Turkish air strike against Kurdish PKK in Iraqi Kurdistan

DIYARBAKIR,  AFP – 9.10.2012 – Turkish jets bombed Kurdish rebel hideouts in Iraq’s Kurdistan region overnight, Turkish military sources told AFP, but it was not immediately clear if there were any casualties.

At least 12 F-16 fighter jets took off from the Diyarbakir base in the southeast and targeted four camps in the Turkish-Iraqi border area of Qandil Mountains and the surrounding area where the leadership of the outlawed Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) is believed to be hiding, the sources added.
