Turkish jets “neutralize” 10 PKK militants in N. Iraq

ISTANBUL, Turkish jets “neutralized” 10 PKK militants as part of counter-terrorism operations in northern Iraq, the army said on Wednesday.

In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the warplanes had conducted airstrikes targeting the terror group in the Avasin-Basyan region on Tuesday.

The PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.

Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children.
