive against Kurdish forces in northern Iraq. Ankara launched its latest campaign against the militants, who it considers terrorists, on Sunday evening.

NATO-member Turkey labels the assault a "special operation."

The video shows fighter jets, attack helicopters, artillery, and ground forces in action. Most of the footage was filmed with night vision equipment.

The Turkish campaign, ‘Operation Claw-Lock’, is a cross-border action by Turkish forces targeting Kurdish militants in northern Iraq. Ankara considers the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG) terrorist organizations. The ongoing operation focused on the regions of Metina, Zap, and Avasin-Basyan, the Turkish military reported.
