World Bulletin / News Desk

At least four PKK terrorists were killed in airstrikes carried out by Turkish jets in northern Iraq on Monday, according to military sources. 

The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking with the media, said early Tuesday that four terrorists were "neutralized" and another was injured during an attack by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) in the village of Kesta, close to the Turkish border.

A PKK ammunition depot was also destroyed, the sources added.

Turkish jets have been carrying out airstrikes against PKK positions across the border in Iraq, since the group – considered a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July last year.

Since then, PKK terrorist attacks have killed more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of many civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists were killed in army operations.​
