Turkish air strikes 'neutralize' 15 Kurdish militants: military

ISTANBUL, 02 June. - (ANA) - Air strikes by Turkish warplanes “neutralized” at least 15 militants of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq as well as in Turkey’s eastern provinces of Tunceli and Siirt, the military said on Saturday.

The strikes were carried out on Friday and Saturday, it said on Twitter.

Turkey regularly carries out air strikes on PKK targets over the border in northern Iraq, where the group is based in the Qandil mountains.

The PKK, considered a terrorist organization by the United States, the European Union and Turkey, has waged a three-decade insurgency in Turkey’s largely Kurdish southeast in which 40,000 people have been killed.   - (ANA) -
