    At least 32 fighters of Daesh group were killed on Tuesday after an attack on a Turkish tank, local media reported Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Turkish Armed Forces retaliated Daesh attack at the Bashiqa camp in northern Iraq, where Turkish forces trained and equipped Iraqi forces to fight Islamists, Daily Sabah newspaper reported.

    The newspaper added that Daesh attack caused no casualties, but the retaliatory strike killed 32 terrorists and destroyed five vehicles and three motorcycles.

    On December 4, Turkey deployed about 150 troops and 25 tanks to northern Iraq reportedly to help national forces to reclaim the city of Mosul Daesh, prohibited in Russia and many other countries.

    Following the deployment, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi demanded the withdrawal of the Turkish troops, sent into the Bashiqa camp without Baghdad’s approval.
