Turkish troops fighting terrorism in Iraq and Syria have occasionally been harassed and attacked by terrorists who wrongly believe that this can prevent Turkey from eradicating them. Nobody should doubt that such attacks will only boost Ankara's response, including taking steps Baghdad should take.
Despite receiving little global attention, Turkey's incursions across the widely depopulated Iraqi Kurdistan risk further destabilizing the region as its increased military presence is likely to embolden Iran to expand intelligence operations and military action in Iraq. Ankara has miscalculated the consequences of its steps and should halt its activities there.
