Turkish Air Force jets carried out airstrikes on PKK terrorist bases in northern Iraq early Wednesday and in the rural area of Semdinli district of southeastern Sirnak province Tuesday, security sources said.

According to the sources who were not named according to Turkish government policy, a total of 13 war planes including F-16 and F-4 2020 fighter jets and a tanker aircraft carried out a raid on PKK positions in the Hakkurk region of northern Iraq.

During the operations, shelters, caves and gun emplacements were destroyed, said the sources.

More than 300 members of the security forces have been martyred since the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, resumed its 30-year armed campaign in July.

Thousands of PKK terrorists have also been killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
