Turkish fighter jets continued hitting PKK terrorist targets on second day in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

The Turkish airstrikes destroyed weapon positions, shelters, and ammunition dumps used by PKK terrorists in the Avasin-Basyan region, the ministry said. On Monday, the airstrikes had pounded on PKK terrorist installations in the Hakurk region.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women and children.
