Turkish jets destroy PKK targets in northern Iraq
Turkish jets destroyed PKK targets in northern Iraq, the military said Tuesday, Anadolu reported.
A statement by the Turkish General Staff revealed at least five terrorists were killed during the operation today between 1.40 p.m. and 2.00 p.m. local time (1040-1100GMT).
The destroyed targets included shelters and weapons dumps, the army said.
The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year.
Since then, PKK terrorist attacks have martyred more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of many civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed in army operations.
