The report also indicated that 101 PKK fighters were killed in the confrontations in Afshin, Matina, and Zab, 32 other members were killed with Turkish chemical weapons.

“the main reason behind the withdrawal of the Turkish army is the intensive military operations launched by the PKK forces in the combat zones where the Party prevents the Turkish army from achieving its goals.” The report added.

PKK is designated a terrorist group by Ankara, the European Union, and the United States.
