Turkish warplanes strike PKK in N Iraq
Turkish warplanes attacked PKK in northern Iraq on Monday, Iraqi security officials said on Tuesday, bombing a mountainous area that is base of PKK militants.

Jabbar Yawar, spokesman for Peshmerga security forces in Iraq's largely autonomous Kurdistan region, said the warplanes struck an area near Nerwa Wa Rekan, a village in the northern province of Dahuk.

There were no reports of any casualties.

An Iraqi border guard said it was an artillery attack, not a bombing by airplanes.

The Turkish military has regularly attacked PKK targets of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in the mountains of northern Iraq, where several thousand militants are believed to be holed up.
