Last weekend, the peace in northern Iraqi town of Zargali was shattered when Turkish warplanes bombed the area as part of their assault on the Kurdistan Workers Party – a separatist group based in Iraq that aims to carve out an independent Kurdish region in southern Turkey.

There have been allegations that numerous civilians were killed, claims denied by the Turks.

In a visit undertaken by few foreign journalists, IRIN travelled to the village to see the damage caused.
