Turkish jets destroyed PKK targets in northern Iraq on Thursday, according to Anadolu Agency.

Warplanes killed a number of PKK terrorists in attacks from 2 p.m. local time (1100GMT) Wednesday in Iraq's Sinat-Haftanin and Metina regions, Turkish military reported.

The strikes followed a PKK attack on Turkish soldiers in Uludere, Sirnak province, in which four soldiers were martyred and nine wounded.

According to a Turkish General Staff statement, Turkish jets launched an air operation on the Sinat-Haftanin area and destroyed two PKK targets, including weapon emplacement and shelter on Saturday, reports World Bulletin.

The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015. Since then, more than 480 security personnel, including troops, police officers and village guards, have been martyred and over 4,900 PKK terrorists killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
