Iraq on Tuesday canceled a visit to the country by the Turkish defense minister that was scheduled for Thursday, the Iraqi foreign ministry said in a statement, according to Al Arabiya English service.

The ministry also summoned the Turkish ambassador to hand him “a strong protest note and inform him of Iraq’s confirmed rejection of his country’s attacks and violations,” the statement added.

A Turkish drone strike on Tuesday in the Sidakan area in northeastern Iraq, near the Turkish and Iranian borders, killed two high-ranking officers from Iraq’s border guard and the driver of their vehicle, the Iraqi military said.
