Turkish Warplanes Strike Suspected PKK Targets In Northern Iraq

Turkey's military says warplanes have bombed suspected Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq.

The military said the jets targeted caves and other hideouts in Iraq's Zap and Hakurk regions, near the border with Turkey, on February 11.

The statement said all planes returned to base safely but did not provide any details about damage or casualties.

Fighting between Turkish forces and rebels from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has escalated in recent months.

The PKK rebels, some of them based in northern Iraq, have been fighting for autonomy in Turkey's largely Kurdish southeast since 1984 in a conflict that has claimed about 45,000 lives.

hey jack-UssR :) Kurdish militants are not "freedom fighters". they are "captivate fighters", they are Maoist, Marxist, Leninist communists. They dont believe to any religion, only power.

Yeah, i accept that Turkey is a little more Fascist. But Kurdish militants are not "clean boys". This is a war. İf Kurds have war-planes, they will bomb on Turkish military bases, but they have not. God likes Turks, give them some planes. And to Kurds, his highness give them AK-47 and millions of men population. This is a war, between fascist-nationalist Turks and communist Kurds.
