Turkish jets hit PKK terror targets


Turkish fighter jets continued hitting PKK terrorist targets in northern Iraq under the scope of Operation Claw, the National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday, Yenisafak reports.

The Turkish airstrikes destroyed weapon positions, shelters, and ammunition dumps used by PKK terrorists in the Hakurk region, the ministry said.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women and children.
