Turkish warplanes destroyed targets of the terrorist PKK group in northern Iraq on Thursday, the military has said.

In a statement Friday, the Turkish General Staff said its jets attacked terror group's shelters, bunkers and weapons dumps in the Qandil Mountains.

Speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, military sources said that Turkish warplanes carried out airstrikes against the PKK between 9.00 p.m. and 9.45 p.m. [1800-1845 GMT] local time Thursday.

Turkish F-16 and F-4 2020 warplanes safely returned to base after hitting exact positions, the military added.
