PKK commanders killed in Turkish airstrike in northern Iraq
Turkey says it has killed 30 Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants during airstrikes in northern Iraq.
According to a statement released by the Turkish army’s General Staff, two militant positions were hit in Iraq’s Qandil Mountains.
The statement noted that several high ranking PKK members were among those killed.
Earlier in the day, at least two Turkish soldiers were killed in fresh clashes with the Kurdish militants in Turkey’s volatile southeast.
On Saturday, over 100 members of the PKK were killed or wounded in clashes with Turkish army forces in the region.
Turkish military forces have been conducting ground operations as well as airstrikes against PKK positions in Turkey’s troubled southeastern border region and Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region over the past year.
