Today's news on Turkey's invasion

Today's war news from Iraq, including info on the Turkish army's actions against the PKK in the Qandil mountains.

Kurds dig in against invasion, says this Washington Post/Reuters article, including that a Turkish helicopter was shot down.

[The Qandil mountains are a] rugged and largely inaccessible swath of mountains along the border, an area inside Iraqi territory but uncontrolled by any nation...

"If Turkey comes farther than they are now, then 100 per cent we will stop them," said Major-General Hashim Sitae, a peshmerga commander in the northern city of Dahuk.

Is Kirkuk in the Turkish line of fire? asks Kurdish Aspect. I doubt it.
