Turkish jets carried out airstrikes Tuesday on several targets in northern Iraq, where the the terrorist organization PKK has numerous mountain bases, military sources said.
F-16 and F-4 2020 fighter jets hit hideouts and underground ammunition depots belonging to PKK members in Sina and Haftanin towns, according to the military sources.
The PKK -- designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and EU -- renewed its armed campaign against the Turkish state in the aftermath of the July 20 suicide bombing in Suruc that killed 33 pro-Kurdish activists.
In response, the Turkish government has been conducting an extensive anti-terrorism effort by bombing PKK camps at home and in northern Iraq, including the Qandil Mountain, and by striking Daesh in Syria.
