ANKARA (AA) - A weapon emplacement belonging to the terrorist organization PKK has been destroyed by Turkish fighter jets in the Sinat-Haftanin area of northern Iraq, security sources said.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity as they are not authorized to speak to the media, said that Turkish jets launched an air operation on the Sinat-Haftanin area on Wednesday.
In related news, Turkish jets also destroyed three PKK targets, including a weapon emplacement and shelters, in Turkey's southeastern province of Mardin.

The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization also by 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.
