[10-point thread🧵] . . .
1️⃣ KRG @masrour_barzani met @RTErdogan this weekend to discuss 🇹🇷’s military operation and gas exportation (🇮🇶>🇹🇷&🇪🇺)

Yesterday Barzani visited London. He seeks purchasing guarantees, investment & reassurances against Iran 🇮🇷/PKK, as both are against the exportation of Iraq gas.
2️⃣ The 🇹🇷 operation aims to eliminate PKK strongholds, incl. training camps and ammunition/storage facilities in Zap, Avasin, Metina & Basyan. KRG Peshmerga support it and 🇹🇷 uses drones, land-to-air and limited ground troops. For the moment, it’s not engaging Sinjar nor Kandil.
