ANKARA (AA) - Turkish warplanes have killed 14 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq's Metina region between May 25 and 29, the Turkish army said Tuesday.
The Turkish General Staff said in a statement that 14 terrorists had been killed and three shelters destroyed.
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, around 500 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.
