ADDS TURKISH AIRSTRIKES ON QANDIL ON SUNDAY

ANKARA (AA) – Turkish Armed Forces jets hit terrorist PKK targets in Iraq and southeastern Turkey on Tuesday, according to the military.

Military sources said early Wednesday that shelters in the Qandil region of northern Iraq and a terrorist unit in the southeast Turkish province of Diyarbakir were hit.

Nine targets in the Qandil region were destroyed by Turkish jets.

It is also stated that a group of PKK terrorists was hit in Diyarbakir's Lice district. Turkish fighter jets bombed four targets including PKK shelters and a group of terrorists in the area.

The air force also carried out a series of operations on Sunday in the Qandil region, killing at least 22 terrorists, a security source speaking on condition of anonymity said.

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.
