In late July, Turkey launched a military campaign against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in northern Iraq following two murders of police officers in the southern city of Ceylanpinar. The PKK claimed responsibility for the Ceylanpinar killings, saying the policemen had backed the Islamic State extremist group.
