Turkey’s air force has carried out airstrikes on PKK terrorist bases in northern Iraq, the military said on Tuesday.
In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said eight F-16 and F-4 jets on Monday night bombed PKK positions in Qandil, where the group has its main headquarters.
A number of shelters, bunkers and arsenals were destroyed between 9 and 11 p.m. [1800-2000GMT], the statement said.
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 350 members of the security forces have been martyred and thousands of terrorists killed.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
