Turkish airstrikes in N. Iraq kill 4 PKK terrorists

Baku, July 1, AZERTAC

Turkish airstrikes have killed four PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the General Staff said Saturday, according to Anadolu Agency.

According to a Turkish General Staff statement, the airstrikes were carried out in the Avasin Basyan region.

In recent days Turkish officials have suggested that the Mt. Qandil region -- where the terrorist group has its headquarters -- may be the target of a future operation.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people.
