Turkish Military Hits Kurdish Targets In Iraq Again

Turkish warplanes and artillery attacked suspected Kurdish rebel bases in Iraq overnight for the second time in as many days.

Turkey's General Staff released a statement that said "in coordination with the air operation, intense artillery fire was directed at 96 targets identified in the same areas [of Iraq]."

The Turkish military said warplanes hit 28 targets inside Iraq during these latest raids.

The attacks are a response to an increase in attacks in Turkey by the Kurdish Workers' Party that have killed some 40 Turkish soldiers since the start of July.
