Turkish Air Forces airstrikes destroyed two PKK shelters and one ammunition depot in northern Iraq late Sunday, said the military.

A Turkish General Staff statement said forces launched an airstrike in the Hakurk area of northern Iraq on Sunday, destroying the PKK-held property.

Separately, security forces seized one machine gun, one infantry rifle, one RPG-7 rocket launcher, and 50 kilograms of ammonium nitrate in the Kagizman district of Turkey's northeastern Kars province, the statement said.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015. Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of around 1,200 people, including women and children.
