Turkish air force destroys PKK targets in country's southeast

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Turkish military destroyed nine PKK terrorist targets in southeastern Şemdinli district near the Iraqi border as part of the ongoing counter-terror operations in the region, military sources said on Saturday, September 10, according to the Daily Sabah.

According to the sources, Turkish jets carried out airstrikes against the PKK targets in Hakkari province and safely returned to their bases following the operation.

Turkey has been carrying out anti-terror operations in the country's east and southeast, in response to PKK terrorist attacks which target police, military, as well as civilians.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.

Since then, more than 600 security personnel, including troops, police officers, and village guards, and over 7,700 PKK terrorists have been killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
