Turkish jets destroy PKK terror targets in N. Iraq

Turkish warplanes have destroyed several PKK terror targets in northern Iraq as part of an anti-terror operation, the military said on Thursday.

In a post on Twitter, the Turkish General Staff said the airstrikes were conducted in Hakurk, Avasin-Basyan, Sinath-Haftanin, Metina and Qandil regions of northern Iraq on Wednesday.

Weapon emplacements and shelters used by terrorists were destroyed during the operation, the statement added.

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 40,000 people, including women and children.
