Turkish fighter jets have killed five PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the military said on Wednesday.
According to an information note from the Turkish General Staff, the armed terrorists, who were reportedly planning an attack, were killed in an air raid in Zap area.
Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq -- where the terrorist group has its main base in Mt. Qandil running along the Iranian border -- and southeastern Turkey have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when it resumed its armed campaign.
The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and U.S. -- has killed more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
