Turkish planes bomb Kurd positions in Iraq

Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish targets in northern Iraq, state media says.

Turkish air force jets launched strikes against targets of the “separatist terrorist organization” in Gara in northern Iraq, Anadolu news agency said, referring to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

The targets were “destroyed,” Anadolu adds.

The airstrikes in northern Iraq were the first since Turkey began a military operation in Syria on Wednesday.

The PKK is considered a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States and its command is based in the Qandil mountains of northern Iraq.
