The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) announced that it has raised the level of a military drill it has been conducting near the Turkish-Iraqi border for the past six days. The military said it will now hold the 'second stage' of the drill, the exercise will continue with the participation of additional troops. The military exercises started on Monday - just a week before the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) holds a controversial independence referendum - near the town of Silopi, close to the Habur border gate between Turkey and the Iraqi Kurdish region. The military did not provide details on the drill but said anti-terror operations in the region would simultaneously continue at the same speed as the exercises.
