The Arab League (AL) condemned on Tuesday the successive Turkish strikes against posts in northern Iraq, stressing that such action is a violation to the sovereignty of the Iraqi State. 

The AL voiced its rejection of the Turkish strikes, regardless the motives behind them, affirming that the attacks contradict with the rules of international law and the principles of good-neighborliness, AL spokesman Mahmoud Afifi said on Tuesday.

The Arab summit has previously issued several resolutions denouncing the violation of the Iraqi sovereignty in such way, Afifi added.

Turkey's constant disregard to the Arab stance reflects that Ankara does not care about keeping on good terms with the Arab countries on the basis of respect for states' sovereignty and rejection of the interference in other states' internal affairs, Afifi added.


Turkey conducted an airstrike on PKK targets in Northern Iraq past Thursday.
