Turkish jets strike PKK bases in northern Iraq
Turkey’s air force carried out airstrikes on PKK terrorist bases in northern Iraq on two separate operations on Friday and Saturday, the military said.
In a statement on its website, the Turkish General Staff said 20 F-16 and F-4 jets bombed positions in the Sinat, Haftanin and Gara regions on Friday night.
A total of 10 jets also hit the organization's bases in Gara in the early hours of Saturday.
The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against Turkey in July. Since then, more than 290 members of the security forces have been martyred and thousands of terrorists killed.
