Turkish airstrikes on Friday hit PKK terrorist targets in northern Iraq as part of the ongoing Operation Claw, officials said.

The jets pounded weapon positions, shelters, and ammunition depots used by terrorists in Zap region, the National Defense Ministry said in a tweet.

The Turkish Armed Forces launched Operation Claw against the PKK terror group on Monday.

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 some 40,000 people, including women and children.
