Turkish fighter jets killed at least three PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the military said in a statement late Tuesday.

According to the statement, the terrorists, who were reportedly planning an attack, were “neutralized” in air raids in Zap area. 

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq -- where the terrorist group has its main base in Mt. Qandil running along the Iranian border -- and southeastern Turkey have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when it resumed its armed campaign.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and U.S. -- has killed more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
