Turkish airstrikes in N. Iraq kill 4 PKK terrorists

ANKARA (Anadolu Agency): Turkish airstrikes have killed four PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the General Staff said Saturday.

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.
