ISTANBUL: Turkish warplanes struck 24 targets in a bombardment of Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) positions in the southeastern province of Hakkari late on Tuesday, the military said.
The targets ruined in border towns of Daglica and Yuksekova were mostly shelters and weapon emplacements, the military said on Wednesday in a statement.
Turkey is bombarding PKK positions in the mountains of northern Iraq in addition to the predominantly Kurdish southeast following the failure of a ceasefire in July in the state since the 1990s as well as the extreme fighting between Kurdish militants.
Because the ceasefire, started by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan more than two years back, broke down more than 120 security staff and numerous militants are killed.
Erdogan said on Tuesday more than 30 Kurdish militants were killed in cross border operations last Friday and added the effort would continue both within and outside the united states.
Three soldiers are wounded throughout the event.
