Turkish fighter jets have neutralized 34 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq in a swift action operation that was launched on Monday by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the terror group has its main base in the Mt. Qandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the terrorist PKK resumed its armed campaign.
While the causalities reported include several airstrikes before the official flag off by the president, 12 of the targets were destroyed in the late hours of Monday in the same area.
PKK terror organization listed as such by the EU and US has been active in Turkey for more than three decades and has claimed the lives of over 40,000 people.
