Turkey hits Kurdish militant targets in northern Iraq

Istanbul: Turkish air strikes hit Kurdish militant targets in northern Iraq, Ankara’s defence ministry said Tuesday.The ministry said on Twitter that “nine terrorists were neutralised” in air strikes in the Hakurk and Hafta regions.
There were earlier strikes, announced late Monday, in the northern Iraqi region of Gara, where “three terrorists were neutralised”.
The strikes were part of regular raids against Kurdish militants in Iraq and unrelated to planned operations against Kurdish forces in northern Syria. Turkey started a ground offensive and bombing campaign against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Iraq last May. (AFP)
