Turkish jets destroy PKK terror targets in N. Iraq

Turkish airstrikes on Thursday hit PKK terrorist targets in northern Iraq, according to Turkey's National Defense Ministry.

Air operations in the regions of Avasin-Basyan, and Gara destroyed weapon positions, shelters and ammunition depots used by the PKK terrorists, the ministry said on Twitter.

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 many women and children.
