Turkish military destroyed PKK terrorist camps in northern Iraq late Tuesday, security sources said Wednesday.
According to the sources, four F-16s and two F-4 combat aircraft belonging to the Turkish Armed forces hit PKK’s Avasin-Basyan, Gare and Zap camps in northern Iraq.
Turkish warplanes destroyed the shelters and warehouses after they were identified by drones. The operation was also supported by early warning and control aircraft, sources added.
The PKK -- designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- renewed its armed campaign against the Turkish state in the aftermath of a July 20 suicide bombing in the southern Turkish city of Suruc that killed 33 people.
In response, the Turkish government has been conducting an extensive counter-terrorism effort, bombing PKK camps inside Turkey and in northern Iraq while also striking the Daesh terrorist group in Syria.
