Turkish jets bomb PKK targets in northern Iraq
Turkish Air Force jets carried out airstrikes on PKK terrorist bases in northern Iraq on Wednesday, security sources said.
The sources said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media, 12 war planes, including F-16 and F-4 2020 fighter jets, destroyed 11 PKK targets in the Hakkurk, Haftanin and Avasin-Basyan regions, including shelters, caves and gun emplacements.
More than 300 members of the security forces have been martyred since the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, resumed its 30-year armed campaign in July.
Thousands of PKK terrorists have also been killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
